Atrocitus is the founder and leader of the Red Lantern Corps.

Atrocitus was responsible for killing William Hand in which his death unleashed Nekron and the Black Lantern Corps upon the universe. Afterwards, Atrocitus was captured and crucified on Ysmault.[1]

As the war against the Black Lanterns became dire, Atrocitus was approached by Thaal Sinestro who demanded to know the prophecy called the "Flashpoint". Atrocitus had already knew from his vision that the entire universe was changed by the Flash and that the universe will once again be changed to what he believed it should be. After Atrocitus told Sinestro about the Flashpoint, Sinestro killed him.[2]
