Sinestro goes to Oa alongside John Stewart and Katma Tui to warn the surviving Guardians of the renegade Guardians' plan (killed in Crisis on Infinite Earths (DC, 1985 series) #9 and recapped in Green Lantern (DC, 1976 series) #195). At first he isn't believed by them, until a possessed Arisia (by the Main Power Battery) tells them what he speaks is true. The entire surviving Green Lantern Corps then head to the antimatter universe to stop the plan, while Sinestro is placed in a cell.

The entire Green Lantern Corps faces off against Guy Gardner's group on Qward's moon in the antimatter universe, which if destroyed, would make the Anti-Monitor become even more powerful. The Corps stops the plan, but at the cost of several Lanterns, one of whom is Tomar-Re. With his dying breath, Tomar gives his ring to John Stewart and Abin Sur's ring is returned to Hal Jordan, who once again becomes a Green Lantern.
