Back to the Green Lantern character sheet.
Homeworld: EarthAlex 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.
Homeworld: The antimatter universeThe living embodiment of antimatter, who wishes to destroy all positive-matter universes so his own can reign supreme - and in Crisis on Infinite Earths, he nearly succeeded. He was reborn after the multiverse was restored in Infinite Crisis, 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 Blackest Night, 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 Firestorm.
Bolphunga the Unrelenting
Homeworld: Unnamed binary star systemAn offshoot of the Guardians of the Universe, the Controllers didn't want to merely fight evil, but 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 Legion of Super-Heroes.
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 Superman Character Sheet for more on Cyborg-Superman.
AKA: Neal Emerson
Homeworld: EarthNeal 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 Infinite Crisis.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.
AKA: Martin Van Wyck
Homeworld: EarthJust 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 The Spectre for participating in the murder of Martian Manhunter.
Homeworld: AoranA 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.
The First Lantern
AKA: Keith Kenyon
Homeworld: EarthKeith 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 The Flash, and killing Tomar-Re in Crisis on Infinite Earths, he was imprisoned. After time served, turned over a new leaf and became Keystone City's union commissioner.
Homeworld: ApokolipsThe bastard offspring of Darkseid, an outcast among the New Gods, Grayven was a would-be Galactic Conqueror 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.
Homeworld: EarthAn 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.
Homeworld: MaltusThe Maltusian Mad Scientist 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 Energy Being 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—and others. As his original experiment created The Multiverse and Anti-Matter Universe, he is indirectly responsible for the Crisis on Infinite Earths and all the disasters that followed as a result of it.Recent developments in Brightest Day have revealed that 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.
Homeworld: Tchk-TchkHe is a foe of Abin Sur.
AKA: Paul Booker
AKA: Clifford Zmeck
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.
Homeworld: Debstam IVThe 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 Superman Character Sheet for his father, Mongul I.)
Homeworld: Vega systemAn 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 Neglectful Precursors. 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.
Homeworld: UnknownA 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.
AKA: Bito Wladon
The Spider Guild
Homeworld: Vega system
AKA: Kal-El / Clark Kent
Homeworld: Earth-PrimeOnce 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 Crisis on Infinite Earths, 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 The Dark Age of Comic Books. The years of isolation eventually got to him, convincing him that the new universe did not deserve to exist, leading to a Roaring Rampage of Revenge in Infinite Crisis. 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.See the Superman character sheet for more on this character.
The Tattooed Man
AKA: Abel Tarrant
Homeworld: EarthAbel Tarrant was a sailor based in Coast City who turned to burglary. During one of his heists, he was exposed to some mysterious chemicals which left him with the mental ability to create actual objects from the chemicals. When he got back from the robbery, he tattooed himself using the chemicals so he would always have the chemicals near him. Some of the shapes he was able to conjure from his tattoos were an axe, shield, cannon, and dragon.
The Tattooed Man #2
AKA: Mark Richards
Homeworld: EarthMark Richards was a former U.S. Marine who went missing after a helicopter crash and presumed dead until he showed up in Gotham City as a hit man. He claimed that the tattoos covering his body were the sins of men he had killed, and that by the art of "sin-grafting", which he had learned from the nation of Modora, in which he takes the sins of others and puts them on himself, he claimed to be redeeming the men and women he killed. All his victims had tattoos of their sins. He was eventually stopped by Green Lantern and Batman. In Brightest Day event, Mark appears as a member of Deathstroke's new team of Titans He is convinced to join by Deathstroke who offers to help him track down Slipknot, the person responsible for murdering his son.After a breakout at Arkham Asylum, Richards was about to leave his team until Deathstroke reveals that he has captured Slipknot for him.[ Deathstroke allows the two to fight to the death, with Richards winning after he beheads Slipknot.

Vixen rescinds her offer of Justice League membership and attacks Richards. After a brutal fight, Vixen willingly surrenders and Richards agrees to leave her and take care of his neighborhood in his own way. Richards later rejoins Deathstroke's Titans. Upon returning to the labyrinth, Deathstroke reveals to them that the items the Titans collected were used to form a healing machine called the "Methuselah Device", intended to restore his dying son, Jericho. After healing Jericho, Deathstroke declares that the machine can also resurrect the dead, including Richards' son. Richards initially accepts but after Cinder declares the Methuselah Device a curse, he joins her and Arsenal in fighting the other Titans to destroy the it.

The Weaponers of Qward
Homeworld: QwardThe eternal enemies of the Green Lantern Corps. The Weaponers are a race of aliens who inhabit Qward, a planet in the Anti-Matter Universe that occupies the same space that Oa does in the positive universe. They are known for their ingenious skill at creating devastating weapons, such as the lightning-like Qwa-bolts, the Void Hound starship, the black rings of their short-lived Anti-Green Lantern Corps, and even the yellow rings of the Sinestro Corps.The Qwardians have suffered under numerous conquerors, including the Anti-Monitor, the Crime Syndicate of Antimatter-Earth, and the Sinestro Corps. Their own leader holds the title of Highlord. The greatest Weaponers include Highlord Roval, the Weaponer (who created Sinestro's ring), and the caste of warriors called the Thunderers.
A warlord from the unmapped reaches of space beyond Sector 3600, Zardor desires conquest and has allied with Krona to achieve his ends. By abducting psychics to boost his own mental powers, he can clairvoyantly view events in distant sectors, and has used his psychic powers to mentally dominate numerous Green Lanterns. The first Earth Green Lantern to fight him was Guy Gardner.
