Abin Sur was a member of the Green Lantern Corps and assigned to sector 2814.

Not much is known of Abin Sur's life before he became a Green Lantern, but it is known that his ring once belonged to the First Lantern Avra.

One of his last missions before his death was a battle on his homeworld at his home against Atrocitus, who escaped from Ysmalt. During the battle Abin's ring was running on low power and was saved by Sinestro. While talking to Sinestro Atrocitus attempts to break Abin's power battery and throws it into the centre of the city where the explosion had the potential to destroy the entire planet. Abin flew towards the battery and once collected headed at high speed towards space with Sinestro in pursuit.

While heading towards space Abin recited the Green Lantern Oath while charging his ring followed by a massive explosion which Sinestro believes has killed Abin. However he survived the explosion and with a fully charged ring headed at high speed to the planets surface. After locating Atrocitus he constructed a large power battery to crush both him and his ship.

When returning Atrocitus to Ysmalt he was warned by him of a future where Sinestro had formed a corps of his own and ruled with fear as well defeating the Guardians or the Universe and every Green Lantern. Abin merely states that he is attempting to corrupt his vision of Sinestro by telling a tale of road a Green Lantern's willpower won't allow him to go. He then seals Atrocitus in his cell.

At an unknown point in the future Abin Sur died and his ring passed to his successor Hal Jordan.
