Sinestro was the founder and leader of the Sinestro Corps.
Sinestro first appeared to Kyle Rayner outside Earth's orbit, alongside several members of his corps. Sinestro informed Kyle that Earth has changed in the year that he had been gone, and that he looked to Earth for alliances he might find valuable. Kyle mocked Sinestro's facial hair to dissuade his fear, but the Korugarian found it deep within Rayner and ripped his ring finger off before Kyle could broadcast to the Guardians for help. Kyle succumbed to asphyxiation and died when his limbs were pulled apart by the Sinestro Corps members.
Thaal later traveled to the Justice League Watchtower to confront Superman. However, the Korugarian's intentions were revealed to be peaceful, and not violent, in nature. Sinestro warned Kal-El of the Green Lantern Corps' imminent incursion to Earth and how they sought to pursue Superman.

Five years later, Sinestro found himself at the head of Superman's army. He also recruited Hal Jordan to his fear-driven Corps after Jordan deserted the Green Lantern Corps. He fought Wonder Woman and Green Arrow, but was beaten by Green Lantern. Thaal later confronted the Flash when Barry defected from the Regime. He was beaten and imprisoned in a pyramid-like structure by the speedster.
Sinestro later thrashed and seemingly killed Superman of the alternate Earth, but was mistaken when Kal appeared behind him and removed his ring from his finger. Sinestro and Hal of his world were later brought to the Guardians of the Universe to face judgement by the alternate Green Lantern.
Possible Post-Regime Epilogue
When Superman's One Earth regime proved to be a failure similar to his on Korugar, Sinestro retreated to deep space to ruminate on its demise. Fear had long seemed the most powerful of the emotions with which to bring order to the universe. Yet, it had not been enough. Desperate, Sinestro hurled the might of the Sinestro Corps against the Life Entity, keeper of the White Power Battery.
Ultimately victorious, Sinestro now wielded the power of a White Lantern. No adversary could possibly withstand him. The light of the Green Lantern Corps would be the first he would extinguish.
