Vice is a noted member of the Red Lantern Corps, fueled by his anger over the death of his lover at the hands of Arkillo; who first killed, then proceeded to eat her body. Vice is a vicious and sadistic fighter who follows a simple philosophy: tear and destroy. Vice's unusual facial structure allows him to clamp on and rip an enemies head off by using his bottom pincher bone to shove up and through someone's chin, while the top pincher clamps down on the top of the skull.
During the Sinestro Corps War, the Sinestro Corps slaughtered many in their campaign of terror. Among the most ruthless of the Sinestro Corps was Arkillo, who murdered and ate the mate of the being known as Vice. The tragic loss fueled a great rage that stirred inside of him. Since then, Vice has been consumed with revenge against Arkillo and the entire Sinestro Corps. On the planet Ysmault, beside a lake of blood, Vice swore an oath of vengeance at the behest of Atrocitus, and the red light consumed his body and replaced his blood. Vice was transformed into a Red Lantern, a killing machine fueled by an endless rage, and became the most ruthless member of the Red Lantern Corps.
