Fictional character biography

Zilius Zox is an alien that was born on the planet Noc'seg and is from the same alien race as Galius Zed. He is among the aliens that received the Red Power Ring from Atrocitus when he was assembling the Red Lantern Corps. During the Final Crisis storyline, Zilius Zox was with the Red Lantern Corps when it came to their mission to abduct Sinestro from a Green Lantern Corps escort to Kurogar. During the fight between the Green Lantern Corps and the Red Lantern Corps, the Sinestro Corps showed up in an attempt to free their leader. A Sinestro Corps member from Sector 2023 ended up devoured by Zilius Zox. When the Red Lantern Corps were successful in abducting Sinestro, Zilius Zox and the other Red Lantern Corps members were told by Atrocitus not to kill Sinestro as they need his blood to make more Red Power Rings.[1]

Atrocitus later throws Zilius Zox into the blood ocean in an attempt to restore his intelligence like Bleez.[2]

Powers and abilities

Zilius Zox wields a Red Lantern power ring similar to that of a Green Lantern's, save that it is powered by rage rather than willpower. The full extent of a red power ring's powers has not been revealed, but it is stated in Final Crisis: Rage of the Red Lanterns that the red ring acts as their heart and pumps their rage-tainted blood out of their body through their mouth. While initially unable to do so, Atrocitus learned to create red light constructs after observing the other lanterns during the Blackest Night.
