You have the ability to instill great fear. Welcome to the Sinestro Corps.
~ A Yellow Lantern Power Ring greets its new user.

The Yellow Lantern Power Rings are the signature weapons of the Sinestro Corps and an item featured in the DC universe.


While Sinestro was a Green Lantern, he used his Green Lantern Power Ring to conquer his home world of Korugar. The Guardians of the Universe discovered Sinestro's treachery, they expelled him from the Green Lantern Corps and banished him to the planet Qward in the Antimatter Universe. On the planet, Sinestro met the Weaponers of Qward, and told them a Green Lantern's Power Ring can't affect anything that's yellow. The Weaponers of Qward had a long hatred of the Guardians and for several millennia have been trying to make a weapon similar to the power rings. They created the Yellow Power Ring, designed to project yellow energy and take advantage of the Green Lanterns weakness.

Sinestro was able to use his ring, which used fear as a power source. The ring feeds off the fear of others and allows the wearer produce it into the victim's mind, making the Yellow Lantern powerful.
