Quick GL Fact #4: The Villains

I don’t know very much about GL’s villains so I’m just gonna highlight some of my favourites in this post. Hold on to your seats as we come to Green Lantern villain #1!

Sinestro

The Yin to Hal Jordan’s Yang. Sinestro is probably Green Lantern’s number #1 foe. Wielder of the Yellow Light of Fear; this ex-Lantern even has his own Corps named after him. Sinestro is a pretty complex villain and weird as it may sound despite his actions he still somehow believes very much in what the Green Lantern Corps stands for.

Parallax

The entity of Fear was introduced a couple of years ago and was the reason for Hal Jordan’s fall from grace. In the comic books he looks a whole lot more fearsome and a lot more dangerous. Hal Jordan would never have been able to defeat him the way he did in the movies.

The Manhunters

The Manhunters

Originally created by the Guardians, the Manhunters hate their replacements with a vengeance. In the DCU, these guys somehow are led by the Cyborg Superman; Hank Henshaw… I don’t even know how that happened. Heh… that must mean I’d need to look up a Wiki somewhere on the subject.

Atrocitus

The head honcho of the Red Lanterns is one to watch out for. Filled with rage; this fearsome alien had a hand in bringing about the death of Abin Sur (I think) and is the founder of the Red Lantern Corps based on the planet Ysmault.

These four are worth a mention. Like I said I don’t know much about Green Lantern’s other villains as I only just recently started following him especially the earth-bound ones. Heh. But of course an intergalactic cop should have intergalactic foes so nuff’ said.

If you’re really keen to find what other villains that the Corps has; you can find a full list here.
