Monsieur Stigmonus

Monsieur Stigmonus is a DC Comics supervillain. Created by J. M. DeMatteis and Ryan Sook, he first appeared in The Spectre Vol. 4, #6. Monsieur Stigmonus first appeared in the pages of The Spectre, during a three-part story entitled "The Redeemer", which featured Hal Jordan in the role of the Spirit of Vengeance, a role he was coming to terms with. Under the influence of writer J. M. DeMatteis, Jordan was questioning the need for vengeance from an all-loving God and became more a Spirit of Redemption. However, he needed a foil to counter this developing belief structure and Stigmonus became said nemesis. Ryan Sook provided the look of Stigmonus, a pale white humanoid with a black goatee, yin/yang encased on his forehead, dressed in the high fashion of the 18th century. Monsieur Stigmonus appeared out of nowhere and started tormenting the Spectre Hal Jordan, trying to figure out his place in the universe. Jordan was trying to resist the Logoz's need for wrath and vengeance, learning to develop an understanding that humanity may be in more need of a Spirit of Redemption than a Spirit of Vengeance.

During this critical point of Jordan's new role, Stigmonus emerged to cast doubt on this new point of view. Stigmonus showed Jordan examples of humanity's cruelty and selfishness as if to make the point that it isn’t worth saving, he mocked Jordan's belief that he could make a difference and pointed out that Jesus was crucified. Jordan, still doubting a great deal in himself, the Presence, his duty, reverted to his old ways as a human Green Lantern and fought with Stigmonus. After defeating him, Jordan sought the advice and wisdom of the Risen. Meanwhile, quite fine, initiated the next step in pushing Hal Jordan to see his perspective, he visited Helen Jordan, Hal's niece, took her on a cosmic trip, explaining to her the unfairness of life, the universe, everything. Jack Jordan and Jan Jordan, Helen's parents and Hal's brother and sister-in-law, discovered their daughter's disappearance and frantically went in search of her. Hal confronted him. Stigmonus showed Hal two possible futures for Helen: one in which she would grow to be “The Redeemer”, a being who would “lead this planet out of misery and into the Golden Age”, another in which, one way or another, “she’ll come to a tragic end,” depicted as being by her own hand.

Stigmonus offered Jordan a wager in which they’d both try to push young Helen toward the path they preferred and they’d find out which one she succumbed to. Hal refused to play games with his niece's life, but Stigmonus claimed he’d started playing. Jack and Helen were driving in a car and trying to find their daughter. Stigmonus appeared in the middle of the road. Jack twisted the steering wheel and the car spun out of control. “I love you, Jan” he cried. “I love y-“ Jan replied as they crashed into a freight truck. The two of them died shortly thereafter. Hal Jordan discovered this as they lay in their hospital beds and vowed vengeance upon Monsieur Stigmonus. Becoming a hideous monstrosity, Jordan attempted to make Stigmonus suffer, but realized that it only made his power grow, it was that Jordan understood that Stigmonus was a reflection of pain, doubt and hopelessness and that the only way to fight such things was to counter them with hope, goodness and forgiveness. Jordan said, “I could thank you, Stigmonus – for pushing me so far.

I see now… that I had to become you in order to transcend you.” He attempted to show Stigmonus yet another future, one of bliss and infinite potential. "The future doesn't have to be the abyss. Give humankind a chance… give yourself a chance; this is. To dream our highest dreams,” he tried to explain, but Stigmonus was unable to view the paradise. Due to his existence, Stigmonus could only see the dystopia and hopelessness of reality, and so, Jordan left him there in that alternate realm to “laugh” at him for all eternity. As Hal Jordan grew to become a true Spirit of Redemption, Monsieur Stigmonus proved to not be the gullible fool the Spectre would believe him to be, he pretended to stay put in his world of despair, but secretly escaped beyond Jordan's notice and began to plot his next move. Deep within the Spectre's temple, Hal Jordan discovered a door; this was not unusual, as his temple was a part of his psyche and changing, but this particular door seemed strange and tempting. As Hal approached it, he became engulfed by it and was sucked away from his ordinary plane of existence, landing in another world, another universe, where he never became Green Lantern, but instead married Carol Ferris and became a businessman for Ferris Aircraft following his retirement as a test pilot.

His family, unaffected by his adventures as Green Lantern, was alive and happy. It appeared that Coast City was not destroyed in this alternate reality. Upon appearing in this illusion, Hal seemed to forget his other life entirely. Meanwhile, Stigmonus resurrected the being known as Sinestro, Hal Jordan's greatest enemy during his time as a Green Lantern, he had rehabilitated Sinestro to health, and, most will. Together, they attacked a female form of the Spectre, watching over Jordan's temple and young Helen However, with the “prime” Spectre lost in a wo
