The Green Lantern Corps Podcast

Bounty hunter and Sinestro Corps member, Fatality

Here she is, Fatality, the Green Lantern hunter herself. Fatality has been a very deep and motivative villain since showing up in the early 90’s. One of the last survivors of a planet that was destroyed by accident by John Stewart. Since that day, Fatality has made it her mission to kill all Green Lanterns. Through her life mission she has lost both her arms and one of her ears. About 46% of her body is now cybernetic and has them up graded a few times. Here is her tale:

he eldest child of the planet Xanshi’s ruling family, the girl who would one day call herself Fatality was sent off-world to be educated by the fabled Warlords of Okaara. When Xanshi was destroyed due to a miscalculation by Green Lantern John Stewart, she became her world’s sole survivor. Learning of Xanshi’s fate, and that a Green Lantern was responsible, she left Okaara and dedicated herself to becoming the deadliest warrior in all the universe. Remaining ignorant of Stewart’s identity, she swore vengeance on all Green Lanterns, hunting down members of the Corps and accumulating a grisly collection of trophies. When the Green Lantern Corps was rendered powerless, Fatality viewed the last Green Lantern, Kyle Rayner, as her ultimate prize. Their conflict took them from Earth to a desolate planetoid, where during combat she discovered Stewart was to blame for Xanshi’s destruction. Fatality seemingly perished in the battle, though no body (save a severed arm) was recovered. Fatality would later reappear on Earth, having acquired a prosthetic arm and a Qwardian yellow power ring. She again fought Kyle Rayner, who convinced her to remove the yellow ring. The Qwardians had booby trapped the ring, causing it to explosively teleport away after being removed, thus destroying Fatality’s (remaining) arm. After being imprisoned on Earth for a while, she was eventually released by Major Force. She has since been seen working as a bounty hunter in the Vega System in the 2005 miniseries Green Lantern Corps: Recharge.
She became a member of the earth-based Secret Society of Super Villains. While in battle she loses an ear to Vandal Savage’s daughter, Scandal.
Most recently, she is seen among the new Injustice League, with a new Sinestro Corps ring and the Sinestro Corps member of Sector 1313. She was banished to the prison planet, Salvation following capture by the Suicide Squad.

There you have it, Fatality. While her costume is a tribute to the Green Lantern’s she’s killed. I would have been happier if they would have given her a partial redesign to fit in more with the Sinestro Corps. I mean Mongul just has the Parallax logo on his chest and his gauntlets and boots have been redone. I mean, nothing major but at least a bit of a yellow version of her current costume. Oh well, maybe next time.
