Parallax is the physical embodiment of fear, an entity given power by the emotional electromagnetic spectrum. Thousands of years ago the Guardians of the Universe imprisoned him in their Central Power Battery on Oa, and his presence caused the infamous yellow impurity in the Green Lantern Corps' power rings. He is eventually released when he possessed the legendary Hal Jordan, turning him evil and driving him completely insane. Eventually Jordan is released from the malevolent creature's control, although it has continued to menace the Green Lantern Corps and all the forces of good in general.
