The Entity is the living embodiment of the White Light of Creation that gave birth to all living things in the universe. It is one of the two most fundamental aspects of the cosmos, Life, along with its direct counterpart Nekron, Death.

It originated on Earth where the Guardians of the Universe decided to keep it hidden, most likely to protect it from being discovered. However, during the Blackest Night event, it was released by Nekron, who began to viciously assault it in hopes of destroying all life as the Entity is connected to all living things. Hal Jordan and Sinestro realized that, like Parallax and Ion, the Entity needed a host to pilot it. Hal Jordan began to fly towards it in hopes of being its host only to be stopped by Sinestro, who told him he had his chance with Parallax. Sinestro then joined with the Entity as a voice proclaimed "Thaal Sinestro of Korugar, destiny awaits." Sinestro emerged as the first member of the White Lantern Corps.[1]

Sinestro destroyed legions of Black Lanterns with the Entity's power. While being bonded with the Entity, Sinestro was able to see its memories and witness the creation of life and the Emotional Spectrum. Nekron managed to kill Sinestro while he witnessed the Entity's memories, however the Entity's power revived Sinestro. Together Sinestro and the Entity were able to gain the advantage over Nekron, even managing to destroy Nekron's body. Nekron, being death itself, couldn't be killed in the same manner as a living creature, and he simply switched bodies. The Entity was taken out of Sinestro and was left vulnerable. Hal Jordan bonded with the Entity and together they restored the living heroes transformed into Black Lanterns from Nekron's influence. Hal transformed them into White Lanterns and dubbed them the White Lantern Corps, they defeated Nekron by resurrecting Black Hand, cutting Nekron's link to the living plane, allowing the heroes to finally destroy Nekron. The Entity disappeared after the battle, but a White Lantern Power Battery was found on Earth.[2]
