The enigmatic being known as Dark Lantern seemed strangely familiar - at least to those closely acquainted with the legacy of the Green Lantern Corps - when he first made his presence known on Earth. Some speculation suggested he was a creation of the diabolical Qwardians, denizens of the anti-matter universe opposite to our own and worshipers of evil who remain bitter enemies of any Green Lantern. Other observers, noting the mystic runes etched on his gargantuan body, suggested he was an arcane agent of the Empire of Tears, black magicians thought imprisoned by the Guardians of the Universe long ago. However, the truth is he was created by some of the remaining Green Lanterns who had lost their power rings when Hal Jordan was possessed by Parallax. Based on Xudar, they called themselves the "Brotherhood of the Cold Flame". They tapped into arcane forces and based on the unusual nature of the Bolovax Vik afterlife, they converted the soul of Kilowog into the Dark Lantern in order to send him after Jordan.
