Parallax as the embodiment of Fear, is capable of generating, and manipulating vast amounts of energy. Parallax is also capable of all of the immense abilities and powers of a Qwardian Power Ring. Parallax is capable of creating solid energy constructs. It has immense fear-casting and mind-control powers. It can take possession of someone's body when they feel even the slightest fear. It is also capable of Hypnosis, Reality Alteration, Time Manipulation and Flight. As a living entity of a emotional concept Parallax is for all purposes undying.
Parallax is the living embodiment of fear, a demonic parasitic entity which would travel from world to world, causing entire societies to destroy themselves out of fear and paranoia. Parallax is one of the seven Emotional Embodiments representing the individual aspects of the Emotional Spectrum and came into existence when the first insect of Earth emitted fear among its prey.
Originally, The Guardians Of The Universe trapped Parallax inside of a container which was kept safe on the planet Maltus. A group of thieves. led by Larfleeze, stole the containment unit along with a map that led them straight to the Orange Lantern Central Power Battery on the planet Okaara in The Vega System. During a struggle for the Orange Power Battery between Larfleeze and his former guild mates Blooch and Turpa, the Guardians and a group of Manhunters desperately tried to retrieve Parallax but, due to the intense power of the Orange Light of Avarice, all who attempted were killed in the process.
The Guardians eventually were able to strike a deal that would allow the person who won the struggle for the Orange Light of Avarice to keep all of it's power as well as have total control of the Vega System, so long as they did not breech its borders. Larfleeze ended up being the victor and shortly following his transformation into Agent Orange, he handed over the containment unit that was keeping Parallax imprisoned as a sign of good faith. Sometime later, Parallax went from being contained within the box to being imprisoned within the Green Lantern Central Power Battery. This caused the colour yellow's immunity to Green Lantern rings as well as the Green Lantern rings' weakness to the colour yellow.
