Atrocitus is the leader of the Red Lantern Corps, a cosmic group that utilize power rings fueled by anger and hatred.
Before becoming a Red Lantern, Atrocitus' homeworld was ravaged by members of the Sinestro Corps, sparking the anger that would grant him a red ring.
During Brainiac's invasion of Earth, Hal Jordan, who had only recently switched back to the Green Lantern Corps after renouncing his yellow ring, was contacted by Atrocitus, who, despite Jordan's former alliance to the Corps that he swore to destroy, saw the anger inside Earth's Lantern and wanted to recruit him. However, the Green Lantern used his willpower to overcome Atrocitus' offer and sent him retreating from Earth.
Possible Post-Brainiac Epilogue
"My punishment for Brainiac's crimes had unintended consequences. His death disabled his ship. Billions of collected souls perished. I did not know they could be restored. Their deaths unleashed such rage, my Red Lanterns were overwhelmed. They drove me from Ysmault. They would have killed me, if not for Proselyte. The emotional entity offered me compassion, not rage, in the face of my grave error.
I now understand the emotional spectrum requires balance. My Red Lanterns' rage must punish the worst offenders, but it cannot blindly consume those that deserve compassion."
