# 5 Bleez

Bleez was one of the many people kidnapped and tortured during the Sinestro Corps Wars. When Atrocitus released Red Lantern Rings into the universe, she was one of many chosen for her great rage.

She's just awesome. Her back-story was saddening, and explains why she is full of rage. I honestly wish she had more pants on haha, but I have enjoyed reading about her character and seeing her grow. "With blood and rage of crimson red, Ripped from a corpse so freshly dead, Together with our hellish hate, We'll burn you all--That is your fate!"

#4 Hector Hammond

Hector Hammond is a petty thief who finds a meteor fragment, the same one which super-evolved Gorilla Grodd, and gains imense mind controlling powers and a genius-level intellect from it.

Hector has made a few appearance in the comics lately, during the color corps run he was able to steal the orange lantern from Larfleeze and eventually took control of the Light Entity, Ophidian The Tempter, the Orange Lantern's version of Parallax. I thought this run was pretty cool. He even recently took on Superman and did a decent job, I look forward to seeing more from him.

#3 Black Hand

Black Hand is a criminal genius who invented a device that siphons off the Green Light of Will Power from Green Lanterns. After receiving visions, Black Hand returns t his house and kills his entire family, then killing himself. Black Hand was then chosen by the Guardian Scar to be the leader of the Black Lanterns, and now he is able to control the dead and resurrect fallen heroes.

If it weren't for Black Hand we never would have had the Blackest Night. He is a very deranged mad man, creepy and dark. I loved following a villain I had not heard about and watch him become more than just a guy that steals green energy. "The Blackest Night falls from the skies, The darkness grows as all light dies, We crave your hearts and your demise, By my black hand — The dead shall rise!"

#2 Dex-Starr

Dex-Starr was an earth kitten, adopted and raised by a single woman. He was later chosen to be a Red Lantern and is currently Atrocitus's right hand lantern.

I love cats, I have five of my own, so I was excited to see Dex-Starr. I was curious as how a pet could be chosen by a Lantern Corps. Dex-Starr's origin is quite heartbreaking and the page's can be read here: This made me love poor Dex-Starr even more. He's a good kitty.

#1 Larfleeze

Only weilder of the Orange Light of Avarice, Larfleeze hungers for all. He must own everything, and everything he sees is his. Larfleeze's back-story is shrouded in mystery, and even when he himself tells it, it changes. Five people came to the planet to claim the orange lantern and only Larfleeze was left. Larfleeze is so greedy he even collects people, his ring allows him to turn the essence f whomever he kills into constructs that obey only him.

When Geoff Johns had started introducing all the different Lantern Color Corps, I got excited. My favorite color is orange so I could not wait to see who the orange lanterns would be. And I was not dissapointed, Larfleeze is awesome. So greedy and hillarious, I love seeing him interact with the other lanterns. He even recently had his own title, which should have run longer than it did. We did get to see a handful of Larfleeze's constructs regain their life and turn on him, of course Larfleeze quickly overthrew them. "What's mine is mine, and mine and mine, And mine, and mine, and mine! Not yours!"
