Years ago, Abin Sur defeated the fear-essence being Parallax and imprisoned him in the Lost Sector (Sector 666) on the ruined planet Ryut. However, in the present day, Parallax escapes from his prison. Six months later, after killing four Green Lanterns and destroying two planets, Parallax attacks Sector 2814 and mortally wounds Abin Sur, who escapes and crash-lands on the nearest inhabited planet - Earth. The dying Abin Sur commands his ring to find a worthy successor on the planet.
Ferris Aircraft test pilot Hal Jordan is chosen by the ring and transported to the crash site, where Abin Sur appoints him a Green Lantern before passing away. Hal buries his body before being picked up by Thomas Kalmaku. Sur's body is then found by the government and examined by Hector Hammond. Some of Parallax's DNA in Sur's wound gets transferred to Hammond. It is unknown what happens to Sur's corpse after the autopsy.
