ooc; Well for one, Sinestro is a huge control freak so I’m sure if he were to allow some entity to use his body as host he’d fight tooth and nail to not become a puppet. That and considering the fact he was imprisoned within the Central Green Lantern Battery when Parallax was in it too, they both got to know each other extremely well so that probably helped him.
Him being one of the strongest willed lanterns in not just the GLC, but the universe doesn’t hurt either.
I’m sure being able to understand both willpower and fear like the back of his hand would probably help in not just keeping control of himself, but also keep any influence Parallax tries to instill in him to a minimum too.
Sinestro is beyond seeing himself as a villain or hero. In his mind, even the greatest hero must act in a villainous fashion in order to succeed. If anything, he sees himself as a returning king who has come to redeem his people — and himself in the process.
If Sinestro’s motivation could be boiled down to one overriding concept, it would be pride. His pride carries him, often when nothing else will. His pride has also been his undoing from time to time. He’s too proud to ever accept that his way is not the right way.

Yeah. I kinda see that. Dude has problems with ego and perfectionism

Sinestro’s face-to-face with the Yellow Lanterns, the Corps he built in his own image – but does he like what he sees? Or does he look upon his works and despair? It’s time to find out if the Sinestro Corps is strong enough for the mission he has in mind for them – and if they’re not, then they won’t stand a chance against the growing threat of the Pale Vicars!
Sinestro Writer Gives New Details On Upcoming Series
Expect Sinestro to try to “right the ship”.
That is what writer Cullen Bunn tells us is going to…
A fragment of interest to us:
Bunn would go on to say at the beginning of the series Sinestro would be in a poor state of mind. “He’s lost everything, his world, his people. He feels there is no redemption for him.” That is until his daughter Soranik Natu, who looks to play a prominent role in the series, shows up and gives him a push forward.
Don’t give up, Hal! It’s #GreenLanternDay!
