Larfleeze is the Orange Lantern Corps. Whereas early corps recruit their members, Larfleeze is besides greedy to parcel the Orange Lantern Corps, so his corporation is made of ring constructs of “ members ” he killed.
The origins of Larfleeze, besides known as Agent Orange, remain shrouded in mystery, largely due to the actions of the Guardians of the Universe. He revealed that his people were farmers and he was considered atrocious as a child. He was mistreated by his parents, Larfloozee and Larflem, and his 16 siblings. Aliens called Lakadakians came to conquer his populace. Larfleeze was forced to mate with a female prisoner named Brokia and they had many children. But they were sent off to distant worlds for bondage. One day he had an escape plan were he went on a cadaver cart and clawed his way through an incinerator and led a disgust. According to his own account, Larfleeze was one part of a group of five thieves who wanted to pull off the greatest burglarize in the history of their club. They raided the planet Maltus, where one of their own was lost, and steal several treasures, chiefly a box and a function. The box was purportedly worth more than an entire star system, for it contained Parallax, the sentient embodiment of fear. The early thing they stole was a map made by the fallen Maltusian Krona, said to contain something very valuable. Making their way to Okaara, they entered the Forbidden Forest of Weeds. Another of their group was killed by the forest, and the others fell into a temple. Inside was an Orange Lantern Power Battery. Mesmerized by it, the three remaining thieves started fighting among themselves for the Lantern. The Guardians then arrived with a force of Manhunters. however, their power was drained by the orange light, and respective Guardians and Manhunters were killed, along with a third member of the thieves, leaving only Larfleeze and Blooch remaining. The Guardians then said that all they wanted was the box containing Parallax. If the two would give it up, they would be allowed to keep the Orange Battery, a long as it stayed buried in the temple on Okaara. additionally, only one could own the barrage. Larfleeze and Blooch accepted the distribute, and then fought to the death. Larfleeze won, and became the exclusive wielder of the Orange Battery, then known as Agent Orange. [ 1 ] When the Sinestro Corps War ended, multiple Yellow Power Rings made their means to the Vega organization, and the Guardians authorized the green Lanterns to enter the system and capture the rings and their bearers. Agent Orange tolerated them as they did not head to Okaara. however, the Controllers, aware of the coming War of Light, decided to seek out the orange light and harness it for their own ability. Journeying to Okaara, the Controllers discovered Larfleeze ‘s underground palace and entered. They found the Orange Lantern Power Battery and attempted to claim it, lone for Agent Orange to unleash the Orange Lanterns from the battery to kill the Controllers. [ 2 ] Enraged at this perceived trespass, Agent Orange sent the Orange Lanterns to capture the Green Lantern Stel, who was pursuing a penis of the Sinestro Corps. Stel was captured and seriously damaged, and Agent Orange ordered the Orange Lanterns to sword Stel with their sealing wax. When the Green Lanterns recovered Stel and returned him to Oa, a hologram of Agent Orange burst forth and confronted the Guardians about the attempt to steal the Orange Battery. Although the Guardians pointed out that it was the Controllers who had entered Vega, Agent Orange refused to listen, and declared that the treaty was nothing and invalidate, and that the Guardians would submit to his demands or face the wrath of the Orange Lanterns. Saying that the Guardians did not negotiate with terrorists, the Scarred Guardian blasted the Agent Orange hologram and presented a motion to repeal the Vega ban. [ 2 ] Despite reservations, the Guardians went ahead with the revoke of the prohibition. Making their room to Okaara, the Guardians and the green Lanterns were soon attacked by Orange Lanterns. Larfleeze ‘s lanterns began draining the energy from the constructs the Guardians and the Green Lanterns created, and managed to kill Gretti and steal his ring, adding Gretti ‘s power to his own. however, Larfleeze quickly realized that Hal Jordan had a Blue Lantern Ring that he could not drain. Intrigued, Agent Orange dragged Hal metro and demanded that he surrender the ring. Larfleeze touches the band in his desire for it, and is forced back by the baron of the blue light ( the ring itself claiming that “ hope is altruistic ” ). This enrages Larfleeze, who bargains with Jordan over it, telling the history of how he got the Orange Lantern Power Battery. [ 3 ] Though Jordan agrees to give the band to Larfleeze, he finds he is ineffective to remove it. not finding this to be an acceptable answer, Larfleeze creates an ax from the orange light and removes Jordan ‘s hired hand by force. no long attached to Jordan, the blue ability ring welcomes Larfleeze to the Blue Lantern Corps. [ 1 ] For a moment the ceaseless hunger he feels is pacified, but the relief is impermanent as the subscriber is shown at the beginning of the following return that Jordan ‘s blue closed chain created an delusion to deceive him. Sensing Larfleeze ‘s hope for relief, it made him believe he gained the blue call he desired when in actuality he had never cut off Jordan ‘s hand at all. Jordan returns to battle Larfleeze with the green Lantern Corps. During the battle, Jordan is possessed by the overwhelm orange power of avarice after briefly seizing Larfleeze ‘s world power battery ( assuming that by stealing it, Larfleeze would no farseeing be able to power his army of constructs ). unfortunately, it was explained that Larfleeze has been in contact with the orange barrage for therefore long that it is angstrom much a partially of him as the independent power battery in Oa is a part of the Guardians.

Jordan is able to subdue Larfleeze by last gaining control over his blue sky ability gang. The Guardians realize that if they take the battery from Larfleeze, person else would inevitably find it, becoming a new Agent Orange. Preferring to know where Agent Orange was, they decide to negotiate with Larfleeze once more. The details of the negotiation are not amply revealed to the reader, however it is shown that Larfleeze asked the Guardians where he could find a aristocratic baron ring. The consequence ends with Larfleeze launching an attack on the Blue Lantern Corps, sending a group of his Orange Lantern constructs to Odym. [ 4 ] Though Larfleeze remains on Okaara ( observing the progress of the conflict through his power battery ), he sends a manufacture of himself to accompany his Orange Lanterns. [ 5 ] [ 6 ]
As the battle rages on in Odym, however, a teem of Black Lantern Rings fly into his palace and latch into the corpses of all the victims he had accrued over the years. While at first gear he is overjoyed at the concept of a new ring he could hold, he soon became horrified at the power of the Black Lanterns, and tried unsuccessfully to destroy them until Atrocitus of the Red Lantern Corps managed to reach him, demanding he surrender the Orange Lantern Power Battery. [ 7 ] [ 8 ] Larfleeze is saved by the intervention of Saint Walker, Hal Jordan, Carol Ferris, Indigo-1, and Sinestro, who convince both of them to join to face the Black Lanterns. [ 9 ] Larfleeze avariciously demands the group for his cooperation if they give him what he wants, such as his own Guardian in which Sayd promises that when the conflict is done, she will become one for him, despite the objections of her fellow defender Ganthet ; and a planet-sized snack bar, all for him, to placate his acute hunger. His demands greatly annoy Atrocitus and Sinestro, in which the former wants to kill him and that the latter approves as Larfleeze ‘s ring will go to another holder which they could find and locate its owner. however, Indigo-1 defends Larfleeze, stating that he is not inherently evil and that his hunger is merely a english effect of the orange light. Saint Walker approaches Larfleeze, telling him that his attack on Odym is forgiven and that american samoa long as Saint Walker is near, the amobarbital sodium closed chain will keep Larfleeze ‘s hunger at bay. Larfleeze ultimately relinquishes and accompanies the group to Ryut and Earth in a fail attempt to destroy the Black Lantern Central Power Battery. During the assault, he attempted to consume the Black Lantern Guardian Scar as his own, but she managed to gain the upper hand, which forced the other members of the group to destroy her. [ 10 ] After the originator behind the Blackest Night, Nekron turns all the resurrected heroes into Black Lanterns, Ganthet initializes a program in Hal ‘s ring which duplicates the ring and welcomes Ganthet into the green Lantern Corps. His last act as Guardian was to initialize the same program in the rings of the early Lanterns. Larfleeze ‘s ring duplicated and went to Lex Luthor, who was consumed by the ability of the orange light and started attacking the Lanterns, demanding their rings, but Larfleeze does not want to share the exponent and attacked Luthor. After defeating Luthor for master of the Orange Lanterns he handed him over and received his defender as promised .
Larfleeze late finds and assaults Lex Luthor, asking him what humans value most, to which Lex responds that the most valuable possession is state. Larfleeze is shown to have taken up residency in a little, upper midwestern town. He sends his orange Lanterns into town to steal things for him. When Hal Jordan confronts him and tells him to leave the township alone, Larfleeze tells him that he will not need to ransack the town anymore because he has learned of the caption of Santa Claus. Larfleeze intends to make lists of all the things he wants and send them to Santa Claus. When Hal tries to explain to Larfleeze that Santa Claus is not real, Larfleeze comments that the mountain of gorge, that he has stolen, is attest to the adverse. Frustrated, Hal reveals that he has come to Larfleeze to find out how he was able to trap the orange entity in his lantern, so that they can trap the other entities to keep them out of the hands of the one trying to collect them. Before Larfleeze can tell him Hector Hammond arrives. After struggling with Larfleeze and Hal for the battery, Hammond ends up swallowing it. This frees snake and the entity of avarice takes Hammond as its host. Larfleeze shows a capital deal of concern at Ophidian ‘s exemption, particularly because it seems that snake does not like him very much. The battle with Ophidian does not go very well for Hal or Larfleeze. While fleeing snake, Larfleeze admits that he was not entirely honest about his ownership of the orange lantern and that he and snake have a rather antagonistic relationship ; however, he is promptly to blame Ophidian for starting any it was that came between them. snake states that Larfleeze was the alone being in the population capable of resisting his temptations, thereby allowing Larfleeze to subdue him and become Agent Orange — and that now it is Larfleeze ‘s turn to be subdued and used by snake. snake then attempts to devour Larfleeze, but this is prevented by Hal. After that the desires of Hector Hammond begin to override those of snake and he leaves to search for his ultimate hope, Carol Ferris. Hal has to get to Las Vegas to save Carol, and Larfleeze ( who is in a state of approach craze, telling Hal that he can not live without his lantern ) demands to come. Once there Larfleeze seems to forget wholly about snake and his lost lantern ( which appears to have had no effect on his ability to spawn orange lanterns ) and rather revels in the rich people culture of Las Vegas. He is stopped by the Predator, who forces him to experience the sadness of his empty heart, briefly causing him to think of his family. He is belated taken to Zamaron by the Star Sapphires along with Hal, Carol, The Predator, and Abraham Pointe ( the man possessed by the Predator ). Larfleeze is present when Carol is named the new Queen of the Star Sapphires, and states that he wants to be fagot. While watching over Pointe, Larfleeze is shaken to discover that Pointe knows of his past through the Predator — that he was taken from his family, and that “ Larfleeze ” is not his real name. Larfleeze about kills Pointe to keep him from speaking his name, before returning to Earth with the others to meet a young womanhood who has been possessed by the hope entity, Adara. Adara reveals to a shock Larfleeze that his parents are placid alive, and that they miss him .
Larfleeze Christmas Special
On Christmas Day, Larfleeze is outraged to discover that Santa Claus has not brought him anything that he asked for. He attacks every costumed Santa in the nearby township, and tries to melt the North Pole, only to be stopped by Hal Jordan. Jordan tells Larfleeze of Christmas liveliness, and how it comes from giving. On Hal ‘s suggestion, Larfleeze gives away every item in his batch of possessions, but afterwards declares that he does not like Christmas intent. Jordan then suggests that he look over his Christmas list and see if he actually needed anything there. That nox, Larfleeze stares at a part of his list, on which he had written “ my family ” .
When Krona ‘s attack trapped the other six New Guardians in the Book of the Black, Hal was able to escape with their rings. Although he initially discouraged John Stewart from using the ring ascribable to its psychological effects, Hal late used Larfleeze ‘s Orange ring in junction with Sinestro ‘s call to hold off the attacking brainwashed Green Lanterns long enough for Guy to break Parallax out of the Central Power Battery and restore their comrades to normal. While trapped inside the Book of the Black, Larfleeze was forced to relive a childhood memory of bondage .
