Joining the Green Lantern Corps
Invasion of Earth and death
When General Steppenwolf of Apokolips attempted to invade Earth, Gur arrived to aid the humans, Amazons, and Atlanteans in driving back hordes of Parademons. As the battle commenced, Gur rose into the air, manifesting a gigantic warhammer from his ring's energy as he dove into the incoming Parademons. As the battle drew the attention of the Olympians, who descended from their realm to help, Gur was knocked down and impaled by Steppenwolf's Electro Axe. Mere moments after his death, his Green Lantern Ring flew from his hand and back into space.

Behind the scenes
- In DC Comics, Yalan Gur was the first Green Lantern of Sector 2814, and one of the greatest Green Lanterns of the corps - so much so that the Guardians chose to remove the weakness of the color yellow from his ring - until he eventually became corrupted by his own power before merging with his Power Battery. This led to the creation of the Starheart.
