War of Light

During the Sinestro Corps War, the Sinestro Corps slaughtered many in their campaign of terror. Among the most ruthless of the Sinestro Corps was Arkillo, who murdered the mate of the being known as Vice. Filled with rage against Arkillo and the Sinestro Corps, Vice was inducted into the Red Lantern Corps. The most ruthless member of the Red Lantern Corps, Vice was among the strike force that ambushed the members Green Lanterns transporting Sinestro back to Korugar for execution.[1]

Following the Red Lantern Corps defeat at Ysmault, Vice was eventually captured by Guy Gardner and Kilowog, placing a green muzzle construct on him to prevent him from spewing his blood and escaping. Observing his entry, Scar remotely used her powers to remove Vice's muzzle and allow him to escape his sciencell.[2] He managed to subdue Voz, Warden of the Sciencells, in short order, to the cheers of the other inmates. Their cheers turned to cries of horror when Vice began attack the Sinestro Corps members also housed in the sciencells.[3] Eventually, the riot was quelled, and the incident led to many executions at the hands of the Alpha Lantern Corps.[4]

Blackest Night

In Blackest Night, it is revealed that the Black Lantern Corps can only be defeated by multiple Lanterns teaming up with their powers. Guy Gardner and Kyle Rayner attempt to unleash Vice onto the zombies, but as soon as he is released from his Sciencell he is killed by the malfunctioning Alpha Chaselon for resisting arrest.[5] After his death, his ring was used by Guy being inducted into the Red Lantern Corps, as he felt anger over the Kyle's death.
