The Guardians 2nd Generation Robotic Enforcers
Space Sector: 0
Sector Partner: Inapplicable
Successor: Alpha Lanterns
The three "Fists of the Guardians" were utilized to apprehend the Green Lanterns Sinestro
of Sector 1417 and Hal Jordan
of Sector 2814. The Fists of the Guardians were created by the Guardians of the Universe
, as the their 2nd Generation of Robotic Enforcers. Presumably, the Fists were created with similar technology to their predecessors, the unstable robotic army known as the Manhunters
. This similarity might have led to the Fists apparent deactivation.
The Fists of the Guardians tracked the pair through space to an Earth prison. Sinestro and Jordan were placed under arrest and ordered to Oa for investigation of the Anti-Green Lantern uprising on the planet Korugar. Before the two Lanterns could be taken into custody, the robotic trio were distracted by a rioting crowd or prisoners. Sinestro made his escape while Jordan agreed to stay where he was and await the summons from Oa. With Jordan secured, the Fists of the Guardians pursued Sinestro.
Sinestro was stopped before he could jump into sub-space, and finally caught after a few miles' chase. In addition to the prior charges against Sinestro, the Fists of the Guardians added flight from arrest, assault on arresting officers, and needless damage to a sector not under his jurisdiction. Bound and gagged, Sinestro was brought to Oa for judgment.
In the court of the Guardians, the Fists stood guard and observed the procedures. Sinestro was found guilty and sent to the anti-matter universe. The Fists have not been seen since the trial of Sinestro and they are believed to be decommissioned. They are survived somewhat by the advent of the Alpha Lanterns and the Honor Guard Guy Gardner, who wears a uniform similar to the Fist of the Guardians.
