History[edit | edit source]

Origin[edit | edit source]

In the Anti-Matter Universe, the dark counterparts of the Guardians of the Universe were the Weaponers of Qward. This evil race after capturing a member of the Green Lantern Corps discovered that they were unable to claim the individuals power ring. Since that time, they had long sought to create their own equivalent and after a century they managed to perfect the process creating the anti-ring which had the power over the black light.

With this new weapon, they began to create their own Anti-Green Lantern Corps as these rings were capable of accomplishing the same feats that their Oan equivalent was capable of doing. However, whilst powerful, they suffered from the fact that they needed a strong will to direct them which forced the Weaponers to alter the brain capacities of their soldiers. This in turn had the unfortunate side effect of burning of their warriors and made them dependent on the rings which had a charge of only 24 hours after which they would expire along with their users.

Enemies of The Green Light[edit | edit source]

The Weaponers eventually began the next step of their operations which was kidnapping Hal Jordan at a time when he was thinking of leaving the Green Lantern Corps. This was because they wanted to examine his ring in order to perfect the Qwardians own Corps and in exchange for his help they pledged that they would spare the planet Earth. Whilst he apparently agreed with them, he worked to destroy their Power Battery but was stopped by the over two thousand Anti-Green Lanterns. He managed to ultimately escape and was rescued by Green Lantern Arisia where he explaiend to her that he had been sent undercover to ascertain the Qwardians plans. Together, they sought to escape and warn the Green Lantern Corps of this new threat.

Whilst at the portal between universes, Jordan was attacked by St'nlli, a Qwardian with the power to alter his enemies mind to evil who turned Hal Jordan against Arisia. She was ultimately saved by the other Green Lantern Corps who had tracked her since Oa and together they helped return Jordan back to normal. The Anti-Green Lantern Corps later battled one hundred Green Lanterns and during the fight it was Hal Jordan alongside Arisia as well as Katma Tui who travelled to the Qwardian's Main Power Battery where they managed to destroy it. Without its energy, the anti-power rings were powerless and the Anti-Green Lantern Corps was defeated.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Anti-Green Lantern Corps were in many ways a predecessor of the Sinestro Corps though their use of black light makes them similar to the Black Lantern Corps.
