Sinestro was born on the planet Korugar and grew to become a fearless warrior. His aptitudes made Sinestro a prime candidate for the Green Lantern Corps. As a Green Lantern, he was assigned Space Sector 1417. The lure of the power rings corrupted Sinestro and he began to believe he was above the law. In order to protect the innocent, he could bend the rules.

Sinestro was recalled to Green Lantern Corps on planet Oa to train a new recruit named Hal Jordan. The two became good friends. Sinestro was sent on a mission to stop the Warlords of Okaara. Sinestro viewed them as agents of chaos that threatened a peaceful universe and murdered most of the Warlords. Sinestro set up a puppet government of Warlords who pledged loyalty to him. Eventually, the Green Lantern Corps learned of Sinestro's tyranny and imprisoned him in a sciencell on Oa. He later teamed up with Batman, Guy Gardner, and G'Nort to stop Despero. Sinestro had no faith in his team mates and took matters into his own hands. Instead of going ahead to Earth and placing it in a protective shield, he landed on Mogo and began planting explosives. Gardner intervened and defeated Sinestro. Sinestro was imprisoned in Gardner's power ring.
