Guy Gardner was born in 1977. He became one of the three Green Lanterns from Earth in 2003 and was infamous for not liking anyone. He soon fell into a coma. Seven years later, in March Team Year Zero, Gardner awoke and resumed his duties. On October 1, 16:58 Pacific Daylight Time (PDT), Team Year Zero, the 33 year old Gardner saved a loaded school bus tossed over a bridge in Star City. On November 25th, Flash nominated Gardner to join the Justice League but was quickly turned down by Hal Jordan and John Stewart.

Gardner was eventually inducted to the Justice League in Team Year Two. He was assigned the designation 24. He met the newest Blue Beetle at some point before December 1 Team Year Five and begrudgingly admitted to liking him. Gardner's testimony, along with Peacemaker and Captain Atom's led to Blue Beetle being recruited to the Team. In Team Year Six, while on Oa with Hal Jordan, Gardner was sent to Rimbor to make sure the High Court knew the Justice League was coming in peace and expected a fair trial. On June 20th, Gardner returned to Earth along with everyone else who left for Rimbor. He attended Wally West's funeral. On July 4th, Gardner, Stewart, and Jordan escorted the Reach delegation to Oa to stand trial for breaching their peace treaty with the Guardians of the Universe.

On November 3rd, 23:16 UTC, Team Year Eight, Gardner was part of a group of Justice Leaguers on Thanagar looking into a raid on an Nth Metal refinery. He was amused his ring would not translate Hro Talek's use of the "kakash" swear word. Superman cut him off before he could reveal what it meant. He was also amused Talek scanned their bio signs to confirm they were not part of the raid. On the sly, Gardner used his ring to scan the area and discovered an ion trail from the attacking ship. He took offense when Talek referred to them as Hawkman and Hawkwoman's sidekicks. After they were dismissed, Gardner encased everyone in a bubble construct and flew back to the Javelin but he took the chance to shift the bubble into a nondescript face blowing a raspberry. He asked who was the kakash now. They yelled at him. He revealed his discovery and asked them if they kind of wanted to kiss the ring. They all yelled at him. On November 6th, 19:12 UTC, Gardner flew ahead of the Javelin and sang an annoying song of his own creation.

On November 7th, 01:20 UTC, the League engaged the Orphanage. Gardner generated a shield construct and admitted Apokoliptian cannon fire was no joke then patted himself on the back for being present to cover the League's butts. Superman, Wonder Woman, and Hawkwoman infiltrated the ship but were soon boomed into space by Granny Goodness. Gardner formed a bubble construct around them to prevent death by asphyxiation. He called them show boats and scolded them for leaving all the hard work to him. They watched as the Orphanage fled the area through a giant Boom Tube. On January 25th, 22:25 UTC, Team Year Nine, the three Green Lanterns encapsulated the Orphanage in a construct to prevent it from escaping by Boom Tube again. He then gave Elongated Man the signal but couldn't resist calling him "Slongated Man" instead. He agreed it was suspicious there were no counter measures being deployed and wondered who was trapping who. Granny Goodness activated her machine and enthralled them to the Anti-Life Equation.

On January 26th, after 01:17 UTC, the enthralled Gardner was present at the machine when the Team tried to rescue Halo and were enthralled, too. At 02:48 UTC, the three Lanterns were already on the floor due to being normal humans under the sway of Anti-Life. Everyone was liberated by Halo after she was freed by Victor Stone. They promptly destroyed the machine. The three Lanterns formed a construct to contain the explosion. Gardner told them to admit they would all be chipped beef on toast without him. After Granny Goodness fled the ship, the Lanterns gathered Lashina, Gilotina, and Mantis in bubble constructs. On February 24th, 19:00 EST, Gardner spoke for the group of Leaguers on the Javelin who were conferenced into a meeting of the League, Team, Outsiders, and Batman and Nightwing's covert teams on the Watchtower. Nightwing hailed the Javelin. Gardner confirmed the presence of three Lanterns, two Hawks, a Martian, a Captain, a Doctor, a Devil, Magog, Steel, Icon, Fire, Ice, and "Flongated Man." Elongated Man corrected him. Gardner hoped the poozers on the Watchtower made it worth their while. He voted for Black Lightning to be the next leader of the League.
