|~ Hector Hammond|
Hector Hammond is an antagonist from DC Comics, and one of the main antagonists of the Green Lantern series. Acting as the archenemy to Hal Jordan.
Hector Hammond was nothing more than a petty criminal. While he was laying low in the California Hill of Nebraska, he discovered a glowing meteor (simply called the "Meteorite") that had been evolving nearby plants into a form that would not exist for over 100,000 years. The other half of the meteorite landed in North America years ago and evolved the local apes into the scientific race that would found Gorilla City. Hector took the meteorite back to his hideout, and then decided to captured four prominent scientists and exposed them to the meteor. Being exposed to the meteorite the scientists evolved into future-men who he forced to create fantastic inventions. This allowed Hector to take credit for the work and become a celebrity. Eventually, Hector decided to expose himself to the rays of the meteor, evolving himself into a future-man.
