No other event has impacted the galaxy in recent years as the War of Light that brought all the different color corps that harness the power of the emotional spectrum of light. With these different groups now operating in the open, many were concerned that the use of so much power would throw off the balance of the universe. While this matter was debated, Green Lantern Kyle Rayner of Earth was approached by rings from each of the other Corps and forced to wear them. This event brought other Lanterns looking for their missing rings right to Kyle, and the inevitable conflict ensued. With matters between them temporarily sorted, Kyle and these other Lanterns took off on a mission to discover what caused the rings to find Kyle in the first place. These “New Guardians” teamed together for some time, coming into conflict with the Weaponer, the Archangel Invictus and ultimately The Orange Lantern Larfleeze. Recently, the New Guardians discovered that Larfleeze’s slave and former Guardian of the Universe, Sayd, was responsible for the power rings that deserted their users to find Kyle. Sayd knew the power that the united corps could represent and had hoped they would be able to oppose the machinations of the Guardians of the Universe and free her beloved Ganthet. The New Guardians disbanded upon learning this news, leaving the task of uniting the Corps solely to Kyle.
