Ninety years ago, the man now known as Evil Star was suffering from a disease. He utilized a device to channel cosmic into his body, curing him and giving him powers. The cure came at a cost as as his lover was killed by his new-found powers. Evil Star drained her life-force into himself.
At some point he used his Star-Band to destroy a planet, murdering 2.5 billion people.
At some point, he was captured by the Green Lantern Corps and imprisoned in a Sciencell. He was among numerous prisoners set free just before Oa was destroyed by Relic. The prisoners were offered a chance to join a Khund/Durlan alliance in an assault against the Corps. Instead they joined forces with the Green Lanterns against a common enemy.
