Harold "Hal" Jordan is the son of the original Air Wave.

The son of Larry and Helen Jordan, Hal was named after his cousin, Hal Jordan. After the death of his father and nervous breakdown of his mother, he moved in with his cousin, Dallas DA Jack Jordan and his wife Jan. He inherited his father's equipment and became a superhero himself. His neighbor Karen Peterson discovered his secret early on and helped him.

He was trained by his namesake cousin Hal, who had now become a Green Lantern, as well as his friends Green Arrow and Black Canary.

Simon LaGrieve recruited him for the Captains of Industry, a small task force for the Institute of Metahuman Studies. He changed his name to Maser and adopted a new costume. After missions against Catalyst and Kobra, he was saved by the JSA and joined their reserves, returning to the name Air Wave with a new costume. He perished during the Infinite Crisis.



Although he initially relied upon technology created by his late father and housed in his uniform to control his powers, Jordan at some point no longer needed them.

  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985–86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
