The villain Traitor was once a fear and respected warrior on his homeworld. After enduring the pain of being grafted to an advanced suit of armor, Traitor went mad and killed his own people. He then set his sights on universal genocide.
The Green Lantern of Space Sector 2814, Starkaor, battled Traitor and sustained grave injuries. Seeking out a successor, his ring located Abin Sur of Ungara.
Some time later Abin was in pursuit of his predecessor murderer and tracked Traitor to Earth, during the wild west period in 1882. There he disguised himself as an "Injun" and teamed up with Marshall Jordan to locate Traitor and the group of bounty hunters he had joined forces with.
