In brightest day,
In blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight,
Let those who worship evil's might,
Beware my power,
Green lantern's light!


Hal Jordan was corrupted by Parallax for years while serving in the green lantern corps. Slowly Parallax played upon his fears and insecurities in such a subtle way that Jordan was never aware of the invasion. When Jordan's home town was destroyed by Cyborg Superman, he lost all touch with reality. His eroded psyche snapped, giving Parallax his opportunity to bond with Jordan's soul.

Jordan attacked Oa, killing many green lanterns, Sinestro, and most of the guardians as well. He destroyed the central power battery, the storage unit of the hope energy of the universe created by the guardians to empower their green lanterns, and thereby fully released Parallax from this prison in the process. Parallax then infected Jordan physically as well as mentally.

After the tragic defeat of the green lantern corps, Jordan sought to rewrite history so that he could reform the universe into an existence he desired. Parallax and Jordan are eventually defeated by Kyle Rayner, the last of the green lanterns, and Green Arrow.

Jordan reappears infrequently, obviously attempting to gain redemption for his crimes while corrupted by Parallax. He is eventually chosen to be the human host of The Specter, the spirit of vengeance, who is attempting to purge Jordan of the remnants of Parallax's corruption.

Rayner investigated Parallax and discovered the truth, that it is a parasitic entity of fear as old as sentience itself. He recovered Jordan's physical body and returned it to earth. Parallax, still clinging to Jordan's soul and sensing the danger, reasserts its dominance over Jordan's soul and attacks earth. He is joined by Sinestro, who's murder was staged by Parallax to be the final assault on Jordan's soul which sealed his fate as Parallax's host.

The Spirit of Vengeance succeeds in overpowering Parallax, and removes all of its corruption from Jordan's soul, as well as the Spirit's own influence. Jordan is restored to his position as a Green Lantern and does battle with Sinestro, whom he once again banishes to the anti-matter universe of Qward.

While banished, Sinestro assembles an army to assault Oa and gain dominance over the universe. He recruits those that can instill great fear. He grants each a yellow power ring and births his Sinestro Corps of yellow lanterns. With the Anti-Monitor and Parallax as his generals, he begins an invasion of the universe with the first target being the green lantern corps.

The Sinestro Corps has ambushed Oa and Mogo and successfully freed Superboy-prime, and Cyborg Superman from their Sciencells. Kyle Rayner has been captured, taken to Qward, and possessed by Parallax. Now, as heralds of the Anti-Monitor, they threaten the Green Lantern corps and all of the universe.

The Guardians have rewritten the Book of Oa and allowed lethal force in the face of this threat. You must find and stop the Sinestro Corps and prevent the dominance of all life to the power of fear.
