The Spider Guild are a coalition of Arachnid aliens who have caused many problems for the Green Lantern Corps and the Omega Men. They are a conquering race comprised of drones that answer to a central computer control at Wombworld. They move from space sector to space sector, always searching for new worlds to occupy.
Not all of the Spider World's prospective conquests proved to be successful however. More than thirty years ago, a Spider Guild force occupied the planet of Ogyptu, which was populated by giant, stone humanoids. Time passed differently for the native Ogyptuans than it did for other species, and they were not even aware of the Spider Guild's presence. The occupation force remained on Ogyptu until the guild masters died of old age. The Ogyptuans never even knew they were there.
One of the first Green Lantern Corps members to encounter the Spider Guild was the equine Brin. Brin attempted to use reason to convince the Spider Guild to turn back their invasion fleet, but when this failed he summoned his brethren in the Green Lantern Corps. Where Brin failed, the other Corps members succeeded in repelling them.
The Spider Guild would not go away forever though, and it wasn't long before other champions of freedom would have to deal with them. The Guild made a steadfast sweep across the Vega star system first taking the planet Aello and continuing on their attack pattern until they occupied Euphorix and then Okaara.
Invariably, these attacks put them into direct conflict with the Omega Men. During the invasion of Euphorix, the Spider Guild succeeded in capturing the Eurphorian and leader of the Omega Men Primus.
