Notable Villains

  • Krona: A villainous former Guardian of the Universe. He has massacred countless lives and created the Anti-Monitor.
  • Manhunters: before of Green Lantern Corps creation the Guardians of the Universe created the Manhunters to bring peace in the universe. However, the Manhunters became obsessed with the act of 'hunting' criminals. Their code, "No Man Escapes The Manhunters", became more important to them than seeing justice done.
  • Mongul I: Along side with Cyborg Superman destroyed Coast City and is an intergalactic tyrant.
  • Weaponers of Qward: Along with Sinestro, the Qwardians are also responsible of the creation of the Sinestro Corps, because they forged the first Yellow Power Ring for the renegade Lantern. They clashed constantly with the Green Lantern Corps, waging war against the Guardians of the Universe.
    • Anti-Green Lantern Corps: A Qwardian rip-off of the Green Lanterns. This army was equipped with Antimatter Power Rings, whose beams were capable of destroying anything (and anyone) made of Positive Matter.[1]
    • General Fabrikant: A mastermind who orchestrated a massive invasion on Oa, and, disguised as a child, attacked Hal Jordan on Earth.[2]
  • Guardians of the Universe: Although they are the creators of the Green Lantern Corps and they are highly respected by them, the Guardians also gained a reputation of being very secretive and distrustful about their Corps. Due to how ineffective their methods seemed, they become disillusioned and create the villainous Third Army and the Alpha Lantern Corps.
  • Volthoom: The original enemy of the Green Lantern Corps and pretty much the reason for the Corps existence. He possesses a phantom ring, which allows him control over the whole emotional spectrum, but also makes him unstable.
