Banished for his crimes to the anti-matter universe of Qward, while in exile he managed to forge a power ring powered by the yellow light of fear. Now Sinestro leads his own Lantern Corps dedicated to terrifying the universe into unconditional submission.

Legendary Order

1-5/4-3/2

Sinestro’s legendary upgrades don’t bring any outstanding synergy with the rest of his kit, so consider what each of them does and what this brings to your team when deciding what to upgrade first.

Synergies

Sinestro can work well with characters who enjoy feasting on taunters like Batman – The Dark Knight, those who apply Enrage like Harley Quinn – Mad Jester and those who can stun like Vixen.

Batman The Dark Knight, Harley Quinn Mad Jester, Vixen, Killer Croc

Countered By

Hard hitting Mystic characters can take Sinestro down to size, and characters like Wonder Girl can take an Enrage debuff and turn it into Sinestro’s greatest fear – death.

Wonder Girl, Wonder Woman – Princess of Themyscira, Wonder Woman – Defender of Justice

Notes

Sinestro is a slow character that gains most of his turn meter by his allies  applying stuns and enraging the enemy. He doesn’t see much play in the game.
