!! Alexander Nero
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-Nero_8196.jpg]]
->'''Homeworld:''' Earth

Alex Nero was an artist committed to an asylum for multiple mental disorders. He was given a yellow power ring by the Weaponers of Qward in order to eliminate Kyle Rayner, at the time the last Green Lantern.

Despite having a yellow ring, Nero was never a member of the Sinestro Corps (though they did manipulate him prior to the Sinestro Corps War). Following the war, Nero was executed by the Alpha Lanterns.

* AxCrazy
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Was built up to be a big villain back when he was first created, but never really caught on and was ultimately unceremoniously shot through the head in the pages of ''Green Lantern Corps''.
* EvilCounterpart: To Kyle Rayner.
** ShadowArchetype: Both are artists given weapons fueled by creativity.
* MadArtist
* ParentalAbandonment
** Hard to blame them, [[EnfanteTerrible really...]]

!! The Anti-Monitor
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-234399-156436-anti-monitor_super_4852.jpg]]
->'''Homeworld:''' The antimatter universe

The living embodiment of {{antimatter}}, who wishes to destroy all positive-matter universes so his own can reign supreme - and in ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'', he nearly succeeded. He was reborn after the multiverse was restored in ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'', and came to the attention of the Green Lanterns when he became the Guardian of the Sinestro Corps. He was defeated in the war (in part by Superboy-Prime, avenging the destruction of his home universe) and his body was taken to be the power source of the Black Lantern Battery. The White Light resurrected him in ''ComicBook/BlackestNight'', but Nekron simply banished him back to the antimatter universe, where he plotted to claim the White Lantern and consume its infinite energies but was stopped by ComicBook/{{Firestorm}}.
* ArchEnemy: To.....Everyone really.
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: Like Galactus, he's usually huge.
* BigBad: '''The''' biggest, baddest threat in DC comic book history. Well until the next guy showed up.
* DimensionLord
* TheDreaded: Everyone, and I mean ''everyone'' is either dead afraid of him or at least recognizes his threat.
* DuelToTheDeath: Had this with The Spectre. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted though since they were interrupted.]]
* EldritchAbomination: A subjectively malevolent, mostly energy being locked inside of a huge suit of armor.
* EvilOverlord: of the Qwardians, and by extension the entire Anti-matter universe.
* EvilTwin: of the Monitor.
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: He was only created to justify the retcon that is the Crisis.
* HeroKiller: Doesn't matter who you are, Monty will drop you if he can.
* TheJuggernaut: Remarkably hard to put down.
* LogicalWeakness: He's made of Anti-matter, therefore being exposed to Positive Matter makes him a tad weak at the knees. So if you can rip open his suit, you have a small, ''small'' chance.
* LivingBattery: Nekron turned him into the Black Lantern battery in ComicBook/BlackestNight.
* MultiversalConqueror: Well, his motives seem to vary, but he's usually a...
* OmnicidalManiac: He wants to destroy everything that isn't part of the Anti-Matter Universe.
* PlanetEater: Although, he's only really expressed interest in eating Earth as far as individual planets go. Most likely due to it's relevance as a Multiversal keystone.
* PoweredArmor: Keeps his body together, Without it, he's either a marshmallow or a living beam of energy.
* PutOnABus: Vanished after ComicBook/TheNew52 started, though he was mentioned in flashbacks and in ComicBook/WrathOfTheFirstLantern.
** TheBusCameBack: [[spoiler:Finally reappeared at the end of ComicBook/ForeverEvil.]]
* RasputinianDeath: Read his page example.
* SpacetimeEater: He almost devoured the entire multiverse, and due to his actions, caused what little remained to collapse into one small New Earth.
* WaveMotionGun: His blast are devastating
* TheWorfEffect: He was pretty easily deposed of by Superboy Prime, though it should be noted that immediately before this he'd been hit with an explosion stated to be powerful enough to obliterate ''an entire galaxy'', so he was hardly at full power. Edit: He wasn't even at full power before that. The explosion was caused by dropping Warworld on him. The reason being, he had started up his anti-matter wave which would have obliterated Earth (and all other earths associated with it since it's the keystone for the multiverse) and re-powered him. His corpse was used by Alexander Luthor to try and restart the multiverse. When that fell through and created the first 52, the Anti-Monitor and the Monitor(s) were brought back since they are intrinsically linked to the multiverse. And even at a fraction of his power, he was soloing the Guardians of the Universe. The entire reason for starting up the AM wave was to finish the battle decisively. The Anti-Monitor gains power by destruction of matter using the AM wave. That's how he got so powerful during COIE.

!!Bolphunga the Unrelenting

* TheBrute
* DependingOnTheWriter: Either a genuine fighter, when the Sinestros broke out of their prison cells and he fought with the Green Lanterns, or a joke character.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Well, not that sympathetic.

!! The Controllers
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/300px-Controllers_897.jpg]]
->'''Homeworld:''' Unnamed binary star system

An offshoot of the Guardians of the Universe, the Controllers didn't want to merely fight evil, but [[KnightTemplar totally annihilate it]]. Generally builders of doomsday weapons such as the Sun-Eaters, they also formed a rival police corps called the Darkstars. After that, they pursued other avenues in their quest for universal order, creating Effigy and attempting to steal the Orange Light from Larfleeze, but each time they failed. In the future, the Controllers later retreat to an alternate dimension and become frequent opponents of the ComicBook/{{Legion Of Super-Heroes}}.

* [[PureEnergy Energy Blasts]]: The Controllers can produce energy blasts similar to those of the Guardians.
* KnightTemplar
* WellIntentionedExtremist

!!Cyborg-Superman
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-Bigcomfychair_5435.jpg]]
->'''AKA:''' Hank Henshaw
->'''Homeworld:''' Biot (originally Earth)

The villain who, with Mongul I, destroyed Hal Jordan's home of Coast City, earning him the Green Lantern's eternal enmity. Years later, Cyborg-Superman resurfaced as the grandmaster of the mechanical horrors, the Manhunters, refitting them with internal power batteries designed to leech away a Green Lantern's power. After his defeat, the cyborg was locked away on Oa, but was freed by Sinestro's forces, who appointed him their quartermaster and captain of the new [=WarWorld=].

All Cyborg-Superman wanted, however, was death, which Sinestro promised he would get after Earth was conquered--but this was not to be. Even though his body was almost totally destroyed in the Sinestro Corps War, the Manhunters found his corpse and rebuilt him. He has recently resurfaced and taken over the Alpha Lanterns through their Manhunter technology. While his plan with the Alphas failed, he might have gotten the death he desired.

See the [[Characters/{{Superman}} Superman Character Sheet]] for more on Cyborg-Superman.

!!Doctor Polaris
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-POLARIS_4521.JPG]]
->'''AKA:''' Neal Emerson
->'''Homeworld:''' Earth

Neal Emerson was a man tortured by schizophrenia, his mind shattered by abuse from his father. Originally a research scientist with an interest in magnetism, Emerson learned to harness power over metal through rigorous meditation. Unfotunately, when his powers manifested, Emerson's split personality took over, and Doctor Polaris was born. He battled Hal Jordan for years before being killed by the Human Bomb in ''InfiniteCrisis''.

Later on, a businessman and Intergang associate named John Nichol, a follower of Neal Emerson's exploits, became the second Doctor Polaris after the death of Neal Emerson. He battles Blue Beetle, holding a definitive advantage, until he is shot in the shoulder by his own daughter. In Blackest Night #4, Nichol is reported to have been killed by the Black Lantern version of Emerson during a conversation between the Calculator and Lex Luthor.

* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: To an absurd degree.

!!Effigy
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-Effigy_1_3307.jpg]]
->'''AKA:''' Martin Van Wyck
->'''Homeworld:''' Earth

Just like Kyle Rayner, Seattle slacker Martin Van Wyck was in the right place at the right time--but instead of getting a power ring from the last Guardian, he was given pyrokinetic powers by their enemies, the Controllers. And unlike Kyle, he didn't use his power to help people--he used it to lash out at a world he felt had walked all over him his entire life. The Controllers, whose Darkstar force had recently become defunct, wanted to create a force more like the Green Lantern Corps, but Effigy was found lacking, so they abandoned him. More than just producing flame, Effigy could shape fire into constructs just like a Green Lantern ring. He was eventually killed by TheSpectre for participating in the murder of MartianManhunter.

* HellishPupils: As a side-effect of his powers, Effigy's eyes seem to have a fire burning behind them.
* {{Jerkass}}
* MeaningfulName
* PlayingWithFire
* ShadowArchetype: To Kyle Rayner.
* TouchedByVorlons

!!Evil Star
[[quoteright:235:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/95943-33505-evil-star_super_5367.jpg]]
->'''Homeworld:''' Aoran

A scientist from the planet Aoran, Evil Star created a device called the "starband" that drew down the power of the stars, aging his fellow Aurians to death but making him immortal. Drunk on power, Evil Star left his planet seeking new worlds to conquer, making himself an enemy of the Green Lantern Corps, especially Hal Jordan. His starband provides him the powers of flight, energy blasts, and hard light constructs, and also powers his Starlings, a squad of miniature Evil Stars with super-strength.

The Guardians later send Evil Star to the Erral Rehab Facility, where they use a brain wave nullifier in an attempt to cure him. This rehabilitation is only partially successful, as the nullifier stimulates his subconscious mind, recreating the Starlings, who bring him the Star Brand. Evil Star flees to Earth in a confused state, believing the Starlings are persecuting him. He fights with Ferrin Colos, one of the Darkstars, who floods Evil Star's mind with reminders of the lives he has taken, starting with his homeworld. Evil Star's mind shuts down, and he is returned to the Guardians for re-education.

Evil Star is freed by Neron, with enhanced Starlings, but returned to captivity by the Darkstars and Guy Gardner.

* CardCarryingVillain: Named himself "''Evil'' Star".
* DrunkOnTheDarkSide
* GalacticConqueror
* ImmortalityImmorality: If he accepted his mortality, there wouldn't be an Evil Star.
* LastOfHisKind: Because he killed all the others.
* MadScientist
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname
* PintSizedPowerhouse: All of the Starlings.
* ThePowerOfTheSun: He draws strength from absorbing star light. [[HoistByHisOwnPetard This worked against him]] when he tried to take on {{Superman}}. Supes just got powered up by his attacks, because he also runs on star light/sunlight.

!!The First Lantern
[[quoteright:270:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_thefirstlantern_7848.jpg]]
->'''AKA:''' Volthoom
->'''Homeworld:''' [[spoiler:Unknown]]

* AscendedExtra: Started out in the SilverAge as the name of a corrupt Buddhist monk mentioned in connection with the origin of the [[MirrorUniverse Earth-3]] Lantern counterpart Power Ring and then became the name of the annoying consciousness pestering the villain rom within his ring before being reinvented as a major villain in the [[DCNew52 New 52]].
* BaldOfEvil: As of his StartOfDarkness.
* BigBad: Of the "Wrath of the First Lantern" arc.
* DespairGambit: Pulls quite a few of these, since his powers grow stronger with despair.
* EvilerThanThou: Pulls this on the Third Army.
* GodzillaThreshold: He's so dangerous that [[spoiler:Hal and B'dg are forced to have Hal perform a HeroicSacrifice to [[EnemyMine ask aid of]] [[TheGrimReaper Nekron]] by turning Hal into [[Characters/GreenLanternBlackAndWhiteCorps a Black Lantern]] to allow Nekron to [[EldritchAbomination exist in the mortal realm]] and help them to retain the existence of this version of reality. Considering [[BlackestNight what happened last time Nekron came to the mortal plane]], this is about as serious as it gets]].
* GreenLanternRing: Averted, but in fact his power is the ''reason'' for the Power Rings: a way to use MagicFromTechnology to control the same power of the Emotional Electromagnetic Spectrum he can naturally.
* HumanoidAbomination: He looks human, but his form and his power show he decidedly isn't.
** [[spoiler:WasOnceAMan: However, he used to be... before he got swept up in the ''actual'' First Lantern, the Great Heart, and came out able to wield the First Ring, which channels the emotions of the Guardians.]]
* NamesTheSame: Shares a name with another Volthoom, who was either (In the pre-Crisis Earth Three) a monk who gave the villainous Power Ring his eponymous weapon, or (In the post-Crisis Anti-matter Earth) a benevolent mystical being who resided within the villain's ring. Of course, he may possibly be that person's mainstream counterpart...
* RealityWarper: To an insane degree, and capable of remaking reality itself entirely if he achieves full power.
* SealedEvilInACan: Was sealed in the Chamber of Shadows, a TailorMadePrison, until the non-Hidden Ones Guardians took him away [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill to make their Third Army from their own flesh]].
* TimeTravel: Capable of it.

!!Goldface
->'''AKA:''' Keith Kenyon
->'''Homeworld:''' Earth

Keith Kenyon was a chemist in Coast City who discovered a sunken chest full of gold that had been irradiated by chemical waste. Using the irradiated gold, he created a serum that granted him super-strength and invulnerability for a limited time and became the super-criminal Goldface; eventually, the serum permanently turned his body into solid gold. After fighting Hal Jordan for years, moving to Central City and fighting TheFlash, and killing Tomar-Re in ''CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'', he was imprisoned. After time served, turned over a new leaf and became Keystone City's union commissioner.

* HeelFaceTurn: After menacing GreenLantern for years, Goldface later resurfaced as a recurring character to TheFlash, having given up supervillainy to become an honest union leader.
** HeroicNeutral: He's now the people's man, he helps the citizens, but doesn't fight superpowered beings anymore. In the Crossfire arc he helps the flash fight the rouges who have fallen under his Ex-wife Blacksmith's control.
* NameFaceName
* NighInvulnerability
* PsychoExGirlfriend: Blacksmith, the leader of the New Rogues.
* RoguesGalleryTransplant: He later became a [[TheFlash Flash]] villain.
* SuperStrength

!!Grayven
[[quoteright:74:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/74px-Grayven_3240.jpg]]
->'''Homeworld:''' Apokolips

The bastard offspring of {{Darkseid}}, an outcast among the NewGods, Grayven was a would-be GalacticConqueror who crossed swords with Kyle Rayner on a number of occasions. After several failed attempts at building an empire, Grayven joined forces with the Sinestro Corps against Rayner, then the host of the Ion Entity. Shortly after, however, Grayven fell victim to the war in the Fourth World and died in the fall of the New Gods.

* EyeBeams: Grayven possesses a watered-down version of Darkseid's Omega Beams.
* GalacticConqueror
* TheUnfavorite: When ''Kalibak'' is a better son than you, you've got issues.

!!Hector Hammond
[[quoteright:123:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/123px-Hector_Hammond-2_3307.jpg]]
->'''Homeworld:''' Earth

An arrogant scientist who worked as a consultant for Ferris Aircraft. While studying Abin Sur's ship, his carelessness led to an accident that freakishly enlarged his head and gave him psychic powers. As the years went by, Hammond's brain has swollen to over two meters in width and the rest of his body is now useless. His deepest desire is to steal Hal Jordan's thoughts so he can live vicariously through them.

* DisabilitySuperpower
* IJustWantToBeYou: Feels this way towards Hal.
* MightAsWellNotBeInPrisonAtAll: His body is imprisoned (he's serving multiple life sentences) and is supposedly under the effects of a psionic inhibitor... but Hammond's mind is so powerful that he can still telepathically control people hundreds or even thousands of miles away from the prison without ever leaving his cell.
* MindControl
* MyBrainIsBig: One of the more extreme examples.
* RoguesGalleryTransplant: His first appearance in the {{New 52}} is as a Franchise/{{Superman}} villain.
* StalkerWithACrush: He's obsessed with Hal Jordan, calling himself [[LoonyFan Hal's biggest fan]]. He's ''also'' obsessed with Carol Ferris.
* {{Telepathy}}
* TouchedByVorlons

!!Krona
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-Krona_The_Brightest_Day-3_6700.jpg]]
->'''Homeworld:''' Maltus

The Maltusian MadScientist that wanted to study creation (despite legends saying that this would be a ''bad idea'') and ultimately prompted the race to become the Guardians. He was reduced to an EnergyBeing for his crimes, but occasionally returns to either take vengeance on the Guardians or pursue his obsession with creation. One of the greatest threats to the entire universe--[[{{JLA-Avengers}} and others]]. As his original experiment created TheMultiverse and Anti-Matter Universe, he is indirectly responsible for the CrisisOnInfiniteEarths and all the [[InfiniteCrisis disasters]] [[ComicBook/FiftyTwo that]] [[FinalCrisis followed]] as a result of it.

Recent developments in ''BrightestDay'' have revealed that [[spoiler:he was once the keeper of the emotional entities, and can therefore bring them under his control. It's also explained that he induced the glitch in the Manhunters in order to highlight their flaws as emotionless beings. He used the entities to stage a takeover of the Green Lantern Corps and the Guardians, which was foiled by the Earth Lanterns. Krona was then killed by Hal Jordan, who overcame his ring's no-killing-Guardians restriction in the process.]]

* AGodAmI: He became a god about twice in his lifetime. It went to his head.
* ArchEnemy: To the Guardians of Oa.
* AwesomeEgo: Not without justification, but he still refuses to listen to anyone who tells him he's wrong.
* {{Badass}}: His limitless life is ''made'' of this trope. First, by trying to find out how the universe was made, he ended up creating a presumably infinite amount. Next after being cast out from our dimension, he got Nekron, the king of the dead, to give him extra powers and a ticket out of death because The Afterlife couldn't have an Immortal walk around without ripping itself apart.Third, he found a way to destroy entire Universes that couldn't provide him with the answers he wanted. Next, Krona [[CurbStompBattle beat]] [[PlanetEater Galactus]] to death, that's right, he killed a cosmic entity with his bare hands. And these are only the feats showed on-panel.
* TheBeastmaster: He was the guardian of the Emotional Entities, and still knows how to control them. He even manages to drag Parallax halfway across the universe and imprison it effortlessly.
* BiggerBad: Arguably the Biggest Bad in the entire DC universe. His experiment to see the creation of the universe backfired spectacularly, creating numerous parallel universes as well as the Anti-Matter universe; originally, this was said to have been the origin of evil itself, but if that probably counts as CanonDisContinuity it still makes him responsible for the Anti-Monitor, the Weaponers of Qward (and by extension, Sinestro) and a host of other horrors. Its recently been revealed that he's also the boss of [[spoiler: Parallax, and the other emotional entities]] and was responsible for [[spoiler: the Manhunters going rogue]]. More accidentally, he was once sent to Nekron's realm. The impossibility of an immortal in the realm of the dead gave Nekron his first glimpse into the physical universe and started his streak of omnicidal mania (Krona was all too happy to help him at that point anyway). He's actually the reason the Guardians of the Universe even exist, as the Oans became this to atone for Krona's sins.
** BigBad: Became this directly during the War of the Green Lanterns, where Krona poisoned the GL corps by placing Parrallax's fear energy in the main battery. Hal eventually beat him though.
* [[spoiler:DroppedABridgeOnHim: After being revealed to be OnlyMostlyDead in the pages of Red Lantern, he is unceremoniously killed off-screen by Abysmus.]]
* EnergyBeing: Became this several times, Though he can still assume his original humanoid form.
** EldritchAbomination: He became a Formless energy caught between space and time during his first banishment.
* EtTuBrute: Used to be Ganthet's friend before he was imprisoned.
* FallenHero: He was the smartest mind on Maltus, and invented pretty much everything the Green Lantern Corp uses before he went mad and turned against his former allies.
* ForScience: The original reason why he wanted to view the creation of the universe, despite the warnings of Maltusian legend that turned out to be true all along.
* MadScientist
* MeasuringTheMarigolds: At least in the yearlong ''Trinity'' series.
* OmnicidalNeutral: He cares nothing for sides.
** OmnicidalManiac: But if he can't get what he wants from a universe, he thinks nothing of destroying it.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: After ComicBook/BrightestDay, he's suddenly the same size as a regular Guardian, but still as dangerous as ever.
* SealedEvilInACan: He was sealed in a "Cosmic Egg" by the JLA and [[Comicbook/TheAvengers some otherworldly heroes]] for a while.
* TheSeer: Foresaw the events of ComicBook/BlackestNight and ComicBook/BrightestDay.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Has hints of this in Brightest Day. At the very least, [[KnightTemplar he thinks he's one.]]

->'''Homeworld:''' Biot (formerly Oa, later Orinda)

Robotic precursors of the Green Lantern Corps. They wielded the same Green power source until the Guardians realized that they were too cold and inflexible to properly discern justice within the context of real cultures and real life situations. After being stripped of their status, the Manhunters formed their own group and have variously attempted to act upon their original purpose or exact revenge upon their creators. During the Sinestro Corps War, they joined forces with Cyborg-Superman, who became their Grandmaster and created a new breed of Manhunter that siphons power away from Green Lantern rings and recharges Sinestro rings.

* AIIsACrapshoot: Though in ''BrightestDay'', [[spoiler:it's revealed that their revolt was deliberately engineered by Krona.]]
* BigBad: Collectively, of the ''Comicbook/{{Millennium}}'' crossover.

!!Mongul II
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-Monguladmh4_2706.jpg]]
->'''Homeworld:''' Debstam IV

The son of Mongul I, despotic ruler of [=WarWorld=] and destroyer of Coast City. Like his father, Mongul II is a cruel and arrogant monster who lives for conquest. After the Sinestro Corps War, a yellow power ring found its way to Mongul, who used it to launch a hostile takeover of the Sinestro Corps; he nearly succeeded until Sinestro himself defeated him in single combat, trapping him within the yellow central power battery on Korugar. (See the [[Characters/{{Superman}} Superman Character Sheet]] for his father, Mongul I.)
----
* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Its pretty damn clear the Sinestro Corps only followed him because he'd kill them otherwise. And many that he conquer prefer to die instead of live under him.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: With Arkillo. Mongul beat him within an inch of his life and tore his tongue out to prove he was a worthy leader.
* BadBoss: Kills any underling who so much as irritates him.
* BaldOfEvil
* BullyingADragon: Tried this with Mother Mercy and paid for it bigtime.
* CainAndAbel: With his vile sister, Mongal.
* DependingOnTheWriter: While he's always evil the great divide is that one writer paints him as a sociopathic, hulk-like monster that just loves to kill and talk a big game while doing so while the other paints a picture of a strategist with a ''very'' loose code of honor, that's not above helping his enemies when it benefits him too.
* DetachmentCombat: His first run-in with the Green Lanterns resulted in him losing an arm. Thanks to his Sinestro ring he was still able to control it until he eventually got it reattached.
* DoomedHometown: His homeworld is a barren wasteland thanks to his dad.
* TheDreaded: Why the Yellow Ring came looking for him.
* EvilerThanThou: With Mongal, Arkillo, and Sinestro. That last one ends badly for him.
* ForTheEvulz: This is basically what his motivations boil down to. He has no grand scheme or overarching plan, he's just out to be as much of a dick as possible.
* FlyingBrick: Once he got a power ring(s).
* FreudianExcuse: Just try growing up with Mongul as a father, being told that daddy is the hero and the [[Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica dorks in bright colors]] are the evil villains keeping him from bringing the beauty of monstrous tyranny to the Universe. This doesn't justify dog shit of course, but it's at least an explanation.
* GalacticConqueror
* GreenLanternRing: Two fistfuls of Yellow Power Rings, taken from Sinestro Corps members who refused to join up with him.
* {{Jerkass}}: Not only does he have a LackOfEmpathy, but he's an asshole who thinks he's better than everyone else and doesn't bother even with pleasantries.
* {{Juggernaut}}
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Mongul II's decimation of xenophobic Daxam may be horrific, but it's also very satisfying to watch. As Sodam Yat notes, "congratulations mom and dad. You finally got the alien you deserve."
* LackOfEmpathy
* LargeAndInCharge
* LaserGuidedKarma: Given to him by AntiVillain Sinestro
* LotusEaterMachine: His father's Black Mercy plants, but only until his first conflict with the Green Lanterns. The Lanterns discovered the plants were spawned by a benevolent "Mother Mercy" and helped her rebel against Mongul.
* NighInvulnerability: It takes hits from Green Lantern Rings or someone as strong as Superman to actually hurt Mongul II.
* OverlordJr: Is less about holding entire worlds at his mercy like his dad and more about just being the absolutely worst thing he can be, which generally includes forcing people to serve him.
* RoguesGalleryTransplant: First appeared in {{Superman}}'s comics.
* SmugSnake
* TheStarscream: Borderline example, since Mongul II started trying to take over the Sinestro Corps before he actually met Sinestro.
* StupidEvil: He's hardly dumb, but he focuses ''way'' too much on trying to be as much of a dick as possible and/or forcing others to serve him without even pausing to consider the practicality of that approach or how it's going to bite him in the ass later on. ''Especially'' [[BullyingADragon the]] [[HoistByHisOwnPetard latter]].
* SuperStrength: To scary levels. Mongul II and his father are among the most physically powerful beings in DC.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: For Mongul I, initially. He's since evolved into a rather different character.
* TookALevelInBadass: Never the threat that his father was, Mongul II's acquisition of a yellow power ring allowed him to take on multiple Green Lantern Corpsmen with little difficulty, achieving a status in the GL book similar to that of his dad in the Superman comics.
* WhatMightHaveBeen: See the character pic? At one point, he was going to try to collect all the rings, but that storyline got rewritten into a civil war with the Sinestro Corps.
* WhatEverHappenedToTheMouse: After being thoroughly swatted by Sinestro, he vanished from continuity.
* WellDoneSonGuy: As a child, he wanted nothing more than for his father to trust him and like him enough to let him tag along on his journeys to enslave the Galaxy.

!!The Psions
->'''Homeworld:''' Vega system

An early experiment of the Guardians' ancestors on Maltus, the Psions are a race of reptilian humanoids with a penchant for cruel scientific experimentation. They were abandoned by the Maltusians when they migrated to Oa, and later made violent contact with their NeglectfulPrecursors. When the Psions were defeated, the Guardians allowed them to settle in the Vega system (which was off-limits to them due to their deal with Agent Orange) so as to afford them peace. The Psions have since become a powerful galactic force thanks to their relative immunity to the Green Lanterns' jurisdiction.

!!Relic
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_relic_4295.jpg]]
->'''Homeworld:''' Unknown

A mysterious gigantic being from the previous universe. Relic was trapped inside the Anomaly, a cyst-like region of space containing the remains of Relic's universe. An altercation between Kyle Rayner and the Anomaly's overzealous guardian Exeter released Relic. He seems to have some sort of grudge against the Spectrum and seeks to destroy it.

* [[CallARabbitASmeerp Call a Lantern a Lightsmith]]: In his old universe, light users of the emotional spectrum were called Lightsmiths. He uses the same name for the Lanterns.
* LastOfHisKind: True to his name, he's the remaining being from a previous universe.
* OurGiantsAreBigger: He appears to be twenty times bigger than a normal human. A person could fit in the palm of his hand.

[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-249202-99418-superman-prime_super_7558.jpg]]
->'''AKA:''' Kal-El / Clark Kent
->'''Homeworld:''' Earth-Prime

Once a young comic book fan in a world without superheroes, this Clark found that he was his universe's counterpart to {{Superman}}, with all his powers. He helped the united heroes in ''CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'', but could not save his own Earth from the Anti-Monitor. With no home left to, he retreated into a paradise dimension... where he watched his favorite heroes descend into TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks. The years of isolation eventually got to him, convincing him that the new universe did not deserve to exist, leading to a RoaringRampageOfRevenge in ''InfiniteCrisis''. The Guardians imprisoned him after his defeat.

Over a year later, the Sinestro Corps staged a breakout on Oa and recruited Superboy-Prime. However, Prime only did so to get close to the Anti-Monitor to avenge Earth-Prime's destruction. After a protracted battle against Sodam Yat, Prime betrayed the Sinestro Corps and killed the Anti-Monitor, hurling him into space before the panicked Guardians hurriedly banished him from this universe.
