The Black Lantern Corps consisted of various slain and deceased beings throughout the universe who fell into the domain of the dead. There, they were used by the Lord of The Unliving, Nekron as part of a plan to wage a war against the Emotional Spectrum. The Blackest Night Prophecy spoken by Qull of the Five Inversions foretold of The Blackest Night where the enemies of the Guardians of the Universe would rise up against them and destroy their great work. Abin Sur attempted to stop the prophecy from coming to pass and took the demon Atrocitus to Earth in order to find the bearer of "The Black". Though Abin Sur died, Atrocitus managed to discover William Hand and sought to claim the power he would unleash but the red skinned alien was defeated by Hal Jordan and Sinestro. Under the leadership of Sinestro, the Anti-Monitor , Superman-Prime , Cyborg Superman , and Parallax , the Sinestro Corps waged the most substantial battle of the Sinestro Corps War on the planet Earth, home to many of the superheroes that have thwarted the domination of its members time and time again.
Even if you've got a good handle on the admittedly complicated backstory to Blackest Night, that still leaves seven new Corps to keep track of. The colors themselves are actually fairly easy to remember, as they're the same as the colors of the rainbow. Well, that and the black light of the Black Lantern Corps. That's probably important as well. In an interview with Publisher's Weekly about a month ago, Geoff Johns provided one of his clearest explanations for the mechanics of the various colors.
At some point, he came to the planet Nok that was being besieged by aggressive explorers that had enslaved the native inhabitants. Amongst these was a being called Natromo who along with his people had uncovered a wellspring to the power of compassion within a cavern where it emerged from an unknown source from deep within the planet. They coated their weapons in the Indigo Light, and realized that their attackers struck by it suddenly felt remorse as well as regret over their actions. To accomplish that, the two harnessed compassion to create the Indigo Lantern Power Ring. Once crafted, Abin Sur departed the world only to return with a criminal called Iroque who was forcibly given the Power Ring. The former criminal suddenly felt remorse over her actions and became a completely changed individual. Seeing the result, Abin Sur began collecting other criminals from across space and fitted them with these Power Rings thus forming the Indigo Tribe in order to fight The Blackest Night as had been prophecised.
