Fictional character Biography

History

A neurosurgeon by trade, Natu, like the rest of her race, saw the Green Lanterns and everything associated with them as a symbol of oppression, because the first Korugaran to have been a Green Lantern was the renegade Sinestro. Sinestro, unbeknownst to his superiors, the Guardians of the Universe, who recruit and administrate the Green Lantern Corps, used his GL power ring to enslave his people and rule over them as a dictator. As a result, he is known among Korugarans as “The Wicked.” Although Sinestro’s crimes were eventually exposed to the Guardians by Earth's Green Lantern Hal Jordan, and he was imprisoned as a result, the Green Lantern power ring and logo became to the Korugarans what the Nazi swastika represents to the people of Earth. When another Korugaran, Katma Tui, subsequently became a Green Lantern, this did nothing to restore the Green Lanterns' image. Rather, Tui was seen as a monster by her own people for allying herself with them, even after she eventually gave her life in the line of duty, and is known among the Korugarans as “The Lost.” Neurosurgery is the surgical discipline focused on treating the central and peripheral nervous system. ...

The Corps suffered devastation when the demonic parasitic entity known as Parallax took control of Hal Jordan, turning him into a psychotic mass-murderer, and killing almost all the other members of the Corps, including all the Guardians but one, Ganthet. The ranks of the Guardians were eventually restored by Jordan's replacement, Kyle Rayner, and after the Parallax entity was removed from Jordan, and Jordan restored as a Green Lantern, the Guardians set about to repopulate the ranks of the Corps, searching for 7,200 new Green Lanterns. When Tarkus Whin, the Green Lantern of space Sector 1417 (of which Korugar is also a part) was killed on his first day as a GL after Star 196 collapsed into a black hole, his ring sought out a replacement, and found Dr. Natu in the middle of delicate neurosurgery on her home planet, Korugar.

Green Lantern of Korugar

Natu was horrified at the appearance of the ring, and rejected it, but when her patient’s condition immediately began to worsen before her, Natu, desperate to save him, took the ring, and used it to conjure an elaborate medical apparatus that saved him, though her comrades in the operating room felt that by accepting the ring, she had damned herself. Although she allowed the ring to take her to the planet Oa, which serves as the headquarters of the Guardians, she soon left, refusing to be inducted. However, on her way back to Korugar, she was haunted by thoughts of Tarkus Whin, because the rites of death are sacred on Korugar. Her ring took her to the black hole that had been star 1417.196, which sucked her in as it had Whin. She found herself at unknown location devoid of light, and found Whin’s corpse. Sensing that his killers were coming for him, and realizing that Tarkus’ ring obviously was not able to protect him, Natu demonstrated an impressive presence of mind and an ingenious level of creative thinking by swallowing her ring, ordering it to slow her vital processes and store her lifeforce within itself, so that she would appear to be another lump of organic waste to the spider-like creatures that took her. Her brain functions minimal, she remembered ordering the ring to send rescue signals when it was safe, and to respond to nearby power rings. When Kyle Rayner and his fellow Earth Green Lantern Guy Gardner found Natu, she came back to life. Rayner and Gardner convinced her to honor Whin’s memory by accepting the role of a Green Lantern.

Natu again demonstrated her emotional control when, during a battle against a horde of mechanical spiders and a group of bounty hunters, her ring faltered, because of the Parallax Fear Anomaly, which makes GL power rings ineffective against anything yellow during times of fear or panic, until and unless the Lantern can muster their courage. With her fellow GL’s power rings depleted in power, it fell to Natu to save them, which she did, by encasing them all in an energy sphere and retreating the Spider Guild’s Nest. Realizing that Oa’s sun was the Guild’s next target, the five Lanterns, along with Lanterns Green Man and Stel, raced back to Oa where the Spider Guild had already begun an attack on the planet, which Natu and her fellow GL's successfully repelled.

As of the One Year Later timeframe, Natu has completed her training and become an active member of the Corps. After seeking advice from Mogo, she elected to return to her homeworld and continue her work as a surgeon along with her Green Lantern duties. This has met with considerable resistance from her former colleagues, who find her use of the Green Lantern power offensive. After using her power ring in a surgery room again, she was forbidden to practice medicine on her home planet forever. Soon after, she was evicted of her home, her things thrown on the street. She burned them and left the planet, crying. [1] One Year Later event logo. ... Mogo is a fictional character in the DC Comics universe, a superhero and member of the Green Lantern Corps. ...


During the Sinestro Corps War, Sinestro himself returns to Korugar to confront his successor, Soranik Natu. Sinestro defeats her, but spares her life, calculating that this will force her to stay on Korugar to fulfill her responsibilities as "the Savior of Korugar." Sinestro then returns to Qward to join the battle occuring there.
