Despotellis is an extraterrestrial comic supervillain that features in DC Comics.
Despotellis first appeared at the end of Green Lantern Corps #10, surrounding sentient planet and Green Lantern Corps member Mogo. Despotellis is a microscopic sentient virus and one of the most dangerous and horrific members of the Sinestro Corps. The virus can attack Green Lanterns from the inside and kill them before realize its inside them and transform entire planets into rotting graveyards. It likely does this by producing non-sentient copies of itself.
Currently Despotellis is responsible for the death of Reemuz, Green Lantern of space sector 119 and 85 percent of the inhabited planets in that sector; he began this campaign purely to inspire fear in that sector. He is currently infecting Mogo.
It was recently revealed, in the Sinestro Corps special, that Despotellis was responsible for the death of Kyle Rayner's mother.<ref>Green Lantern: Sinestro Corps one-shot</ref>
Despotellis infected Guy Gardner in Green Lantern #25 and was later destroyed by Leezle Pon, a Green Lantern Smallpox Virus who was also Reemuz's old partner.
