    Controllers (DC)
Search for 'Controllers (DC)' on Amazon

Bio:
The Controllers use various machines to accomplish their task of destroying evil. These machines include the creation of Sun Eaters, as well as the Miracle Machine which possess the ability to transform thought into reality.

Once part of the Maltusian race, the Maltusians split becoming the Oans and the Controllers. Distraught over the Krona incident, the group that would eventually become the Oans hoped to contain evil, but the Controllers wished to destroy it.

Eventually, the Controllers would create a race of defenders to compete with the Oan's Green Lantern Corps when the Controllers created the Darkstars.

Originally, a rogue Controller became the Time Trapper, however with multiple retcons, it is currently unlikely that this is the case. Appears behind the scenes in Adventure Comics #352.

In the Final Crisis storyline, the Controllers were revealed to survive into the 29th century, at which time they develop the Miracle Machine, whose schematics Superman memorizes upon a visit to the 31st century.

In the Blackest Night storyline, a small group of Controllers appeared in search of the "orange light of avarice," hoping to create their own Corps. This group locates the orange light on the planet Okaara, but they are slaughtered by Larfleeze, and assimilated as constructs in his Orange Lantern Corps.
