Quote:And its a high showing for Sinestro. Not low showing for Parallax.
You can only tell the difference if either Sinestro or Parallax can be compared to a third party in the story, otherwise it can be both a high showing for Sinestro and a low showing for Parallax. The closest to a third party comparison we get is Superman, but there's still not that much to go on. Sinestro deflects Superman's heat vision and Superman takes Sinestro's ring. Superman then sucks up Parallax in the ring. That points a little more toward Parallax looking weak than to Sinestro looking strong.
