The Ring of Volthoom: The Ring of Volthoom is an evil ring that draws its power from its owner, killing them from the inside out. It has been considered to be the opposite of a Green Lantern Ring, feeding off of its wearer's fear as opposed to their willpower. Only by overcoming and subduing their fears can Volthoom be put to rest, until such time that the owner lets his or her fears resurface.
One of the most cowardly humans on his version of Earth, Harold Jordan was a lowly janitor working for Ferris Aircraft before he became the super criminal Power Ring. Jordan had been secretly taking notes to sell Ferris Aircraft's secrets to competitor until he was eventually caught by his boss Carl Ferris for spying on his daughter Carol Ferris. Confronted, Jordan begged him for forgiveness in which his fear caught the attention of the Ring of Volthoom, attached to the alien Abin Sur. The alien, dying from his injuries, made one last wish to give Jordan the ring that he deserves. The ring, accepting it's new host, spoke to the lowly janitor and bullied him into accepting the curse.
After making a name for himself with his crime, Power Ring joined the Crime Syndicate and was most regularly paired with Deathstorm. Jordan continually begged Deathstorm to help him remove the alien ring, as it was slowly killing its wearer by ravaging his body. However, Deathstorm constantly dismisses the pleas, saying the he needs more time to study the weapon's effects.
After their home universe was destroyed, the Syndicate invaded Earth 0 in hopes of making it theirs.
