DC Day: Driven Mad By The Destruction Of Coast City, Green Lantern Hal Jordan Gives Into The Darkness And Becomes The Demonic Entity Named Parallax

GREEN LANTERN OVERWHELMED WITH GRIEF AFTER THE DESTRUCTION OF COAST CITY IS DRIVEN MAD

In ‘Green Lantern’ (1994) #48, Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) is driven mad over the destruction of Coast City and gives into the darkness. In the ‘Reign Of The Supermen’ storyline, Cyborg Superman recruits Mongul I and the help of Warworld, in order to destroy Coast City. Angered at the destruction of Coast City, Green Lantern goes toe to toe with and defeats Mongul I in combat.

After the return of Superman from the dead, Green Lantern is overwhelmed with grief over the destruction of Coast City. He sees the huge crater created by Cyborg Superman megalomaniacial ambitions and remembers the death of Abin Sur who in his dying breaths sent the ring to select him, Hal Jordan, as his replacement. Then, Hal wants to do anything with his ring. Even, yes, recreate Coast City with power ring constructs.

THE ORIGIN OF PARALLAX

Fast forward along the timeline after the destruction of Coast City and Hal Jordan becoming Parallax then bonding to the Spectre. In ‘Green Lantern: Rebirth’ (2005) #3, the demonic insectoid entity named Parallax is coming to Earth. And it is coming to claim Hal Jordan’s soul bonded to the Spectre. As the JLA finds itself with Hal Jordan’s dead body on the Watchtower, Green Lantern Kyle Rayner tells Green Arrow the story of Parallax.

On the tenth planet from the sun Pagallus, Green Lantern was warned of the arrival of Parallax and one of their elders told him Parallax’s origin story: Originally, Parallax was born at the beginning of sentience. It was a demonic monster that infected planets with fear causing entire civilizations to be eradicated by paranoia and violence. Parallax fed on fear while the Guardians of the Universe used willpower to forge the Central Power Battery of Oa and to combat the threat.

In ‘Green Lantern: Rebirth’ (2005) #3, the demonic insectoid entity named Parallax is coming to Earth. AP Photo/DC Comics.

The opposite energies could not destroy each other. So the Guardians imprisoned Parallax “put into a comatose state” on the Central Battery of Oa.1 Over the millennia, Parallax became known as the yellow impurity. That explains why the power ring could initially not work on the color yellow. Kyle added that “only someone able to overcome great fear would master the power ring.”1

Parallax was apparently dead for billions of years. Then, one day, Parallax was weak, hungry and looked through the Central Power Battery AI to reach a power ring of a suitable host with a strong will. It found Hal Jordan. Over the years, it worked subtly to influence Hal, sowing self-doubt and fear. The first signs were the streaks of white hair. And then, the destruction of Coast City warped Parallax’s control over Hal Jordan causing his decimation of the Green Lantern Corps. Until Hal Jordan became… Parallax.

DRIVEN MAD BY PARALLAX’S POSSESSION, GREEN LANTERN DECIMATES THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS

In ‘Green Lantern’ (1994) #48, Hal Jordan’s constructs of Coast City fade because his 24 hour power ring charge has finished. A Guardian of the Universe appears and asks him to come to Oa at once for disciplany action over transgressing a Green Lantern rule: using his power ring for personal gain.

Hal exclaims it is about personal loss and ends up destroying the head of the construct. With a mad grin on his face, Hal intends to go to Oa. What follows in the following issue, is a complete decimation of the Green Lantern Corps by Hal Jordan. Hal’s battles are bloody, vicious and to the death!

GREEN LANTERN BESTS SINESTRO IN MORTAL COMBAT, KILLS THE GUARDIANS OF THE UNIVERSE AND BECOMES… PARALLAX

In ‘Green Lantern’ (1994) #50, Hal Jordan arrives on Oa and grieved over the destruction of Coast City, gives into the darkness. He is greeted by Sinestro who has been freed from the Central Power Battery to battle him as a last line of defense. Hal has stolen the power rings of the Green Lanterns he has killed and agrees to use only one power ring in order to make the fight fair. The fight commences. Both combatants are evenly matched. However, in one final blast, there is an explosion and both combatants’ costumes are tattered.

The fight turns into a fist fight and Hal soon has the upper hand. Finally, Sinestro seems to surrender by saying “Wuh-We’re… Fuh- Finished, all right…”2 At that moment, Hal takes Sinestro into a bear hug and snaps his neck. Then, Hal walks dramatically towards the Central Power Battery. Suddenly, he is punched by Kilowog. However, he responds by incinerating Kilowog with a blast. Then, after an argument over his rampage and the destruction of Coast City with the Guardians, Hal begins to absorb its energy. It is at this time that the Parallax entity is freed and is bonded to Hal’s soul. Parallax emerges and kills all the Guardians of the Universe save Ganthet.

WHO STOLE BRUCE WAYNE’S PARENTS’ COFFINS?

In ‘JLA’ #43, Batman discovers the effects of mad science. Visiting his parents’ graves, Bruce Wayne finds out that their graves are empty and their coffins have been stolen. Faced with such a mystery, let’s wonder on the horrors of mad science.

Batman investigates the mystery and traces the theft to the sub-continent of Asia. The World’s Greatest Detective ends up at the nefarious headquarters of the wealthy and resourceful super-villain Ra’s Al Ghul and the League of Assassins.

RA’S AL GHUL’S PLAN OF WORLD DOMINATION

In ‘JLA’ #43, Ra’s Al Ghul laments species’ extinction over the Earth. He blames it on mankind’s parasitism and its exploitation of the Earth’s natural resources. What he fears are new extinction events on Earth caused by human activity. Whether that justifies his mad science is clearly in the negative.

In ‘JLA’ #44, the Justice League of America is under attack! Superman is working in Metropolis and realizes that everywhere people are reading scrambled words. Ra’s Al Ghul reveals to Batman in his mad science that his scientists have found a way to cause a global dyslexia in an effort to bring about an end time. And Batman’s parents? He plans to use the Lazarus Pit to raise them! But Batman had to be occupied by his parents’ coffins’ theft for Ra’s to implement his mad science.

Ra’s Al Ghul reveals that he stole Batman’s contingency plans. In his mad science, Batman devised ways to stop the members of the JLA in the event that it ever went evil or succumbed to mind control.

Unfortunately, his plans were stolen by Ra’s who used them to incapacitate the JLA in his plan for world domination. In ‘JLA’ #43, Martian Manhunter is turned into a living torch by a rocket fired at him with nanites that transmute trace elements into magnesium.

Plastic Man has been turned brittle, and Aquaman has been fired with a toxin that makes him fear the water he needs to survive. Flash and Wonder Woman head to Green Lantern’s apartment and find he is blind. In ‘JLA’ #45, Martian Manhunter’s scan discovers that Kyle was put under a post-hypnotic suggestion during REM sleep as the assassins slipped his ring on his finger.

Flash and Wonder Woman are attacked by Talia Al Ghul and the League of Assassins. Wonder Woman is attacked with a VR Chip in her brain that simulates combat till she gets a heart attack. Flash has an electrostrobe attached to his spine that triggers epileptic seizures at lightspeed. Superman is crippled by an exposure to a synthetic red kryptonite. Martian Manhunter states that it caused his solar energy to blaze through his muscles and organs.

SHOULD BATMAN LEAVE THE JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA?

In ‘JLA’ #46, the JLA has succeeded in thwarting Ra’s Al Ghul’s ‘Tower Of Babel‘ and in stopping a biochemical virus that kills people on contact. The JLA must deal with the fallout of Batman’s betrayal. Batman’s mad science was a breach of trust that the JLA found the most serious. The JLA votes on whether to keep him a member. Aquaman, Wonder Woman and Plastic Man vote to remove Batman’s membership.

Martian Manhunter, Flash and Green Lantern vote to keep him. Superman cast the deciding vote. Knowing Superman’s vote, Batman left suggesting Superman would decide to remove Batman’s membership. The question raised by his action is put forth by the Flash during the vote: In his mad science, Batman operates on fear, whereas Superman operates on trust. Who is correct?

In 'JLA' #46, Superman cast the deciding vote, removing Batman out of membership from the JLA.
