The Green Lantern Corps is an intergalactic police force created by the immortal Guardians of the Universe.


A billion years ago, the Guardians of the Universe harnessed the green energy of will and forged rings from it. They created a home planet at the center of the universe, Oa, and divided the universe in 3600 sectors. Every sector would have one ring wielder, a Green Lantern. These Lanterns, who were recruited by the Ring, had to be without fear. Fear was their greatest enemy: the entity Parallax. Abin Sur imprisoned it on the planet Ryut. Years later, it managed to escape, and threaten the future of the Green Lantern Corps.
