Synopsis for "Chapter Seven: Sinestro"
The Flash, Lex Luthor, and Superman are arguing about what to do with Sinestro. Barry and Lex believe that he is a dangerous criminal who is not to be trusted, but Superman is willing to extend a hand to him after Sinestro warned the Kryptonian about the Green Lantern Corps. Sinestro affirms his support for Superman, and that his "pets" are right to fear him. The Korugaran also says he and Superman are alike: Sinestro sees much of his own past inside of Superman, and does not want Kal-El to face the same endgame Sinestro did as a Green Lantern.
Thaal Sinestro used to be a Green Lantern of Sector 1417, which included his home planet of Korugar. He faced an incursion from a rogue Manhunter, but was denied any sort of information as to why it attacked him. Upon returning to Korugar, he sought to fix what he saw as a corrupt political climate. Thaal forcibly usurped the ruling party and installed himself as a dictator. He brought his wife, Arin Sur, and daughter, Soranik Natu, to Korugar where he believed they would live peacefully. Unbeknownst to Sinestro, Arin sent their daughter off-world for fear of being sought out by the exiled politicians. Her fears were substantiated when she was found murdered in her own room by Sinestro; one of his advisors told the Green Lantern that they believed the murder to have been caused by the exiled. In a rage of revenge, Sinestro sought out and murdered all of them brutally.
News of Sinestro's mass murder spread quickly. The rest of the Green Lantern Corps, including Hal Jordan, Kilowog, and other veteran Lanterns, were sent to apprehend the dictator. Mad with power, Sinestro fought back with raw might, but was no match for the combined might of many capable ring-wielders. Hal Jordan, Sinestro's student, was the one who removed Sinestro's ring from his finger.
In the present, Sinestro ties his story together: Superman will be experiencing events similar to those that Sinestro experienced. Thaal phases through the laser prison that had been meant to keep anyone contained, but reveals his purpose in doing so was to give Superman his Qwardian Power Ring. He trusts that, when the time comes, his ring will be returned to him and he will be able to fight the Green Lanterns at that time.
