With blood and rage of crimson red,
Ripped from a corpse so fleshly dead,
Together with our hellish hate,
We'll burn you all,
That is your fate!

~ Atrocitus

This is a strange world full of strange people. I hate it. I hate them. Most of them.
~ Atrocitus

History Edit

Atrocitus was born Atros of planet Ryut in Space Sector 666. He lived a peaceful life with his wife and daughter until the Manhunters, acting on a program malfunction induced by Krona, exterminated all life in Sector 666 which became known as Lost Sector. Atros was the sole survivor of the onslaught. Maddened by the death of his family, Atros joined four others in forming a terrorist cabal known as the Five Inversions to exact revenge on the Guardians of the Universe, despite managing to stop their creations, and those serving them. Though captured, Atrocitus uses the visions he received of the Black Night to get his freedom while murdering the Green Lantern Abur Sur. Eventually turning on his former allies to use their blood as foundation of his revenge, Atrocitus created the Red Lantern Corp whose power derives from the red energy of rage. From there, Atrocitus recruits members from across the universe who possessed great anger and hate, including those wronged by both by Green Lantern and the Sinestro Corps.
