THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS Chapter 1The Great Yellow Impurity Part 1 The Mission

Cast Sinestro

Abin Sur

Larfleeze

Sector 3998....Outer Rim Division - Tughead Cruiser

Sitting in his high arch command chair, an equine humanoid stares out into the blackness of space, watching the shiny white stars slowly streak into long lines as the ship enters into ‘Light Speed. Letting out a snort of foggy air from his wide horse-like nostrils, thick fog lifts up around his snout as he stands up from his seat.

"Larfleeze, we successfully hit light-speed. But you still haven’t given us specific coordinates." says a deep voice from behind.

Standing at 8 feet tall, the equine humanoid named Larfleeze, slowly looks over his shoulder to the crew of four behind him. His small black eyes full of drive and determination look upon his fellow crewmates, also of equine species.

They were muscular, big-boned and their dirty matted golden fur slicked against to their skin like a wet fur. Like him, they all had the short white bony tusks coming from their upper temple down to their equine chine. Yet, despite all the similarities that identified them as a long-lived and rare species, these crew members were shorter, pudgier, lacking in the strength and burning desire that was a hallmark of their species. These were broken down. These were followers, not leaders. They didn’t strive to reach the unreachable or dare to defy death for glory and greatness. Nodding at them, Larfleeze turns around to face the view of passing stars before him, but looks down to a brown aged paper in his triple jointed hand. Carefully Larfleeze unfolds the paper in his large hands to view its writings.

“Take us to the Outer Rim. Then, take us to the first planet that is one Parsec away from its edge. There is only one planet along the entire Outer Rim. " Larfleeze orders.

Everyone looks at each other in confusion before turning back to Lafleeze, “Bu-but that’s…there is no mapping system for the Outer Rim. How do you know?”

“Flob…” Larfleeze growls to the gray colored equine on his left, “….No starship, no Hall of Records, or Think Tank would have this location....except for the Guardians, which stands to its truthfulness." he states, "Those are the coordinates,GO!.” he shouts.

“Yes sir!” Flop exclaims nervously, turning his to the control panel but another member of the crew steps forward. Larfleeze simply turns away from him and sits back in his commander chair, ignoring his other crew-mate as he looks down upon a small map.

“What do want Chattle?” Larfleeze asks, his voice tinged with irritation.

“Larfleeze, we just performed the greatest heist in the universe!" Chattle states, "We have been pillaging and pirating space cruisers and trade ships for several entire moon cycles…” Chattle adds as Larfleeze still refuses to look at him, “…and now you want us to go to the Outer Rim? Where…”

"WHERE WHAT!!" hollars Larfleeze. His intense gaze upon Chattle makes him immediately step back as the rest of the crew shutter at his outburst. Grabbing Chattle by the shirt, Lafleeze pulls him close, inches away from his face, "HAVE YOUR INNARDS GROWN COLD CHATTLE?!" he yells, spitting on Chattles face with each word before pushing him away,"It seems your thirst for 'more' has failed you. ALL OF YOU!” he accuses.

“No-no..." denies Chattle says, almost choking on his words as other crew members nodding at him, "It’s not that..." he continues, "...Larfleeze it’s…”

“It’s just what Chattle!” Larfleeze interrupts.

“It’s that we're in Manhunter territory." Chattle confesses, "...and we are the last of our kind. And as you, I seek vengeance for being forced to watch our planet become a burning cinder because the Guardians deemed our species as unnecessary viruses and sent there the bloodthirsty Manhunters androids against us…

“But…” growls Larfleeze

“But...Chattle continues, "...that said, we 'are' the 'LAST' of our kind.” Chattle emphasizes, “And I wonder, as the rest of us wonder, if we are going to the Outer Rim, unmapped Space, where only Manhunters roam, the same androids responsible for our species extinction, what are you planning exactly? “ he asks.

“We rob, we sell, we extort, we blackmail, we treasure hunt…." Flob exclaims, “…that is our purpose and we are rich now thanks to you Larfleeze." he says, "But do you mean for us to die before we can even spend our fortune? What riches are you seeking that requires such a risk? Its not like we're going to rob Apokalips!” he states..

Larfleeze lets out a groan but doesn’t turn to Flob or Chattle, but keeps his black eyes fixed on the passing stars, "You short sighted fools believe you only live for what you can steal and raid but I want more. I can feel it, somewhere out there something greater than all the riches we've come to know. Something so great, even the Guardians have locked it away." he says.

Flob and Chattle look at each other in shock as Larfleeze tone remains eerily serious.

“And what's that?” Chattle exclaims.

“Yeah Larfleez…” Flob asks, “…what are we going after this time?

Larfleeze smiles an eerie grin at Flob and Chattle, “A ring.”

Meanwhile....on Oa

Inside a tall tower of smooth white rounded walls, blinding green light emits from the base of the tower into the sky, filling the inside of the tower with intense green light while 8 blue skinned men and 2 blue skinned women, all of them short in stature wear red robes descend inside the tower.

As the encircle the beam of green light , the Guardians of the Universe watch from the base of the floor emitting green light, ribbons of pink, blue, violet, yellow and red light swirl up along the beam of green like, swirling around it like snakes around a tree. As they surround the green pillar of light while other colors swirl around it, they watch as in the green pillar of light images of different planets, sectors of space and various locations appear and constantly change before the Guardians who float around the light as if sitting at a camp fire.

"As Guardians of the Universe..." exclaims Reegal, one of the male Guardians, "…we have an obligation to prevent chaos.” He says, noticing a flash of orange color amongst the other glowing lights, “I believe now we need to act.”

“Your statement sounds true Reegal.” says Zalla, one of the older female Guardians, as she peers into the swirling of colors of light below while images of Larfleeze ship hurling through space towards the Outer Rim appear, “We should extinguish his life.”

“Extinguish the last of his species?” Gurion exclaims, “Perhaps the destruction of his ship is more ideal and placing Larfleeze into a hibernation state will be more ideal"

"I believe we are acting presumptuously.” exclaims the female Guardian Sayd, who extends her short blue arms forward, expanding the green light as it brightens with intensity, revealing stolen items within the Green Lantern database, “Larfleeze is not a most intelligent creature, especially for one as old as he. Yet while what he is planning is not apparent, I do not think it is meant to endanger the universe itself. I believe he has, more simplistic ambitions. And forcefully placing him in a hibernated state is not the answer.”

“It is the answer if we say it is the answer.” Reegal exclaims, “We are Guardians of the Universe, we are the wisest.”

“Agreed, however, as Guardians we are the most cautious.” Sayd replies to Reegal, whose blue face frowns at the reply, “How do we know he is not trying to attract us to him? That could be snare unto itself.”

"Larfleeze is a parasite with the intellect of a scorched rock.” Zalla exclaims, “He cannot conceive of such a matter, is it not why we destroyed his species? To protect the remaining universe from their symbiotic drain that they were, for greed is all they know.”

“And because of us…” Sayd interjects, “…he now knows hate. I do not believe events are what they appear to be.”

“They are not.” Gurion says, “What we do know is that Larfleeze his purposefully going to the Outer Rim, he has pillaged objects have challenged GreenLanterns sector by sector. He has made himself known. He is responsible for the death of three Lanterns, and I believe that for him to enter Outer Rim territory will only stir chaos with the discarded Manhunters, it is time we destroyed him before he accidently releases the yellow imperfection.”

“What do you think Ganthet?” Sayd asks,

Ganthet quietly floats overhead, staring at the images of space in the green light, absorbed in deep thinking, "I believe my fellow Guardians we are the perpetrators of this situation. Larfleeze hate to us was spurred by us after we destroyed his planet which has led him into the darkness he is now in. The error of the Manhunters creation is now finally at hand and Larfleeze, as his intention I believe is not the destruction of the universe, but that of the Lantern Corp.”

“So what do you propose?” asks Zalla.

“Assign me the entire Lantern Corp to stop Larfleeze and more importantly, prevent what I believe he intends to do.”

“Surely the entire Green Lantern Corp is not necessary for Larfleeze!” Reegal exclaims, “It is preposterous.”

“Three Hundred and ninety Lanterns for is not necessary…” Ganthet exclaims in a loud voice, “…for Larfleeze nor the Manhunters, yet to deal with the Yellow Imperfection, I would call on all living things to assist me in its destruction if I could do so. We should get a location of all the lanterns before we implement any actions."

“Would that include Abin?” Sayd asks.

Everyone including Ganthet sighs and rubs his temples, “I do indeed hope, that out of all the Green Lanterns, that Abin Sur, somehow fell into a hot sun.”

MEANWHILE ACROSS THE GALAXY IN:Sector 2931...Planet Dryad

Stretched out comfortably on a sandy reclining seat as 4 distant suns slowly rise in the white sky over the Desert Planet Cha'kool’s horizon, a naked pink skin humanoid named Abin Sur, remains stretched on the beach chair like sand mold. Enjoying the intense heat radiating down from above, contently absorbing the sun rays as he holds a reflective mirror under his pink color face, the warm sun tans his face a dark pink as the heat rises from the sandy landscape like heat from griddle.

“This Cha’kool Sun is wonderful at this Moon Cycle, Blok.” Abin states, sipping glowing blue liquid from a rocky crystal cup, “Indeed most Wonderful.”

“If you like the sun you’ll like the Dryad females. Would you like me to summon any?” asks Blok.

A grin comes across Abin’s face as he turns to his left, looking at the muscular humanoid lying down in the hot sand beside him. His grey stony skin simply sizzled in the heat as Blok turns his head towards him and raises a arches his brow as a smile comes across his face.

“Really Blok?” Abin replies, “The Dryadian made of Rock Skin has a soft heart for females? I’d arrest you if I wasn’t in so much shock.”

“I do what keeps me occupied, is that a crime too?”

deet deet - deet deet

Sinestro raises his tanned pink hand to his face, “Crimes are what they Guardians say they are Blok, it’s why I’m employed.” He mumbles, looking at the Green Lantern ring on his finger flashing again with another *deet deet* sound emitting.

“Can’t you turn that fodders thing off?”

“We can, Guardians call it Death.” Abin sighs, slowly sitting up from his sand bed as white sand granules adhere to his muscular pink back and legs, “Yet I’m afraid that even in death I will not enjoy the quiet and serenity I feel as being your guest.” he says.

“You’re welcome any time Abin." Blok replies, "But then again you don’t ask for much. It’s not like tanning naked in the Galaxy’s second hottest desert planet is a luxury out here.” Blok huffs, watching Abin look at him with a pencil thin arched eyebrow, “But if you really need to get away that badly, you should consider working for other people, you are your own legend ya’know.”

Stark naked under the oppressive bright scorching hot suns, Abin smiles at the comment. Walking along the sizzling white hot sand, Abin Sur turns to Blok and raises his hand over his eyes from the overhead glare, “I love what I do Blok, you know that.” Abin replies, raising his glowing green ring on his hand before balling a fist.

“The question is…” Blok says, watching ribbons of green light burst from Abin’s ring and quickly wrap around his body, clothing him in a black and green styled uniform, “…do they love you as much as you love that ring?” he questions.

Smirking at his question, Abin nods respectively while lifting his arm over his head, hearing his ring crackle with green energy, “Don't you know Blok?” Abin asks, slowly lifting off the ground, “Nothing loves anyone as good as Tamaran.” he jokes.

Blok smirks and waves his heavy stony hand as Abin rockets into the sky with a boom before a ring of clouds explodes around him as he breaks through the atmosphere and into space.

Streaking through the hot air as Mach 6, Abin Sur narrows his glowing green eyes as the hot winds howl in his ears. Zooming over miles of desolate white sandy desert, dunes and craggy mountains, Abin draws in a deep breath as he looks up to the blindingly white sky overhead. In a burst of thunderous speed, cloud rings rapidly explode around Abin Sur as he breaks through the sound barriers, hurtling through up through the air until all the white sun light slowly fades away as the hot temperature drops.

Speeding out the atmosphere and into Space, Abin Sur halts his speedy flight and looks down at the rotating tan planet below, decorated with clouds and old meteor impacts. Letting out a sigh, Abin Sur turns around to the stars and sees the floating white ship hovering over the planet, The Manifest.

“Back to work.” Abin mumbles as he soars through space towards The Manifest.

ABIN SUR’S SHIP - THE MANIFEST

Sitting in a white chair, the pink skinned humanoid, decked in a green and black Green Lantern uniform stares into stars, his eyes fixed on the desert planet Dryad below as four moons slowly obit them.

"Sinestro, set course for Sector 1208. Light Speed." exclaims a voice behind him.

Glancing over his shoulder, Sinestro looks over his shoulder to Abin Sur standing behind him and wiping his face with a cloth.

“As you wish Abin.”

Wiping the last of the Dryad dirt and sand from his face, Abin slowly removes the cloth from his face, looking at Sinestro from behind sitting properly erect in the white chair that faces the wide touchscreen panel before him. Letting out a breath through nose, Abin Sur slowly walks over towards the co-piloting chair beside Sinestro, watching him set the coordinates.

“Did I take long?” Abin asks, entering information via touchscreen panel.

“No.” Sinestro curtly responds.

"I sense stress in your tone Sinestro." Abin Sur says, leaning back in his chair, his eyes closed and his arms folded as the ship engines warming for warp speed, “Please inform me if you plan to develop a tantrum or engage in a verbal warfare.”

Sinestro looks at from the corner of his eye Abin sitting in his chair, annoyed at his accurate deduction be quickly retorting, "No stress." he repeats adamantly, yet his eyes still lock on to Abin who remains perfectly still that it’s almost hard for Sinestro to determine if he died. Sinestro says nothing further as he turns his head to the view of the stars in space floating about like motionless crystals against the black water before they start to form long white lines as the ship explodes with speeding, hurtling them through space at Light Speed.

With only the hum of the ships engine buzzing in the background, Abin Sur keeps his eyes closed and his arms folded in a very comfortable position. Hearing Sinestro evidently motionless, Abin Sur finally hears Sinestros chair swivel, he was going to walk to his quarters.

"I should know if my pupil is stressed or not. I've been your mentor for two years now...no need to hide obvious feelings. Speak your mind Sinestro." Abin says, opening his green eyes that seem to see right through his pupil standing before, clenching his black gloved fists.

"Why did you visit him?" Sinestro asks, his frustration gripping his voice.

"To find out information." Abin responds, "Why?" he asks, waiting for more to come, there was always more to come with Sinestro.

Sinestro firms his pink face and points at him, "What you did was reckless!"

"And?"

"And that is a problem!" Sinestro shouts, glaring at Abin with a scolding glare, struggling to contain himself, "The Guardians denounced him! He was banished from Oa! He's a Dryad! All Dryad's have dealings with the League of Super Assassins! And you MET WITH HIM! He was the biggest embarrassment to the founding of the Green Lantern Corps. THE ONLY ONE who was chosen by a ring...whom the ring REJECTED after only HOURS of use! I'm not saying your judgment is faulty..."

"....you’re just saying it’s incorrect." Abin finishes with a smirk as he folds his arms.

Sinestro stands erect, bristled by the smug look on his mentor’s face and remains quiet as he looks at Abin Sur in the eye, "You said it, not me." he flatly, staring back into space.

Clearing his throat, Abin rests his head on his fingers while leaning on his armrest as he looks at Sinestro with a tilted head, "Your right. It was inappropriate."

Sinestro looks at him with wide eyes, nearly baffled by his admittance.

Abin Sur shakes his head and stands to face Sinestro, towering over him, "My relationship with the Dryad race, or in this case his name being Blok, has always been consistent for the betterment of all species. He is the only one in his family that is not in the League of Super Assassins, as much as he says he is involved, he says so to save his own life. Now as much as you may protest and be concerned with how OTHERS may view this, his consistent criticism of the methods and training the Corps and insistence on lethal force, as I recall you once had a problem with, were what lead to his banishment, not his integrity." he says.

"I still don't like it." Sinestro snarls.

"Of course you don’t. You view him as inferior my pupil.” Abin Sur smirks, “That is why you don’t not like him, he is, lower than you. Yet, in order to fulfill your role as Lantern, you must learn that sometimes the Universal Hall of Records, may not have the information you need and must go to cannon fodder, lower life forms drenched in debauchery or, go to Dryad and see if they can give you what you seek for free."

Sinestro looks at Abin from the corner of his eye, as Abin Sur stares right at him, knowing that Sinestro is weighing those words.

“And I found out a great deal.” Abin adds.

Suddenly, Sinestro's ring glows bright green as a voice speaks from the ring:

Attention all Three Hundred and Nine Lanterns. Priority message from The Guardians of the Universe. One on One Hologram sequence initiating

A short blue guardian, dressed in a red robe, appears on the hologram playing from Sinestro's ring.

I give attention to all Three Hundred and Nine Green Lantern Corpsmen. It has come to the attention of the Guardians, the alien space pirate known as Larfleeze, has committed a robbery of the utmost audacity on planet Maltus, the home planet of the Guardians. Among the items stolen are artifacts that are priority for the Integrity of the Green Lanterns as a whole. We have initiated Protocol Emerald. All Lantern Agents must rendezvous at Sector 3900 regardless of your location or immediate preoccupation. Upon arrival at Sector 3900, you will meet Guardian Ganthet, who will lead you all personally to the recovery of the artifacts and the arrest of Larfleeze. Please be charged and prepared for Aggressive Negotiations.

END OF TRANSMISSION

"Well we have orders now so, whatever you made me complicit in his time will have to wait." Sinestro says as he picks up Abin Sur's miniature charging lantern, handing it to him, “Let’s go.”

"We are not going right away." Abin Sur states as he gets up from his seat, and starts punching in the new coordinates, “We’ll let ‘The Manifest’ take us.”

"ARE YOU KIDDING ME!" Sinestro exclaims, "WE ARE LANTERNS FOR OA’S SAKE! WE ESTABLISH ORDER IMMEDIATELY AND EXACTINGLY! NOT AT A SHIPS PACE OR AT OUR CONVENIENCE!!"

"Calm down." Abin Sur says keeping his eyes locked on Sinestro's sneering face, “We are going to take our ship regardless of orders as it would be foolish to arrive with the potential for a battle with your ring depleted on energy at our point which is in Sector 540."

Sinestro arches his eyebrow, looking at Abin Sur with disgust, "Ever since you started visiting those people on that desert bedrock you've been OVER charging your ring to the point that it’s crackling green electricity. YOUR sooooo slow to battle when you have to fight, ALWAYS doing things at your pace, never listening to ALL your orders...I'm supposed to be YOUR pupil and you DON'T LISTEN TO EVEN DIRECT ORDERS and you leave ME to pick up the rest! We are supposed to an ESTABLISH ORDER AT ALL COSTS! We are Green Lanterns Abin, the military force for Justice, to establish ORDER wherever, WHENEVER, HOWEVER! A TRUE LANTERN..."

Abin points his finger in Sinestro’s face, cutting him off, "A TRUE my pupil, assesses all situations first, rather than blindly going into a situation to get him or others killed. That is the way. We fight when we must and keep it short and to the point. We get what we must get done...done, that is training 101." he states firmly.

Sinestro remains quiet as he just stares at Abins ring overcharging in the portable lantern.

Abin sighs as he stares into the blackness of space as they travel at great speeds, "Sinestro, you must learn if out of all the things I've trained you to do, that the way of the Guardians is secretive though they are not evil, but you must not rush into every single order without assessing things for yourself. The Guardians just called all Three Hundred and Nine Lanterns across the Quadrant, obviously this is not just a recovery of artifacts!"

Sinestro sits in his seat, listening begrudgingly, "But..."

"But nothing Sinestro!" Abin states, "You are my pupil, my responsibility. I have not trained a pupil who has died yet.”

“That’s because they never gave you a pupil.”

“So that means your odds are high.” Abin smirks, watching Sinestro roll his eyes.

“Now listen. Blok enlightened me about Larfleeze.” Abin says, “It has always bothered me that Larfleeze, who has been an enemy of the Guardians for the past two centuries, and with his life-span as long as it is, never amassed riches, never amassed power. According to Blok, which is why we went to that Desert Planet, the League of Super Assassin paid Larfleeze for a job, upon which when he completed, he managed to steal an Ancient Map that was long thought non-existent and something the League of Super Assassins wanted very badly."

Sinestro raises his eyebrow, "What is it?”

"A map from the first Lightsmiths, the crafters of our Power Battery, detailing the whereabouts of the Green Lantern rings true weakness.” Abin replies.

Sinestro stands up in shock, “Our rings HAVE no Weakness! The Guardians….”

“Will you sit down.” Abin states, watching Sinestro looking down at him, “How are you going to know all the things I’m to tell you if you don’t shut up.”

Sinestro clenches his jaw and sits down before Abin as he continues, “Larfleeze has the original map of the Green Lanterns power source. Apparently on the same map, if what Blok says is true, the map contains the location of the imperfection needed to destroy the Green Lantern Corps."

His mind working on overdrive to put together the pieces, Sinestro stands back from Abin in pure shock, “That’s…that’s impossible.”

“Not exactly.” Abin replies, “For years now, I have been researching our so-called, ‘All Powerful Rings’ and there is an imperfection with them, but every time I am close to it, the Guardians have stopped me. I believe that Larfleeze now knows where and what the source is. That’s why the Guardians have called in all of the Lanterns.”

Sinestro looks at him confused, "But it could be a trap even if they get past the Manhunters on the outer rim. We have to warn..."

“No!” Abin Sur snaps, watching Sinestro’s eyes open wide.

“IF WE DON’T WARN THEM THEY WILL DIE!” Sinestro exclaims, “They are already going into Manhunter Territory! They…

“Need us.” Abin interjects, much to Sinestro’s surprise, “If Larfleeze seems to have found the greatest secret in a millennia, The Green Lanterns weakness, then alerting the Guardians the Lanterns to run for Larfleeze to get it, does the Corp no justice. If they get there he Larfleeze has it, they are at risk, but not us, that is if we will take our time, be the last ones there, and while for the first time in all the history of the Corps every last Lanterns descends into one place on the Outer Rim, fight the Manhunters, and search for Larfleeze, we will come in last find Larfleeze he will notice us get close enough to him to kill him.”

“Kill him?” Sinestro says in surprise, “Green Lanterns do not kill.”

Sinestro sits down, looking at his green ring before looking into outer space, “I hope you know what you’re doing Abin.”

“True, but since the Guardians explicit 'No Patrol' sector is where they evidently hid a weakness that will possibly endanger the entire Lantern Corp, compromised us and now are blindly leading the entire Lantern Corp to their possible deaths….” Abin Sur says, walking away from him, “…I see no other choice.”

"It’s WRONG Abin! We’re supposed to be motivated by Willpower NOT Fear!" Sinestro exclaims, watching Abin walk out the cockpit.

“Survival is Willpower my young pupil. If you want to know what fear is, ask the Guardians why they asked all the Lanterns to come when they could do this themselves.” He replies as the glass partition closes behind him.

THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS

Chapter 1

The Great Yellow Impurity

Part 2

Show No Fear

THE OUTER RIM - PLANET OKAARA (VEGA SYSTEM)

No Caption Provided

No Caption Provided

Planet Okaara (Vega System)

Breaking through the thick plumes of purple clouds, the blue skinned Guardian of the Universe member Gantlet, dives out the clouds and hurtles through the midnight air with ease inside his green energy sphere. Zooming over the dark of Okaara, Ganthet looks skyward, getting glimpses of the intense fighting that rumbles like thunder. Halting his flight, Ganthet spreads out his hands and narrows his eyes, watching hundreds of Green Lanterns engaged in aerial fights with the android humanoids known as Manhunters. Watching hordes of green and red laser blast exchange between the two sides fill the sky, Ganthet raises his hand over his head a deafening explode quakes the sky with dozens upon dozens of other Green descending into the atmosphere towards him.

Within moments, Ganthet sees the various Green Lanterns before him. Some female with purple skin and pink hair, others members squid-like with yellow tentacles and glowing green rings, and many more before him, ready for orders while many more remain over the atmosphere, still engaged in battle.

“WELL DONE!” Ganthet complements, but turns away from them and point to the forest landscape, “But do not take rest, what lies ahead of us is more challenging than the menacing Manhunters.” he declares.

"How did the Manhunters know were coming in the first place?!" asks Arkkis, a dog-humanoid Green Lantern.

"Once Lafleeze engaged the Manhunters upon his entry to the planet..." Ganthet explains, "...it caused the Manhunters to identify us as the intruder to their space sector while Larfleeze plummeted to the planet leaving us to engage them for him." he says.

Another Green Lantern with blue tentacles for extremities looks to Ganthet, "That's Impossible! They would..."

“It doesn’t not matter!” interrupts a pink humanoid with purple lips, "We have to stay on point with the task at hand." she says, turning to Ganthet, "What are you orders Sir."

"Thank you Arin Sur." Ganthet nods before pointing down to the planet covered in trees, "This is part of Larfleeze scheme. He is aware we cannot find him quickly if our attention is divided. He is depending on us being preoccupied with the Manhunters for him, thinning our numbers, since he is only a...."

Suddenly a thunderous explosion drowns out Ganthet's voice and shakes the air around them. The band of loyal Green Lanterns promptly raise their eyes skyward. Consecutive green explosion ignite the atmosphere through the clouds with streaks of green laser fire colliding with bright white lasers.

"Search through the planet!" Ganthet orders, pointing to his left, " I want ten lanterns going East, ten South, ten North and another ten West. I want five going North-East, another five going north west, another five going south-east and another five going south-west...the remaining thirty lanterns, including Arin Sur, will come with me. Upon sighting of Larfleeze or any yellow streak of light...”

Everyone nervously glances at each oddly at Ganthet's saying ‘yellow light’ as they have never heard of such things.

“EHEM…” Ganthet raises his voice among the chatter, looking at them sternly "...if you see a yellow LIGHT, communicate as to your location immediately and wait for us to arrive, now GO!" he orders.

Somewhere on the Planet...

Deep dimly lit cavernous tunnel, Larfleeze leaves his two equine-crew members in front of the Cave with blasters in hand. Staring up at the raging battle between Manhunters and Green Lantern rage on, the rest of Larfleeze crew proceed into the long dark tunnel.

Bas Flob and Chattle slosh their way through the knee-deep water, marveling at the orange and yellow lightning bugs that crawl on the rock ceiling over them, glowing like candlelight. As they slosh through the murky waters of the cave, the smell of rotten fish, moldy mud and wet rock fills their sensitives noses so much that Flob, vomits into the water behind him as Larfleeze eagerly sloshes ahead at a faster pace.

“I never seen anything like this before Larf." Chattle says, hearing his voice echo down the winding tunnel.

“No one has seen anything like this before.” Flob coughs, wiping his mouth before looking to Larfleeze who leads with the way with a glowing ‘light stick’ in his hand, “Larf, please tell me are we close to this thing? Because once those Green Lanterns are done with those Manhunters they’re going to be all over us.” he says worriedly.

Holding the yellow illumined light stick in his triple-jointed hand, Larfleeze looks over his shoulder to Flob and Chattle sloshing through the water behind him, "It doesn’t matter." he sternly replies, "The Lanterns found us as I hope they would. They are fighting the Manhunters for us as I Planned. And will finally get what I have been searching years for.” he concludes.

“That's all well and good but are you sure about this?” Chattle asks, squinting his small eyes as he tries to peer into the dark water. Suddenly Chattle opens his eyes wide in shock at the sight of all the fish in the water swimming the opposite way from the direction they are headed, “Larf I-I don’t know about this…”

“ENOUGH!” Larfleeze roars, glaring at him from over his shoulder, his eyes full of rage, "I will hear no more of your COWARDLINESS! I know what I am doing. MANHUNTERS are robotic conquerors CREATED and DISCARDED by the Guardians who are responsible for the destruction of our species. They will deal with their 'mistakes' in the atmosphere while we get the key to their righteous destruction. The Manhunters will prioritize the Green Lanterns and Guardians exclusively which means you can SHUT UP AND KEEP MOVING!" he roars.

Chattle and Flob look at him with fear as Larfleeze turns away from them, and climbs over smooth stones that lead them out the water

Flob and Chattle nervously look at each but then notice all the orange and yellow glowing lightning bugs on the ceiling follow after Larfleeze, leaving them in the dark.

Watching the swarm behind them, Flob looks at them with an arched eyebrow, “What the…”

Hastily climbing over the cavernous stones and rock, Chattle and Flob climb out the water and collapse onto the hard stone floor.

“Flob.” Chattle calls.

Catching his breath as the stench begins to subside, Flob looks up to see Chattle staring at Larfleeze in the cavern tunnel with the yellow and orange lightning bugs swarming around him! Buzzing around him as if in perfect synchronicity, yellow and orange lightning bugs flutter around Larfleeze, pulsating their light brighter and brighter. Holding up his arms, Larfleeze watches in wonderment out of the myriad of insects, one lands carefully on his chest. Immediately all the lightning bugs flying about, shut off their light and drop to the cave floor, dying and leaving Larfleeze and his companions in the dark.

“Give me 'MY' torch.” Lafleeze orders, seeing the bug on his chest staring back him.

Frustrated and annoyed, Chattle rummages through his large bag, but they jolt at the sound of a thud against the cavern wall.

“Lanterns!” Chattle loudly whispers loudly, pulling out a weapon.

Hearing a thud again, they all look to the cavern wall, hearing a deep bass-tone hum churning behind the wall.

“That wasn't from outside.” Flob says nervously,

Suddenly a low hum vibrates the rock walls of the cave tunnel. Slowly it grows louder and louder. Trying to keep his balance Larfleeze grabs onto the rock wall to keep his foot as the insect glows bright yellow, but than flickers brightly changes its color to orange. Larfleeze eyes open wide, as the insect flies off him and sets on his the back of his furry hand resting on the rock wall. Suddenly the rock wall splinters and cracks like ice under Larfleeze palm. Powerful yellow light bleeds through cracking rock wall, making Larfleeze squint from its bright intensity, "ITS HERE!" he shouts.

“LARFLEEZE!” Flob yells, turning to run out the tunnel but a massive rock drops out the ceiling slams down in the waist deep water, sealing off their exit.

"WE’RE TRAPPED!" yells Chattle in panic, but suddenly lifts his hand over his eyes as he and Flob watch the rock wall beside Larfleeze crumble apart and collapse with blinding yellow light filling the tunnel as the sun came inside!

Dropping to his knees, Larfleeze holds up his hands to the light, "MY DESTINY!!!” he shouts.

Meanwhile....some miles away

Flying at fast speeds over the forest planet with Lanterns in tow, Ganthet’s eyes scan the landscape as they search for Larfleeze until streaks Arin Sur to his side and points into the distance, “SIR LOOK!”

Ganthet as well as the other lanterns look in shock as tower of massive yellow light shoots into sky, turning all the trees and foliage around it yellow!

Ganthet eyes open wide, "By the stars..."

MEANWHILE, IN THE CAVE....

No Caption Provided

Larfleeze cries and laughs hysterically on his knees, bathed the warm glow of a yellow orb pulsating within the cave, "MY DESTINY IS HERE!" he shouts.

However, the lights slowly ebbs, allowing Larfleeze to see that the light coming from inside the rock wall takes the shape of a woman. Stunned, Lafleeze horselike ears stand up straight as he observes her. Her entire almost composed of light pulsates with yellow light. Her skin fair yellow and her hair bright white hair. Opening her sharp yellow eyes, the woman weakly pulls forward but falls back onto her bright yellow stone, restricted by bright orange energy chains around her ankles, wrists, waist and neck.

Shaking with fear in the waist deep waters of the cave, Chattle and Flob hug each other in great fear as Larfleeze remains ahead of them on the risen cave floor before the mysterious woman who slowly opens her eyes. Her irises bright yellow, bats her long yellow eyelashes, and pouts her soft golden lips part open before taking a breath that seems to cause a rush of wind within the cave tunnel.

"You have found me…"

Larfleeze clears his throat at the woman's deep voice that seems to vibrate through his very soul. Licking his dirty palm, Larfleeze slicks back his mangy fur on his head, "I-I am, I mean I have." he says, mesmerized by the humanoid woman.

"SERIOUSLY THIS IS WHY WE ARE HERE!" Chattle yells, “FOR A TERRAN FEMALE!” he shouts.

Larfleeze pays him no attention as the woman who glows so brightly, smiles at Larfleeze, "The Guardians..." she whimpers, "...have confined me here for a millennia's upon millennia's'..." she cries. Bright white tears roll down her pale yellow illuminate face as she sobs, "And now you have brought them to kill me."

"NO!" Larfleezes exclaims, standing on his feet, "I am here to save you.

The men stare in shock as the rocky floor under Larfleeze slowly begins lifting him up towards, without his notice.

"LARFLEEEEZE! GET OUT OF HERE NOW!" Flob yells as they all start calling him

Seeing Larfleeze ignore them, Chattle and Flob get ready to crawl out from the water to get him, but suddenly the walls beside begin glowing bright yellow with insects eating their way through.

"OH FRACK!" Flob shouts, "LARFLEEZE WE GOTTA GET OUT OF HERE NOW!" he yells.

Unable to hear their voices, Larfleeze eyes slowly glow yellow as he's entranced by the woman. Floating off the cave floor in a swirl of yellow light, Larfleeze is brought closer to the woman in cave wall.

"Will you free me?"

Completely enraptured by her awing beauty, Larfleeze nods at her as the woman's golden eyes seem to pulsate with streaks of yellow electricity, as does his!

"Yes...my queen." Larfleeze drools.

"Prove your devotion..."

Nodding over to the Flob and Chattle, the woman smiles at Larfleeze

"….refuse to share me."

Immediately Larfleeze drops back to the cave floor, firm on his ffeet and marches to Chattle and Flob.

"WHOA!" they both say at once, holding up their hands at Larfleeze glares at them with angered yellow eyes.

"SHE”S MESSING WITH YOU MIND!” Chattle shouts, "SNAP OUT OF IT!"

Closing his eyes, Larfleeze takes a deep breath before exhaling calmly. Opening his eyes, Chattle and Flob see his irises have returned back to normal, however, Larfleeze tilts his head at them, "No." he says.

To their horror, Chattle and Flob watch as Larfleeze eyes glow bright yellow once again! Silent, Larfleeze holds nothing back and jumps into the waist deep. Sloshing over to them, Larfleeze hauls off and punches Chattle across his face with all his might, sending him reeling!

"LARFLEEZE STOP!" Flob shouts, jumping on his back.

However Larfleeze, upon seeing Chattle hold his face as he comes out the water, angrily flips Chattle off his back, "YOU WILL NOT HAVE HER!" he hollers, pulling out a knife from his back.

"WE NEVER WANTED HER!" Flob shouts back, "WE'RE THE LAST OF OUR KIND! DON'T DO THIS!" he pleads.

Chattle nods, "GET HER OUT OF YOUR HEAD! LEAVE WITH US NOW!" he exclaims.

Larfleeze tosses the knife between his hands with great skill before snarling at them both, "She's MINE!" he screams, bolting at them both. Skilled and experienced, Larfleeze ducks and blocks their blows before swiftly slicing Chattle's neck, bashing Flob's head against the rock wall and stabbing him multiple times in the gut and chest before pushing his head under the water. Holding him firmly under the water to drown him, Larfleeze yellow eyes glare at Chattle, clutching his bleeding neck as he slides down against the rock wall into the water. Glaring at him Chattle, a muffle crack from under the water startles Chattle as Larfleeze lets Flobs, watching his body float in the water with a his neck now snapped.

"Larfleeze..." Chattle pleads, "STOP!"

Bolting for him, Larfleeze overpowers his friend, forcing him down under the water. Grinning at the sight of Larfleeze stabbing Chattle multiple times, the woman watches as Larfleeze finishes his assault. His comrades now dead, Larfleeze tiredly sloshes out the water, drops the knife on the cave floor and drops onto his knees. Content, the woman yellow eyes lock with Larfleeze.

"You're devotion is proven, break my chains."

Larfleeze sees the glowing orange binds on her neck and arms and waist are transparent and breakable. His yellow eyes glare with anger at them, "WHO WOULD DARE DO THIS TO YOU!"

"The Evil Guardians for they know only Avarice feels no fear."

Her reply makes a heated rage rise in Larfleeze as he looks up at the cavern ceiling, feeling the rumble from the battle outside, "They will pay for what they have done, I swear it."

Grabbing hold of the glowing orange binding, Larfleeze shakes his head, his eyes shifting from yellow to orange as he turns to the glowing woman, "What shall I get in return for my devotion?" Larfleeze asks, as he can now see the woman again. "I have killed for you, caused others much fear and have managed to get all the Green Lanterns here...I WANT something in return." he demands.

The woman smiles, seeing his face eager for her reply.

"With others I sense much fear...but with you, only greed fills your heart. And that's what I shall give you. Something that you want, forever.

Larfleeze smiles evilly, "Done." he says. Grabbing the lit orange chains binding her, Larfleeze pulls at the chains. Tugging with all his might, Larfleeze eyes glow brightly orange as all the chains around the woman, shatter. rips off one of the bindings.

As he continues to rip off the orange bindings around her, Larfleeze pulls off the last, stepping back as he watches the woman look at him with her piercing yellow eyes.

Lifting off the yellow stone, the woman holds up her hands away from her body, floating over cavern floor with the broken orange chains at her feet. Taking a deep breath, she tightens her fists, feeling her power return to her. Opening her eyes, she looks to Larfleeze, waiting.

“Your reward."

With a smirk, the woman lifts her hand up. Hearing the wall rumble behind her, Larfleeze turns around to see the wall crumble apart. Beaming orange light bathes him as his eyes open wide in wonderment. Standing onto his feet, Larfleeze gawks at the sight of the a giant Orange Power Battery Lantern, churning with fiery orange flames and orange chains attached to it.

Laughing hysterically, Larfleeze covers his face as the woman watches the yellow woman's eyes turn black, "Now I am free." she mumbles, closing her eyes and lifting up her head.

As if having come up for fresh air out of water, Larfleeze turns around and sees the cave now dark. The mysterious woman, nowhere to be found. His friends, face down floating dead in the cavern water. Looking back to the Orange Lantern glowing in the cavern wall, Larfleeze rises onto his feet and steps forward to the crackling Orange Power battery. Ribbons of light burst from the battery and grab hold of him by his arms and legs, steadying him. Bursting out the battery like a small lightning bug, a flicker of light buzzes in the air before landing on Larfleeze furry hand and melts over a portion of his finger, forming a ring.

Hearing a sizzle, Larfleeze grabs his wrist as the ring burns into his flesh. Screaming in pain, Larfleeze staggers about, grunting in pain as the orange ring sprouts a glowing orange jewel in the blackness of the cave. Chuckling, Larfleeze feels a surge of power course through his veins. Orange lines form up along his arm, stretching to his neck and his face. Looking at the power battery, Larfleeze eyes turn black with bright orange irises focusing on the battery. reaches out for the ring as it glows bright orange in his eyes and utters, "Its mine..." he laughs, "ITS ALL MINE!!!!"

Meanwhile....Outside

Standing inside a blue energy sphere, Ganthet makes hasty flight as more Green Lanterns drop out from space, having finished off the Manhunters and assemble behind him. Three Hundred and Seventeen strong flying behind him, Ganthet narrows his eyes as he looks at the distance ahead tower of yellow light beaming into the sky.

Looking over his shoulder at the Lanterns, Ganthet takes a deep nervous breath as he notices the the massive yellow light blazing in the sky from afar, coming closer on their approach of it. Ganthet communicates using the green lantern rings on the Lanterns.

"Attention all the Lantern. Contain the yellow light without DIRECT contact. Once it has been contained, it is imperative we destroy the ENTIRE area! Any signs of life resulting within the light are to be elimated with LETHAL I repeat, LETHAL FORCE!"

All the lanterns looks at each other in astonishment as Ganthet halts his flight in mid-air, holding out his arms as all the Green Lanterns come to a stop before him. Floating in the air and looks at them all Ganthet narrows his eyes, noticing a cave with an orange glow slowly growing with intensity. Hastily Ganthet points to it, "DESTROY THAT CAVE! NOW!" he orders.

Suddenly, a horrible and echoing shriek of a woman's voice fills the air of the entire planet as all the Lanterns cover their ears as does Ganthet. The shriek, so loud, and so intense, all the Lanterns as does Ganthet, fall downward to the purple high grass of the planet.

Ganthet, on his knees, holds his ears now covered in his purple blood, looks up with a strain as the shrieking comes a to stop. Suddenly, the ground rumbles for an explosion of yellow light engulfs the atmosphere. Rolling onto his back, Ganthet sees his fellow Green Lanterns on the grassy ground, watching the forest around them slowly turn yellow.

"SHIELDS UP!" Ganthet orders. Immediately all l the Green Lanterns rings form green tinted energy shields around them all dark evening sky brightens yellow from a star rising flicking brightly over the land 10 hours early.

Ganthet firms his face as all the lanterns stand behind him in awe as Arin Sur, daughter of Abin Sur, races to Ganthet's side.

"WHAT IS THAT!" yells Arin Sur stunned at the phenomena but then looks at Ganthet who falls to his knees his eyes, struck with fear!

"GANTHET!" Arin Sur cries out to the Guardian who remains on his knees, paralyzed. Looking away from him, Arin Sur raises up her fist and crackling green ring in aim as do her fellow lanterns as the bright star's floats over towards them and slowly descends from the sky, just over the the top of the yellowing trees. Its bright vibrant light ebbs away, revealing the form of a woman, staring at them with a scowl.

"EVERYONE GET READY!" Arin Sur yells. Quickly the sky behind the woman glows yellow while hovering over the trees, staring the horde of Green Lanterns that have amassed.

Arin Sur's gasps. Her naturally pink hue turning pale around her face in shock. Glancing at Ganthet, as doe the other Green Lanterns, Arin stops her feet at him, trying to snap him out of his locked in gaze, "SIR YOUR ORDERS!" yells Arin Sur, trying to snap him out of it.

Ganthet, gulps standing up on his feet, "Sh-show no fa-fear..." he stammers.

Seeing Ganthet paralyzed with fear, Arin Sur grits her teeth, determined for this not to go sideways, "ALRIGHT YOU!" she shouts to the entity, "I, ARIN SUR, GREEN LANTERN OF THE SECTOR SEVEN ONE, AM PLACING YOU UNDER ARREST AS A GALACTIC ENTITY OF TERRORISM. NOW IDENTIFY YOURSELF TO BE REMANDED INTO CUSTODY!"

At that moment, the ground starts to vibrate as the trees start to shake. The woman's hollow white eyes turn bright yellow as a evil smirk comes across her face. Suddenly a massive , parasitic creature slowly stands up from the trees behind the woman. Arin Sur's eyes open wide in horror as all the Green Lanterns behind her step back, as the creature takes up the entire sky.

THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS

Chapter 1

The Great Yellow Impurity

Part 3 - Planet Okaara

THE OUTER RIM - PLANET OKAARA (VEGA SYSTEM)

No Caption Provided

Strapped in his seat, Abin Sur, the pink skinned Master of his pupil Sinestro, types his widescreen control panel as their ship hurtles through the blackness of Space at Hyper-speed. Placing his rosy pink hand on the lever controlling the ships speed, Abin slowly pulls back on the lever, reducing the ships velocity as he keeps his eyes on the long lines of passing stars becoming more visible as they pass.

Glancing at the ships radar embedded on his armrest, Abin nods, "We're getting close Sinestro, get ready."

Hearing no response from his pupil, only the hum of the ships powerful turbines vibrating through ship, Abin Sur cuts Sinestro a sideways glance as he's seated beside him. Arching his brow, Abin Sur's hyperclear blue eyes fix on his pupil, who simply stares at the passing stars.

"What is it?" Abin Sur asks, letting go of the ships speed lever, "Get it out now before we land." he insists while reaching out to his crackling ring inside the green lantern charging port.

Letting out a sigh, Sinestro leans forward, his face in a pensive stare at the passing stars.

"Do you think..." Sinestro pauses, quickly reconsidering his question as he draws a deep breath, "...that I'll be a good Lantern?" he asks, awkwardly looking to Abin.

Abin smirks at the sound of the question he himself had asked to one of the guardians ages ago.

"What makes you think you’re not?" replies Abin, smirking at Sinestro's narrow eyebrow curl up in reply.

Sinestro's face firms. "What does that mean?"

Abin shakes his head as he stands on his feet, sliding on his Green Lantern ring while the Ships screen indicators flash in bright green letters, ‘Arriving in 30 seconds.’

Abin points at Sinestro, "It means that you should 'know' if you'll be a good Green Lantern because that is something you can control by your own WILL." he answers. "No one can control you, not your ring, not the guardians, only you. It is by your will that you'll either help others because its 'right' or out of ego. Either way you'll be a lantern, but a 'good' lantern? Only by your choices, can you determine that." he states.

Sinestro remains quiet, looking down at the green ring on his pink finger.

Seeing his words weigh heavily on Sinestro, Abin rolls his eyes, "From what I've seen so far however..." he smirks, "...you'll be better than me." he says reassuringly, but then points at Sinestro, "That is, 'IF' you keep that over-confidence in check and if YOU don't break my sisters heart."

Sinestro hastily stands up from his seat seeing they will be dropping out of hyperspace in 10 seconds.

"I'd never break Arin's heart." Sinestro exclaims.

Standing in front of Sinestro, Abin, places his large rosy pink hand on Sinestro's shoulder, "Spoken like a true green lantern and a friend.." he retorts, patting him on the back, “Maybe when this is all said and done, I can…”

PROXIMITY ALERT, PROXIMITY ALERT!

Seeing the warnings alerts appearing on the ships screen, Abin speaks out, "COMPUTER, DROP US OUT OF HYPER SPEED NOW!"

Dropping out of Hyperspeed, long streaks of white stars return whole and spherical as Planet Okaara comes into full view.

“I don’t see anything endangering our proximity!” Sinestro shouts but Abin steps ahead of him and looks through the windshield as they approaching the massive dark forest Planet Okaara, slowly become enveloped in a yellow color.

PLANET OKAARA

No Caption Provided

“By the stars is that yellow light?!” Sinestro mumbles, never having seen such a phenomena.

“COMPUTER INITIATE PLANETARY DIAGNOSTIC SCAN NOW!!” Abin shouts to the ship.

Suddenly, debris begins raining on the ship like hail until larger chunks of debris collide into the ship, cracking the windshield as Abin and Sinestro struggle to keep their footing.

“Increase shields to 300 percent!” Abin orders Sinestro, “Get us close as we can to the planet!"

"Not gonna happen.' Sinestro replies, "The Asteroid field battering our shields! We won’t make it even halfway. We should drop the ship and use are rings to get to the surface. " Sinestro shouts as the ship thrashes back and forth making Abin and Sinestro clasps on to the control panel.

"This isn’t an asteroid field Sinestro!" Abin exclaims as the ship continues to shake about like a plane in harsh turbulence and points at the debris, "WE’RE HITTING BODY PARTS…”

“WHAT!” Sinestro shouts.

“THESE ARE BODY PARTS OF DESTROYED MANHUNTERS!" Abin exclaims, pointing to a passing chunk of debris, “SEE! It’s a face! Green Lanterns must’ve engaged the Manhunters…all of them!”

“We’ve got to get out this…”

Suddenly Abin and Sinestro's green lantern rings project illuminated green panels with dark green lettering as a robotic voice says:

Green Lantern Corp Alert: Security Level increased to Level 5. All Green Lanterns Granted Permission of Lethal Force...

Sinestro mouth opens in shock at the alert their rings just voiced. Looking to Abin who's face remains stern and pensive, Sinestro points at his ring, “Did they just…”

“Quiet Sinestro!" Abin snaps, "Ring, Status update on Planet Okaara.”

‘…Planetary Status - Manhunters Remaining around Planet Okaara Zero. 70 Green Lanterns relieved of Life Force Usage...

Sinestro eyes open wide at the news, "No!"

"...Correction 149 Green Lanterns relieved of Life Force...."

"THATS IMPOSSIBLE!" yells Abin, "THAT’S HALF THE LANTERN CORP!" he shouts as the ship trembles violently to the left and right in its descent into planet Okaara’s atmosphere.

Seeing Sinestro staring at the Death Toll count rise on his ring's alert, Abin snaps his fingers at Sinestro, pulling him out of his train of thought, "Listen Sinestro, whatever's happening on the surface, don't...."

Suddenly Abin and Sinestro’s lantern rings envelope each of them in a bright green bubble shield.

Self-preservation mode initiated

The rings declaration rings in Abin's ears as Abin’s entire ship explodes around them in a fiery heap of twisted metal and searing heat! Jarred from the intense explosion, Sinestro free-falls at high speed

Plummeting to the planet surface at high speed, Abin and Sinestro freefall through the howling cold wind as the finish entering through the atmosphere. Thick walls of white foggy clouds surround them. Unable to see anything, Abin and Sinestro’s rings recede the protective green sphere away as the thick white foggy clouds evaporate away, revealing the planet’s surface below.

No Caption Provided

Dear hala…” Sinestro gasp in disbelief as he sees from the arial view, of the yellow colored atmosphere!

“ARE YOU SEEING THIS ABIN! THE ENTIRE ATMOSPHERE CHANGED!” Sinestro shouts, looking over to Abin plummeting a few away yards from him.

However, Sinestro sees Abin's face grow worried as he points before, "INCOMING!" he shouts.

Sinestro look below to the surface and sees, to his great surprise, hundreds of yellow laser blasts streaking up from the planet towards them as if an army awaited them.

“SHIELDS!” Sinestro shouts. Quickly he and Abin thrust their fists forward, erecting a large bright green wall construct in front of themselves.

Within milliseconds, a hail of yellow laser blasts explode off Abin and Sinestro's joint green construct. Gritting his teeth, Abin sees his arm grow weak as their contruct beings to crack as its hammered by the ongoing attack.

Looking over to Abin with great concern, Sinestro taken off guard as yellow blast shatters through his green construct like glass, exploding off of him.

"SINAASTROOO!!!" yells Abin as Sinestro is end back, flipping back uncontrollably through the air in pain as the yellow blasts explode over his entire body, engulfing him in a yellow cloud while he falls to the planet's surface.

~*~*~*~*Some time ago.

Standing on the terrace that looks at the blue ocean, the shapely pink skinned humanoid stood in the doorway of the terrace as soft light graces her rosy skin. Slightly turning her head, her short blue hair, its points tucked behind her pointy ears, glisten as she looks over her shoulder to him. Her soft pink face and blue eyes light up with joy as the four moons of Kraik descending into the watery horizon. Turning towards him at the terrace door, holding only a silk black sheet around her, she slowly walks over to him, and places her warm slender hand to his face.

"Do you love me?"

Feeling the urge to answer, Sinestro’s captivated blue eyes look at Arin, but than to the distracting glow in her once blue eyes.

"Answer me beloved, do you love me?" she asks again softly as a strange woman, enveloped in yellow light, rises from the sea’s watery horizon.

"I...I love you." Sinestro responds, but his eyes glance towards the threat on the horizon.

"Say it again." Arin requests, her voiced filled with playfulness.

However Sinestro gulps, seeing the night envelope the landscape yet the yellow light from the horizon grows as bright as day. Sweat drips down Sinestro’s face the more he sees in the watery horizon the glowing yellow woman lift over the horizon and into the sky as the pale moon rise over her.

"Sinestro..." calls the woman with a smirk her tendril whips up to the moon, wraps around in and pumps yellow energy into, “…do you fear me?

Sinestro gulps, backing away from Arin who stands before him.

“Sinestro…what is wrong?” Arin asks, watching Sinestro back away and tremble as sweat pours down his face.

“Na-nothing…” Sinestro says but suddenly sees the yellow woman’s tendril stretch across the surface of the waters for miles and wrap around Arin’s waist.

“AAAAAAAAARIN!” Sinestro shouts, as he reaches out to her but Arin is yanked out the room and over the surface of the waters.

“AAAAAAAAARAAAAAAAAAAN!” Sinestro shouts, leaping off the bed, ready to leap through the window and into flight but the glowing yellow women appears on the terrace, causing Sinestro to raise his hands over his eyes, “FEAR ME!” she roars.

“ARIN! WHERE IS ARIN!” Sinestro shouts as the yellow light burns his skin.

“FEAAAAAAAR MEEEEEEE!”

“NOOOOOOOOOOOO!”

~~*~*~**~

ATTEMPT TWO, NEURAL STIMULATION ACTIVATED

Green Electricity suddenly shoots out from Sinestro's ring, coursing through his nerves and muscles. Suddenly Sinestro's eyes open wide. Pain grips his body as he's shocked awake by his ring!

“AAAAAAAH!”screams Sinestro, clutching his hand and he rolls in the air. Wind howls in his ears as the mind-numbing pain quickly dissipates from his ring. Trying to rally himself, Sinestro sees nothing but burning debris covered in flames around him from Abin's ship.

PROXIMITY ALERT, PROXIMITY ALERT.

Hearing his ring's warning, Sinestro's bright blue eyes quickly focus at the rapidly approaching yellow trees beneath him,.seconds away from greeting him.

"NOOOOOOOOO!" Sinestro yells.

Thrusting out his clenched fist, Sinestro's blue eyes glow bright green as a powerful green energy beam bursts out from his ring! Streaking down to the planet's surface, Sinestro's energy beam slams into the yellow ground, burning into the soil to slow his descent. Coming down at terminal velocity, Sinestro intensifies the energy output as his entire body glows bright green as he plummets between the yellow trees. Seeing he's close to the ground, Sinestro dissolves the beam, drops several feet through the air and hits yellow dirt mound, rolling down the yellow covered hill before stop amidst a thick yellow cloud of dander and kicked-up dust.

Out of breath and sore, Sinestro remains on his stomach, trying to catch his breath as a foul, putrid stench fills his nose with every breath. His body throbbed almost all at once, more than it should. Something happened, his ring protected him from the ships explosion but still, his body remains wracked with pain.

Groaning in pain, Sinestro rolls onto his back, staring up at the yellow sky. The yellow blasts that hit him were abnormally painful. He had been hit before by laser fire, torpedo fire, even Cruiser Class J ships but nothing hurt like this. The pain burned more than anything, and lingered longer than unwanted company. More concerning, was the thought of something breaking through his construct.

He 'willed' his defenses! His will was strong, but clearly Whatever this was, 'the yellow' had a powerful reach.

Drawing a deep breath, Sinestro attempts to sit up. Pain greets him once more with every move he makes. Taking his time, Sinestro rises onto his feet. Trying to steady himself, Sinestro pinches the bridge of his sharp nose, trying to refocus his mind on the moment, not on the past, no matter how soon it was - he had to rely on his training.

Rules one for crash landings, Take a Self Assessment Outstretching his arm, Sinestro rolls back his partial green sleeve. Grimacing in discomfort, Sinestro sees glimpses at his pink skin now riddled with dark purplish bruises from the attack. Rolling it back down, Sinestro refuses to look any further, he knew he was hurt, but he could move that's all that mattered.

Now the next rule, survey your location. However, the sense of doom Sinestro tries to flee from at seeing his injuries, finds him again as he looks at the once lush forest planet.

"Oh Wonderful." Sinestro mumbles,

“Ring, Give me Planetary Status Report.” Sinestro orders, grinding his teeth in pain as he stretches out his arms, getting ready to travel.

"Currently Status: Planet Okaara...Vega System...Population Record 29 Billion....Latest Census,One Hundred thirty…buffering…One Hundred Twenty Seven…buffering..."

Suddenly Sinestro looks skyward at the sound of twisting metal exploding through the sky and streaking overhead like meteors.

"Alight Abin where are you and what have you gotten me into this time." Sinestro sighs.

All of the Lantern Corp has been called to a Priority One Mission. An unknown entity code name: The Yellow Imperfection has escaped its constraints thanks to Larfleeze the Raider. Ganthet and the entire Green Lantern Corps were dispatched to deal with the crisis - and now, they have all but disappeared. Except for two. Legendary Green Lantern Abin Sur and his pupil Sinestro are the last to arrive via Abin's spacecraft. Upon entry to the planet, they were attacked by yellow spectrum energy signatures. Crashing to the planet, Sinestro realizes his scenario.

Sinestro is injured.

Abin is missing as well as the corps.

And the once lush green forest planet...

...is yellow.

THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS

The Great Yellow Impurity

Part 4 - When Fear Finds You

THE OUTER RIM - PLANET OKAARA (VEGA SYSTEM)

"Finally water." Sinestro sighs in relief, seeing a lake before him as the forest clears.

It had only been an hour, but the hour felt like days. Larger planets were known to have that effect. Larger the planet, harsher the gravity, longer the time.

Thanks to his own physiology, Sinestro was built to endure hardship. As a Korugarian, it was his pride to be a 'better' species than most. However under the two blazing hot yellow suns, even the strongest Korugarian would be struggling.

Looking at his power ring, Sinestro clenches a fist once more, struggling to muster power as his ring sparks with green electricity. He hand overcharged as his masters insistence. Yet, the environment had an event. Observing the densely wooded area, yellow barked trees, yellow foiliage, yellow dirt, a yellow haze in the air - something was unnatural and dampening his power.

Whatever it was, his objective was simple: Find his master without expending energy within a reasonable time. Then get off this planet.

However at that moment, Sinestro hears a deafening boom from above.

Raising his narrowed eyes to the sky, Sinestro hears the sound of twisting metal before seeing among the hazy yellow clouds, the fiery glow of a ship barreling down towards him. Quickly Sinestro bolts for the yellow tainted lake in front of him. Leaping forward, Sinestro dives in, as a twisted metal explodes on the ground with fiery plumes flowing over the surface of the yellow water. Holding his breath in the murky waters, Sinestro swimming underwater as far as he can so as not to get caught in the super hot blaze that now warms the water.

Able to hold his breath longer than the average humanoid, Sinestro waits for the black smoke to clear on the surface of the waters. Seeing all the smoke dissipate, Sinestro gets ready to rise to the surface but sees something from the corner of his eye and momentarily peers down to the bottom of the yellow tinted lake water’s floor bed. Sinestro muffled scream and bubbles emitting from his mouth do nothing to obscure the sight of thousands of dead sea-life rising at him to the surface of the water.

Rocketing out the waters like a green missile, Sinestro blasts out the water, streaking high into the air before landing on the yellow yellow powdery bank of the lake with a thud, gasping for air.

"What in Hala's name was that!” Sinestro pants, wiping the yellow water off his face as he turns onto his back and sees dead animal carcasses rising up to surface of the translucent yellow waters while the ships wing burns on the ground across the lake.

Spitting out the bitter yellow water in his mouth, Sinestro wipes his face, feeling the drops starting to burn his skin. Clenching his fist as his green ring crackles with energy, Sinestro mind starts to race. He had to get out of here, he had to find help, he needed his master, he couldn't do this alone he...

"NO!" Sinestro snaps, cursing himself at his running thoughts.

No, he couldn't think like this, he had to remain disciplined. He had to remain focused, tactical, collected and if need be, ruthless if he was going to survive. He was a Green Lantern. The ULTIMATE Green Lantern if he dare say so himself and no planet reeking of death and rot was gonna get the better of him.

Taking a deep breath, Sinestro calms his nerves, narrows his blue eyes and begins to look around, "Ring..." Sinestro declares, "...what information do we have of Planet Okaara."

"Planet Okaara..." speaks the ring.

"A forest planet. Every Eight Moon cycles, Planet Okaara remains in darkness while the last two provide copious sunlight and extended daytime hours by 97 percent. Gravitational Pull is stronger than most planets, hence, two hours spent on Planet Okaara equates to an additional hour of time according to Oa's time circumference. However, something has tainted or altered the planets time cycle. Nothing is as it should be."

Lowering his ring, Sinestro lets out a growl. Something wasn't right. Something was larger was at play here that altered an entire planet after Larfleeze reported landed on the planet. Sinestro’s blue eyes notices at the lake’s edge by his foot, the yellow water, literally climbing over its bank and reaching out to his foot until his ring projects a shield around him.

LEVEL 10 WARNING...Multiple Symbiotic Hosts Detected...Lethal Force authorized...Bogies 5 Miles away and closing. alerts his ring. Warns the ring.

Sinestro raises his ring to his mouth, "Abin do you come in! Ive been trying to reach you for an hour!" he snaps, looking around tall forest trees as smoke rising in the yellow sky, "If you're alive SAY something!"

For a moment, Sinestro looks around the vicinity, seeing they sky has turned the same yellow as the trees and the bark and the waters while the distinct smell of rotten fish in the air becomes more pungent.

Suddenly, Sinestro hears an odd sound coming deep from within the forest trees. Sinestro looks around, hearing the sound become louder and louder until his peripheral vision focuses on the bright neon yellow light zipping through the trees and right to him.

The attackers from before, they found him, best send a last distress call while the opportunity is still here.

"RING ACTIVATE HOMING BEACON!" Sinestro shouts.

Beacon Activated

Quickly Sinestro erects a green shield construct, ricocheting the blast into a tree, but as his feet slide on the wet yellow mud from its impact, Sinestro’s sensitive ears twitch at the sound of another rapid yellow beam rocketing at him from behind. Turning around on his heels Sinestro tries to deflect it but is blasted onto his shoulder by the yellow laser beam.

Staggering aback and losing his footing, Sinestro grinds his teeth from the searing burning pain and force of the hit.

"C'mon sinestro get your HEAD in IT!" he mumbles to himself.

Grinding in his teeth, Sinestro hears it again, the high pitch noise traveling at a faster from behind to his left before catching sight of the bright blast zipping across the lake on his far right. Locking onto ti, Sinestro turns on his heels and erects a shield in front of him as now suddenly three yellow energy beams slam onto his shield.

Gritting his teeth as the glow of the yellow energy beams reflect on his pink sweaty face, Sinestro digs his heels into the yellow muddy ground, struggling to hold his ground as the force of the beams make his feet slide. His strained arm begins to ache as sweat pours down his face while anxiety starts to set in. Fear starts to plague his mind as he feels himself growing weak. He required his Master's assistance but he was alone. HE died alone, now he will die here too. With no one to help him, unknown, unaided and a waste of talent. He would die as…

Standing in front of Sinetro, Abin, places his large rosy pink hand on his shoulder and looks down at his pupil, "Than you should have no problems, you are, a true green lantern and a friend.." he retorts,."

Sinestro’s eyes burst with bright green light as his master’s words reverberate through his mind as he takes takes a firm step forward while thrusting his arm forward, "FEEEL MY LIIIIIIIIIIGHT!!!!" he shouts determinedly while shooting a green burst of energy that travels through the yellow beams into the forest and explodes the wielders at their three separate locations at once with green energy waves emitting deep within the forest.

Sinestro stands with his arm outstretched as green smoke lifts from his ring.

His green eyes sharp and attentive, Sinestro eyes dilate at the sight something moving within the dense yellow forest towards him.

"C'MOOOON!!!" roars Sinestro, erecting two massive glowing cannons beside himself, "I'M RIGHT HERE YOU COWAAAAAAAARDS!"he screams, unleashing powerful green rapid fire blasts into the thick yellow tree forest.

Cutting down the yellow trees and shrubbery the creature uses for cover, Sinestro's lit green eyes suddenly spot the swift moving creature bolt out the forest. Swiftly it, zig-zags his blasts, dodging his attacks with such speed the creature easily skims over the yellow water to Sinestro, bashing him across the face with its long thick tendril arm!

Immediately, Sinestro's launched clear off his feet. Streaking back head first, Sinestro hits the yellow forest ground hard, sent skidding on his back. Coming to a stop, Sinestro shakes his head while rubbing his bruised pink jaw but sees a shadow form around him and looks up. Promptly Sinestro dives away as the creature’s heavy tendril slams into the ground where he laid.

Rolling away, Sinestro angrily swipes his arm across the air with his power ring ablaze!

"RAAAAAAAAA" Sinestro yells, slicing off the tendril as the creatures high-pitch cry echoes through the yellow forest, causing Sinestro to cover his ears from its deafening cry.

Seeing the thick yellowish tendril squirming on the ground beside him with its tooth-like horns under its suction cups, Sinestro focuses to the large strange starfish like creature splash out the water and unleash an ear-piercing shriek before bolting at him at great speed.

Snarling, Sinestro hops onto his feet and runs towards the incoming creature and immediately thrusts his arm forward, impaling the creature on a giant green sword construct via his ring. Ruthlessly, Sinestro glares at the squirming creature cough out pink liquid on his green bladed construct while its squirming in agony. Wasting no time, Sinestro swings the creature around before hurling it into the sky with all his might, aims his ring at the airborne creature and shoots a green blast, exploding it out the yellow sky.

Glancing over his shoulder, Sinestro eyes zero into the forest, scanning for anything coming out from the cluttered trees.

“SCAN THE SYMBIOTIC HOSTS and tell me WHAT I’M FIGHTING HERE!” Sinestro orders his ring while hearing the rustling of various assailants coming at him from all sides.

Scan Complete. Symbiotic Hosts are Former Green Lantern Corp Officers infected with the Parallax Virus ....alerts his ring

Sinestro looks at his ring, puzzled, "What's a parallax!"

"Classified."

Before Sinestro can finish mumbling what's under his breath, he quickly catches sight of four former Green Lantern Corp officers leap out from the dense yellow forest like swift moving animals. Sinestro’s lit green eyes open wide in shock as he recognizes the faces of his comrades, now all with palm veiny yellow skin, unusually narrow sharp teeth that seem to fill their mouths, and blacked out eyes that look upon him with eerie evilness.

“HEY Sinestro!”

Sinestro turns around, spotting the former Lantern known as Ch'p, raccoonlike creature stand on his two feet, now sporting yellow fur, glare at him few feet away.

“Came to join us?”

Sinestro looks over his shoulder to Zaneth, the once blue scaled four eyed alien with now pale yellow skin and pale eyes narrowing his eyes at him. Zaneth was slow moving, although at an intimidating 12 feet tall, each of his hands were large enough to crush his skull.

“Don’t make us have to fight you Sinestro.” smiles the J’zon, the young Daxamite whose human-like appearance was now changed by his veiny pale yellow skin, pointy blond hair and white eyes.

His smile was full of sharp teeth and a slimy black tongue in his now wider mouth. He was the harder one to beat. Daxamites, knock-off Kryptonians with more arrogance but greater aptitude for using 'special' abilities, he was the greater threat out the group. He had to be careful. If he demonstrated too many feats with his ring he could duplicate it twice as fast. This has to be quick.

Sinestro looks at his former friends surrounding him. Infected. Hostile. Their green lantern suits all torn off from their waists up as a glowing, vibrant yellow lantern emblem shines in the middle of their chest as bright as the yellow rings on their fingers. Four to one. He’d have to make due until he found Abin, he couldn’t wait any more.

"LISTEN TO ME!" Sinestro calls out to them, but they just smile like savage animals looking at a carcass, “YOU ALL NEED HELP..." Sinestro shouts, hoping to reason with them “…NOW WE CAN FIX THIS! JUST..."

Suddenly, Sinestro notices a flickering bright light in the sky and looks up to see another lantern, a fifth one.

'Five to One.' he thinks.

"Always be aware of your surroundings." Sinestro grumbles to himself as the fifth infected lantern above fires a powerful energy beam towards him as do the rest.

Diving forward as the ground explodes behind him as everyone’s attack.

Sinestro wastes no time and swings back around, swiping his fist in sweeping motion as his ring forms a long sharp sword that slices through Ch’rp in mid-air before Sinestro skids to a stop, but dives away from another a blast attack from above.

Now 4 against one, he had to take care of the one above.

Hopping to his feet, Sinestro sees Zaneth already pulling his massive fist back to punch him but seeing in his peripheral, the Daxamite skidding behind him with his ring aimed to blast him from behind. Quickly Sinestro drops to the ground as the Daxamite’s blast zips over him and hits Zaneth in chest, exploding him into yellow ash.

Sinestro rolls over and unleashes a powerful green blast at the lantern high above, knocking him out the sky to the ground.

Scrambling to his feet, Sinestro looks up to already see the Daxamite swinging his leg and bash Sinestro across the in the face with his foot! Hitting the powdery yellow ground and rolls away, Sinestro rolls onto his stomach but hold his head in a daze as the Daxamite watches Sinestro with glee.

"Do feel it yet?"

Looking up at the Daxamite, Sinestro watches him march towards him with his crackling yellow ring on his finger, "DO YOU FEEEL THAT BOTTOMLESS PIT IN YOUR STOMACH SINESTRO!" he roars, opening his mouth and exposing his blacken tongue and sharp teeth, “DO YOU FEEL THE FEAR?! DO YOU? ITS OVER SINESTRO!”

Sinestro, turns over onto his back and forms two green cannons, “NOT FOR ME!” he shouts, opening fire on the Daxamite who quickly bolts high up into the yellow sky with a flurry of green blast exploding around him, "I HAVE NO FEAAAAAAAAAR!" Sinestro shouts, forming two more massive cannon firing constructs behind his head as the agile Daxamite zips through the sky amidst the blasts like flyby plane over a battleship.

“C’MOOOON!” Sinestro shouts as the Daximite suddenly dive-bombs towards Sinestro at great speed, whizzing by all the green shots exploding around him before swooping low to the yellow dusty ground, bolts past two more blasts and rams right into the Sinestro chest! Smashing through his green constructs both roll on the yellow muddy ground before the Daxamite pins Sinestro down by the back his neck and opens its wide mouth, biting down on Sinestro's head!

“EYEAAAAAAAAAAAAAH”! Sinestro screams in agony as the Daxamite gnaws on his pink skull.

“AH!!!” the Daxamite smiles contently, wiping the green blood from his mouth as Sinestro drops dead to ground, “TASTY!” he snickers.

However at that moment, the Daxamite stands up in confusion as Sinestro's body dissolves into green dust.

With a growl the Daxamite turns around to see Sinestro standing behind him with his fist and cracking Green Lantern ring shining right at his face. Sinestro's wipes the dark pink blood from his nose and narrows his green lit eyes, "All energy constructs bleed green." he spits.

The Daxaminte snarls before lunging at him but Sinestro unleashes a powerful green blast, incinerating the Daxamite within the pale green light-beam until nothing but yellow ash rising into the yellow sky. Ceasing his attack, Sinestro sees an odd yellow ring drops to the ground, smoldering with green smoke. Curious Sinestro glares at the glowing yellow ring on the yellow muddy ground sprout eight needle-like legs and crawl away into the forest.

Seeing the rest of the corpses bodies around him lying still with smoke rising off their bodies, Sinestro raises his crackling ring overhead and blasts off the ground, tearing through the sky at great speed.

"COME IN ABIN SUR COME IN!!!" he yells into his ring, but hears no response.

"Ring do you have ANY energy signature coming from Abin Sur's Ring or a Ganthet! I can't stay here!" he yells into the ring.

Scanning…....Located-Loading Coordinates...Travel 24 Longitude...90 Latitude and bear right into Field Clearing.

Suddenly a yellow blast zips by his face Sinestro’s fast, causing him to swerve as dozens of yellow energy beams fire past him.

Sinestro looks over his shoulder and sees a horde of at least 10 figures, glowing bright yellow, zooming after him as they sky seems to only glow brighter yellow.

“Ring identify!”

Identities Confirmed. Former Lantern Corps of Sectors 251, 100 and Sector 5....Three Green Lantern User’s Remain on the Planet Surfaces.

"THREE!! THAT MEANS THE REST ARE DEAD!!" yells Sinestro in shock.

All Former Users are Currently Hosts to the Parallax Virus...Searching for Entity Locatoin

"WHAT THE HECK IS A PARALLAX!?!" Sinestro yells in frustration, streaking away as he’s pursued.

Information Restricted...Requires Guardians Access Key.

In a hail of curses and profanity, Sinestro streaks across the yellow sky, trying his best to put distance between him and his pursuers as he makes his way for area he believes Abin to be in. Frustrated and determined, Sinestro picks up more and more speed, exploding through the air with deafening noise as he breaks through the sound barrier as yellow trees and yellow tinted waters pass underneath him in a blur.

“Can you locate Arin Sur? CAN YOU LOCATE HER!”

Yellow energy interference too high for scan…deducing filtering aids…none found. New Objective, Eliminate Yellow Energy Source…. Scanning for Yellow Energy Source…buffering…buffering…

As thoughts of Arin Sur, his Mentor's sister and his fiance flood his mind. He hadn't seen her in four days and planned on seeing her in secret only an hour ago before this situation happened. Now, the dream of losing her and the bright glowing yellow women sent a fear into him he had never experienced before, but refused to give into.

Hearing nothing but howling wind behind him, and seeing no other pursers behind, Sinestro clenches his jaw as pit of fear swells in his stomach.

"This isn't good." he mumbles as he flies over the yellow trees, but quickly notices rising black smoke and burning trees. “Abin’s SHIP!” he exclaims, spotting the devastating trail of burning yellow trees and debris.

Sinestro’s eyes follow the epic devastating trail of Abin’s ship wrecked in the forest area, but he spots the other half of the ship burning from leaking fuel that pours out the main hull some distance away. Seeing no on in the first site, Sinestro heads to the other some yards away, descending to the yellow ground in the middle of the thick forest.

"Abin no…” He mumbles, worried his Mentor and ultimately his only friend is stuck inside the other half of the burning ship, left to die a torturous death by fire.

Dropping out the sky, Sinestro runs to the ship but skids to a stop as a yellow blast grazes his temple, twirling Sinestro to the ground in a cry of pain.

Clutching the side of his temple Sinestro quickly sees three more yellow energy blasts hurtling to him and dives away as the ground explodes behind him and shoots out green blast to the figure in the yellow forest bolts after him.

Getting on to his feet, the swift and thin framed figure tackles Sinestro back to the ground, rolling with him in the yellow dirt until Sinestro feels the creature turn him over with superior strength, firmly pin him to the ground by holding his head into the dirt and quickly position itself on his back.

“AAAh….” Growls the creature, running its slender sharp fingers along his spine to the base of Sinestro’s neck, “oooh baby this is gonna be fun…”

"GET OFF ME!" Sinestro barks, forming a green energy hand construct that grabs the creature by its thick hair and flings it off his back.

Rolling onto his back and hopping to his feet, Sinestro stands his ground but sees a bright yellow light careening to him.

“RAAAAAAAAAH”! Sinestro angrily shouts, slamming his fist through the yellow blast as it shatters into bright yellow shards around him! His crackling green arm already extended, Sinestro's pulsating green eyes crackle with green energy and lock onto to the figure as the yellow midst clears. However, as soon as Sinestro sees his target clearly, his green eyes open wide and return to his natural blue color, “Arin?” he says in disbelief.

Standing only feet away from him in her tattered green lantern suit, her once rosy skin now pale yellow, her blue eyes now golden and clear, her short blue hair now long and blond, Arin Sur, stands before him with a toothy smirk as yellow snow falls from the sky.

"Aah-arin..." Sinestro says again, unable to believe the sight of his shapely fiancé, "Wha-what happened to you?"

Arin smiles at him, fluttering her yellow eyelashes at him flirtatiously, "Nothing my darling." she smiles, twirling in place before raising up her hand to him, “See, you have nothing to fear.” She says, drawing his attention to the yellow ring on her finger.

All of the Lantern Corp have been called to a Priority One Mission. An unknown entity code name: The Yellow Imperfection has escaped its constraints thanks to Larfleeze the Raider. Ganthet and the entire Green Lantern Corps were dispatched to deal with the crisis - and now, they have all but disappeared. Except for two. Legendary Green Lantern Abin Sur and his pupil Sinestro are the last to arrive via Abin's spacecraft. Upon entry to the planet, they were attacked by yellow spectrum energy signatures. Crashing to the planet, Sinestro realizes his scenario, many Green Lanterns have been infected with the Yellow Impurity. Sinestro is injured. Abin is missing as well as the corps.

And one this once lush green forest planet...

...his Fiance, Arin Sur has survived - with a yellow ring.

"Ring analyze what's wrong with her!" Sinestro says.

"Darling I told you, i'm fine." replies Arin Sur.

Sinestro clenches his jaw as tears fill his eyes, "Listen to me..." he begs, "...there is something wrong with this planet. We have to go. Take off the ring Arin..."

"ARIN IS DEAD!" snaps Arin, her voice blood curdling startling Sinestro, "I AM NOT ARIN!” she adamantly states.

Analysis Error. Rescanning, Source Found. Arin Sur is the Yellow Impurity.

Sinestro gulps hearing the rings assessment while seeing the veins in her face raise up under her skin momentarily as her eyes dilate like a cats before returning back to its pleasant appearance as she calms herself, “I take offense to the word 'impurity'. Its more like an 'improvement'.” she smiles

Sinestro shakes his head, "Arin, my darling, LISTEN to me! Whatever this is you have to fight it."

"No I don't. I'm fine, you will be too if you experience what I have." she refutes.

"ARIN SUR LISTEN TO ME!" Sinestro shouts, "YOU ARE THE SISTER OF THE LEGENDARY ABIN SUR! GREEN LANTERN OF SECTOR..."

Growing agitated, Arin Sur eyes glow bright yellow and covers her ears, "Why do you keep saying these things!"

"WE MET ON THANAGAR!" Sinestro continues, "In the Heather Fields of..."

"Shut up!" she growls.

"Being a Green Lantern is all you've ever want to..."

"I SAID SHUT UP!" Arin shouts, causing the ground to thud with power and shake the trees, stunning Sinestro.

Glaring at him with lit hollow yellow eyes, Arin Sur points at him, “I am NOT a Green Lantern! And I am NOT that WEAK female you once knew. That weak female who disgustingly cried for you to help her on this planet. The weak female who was so confident that her comrades would save her, THAT YOU would save her - IS GONE! All that found her was fear, and fear is here to STAY!" he roars.

Tears flood Sinestro eyes as he extends his hand to her, "Arin, I'm sorry I couldn't..."

"Couldn't what?!!” Arin interrupts, "Couldn't save me?! There's nothing to save Sinestro! I AM FINE! I am BETTER!"

"...you need MEDICAL ATTENTION! This Yellow Impurity has infected you and you're not the same.."

"YOU..." Arin points as the ground trembles and yellow dander rises off the ground her "...ARE THE ONE THATS SICK, SINESTRO! SICK with the ideals the WILL and the bidding's of those Guardians have the right and POWER in the Galaxy! YOU KNOW WHO THEY ARE AND WHAT THEY'VE DONE?! WHAT THEY DID TO ME?!” she shouts.

Sinestro looks at her oddly confused at Arin’s statement.

“They bound me! Confined me! For what?!?" Arin asks, "For enhancing the emotion the drives living creatures for survival, for making other 'FEEL' something! Guardians. BLIND GUIDES AND SCARED LIL TROLLS ARE THAT FEAR WHAT THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND! Thats all they are! And you! Sick green puppets of will meant to be a buffer between THEM AND ME!! Your pawns! ALL OF YOU!"

Sinestro face turns serious, catching sight of mysterious shadows lingering in the trees before settling his eyes on her, “You..." Sinestro hesitates, "...what have you done to Arin…”

“I AM HER!” Arin snickers with her sharp teeth, “I AM ARIN! I AM YOU! I AM WHAT WE ALL ARE....FEAR!!! I AM WHAT THE GUARDIANS CANNOT CONTROL! I AM THE MOST POWERFUL SECRET EVER KEPT…”

Sinesto gulps as Arin’s eyes turn golden yellow and dilate in her eyes as her teeth sharpen like needles, “And its time everyone KNOWS IT." she growls.

"ARIN..." Sinestro plead, "I KNOW YOU'RE IN THERE. I KNOW I WAS TOO LATE THE SAVE YOU...."

"I am more than that WEAK WOMAN YOU CALL!" Arin screams.

"You weere NEVER weak Arin, you are my soulmate!!" Sinestro pleads.

Arin covers her ears once more, shrieking in pain "ARIN CANNOT HEAR YOU!"

"DON'T MAKE ME HURT YOU, I LOVE YOU ARIN FIGHT THIS AND END THIS MADNESS!" Sinestro repeats adamantly.

"I LOVE NO ONE!!" Arin snarls.

"YOU LOVE ME!”

"SHUT UP!" Arin yells, covering her ears, "I DO NOT LOVE…”

"Do you remember how we BOTH planned to NOT even STAY WITH THE CORPS!” Sinestro shouts, watching Arin drop to her knees, crying and shaking her head as the yellow ring on her finger crackles and sparks, “It was going to be you and I Arin! Remember? Don't you remember we promised each other! That was no more than a WEEK AGO! We were gonna quit..."

"Stop it!"

"...go to Sector 103..."

"Stop it!!!"

"WE WERE GOING TO MARRY!"

"I SAID STOP IIIIIIITTTT!!!!" Arin shrieks as her voice echoes through entire forest as ground around her trembles while a sweeping wind gusts through the area. Sinestro stands there, stunned as Arin glares at him, her eyes blacked out, her sharp teeth baring as six more arm sprouting out her back!

“Oh my word…” Sinestro gasps, stepping away from her.

Alert Level Priority. Classified Entity Parallax, Detected...Confirmed. Host, Arin Sur.

Sinestro's ring's voice lingers in his ears as he looks at Arin’s six other arms lift her onto her feet and absorb into her back. Astonished as a chill runs up his spine, he gazes at her cold eyes and pink face that mirrors no emotion or tenderness. Silence fills the air they both stand there with the yellow glow all around her emitting more and more as the yellow snow falls on her.

Only guilt and heartbreak fills his heart and weighs like a stone as he watches her stand there become the very thing they've fought for so long, "Oh no Arin no.." he mumbles as tears come to his eyes.

"Why do you weep?" Parallax spits, "It is a privilege to be Host to me, to have REAL power. She's at peace now." Parallax smiles, "You can be too and know a power you never could have imagined. Why do you think the guardians have hidden me away, its not because i'm weak!"

"I can't do that." replies Sinestro with a slight crack in his voice, "I won't."

Parallax narrows her eyes, "Only once did another refuse me, i made sure that race of kryptonians didn't survive either, you think you'll fair any better."

Sinestro narrows his eyes, "We're done speaking..." he says, looking at Arin up and down, "...Arin, I know you're in there...fight this please."

Parallax smiles, "Maybe I chose the wrong host." she smiles, "I sense a great amount of fear in you. Maybe you're a better suitor."

"You'll find i'm quite indigestible." Sinestro replies.

Nodding at his statement, Parallax smiles a toothy grin, "We'll see.". Suddenly her eyes turn bright yellow, "TAKE HIM!"

Suddenly Sinestro notices from his peripheral vision dozens of other former Green Lanterns, now shirtless with bright yellow lantern emblems glowing in the center of chests, emerge from the dense yellow forest as yellow snow falls from up high.

Sinestro looks at Arin smiling at him with sharp teeth and glowing eyes, "ARIN FIGHT THIS, FIGHT IT NOW..."

"ITS PARALLAX AND ARIN CAN'T HEAR YOU!" Arin snaps, raising up her hands as to Sinestro's horrible terror, he see hundreds of former green lanterns rise up from the dense yellow forest into the yellow sky. All of the former green Latnerns, now exuding glowing yellow emblem on their bare chests, ascend high into yellow sky as the temperature plummets.

Sinestro’s eyes open wide with fear as Arin tilts her head at him with glowing yellow eyes, "ARIN SUR IS DEAD SINESTRO! SHE DIED WITH THE OTHER THREE HUNDRED PLUS CORPS ON THIS DAY! MARK IT! THE FALL OF THE LANTERNS! THE DAY THE YELLOW IMPURITY COULD NOT BE CONTAINED! THE DAY THAT PARALLAX SWALLOWED THE UNIVERSE INTO FEAR! YOU AND NO ONE ELSE WILL EVER STOP IT OR US AGAIN! I AM PARALLAX! And PARAAAAAAAAAH!” Arin screams, grabbing her head as before dropping to her knees.

As if the minutes slowed and the seconds stopped, Arin thrashes back and forth, clutching her head in pain and looks at Sinestro unsure what to do as her yellow eyes fade back to their normal clear blue color and well up with tears as her yellow skin returns back to its rosy hue.

Reaching out to him, Arin looks at Sinestro frozen in place as tears stream down her face, "SINESTRO!” she cries out in pain, “I...love youAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH..." she shrills in agony.

Suddenly a giant parasitic like mosquito-creature bursts out Arin’s back. Ascending into the yellow sky like a dragon, the yellow insect turns back to Arin's body and fans out its fifty foot insect wings and swings it sharp leg, impaling Arin Sur on its yellow sharp tendril!!!

“NOOOOOOOO!!!!" Sinestro screams as the parasite alien creature lifts Arin's off the yellow dirt, opens its enormous mouth and drops Arin’s body into its black mouth as all the other lanterns, now under Parallax control, all open fire at once one Sinestro.

“AAAAAAAAAARRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!” Sinestro screams as his ring suddenly erects a shield round as Parallax dives towards Sinestro with open claws, ready to devour him!

Suddenly a green energy beam explodes through the face of the Parallax Parasite as bloodied Abin Sur bursts through, grabs Sinestro by the back of his shirt color and bolts into the sky with him.

"HANG ON BOY! HANG ON!!" Abin shouts as Sinestro looks up at him with the guardian known as Ganthet, passed out on his back.

Looking below with the forest fading far behind them as Abin blazes across the planet, Sinestro covers his eyes as bright yellow explosion erupts in the horizon.

Awakened by the noise, Ganthet, on Abin’s broad back, looks up at the bright yellow sky darkening on the horizon as hundreds of former Green Lantern under Parallax control fill rise sky as a blinding yellow star rises over them, “Parallax has risen!”

MEANWHILE ON PLANET OA - HOME OF THE GREEN LANTERNS

Floating in a vortex of swirling green light, 9 members of the Guardians of the Universe look down the vortex of green light as the reflection of Planet Okaara, in the Vega System appears as a green hologram. The guardians collectively gasp at the sight of the once dark and lush green forest planet slowly displays a change of color. From the foliage, seas, minerals and atmosphere, a yellow color spreads from the west of the Planet to the east.

Appa Ali Apsa, the most senior Guardian of the blue skinned alien race, points downward to with his frail blue finger, "Unleashed is the Parallax.”

“It was a risk we calculated. We are now facing the death of the entire Green Lanterns Corp." Replies another guardian.

"Death is nothing but an opportunity to prove use of will power...if some die, than they were not worthy of their will." says Scar, one of the older female guardians as she stands on white pillar inside the green vortex of light.

With a raised eyebrow, Sayd, another female guardian, looks at her with disdain, "Am I to conclude that you believe in allowing death to be an overall sign of weakness for us as well? Or losing a fight against Death worse?” she asks.

“Mind your words, you know nothing of what you said in your foolishness." she contests.

A much taller, blue skinned guardian with a dark blue braid tied behind his back, floats amongst them, "We must focus on the task at hand. In the end, there are many secrets of the universe, to simply perceive that the death of more than 25,000 individuals, including our own Lanterns are the will of the universe...is theoretic at best."

"Well said Kronos." says Lianna, a new member to the Guardians.

"Being so." Appa Ali Apsa says, looking at the rest of the four silent guardians, "We must determine the approximate solution to this catastrophe. If we allow the Parallax Entity to leave Planet Okaara, we will be the direct cause of a disturbance in the galaxy."

"It will not be as if we have not done so before." Scar interjects, floating behind him with her irises reflecting only the shapes of the lantern symbol.

Lianna looks at her, "To balance the universe in its terms of realization and progression for better is so our purpose...not potential destruction of it. Releasing the Parallax entity endangers every life-form in the galaxy."

"Agreed." Sayd exclaims, "We must act now...even if it is as the cost of one of us."

"But Ganthet is there..." Lianna says but Kronos cuts her off.

"He understood the calculated risk, despite our protests." Kronos coldly replies as he narrows his eyes at her surprised expression.

Appa Ali Apsa raises his hand weakly as he floats within the green vortex of light and forms a bright blue orb, "I move to declare the 'Order of 6'." he says.

Lianna eyes open wide, "This is not the time for rash decisions."

"I second it." Sayd exclaims, staring down at the image of the planet with sorrow.

Lianna turns to her, "Not you also." she gasps in surprise as she turns to Kronos with hope, "You do not believe in this do you? 'Order of 6 was reserved for..."

"Moments like this." Appa Ali Apsa interjects, who stares at the other silent Guardians floating behind him, nodding in agreement.

"FOR UNIVERSAL DANGER!" Lianna protests.

"As now." Appa says in a very cold voice, staring at her as if he could stare through her while she floats above the imagery of the planet Okaara.

Lianna looks at Kronos, "I am only a new Guardian, my voice is as grand as my finger in this universe, yet Kronos, your voice holds weight with us Guardians. Tell them please, that this is a mistake. You are one of reason and none of selfishness, please...I beg of you, tell them this is not the path. I implore you. " she begs.

Kronos firms his face, "Our universe holds the key, I believe, to more origins and secrets to the universe. More than we know now. Despite the fact that it is legend finding such secrets will destroy us if we are aware. Part of those secrets are Parallax itself. Parallax being a powerful virus that we ourselves confined to that planet as it at one time, almost destroyed us. Being the case I... or should I say we cannot allow one entity to jeopardize this universe and our existence because of the bond we have with those who are tragically caught within the paths of morality. With a pained heart…." he says as Lianna's eyes open wide with horror, “I do endorse and finalize using Order of 6, immediately.”
