Fictional history

Before the Corps

Main articles: Parallax (comics), Sinestro, and Green Lantern: Rebirth

The Parallax entity is a space parasite that is the embodiment of fear that was imprisoned within the Central Power Battery on Oa. As time passed, the entity became known as the yellow impurity, the cause for the Green Lantern's weakness with the color yellow.[1] Parallax is a fictional character, a supervillain from DC Comics. ... Sinestro is a fictional character, an alien supervillain in the DC Comics Universe. ... For other uses of Oa and oa, see OA. Oa is a fictional planet located at the center of the DC Comics Universe. ...


After Sinestro went rogue, he was banished by the Guardians of the Universe to Qward in the Antimatter universe. When he returned, he wielded a power ring which used yellow energy. After various encounters with Earth's Green Lantern Hal Jordan, he was imprisoned within the Central Power Battery. There he was able to use his ring, which uses fear, as opposed to willpower, as a power source, to awaken Parallax from hibernation. From here, Parallax and Sinestro were able to influence the fall of Hal Jordan and instigate the fall of the Green Lantern Corps, leaving one last Green Lantern: Kyle Rayner.[2][3] The Guardians of the Universe are fictional characters in the DC Comics universe. ... Qward is a fictional world existing within an antimatter universe that is part of the DC Comics universe. ...

Recruitment drive

After the Green Lantern Corps was restarted with the return of Hal Jordan,[4] the Sinestro Corps began actively recruiting members, offering yellow power rings and a role in the Corps to those who can "instill great fear". Members of the Corps are immediately taken to Qward to "...be subjected to psychological and physical reconditioning". The members of the Sinestro Corps work in sectors like the GLC. Qward also has a huge yellow Central Battery on its surface like the one used on Oa.[5] Although the Sinestro Corps uses fear and opposes the Green Lantern Corps and the Guardians, Sinestro has stated their goal is to bring order to the universe, which he claimed the Guardians have failed to do. Hal Jordan is a fictional character, a DC Comics superhero. ...

The Sinestro Corps gather on Qward.

Arkillo, a large and muscular vicious alien is enslaving all the Qwardian Weaponeers and forcing them to continuously build new yellow rings which are programmed to breach the barrier between the Antimatter and matter universes to find and recruit new ring-wielders. Arkillo also serves as the Sinestro Corps' drill sergeant, similar to Kilowog's role in the GLC.[6] Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

During this time, the Sinestro Corps attempted to recruit Batman, known even to some alien races for his formidable ability to instill fear in others. However, Batman's willpower combined with his previous brief exposure to a power ring allowed him to reject the yellow ring before it took him to be properly trained and molded into one of Sinestro's soldiers. The yellow ring then sought a replacement and selected Amon Sur, the disgruntled son of Abin Sur, who was on Earth attempting to steal Hal Jordan's ring.[8] Batman (originally referred to as the Bat-Man and still referred to at times as the Batman) is a DC Comics fictional superhero who first appeared in Detective Comics #27 in May 1939. ...

It was revealed that after untold millennia, the Weaponers of Qward, Ranx the Sentient City, the Children of the White Lobe, and the Empire of Tears will rise united against the Green Lantern Corps.[9] This was largely ignored up until upgraded Manhunters started to appear throughout the universe. Hal Jordan encountered one on Earth and, with Guy Gardner, followed their trail to Sector 3601. Hal and Guy found several Green Lanterns, all of who were assumed to have been killed during the Emerald Twilight saga, and the Manhunters' new grandmaster Hank Henshaw, the Cyborg Superman. The Manhunters were defeated and Henshaw's head was brought to Oa.[10] The Book of Oa has a forbidden chapter on cosmic Revelations, which included the following prophecy: Ranx the Sentient City is a supervillain in the DC Comics universe. ...

Hal, Graf, and Tomar defeat Lyssa Drak and free John and Guy, draining Hal’s power ring in the process. Hal breaks into a nearby factory and takes control of ten yellow power rings, using his experience as Parallax’s host to power them. Hal and the others attempt to escape, but are stopped by a contingent of the Sinestro Corps, which includes Amon Sur, Parallax and Sinestro. Sinestro has several Manhunters drain the energy from Hal’s rings, depowering them. The "Lost Lanterns" learn that the Anti-Monitor is performing experiments on the Ion entity.

Oath

When recharging their power rings, members of the Sinestro Corps recite the following oath:

In blackest day, in brightest night,
Beware your fears made into light
Let those who try to stop what's right,
Burn like my power*... Sinestro's might!

—Sinestro, Green Lantern: Sinestro Corps Special #1 (2007)

  • "My power" becomes "his power" when recited by other members of the Corps.

Weapons and Equipment

Main Article: Power ring

Members of the Sinestro Corps use yellow power rings built on Qward. Unlike a Green Lantern's power ring, yellow power rings are fueled by fear instead of willpower. The yellow rings are charged by Manhunter androids that have yellow power batteries built into themselves, which in turn are connected to a large yellow Power Battery based on Qward. The rings have no known weaknesses, unlike a Green Lantern power ring's previous vulnerability to yellow. Also, the yellow rings are not restricted from killing sentient beings as the Green Lantern's power rings were. Since the Guardians of the Universe have authorized the use of lethal force, the yellow rings no longer have this advantage. The three of the four (Alan Scotts Starheart powered ring exlcuded) known variants of the power ring Zamaron (magenta), Oan (green), and Qwardian (yellow). ...


Training

Prior to becoming members, candidates must face their deepest fear. Their rings are deprived of any power by the Book of Parallax. They then enter Fear Lodges where they must produce a spark of light from their ring by confronting their deepest fear. Upon doing so, they will be clothed in a Sinestro Corps uniform, obtain a yellow lantern and the lodge opens. Some candidates have died of thirst and starvation trying to escape, cut out their eyes or committed suicide in the lodges. Before beginning their training, Sinestro Corps recruits wear copies of Sinestro's original blue uniform.
