Abin Sur was the Green Lantern of Sector 2814, one of the greatest members of the Green Lantern Corps until his untimely tragic death. His starship crash-landed on the planet Earth, killing him and causing his ring to seek out a replacement. Hal Jordan was deemed most worthy to become his successor, making the first human Green Lantern. Born on the planet Ungara, his best friend was Thaal Sinestro who also married his sister Arin Sur and fathered his niece Soranik. Amon Sur, his son, is a notorious villain and member of the Sinestro Corps. He is also responsible for the creation of the Indigo Tribe. Abin Sur was created by John Broome and Gil Kane, first appearing in Showcase #22. (1959)
