Fatality

(pop culture)
Arch-villain assassin Fatality was bent on slaying Green Lantern during her reign of terror—not just Kyle Rayner, Earth's fifth Green Lantern, but all of the ring-bearing heroes. Co-created by writer Ron Marz and artist Darryl Banks, she first appeared in Green Lantern vol. 3 #83 (1997) as Yrra Cynril, the eldest child of a royal family of the planet Xanshi. When the planet is accidentally obliterated by Rayner's predecessor, Green Lantern John Stewart, she swears revenge on the entire Green Lantern Corps, an elite team of superpowered peacekeepers. As Fatality, the energy-blade-wielding super–martial artist, Cynril traveled the galaxy and defied time and space constraints in search of former Green Lanterns. After murdering them one by one, she arrived on Earth to face off with Rayner. Their battle culminated on a distant planet, where Fatality learned of Stewart's identity and pegged him as the Lantern responsible for her planet's demise. Although she ended up confronting Stewart (who was assisted by Jade, making for an interesting catfight), she presumably died in battle. Although Fatality's body was never found, that didn't stop her from reappearing in DC Comics' Villains United #2 (2005), in which she joined a massive assemblage of villains, part of Lex Luthor's Secret Society, in battle against the Secret Six (a small network of villains who oppose Luthor's grand-scale gathering). And with the resurrection of the Silver Age (1956–1969) Green Lantern, Hal Jordan, from the dead in 2005, she has yet another Emerald Crusader to despise. Although she has seldom appeared outside the comic-book pages, the space-traveling death-dealer was immortalized in a 2002 action figure from DC Direct.
