    read this on another forum and cleared a lot of shit up

    ndrew NDB's Green Lantern Timeline/Continuity Guide

    Basic and straight-forward, but hopefully a logical guide to the current continuity as we know it.

    ---

    10,000,000,000 Years Ago: The planet Maltus is formed.

    4,600,000,000 Years Ago: Life emerges on Earth.

    4,000,400,000 Years Ago: Renegade Maltusian Krona constructs a machine that pierces the temporal barrier and views the beginnings of time itself. Krona catches a glimpse of the hand of creation depositing the speck that would become the entire cosmos. His machine explodes at that instant, and the universe is shattered causing the creation of the original Multiverse as the universe replicates into an infinite number of parallel universes. At this same moment, the Anti-Matter Universe is created, unleashing evil and Entropy into the cosmos; thus, the original Monitor and the Anti-Monitor are born. As punishment for this act, Krona is transformed into pure energy by his fellow Maltusians and is sent to forever wander the cosmos. Krona's actions is what caused the Oans to become the Guardians of the Universe, who then relocate from Maltus to the planet Oa. Shortly thereafter, the Guardians begin a two part mission in the Universe: 1) To clean up all miscreants, primarily the Empire of Tears which they entomb on the planet Ysmault, 2) Gather up all the magic in the cosmos into the heart of a star. This Starheart would eventually become sentient.

    3,000,000,000 Years Ago: The Manhunters are created by the Guardians, which is quickly regarded as a failed experiment -- particularly after the Massacre of Sector 666 -- and jettisoned when they launch an insurrection against the Guardians. When the Guardians elect to only banish the beaten Manhunters weaponless back to the worlds they made home instead of terminate them completely, a splinter group of Guardians head on an exodus from Oa to become known as the Controllers. Soon afterward the Green Lantern Corps are formed. Rori Dag of Rojira is chosen as the first Green Lantern.

    2,500,000,000 Years Ago: Oan race splits along gender lines: females evolve into Zamarons and settle on Zamaron. Without males now, the Zamarons eventually seek out the males of the planet Korugar. Using their mental acuity as inherent in them as in their former Oan/Malthusian mates, they consciously stripped themselves of their Blue energy and augmented the Crimson energy of their new Korugar lovers. Storing the Blue energy in the haronic convergences of music in a manner known only to themselves, when they called it forth ot mingle with their rosy emotions in the facent of certain star sapphires, the Zamarons controlled a Violet light which enabled them to conquer yet another world.

    1,000,000,000 Years Ago: Deciding against bringing back the Zamarons and punishing them as some of the Guardians wished, other Guardians decided to create a safeguard against this retaliation. The Guardians swore that whatever the provocation, no Zamaron or Korugarian would ever suffer more than confinement at their hands or at the hands of their agents. The cost for breaking this new law would cause their Central Power Battery on Oa to return to the nothingness from which they had created it.

    2,000 Years Ago: The Starheart, free now to roam the cosmos, drifts to Earth. Yalan Gur of Sector 2814 was nearly killed by a yellow beast. The Guardians of the Universe removed the yellow impurity from Yalan Guy's ring. Without any weakness, however, Yalan became arrogant and believed himself invincible, so the Guardians gave his ring a weakness against Wood instead. Burning up in atmospheric re-entry of Earth, fusing with his battery and perhaps the falling Starheart itself, Yalan's ring and spirit become one with the Starheart.

    69 Years Ago: Alan Scott begins his crime-fighting career as "The Green Lantern" after welding a Lantern from the Starheart he uncovers in 1939. He comes up with the name by chance and has no idea there is a Green Lantern Corps of 3,600 members patrolling the universe.

    [I mention this just as a footnote and to better explain my frame of reference: recently in Geoff Johns' Booster Gold #1 we see Sinestro, as a Green Lantern still, on Korugar as well as a teenaged, non-Green Lantern Katma Tui... this is listed as "Eight Years Ago"]

    7 Years Ago: Hal Jordan is chosen by a dying Abin Sur to become Green Lantern of Sector 2814. After training with Kilowog and Sinestro, Hal is a founding member of the Justice League of America.

    6 Years Ago: Hal Jordan and Oliver Queen go on adventures together around the Earth. John Stewart becomes Hal Jordan's reserve Green Lantern. Not long afterward, Hal Jordan temporarily gives up being Green Lantern and John Stewart becomes activated full-time.

    5 Years Ago: The events of "Crisis on Infinite Earths" occurs -- Guy Gardner becomes activated as a Green Lantern. A dying Tomar Re's last wishes are honored and Hal Jordan becomes Green Lantern of Sector 2814 again. John Stewart marries fellow GL Katma Tui. The events of "Millennium" (during which the Guardians leave their posts with the Zamarons into parts unknown to mate) and "Invasion!" (by the Dominators) occur shortly afterward. Sinestro is executed on Oa by Green Lanterns, violating the law/oath the Guardians took 1,000,000,000 years prior -- the Central Power Battery immediately begins to decay. Entering it, Hal Jordan encounters Sinestro, whose consciousness has merged with the Battery temporarily, and first encounters the Yellow Impurity within the Battery. The Central Power Battery's decay is halted, but while it is able to sustain the existing power rings out there, is now unable to generate new rings.

    4 Years Ago: Katma Tui-Stewart is murdered by Star Sapphire/Carol Ferris. The events of "The Cosmic Odyssey" occur -- John Stewart fails to stop the destruction of the planet Xanshi and all of its inhabitants. The events of "Third Law" occur. The events of "Trinity" occur.

    3 Years Ago: The events of "Mosaic" occur -- John Stewart becoming overseer of a melting pot of alien cultures on the planet Oa. Ultimately John Stewart is made into a Guardian, and resurrects Katma Tui. The events of "Reign of the Superman" occurs -- Coast City is atomized by the Cyborg-Superman and Mongul I. "Emerald Twilight" occurs -- Hal Jordan becomes insane as he falls under the influence (then total possession) of the living incarnation of fear, Parallax. The Central Power Battery on Oa is destroyed, the Guardians (save for Ganthet) sacrifice their lives, and the entire Green Lantern Corps is rendered defunct. Kyle Rayner becomes the only Green Lantern (his Power Battery made from a piece of Oa, and with Parallax free of the Central Power Battery he has no Yellow weakness). "Zero Hour" occurs -- Hal as Parallax recreates Time before being stopped by a gathering of superheroes; Oa is destroyed by Kyle Rayner in an attempt to stop Hal Jordan. The events of "The Final Night" occur: Hal Jordan sacrifices himself to save the Earth from a Sun-Eater.

    2 Years Ago: The events of "The Day of Judgment" occurs -- Hal Jordan becomes the Spectre. Kyle Rayner temporarily becomes host to the living incarnation of willpower, Ion, and resurrects the Guardians while Tom Kalmaku (with the help of Hal Jordan, as the Spectre) recreates the world of Oa in the events of "Legacy: Last Will & Testament of Hal Jordan."

    1 Year Ago: The events of "Rebirth" occur -- Hal Jordan is resurrected and the Parallax and Spectre entities cast out of him; Parallax is put back into the Central Power Battery; Hal again becomes a Green Lantern as the Corps begin to rebuild (now going for 7,200 members instead of 3,600); trained Green Lanterns can now overcome their Yellow Weakness (restored, with Parallax back in the Central Power Battery) if they are conscious of its source: the Parallax entity. The events of "Infinite Crisis" unfold -- the Multiverse is recreated as 52 seperate universes; 52 Monitors are borne to watch over the Multiverse; the Anti-Monitor is resurrected in the Anti-Matter Universe. Kyle Rayner again becomes host to the living incarnation of willpower, Ion. The Sinestro Corps forms on Qward. The Star Sapphire Corps forms on Zamaron.

    Present: Oa, now at the center of the universe, is fortified with orbital armor around it in the shape of a gigantic Lantern. The events of "The Sinestro Corps War" occur -- after a short time being possessed by a freed Parallax, Kyle Rayner becomes a regular Green Lantern again; Sodam Yat receives the Ion entity; though Parallax is divided and kept inside four regular power batteries, unskilled Green Lanterns maintain their Yellow Weakness because Parallax's long presence in the Central Power Battery has tainted the spectrum; former Guardians Ganthet and Sayd form the Blue Lantern Corps. The Red Lantern Corps form on Ysmault. The events of "Final Crisis" occur. The events leading up to "Blackest Night" occur.

    5700 A.D.: Hal Jordan and later Salaak in the younger years of their Green Lantern careers spend time in this century in service as Pol Manning.

    Late 30th Century: A time-displaced Kyle Rayner catches a glimpse of a ragtag group of bandits falsely calling themselves the Green Lantern Corps. During this encounter Cary Wren, a homeless resident of the 30th century, turns out to be Kyle's descendant and is able to temporarily wield Kyle's power ring.

    31st Century: A shattered Central Power Battery on Oa and two sole remaining Green Lanterns (one of them is Rond Vidar, The other is Sodom Yat; The Last Guardian of the Universe) are all that remain of the Green Lantern Corps. Rond Vidar is killed by Superboy Prime leaving Sodom Yat the sole represenative of the GLC legacy
