Top Ten Green Lantern Villains

Updated on January 22, 2011

Green Lantern

Hal Jordan serves as the Green Lantern of Earth. The Green Lanterns are an intergalactic police force sworn to protect the galaxies. As a Green Lantern, Hal has faced numerous threats from the most villainous beings in the galaxy.


Sinestro is considered Hal Jordan's greatest enemy. Once a Green Lantern himself, Sinestro turned against the Guardians, the creators of the Green Lantern Corps. Sinestro wears a yellow power ring. Yellow is the one color on which the Green Lantern's power ring has no effect.


Sonar is a master of sound. He has faced Green Lantern many times and is even the leader of his own country of Modora. 

Star Sapphire

The Star Sapphires are a race of female alien warriors who possess a “star sapphire” weapon which is similar to Green Lantern’s power ring. They can assume the identities of other females and have even taken over the body and mind of Green Lantern's greatest love, Carol Ferris.

Doctor Polaris

Doctor Polaris has the power over magnetic fields. The first Doctor Polaris was killed in battle, but a new Doctor Polaris is now at large in the DC Universe.

Black Hand

A villain obsessed with death, he wears a ring that can affect the energy of the Green Lantern’s power ring. The Black Hand was the harbinger of Green Lantern’s greatest event series, Blackest Night.


Krona was an Oan scientist obsessed with the origins of the universe. The threat of his actions are what caused the Oan Guardians to form the Green Lantern Corps and brought about the DC Universe's greatest cataclysm, Crisis on Infinite Earths.

The Manhunters

The Manhunters were the first peace-keeping force created by the Oans. But the robots were obsessed with “the hunt” for cosmic villains and their obsessive tactics were shunned by the Oans, leading them to replace the machines with the Green Lantern Corps.

Major Disaster

Major Disaster has the power to cause just that — natural disasters. He keeps jumping sides from evil to good, but currently he menaces the DC Universe as a supervillain.

Hector Hammond

Exposed to a meteorite, the criminal Hector Hammond's head grew to enormous size. Due to the exposure, he has acquired fantastic psionic powers.


An evil alien being that attached itself inside Hal Jordan and changed his personality. It led to Green Lantern's greatest defeat as he turned mad, killed many of the Green Lantern Corps before being killed himself by the arrow of Green Arrow. Years later, Hal Jordan was reborn and the true nature of Parallax was brought to light.

      I think the First Lantern was a great villain too, but he might be too new to add to your list. But great list anyways!
