    This is the only book associated with the character tag “Parallax.” I know he was in Rebirth and Sinestro Wars. I’m also trying to figure out when he was introduced (trade wise) and took over Hal. Emerald Twilight?


    Marc replied on February 23rd, 2011 at 3:17 am:

    I’m not sure I would include Parallax in anything prior to Rebirth, really, since it was a retcon introduced by Geoff Johns in that miniseries.


    Ian replied on February 23rd, 2011 at 3:19 am:

    wait, no he wasn’t.


    I thought I remembered him by that name in this book, but otherwise it’s definitely him. I haven’t actually read rebirth, so I don’t know how he explains it, but I think his arc was more about explaining away the motivations, but the name has existed since the 90s.


    Marc replied on February 23rd, 2011 at 3:26 am:

    Oh really? I take back what I said then…apparently I should just stick to what I know about Marvel, haha.


    Ian replied on February 23rd, 2011 at 3:29 am:

    I think he introduced it as a separate entity. Before then everyone just thought hal went bonkers.


    Chris D. replied on February 23rd, 2011 at 4:23 am:

    yeah from what I can tell he “became” Parallax and THEN in rebirth they said it was actually an intelligent villain trapped in the power battery on OA. Just gave him more of a back story.

    Of course you can tag Parallax in here, Hal adopts the moniker of Parallax in this trade. Now, I can see if you’d want to distinguish between ‘crazy Hal’ Parallax and ‘space bug’ Parallax, but it’s a difficult move


    Ian replied on May 13th, 2011 at 11:34 am:

    glad you agree. we might try to put in a secondary set of tags for parralax like Parallax (Hal Jordan) and Parallax (Entity) but probably not for a while. We don’t even have separate tags for the Spectre, etc.


    Ian replied on February 23rd, 2011 at 3:21 am:

    to answer your original question, yeah, Emerald Twilight.


    Ian replied on February 23rd, 2011 at 3:30 am:

    and honestly, though, I think these stories are much better not knowing about the “take over”. I’m glad I read them before I learned about that. Following hal through the silver age and then to this point makes these almost devastating. Especially because of all the Corps characters… well, read it.


    Simon replied on February 23rd, 2011 at 3:54 am:

    Emerald Twilight is a fantastic read and Ian is correct in saying that is where Parallax first shows up even if he isn’t known as an entity at this point. Zero Hour follows on from ETwilight almost straight away so can read both back to back if you really want to get stuck into this one.


    Chris D. replied on February 23rd, 2011 at 4:23 am:

    Cool, that’s what I was wondering. I just got ZH, should I wait to get ET before reading?


    Simon replied on February 23rd, 2011 at 7:42 am:

    Yeah deff wait it’ll make reading ET a chore rather than the enjoyable experience it should be.
    I’ve got the Emerald Twilight/New Dawn trade, a 2-in-1 trade, pretty cheap and New Dawn is pretty cool too:


    It appears to be pretty dear now though, along the same pricing as “Final Night” which is essentially the 3rd part to the story (ET -> ZH -> FN). I still haven’t got Final Night myself.

    I might be adding this really late, I just happened to stumble onto this blog and read a couple of the first posts, I haven’t read all of them, so apologies if this has already been addressed. But to answer/comment on one of the first posts: Hal Jordan wasn’t possessed by Parallax, he became Parallax, basically nothing more then a name change, after he snapped and went nuts when The Cyborg (while masquerading as The Man of Steel) and Mongul blew up Silver or Star City, or whatever the name of the city was, during the Death of, Reign of Supermen, & Return of Supermen. This lead Hal Jordan to become Parallax, seeking out a way to bring is beloved city back. This is one of the main things that lead to the Zero Hour Storyline.
