Death Battle Fanon Wiki

With blood and rage of crimson red,
Ripped from a corpse so fleshly dead,
Together with our hellish hate,
We'll burn you all,
That is your fate!

~ Red Lantern Corps Oath

You things may slaughter the other Corps -- but the Red Lanterns will not fall so easily!!
~ Atrocitus to the Black Lantern Corps - Green Lantern Vol. 4 #47 (December, 2009)

This is a strange world full of strange people. I hate it. I hate them. Most of them.
~ Atrocitus - Green Lantern Vol. 4 #61 (February, 2011)

I'm an enemy to all who serve the self-appointed Guardians of the Universe.
~ Atrocitus to Abin Sur - Green Lantern: Emerald Knights (June, 2011)

I am Atrocitus, lord and master of the Red Lantern Corps. I'm the one who will destroy the Guardians and all they stand for. I am wrath! I am hate! I am righteous vengeance!
~ Atrocitus to Hal Jordan - Green Lantern: The Animated Series Episode 1 - Beware My Power (November, 2011)

Sometimes amid the cacophony of rage comes a voice. A scream. It's the scream of the victim. Of the hurt. Of the worthy.
~ Atrocitus - Red Lanterns #2 (October, 2011)

Listen, Red Lanterns: The blood of the guilty must be sought out... This blood must be brought back to feed our power battery... and make it strong again.
~ Atrocitus - Red Lanterns #14 (November, 2012)

You. You instruments of the Guardians' evil. You bringers of death and despair. You... Manhunters.

Possible Opponents[]


Before becoming the leader of the Red Lantern Corps, Atrocitus was once an inhabitant of Space Sector 666. However, the Manhunters, a policing unit set up by the Guardians of the Universe to keep the peace in the universe, went rogue, and began an assault on the sector, causing a sector wide massacre that included the elimination of the entire population of the planet Ryut.

Overcome with rage, Atrocitus sought personal revenge on the Guardians, and started a terrorist group known as the Five Inversions, who found out of the prophecy centered around the so called "Blackest Night". After tricking the lantern Abin Sur into releasing him from his imprisonment on the planet Ysmault, after the Guardians had him apprehended, Atrocitus went on a rampage towards Earth, planning on capturing the supposed link to the Blackest Night, William Hand.

After being stopped by Hal Jordan and Sinestro, Atrocitus was prevented from taking Hand dead. However, after learning of Sinestro's betrayal of the Green Lanterns and the upcoming Sinestro Corps War, Atrocitus decided to forge his own Red Lantern Power Battery, and subsequently started the Red Lantern Corps, powered by rage with Atrocitus as their leader.

  • A Red Lantern user can vomit red plasma that is described as a mixture of acid and napalm
  • Can burn through pretty much anything, even through space

  • Blue Lanterns (and blue colors in general) weaken Red Lantern energy. This is because Blue is the color of Hope: which destroys rage.
  • Star Sapphires also weaken Red Lantern energy as love is the opposite of hate. Should a Red Lantern feel love for someone then their ring will reject them
  • Atrocitus' energy is based on his rage; which fluctuates and is difficult to control.
  • His constant rage makes Atrocitus impulsive and chaotic.
