Heroclix War of Light: Sinestro Corps – Individual Characters REVEALED
by Lucas Siegel | shared from newsarama.com
After last week’s two-part reveal of the Green Lantern Corps in the Wizkids Organized Play starting in June, War of Light, today we finish our look at the Sinestro Corps, the wielders of the Yellow Light of Fear.

Don’t worry, we’ll have another full new Corps for you next week, but first, it’s time to get a little afraid.
Today we look at seven individual character cards for the Sinestro Corps. The second full-on corps wielding a light from the emotional spectrum through rings, the Sinestro Corps is considered the opposite of the Green Lantern Corps. In fact, the GLs used to have a unique weakness to yellow, thanks to an impurity caused by Parallax, the living embodiment of fear.
Yellow, being to the left of Green on the emotional spectrum, is considered one of the “villainous” lights, though Sinestro, the corps’ founder and leader, would argue that he’s a greater hero than any Green could ever hope to be. After all, his main point of order is well, that order is the point. He believes he can better lead the universe to order through fear than through just will, and recruits some very scary assistance to help him reach his goal.
A couple of small notes – All of Sinestro’s abilities together play out the entire Sinestro Corps Oath. Oh, and the Pulse Wave for the Sinestro Recruit? Truly terrifying. Also check out the Parallax figure, featuring an alternate take on Kyle Rayner when he was overtaken by the yellow entity. Rayner is unique in that he has wielded every color of light – maybe we’ll see more Rayners in the other Corps!
