Season One (2010; Episodes 1-26)

Paul wakes up in orbit around Earth 16, wearing an orange power ring but having no idea where it came from or how he arrived. Furthermore, although he retains his general knowledge of DC Comics, he has completely forgotten universe 16. However, adapting to his new environment, he joins the Young Justice Team for a year as a condition of being given Alan Scott's personal lantern to keep the ring charged. His presence has a variety of large and small impacts on the team's missions, including the capture or death of several villains who escaped in canon (Cheshire, Sportsmaster, Ocean Master, Ra's al-Ghul) and Wonder Woman coming to mentor and later adopt Superboy.


The Renegade timeline appears as just a few snippets scattered throughout the episodes; however, by the time of Reordered, it has begun to substantially diverge, as the Renegade begins impersonating Grayven, the Apokoliptian New God of Conquest, with the help of a Father Box seized from the Apokoliptian scientist DeSaad.

Season Two (2011; Episodes 27-52)

This is the beginning of the canon Time Skip, so the episodes here are all new. Paul continues to work with the Team for the remainder of his year, but also works closely with Zatanna and John Constantine in a bid to defeat Nabu and free Mister Zatara from his influence. Larfleeze becomes aware of his existence, but Paul is able to fake his own death with the help of the local Green Lanterns.

There are three full episodes that occur primarily from the Renegade point of view, including a trip to Earth 50, where he obtains a yellow power ring, and adopts a daughter whom he rescued from Anti-Life exposure. He then ends his year of service early, by returning Alan Scott's lantern, and leaves the Team in order to infiltrate the Light. Though he is initially hopeful that they can serve humanity, he eventually gives up on them due to their supervillain attitudes, and kills all except Lex Luthor, who is left under heavy government scrutiny.

Season Three (2011; Episodes 53-78)

Having fulfilled his year of service and freed Mr Zatara, Paul heads out into space, starting with the Vega Systems, where he captures Larfleeze, recovers the Orange Central Power Battery, and works with the Controllers to establish an Orange Lantern Corps with himself as second in command. Once the Corps is established, Vril Dox II (the commander) sends Paul back to Earth, where he reconnects with his friends and gathers resources to fight the increasing power of Hell's demons.

The Renegade is visited by Darkseid and his soul is heavily damaged, causing him to reflect on his choices and soften some of them. However, after mostly recovering, he still goes to Vega, killing Larfleeze, the Citadel Empire, the Psions, the gordanians, and various pirate groups. Returning to Earth, he re-establishes the Light with a more sane and constructive roster, including Cranius, Queen Clea, Teth Adom, Circe, The Shade, and a highly restricted Lex Luthor.
