Hello there friends and aliens alike! Tis I, the great and lustrous Durga Syn, here to talk about another of my favorite villains. While no villain compares to Thanos, there are a few who are also up there among my favorites. One of those villains is Sinestro. Not a lot of people are familiar with Sinestro, or at least, not a lot of people really knew who he was until the most recent Green Lantern movie. Well, as it stands, he is probably my favorite DC villain. DC, in my opinion anyway, loses out to Marvel in the villain department. The main reason I was always a fan of Marvel over DC back in the day was the good villains. Still, Sinestro stands out among the DC villains. He is my particular brand of psychopath. So now, I’ll go ahead and give you a rundown of Mr. Sinestro’s past!Sinestro was selected by the Guardians of the Universe to become a member of the Green Lantern Corps for his honor and fearlessness. At his height, he was considered to be the greatest of all the Green Lanterns, and Sector 1417 was almost entirely devoid of crime and lawlessness under his vigilant protection. The Guardians had never erred in their judgment before, and he would later be considered one of their greatest mistakes. His prowess was so great that he was assigned as a mentor to a number of rookie lanterns showing similar promise.. the greatest of which would be his last student Hal Jordan. Ganthet had specifically requested that the two train together. At first, they had issues with each other, butting heads on a lot of the ways things should be done. Sinestro was reminded of himself as a rookie, and quickly came to like Hal and consider him a friend. Throughout his time in the Corps, Abin Sur was Thaal Sinestro’s best friend and trusted confidante, so much so that they considered each other to be brothers. He would eventually fall in love with and marry Arin Sur, his friend’s sister, and the two would have a child together. On their first diplomatic assignment, Hal proved to be reckless and Sinestro believed that he was a waste of his time. Then upon returning to his home planet of Korugar, they were met with very much opposition and Hal discovered that Sinestro forced his planet to worship him and that he had a very strict and unjust set of rules. After being gone so long, Korugar’s citizens rebelled and Sinestro lost control. After a short battle, Hal knocked some sense into Sinestro and he realized that he must hide for the Guardians will punish both of them. After hiding in one of Earth’s prisons with Hal Jordan, Oan manhunters brought him in to Oa and he was tried. After Hal testified against him, Sinestro swore revenge against Hal and the Corps right before he was banished to Qward in the Antimatter Universe. There, he met the Weaponers of Qward, who helped him forge a yellow power ring to counter the Green Lantern Corps. The main reasons I like Sinestro is because he really isn’t that bad of a guy. He just wants order in his little corner of the galaxy, and is willing to do whatever it takes for that order to arise. Sure, he basically rules over them all with an iron fist, but at the same time he wants nothing more than to protect them. What about you readers? Anybody here familiar with Sinestro, and have an opinion on the way he does things? Let me know!
