The Global Guardians are a team of international heroes assembled by Dr. Mist to police the world. For a time, they were officially sponsored by the UNITED NATIONS. Once the U.N. withdrew support from the team in favor of the JUSTICE LEAGUE, the Guardians found themselves fractured and often manipulated by villainous forces.
Booster Gold usually encountered members of the Global Guardians as foes, working for Bialya's QUEEN BEE or SONAR (though longtime teammates Fire and Ice (see FIRE & ICE) were one-time members of the Guardians before joining the Justice League International).

Encounters with Booster Gold: 37
Belligerent to a fault, Guy Gardner has been a school teacher, lawyer, restaurateur, Green Lantern (as Green Lantern IV), Vuldarian Warrior, and all around jerk.
Booster Gold first met Guy Gardner when both were simultaneous members the UNITED NATIONS sponsored JUSTICE LEAGUE. The two have had a long and tempestuous relationship, mainly because Gardner is extremely reluctant to participate as an equal member of a team. In fact, Gardner has been as much opponent to the Justice League as he has helped them, a situation only worsened by the infiltration of the League by Guy's evil clone, Enforcer. Gardner unintentionally brought Kraggz Tormock drones to the Justice League Refuge while learning to deal with his Vuldarian powers.
Despite his surly nature, Guy Gardner has developed several close and loyal friends over the years, including Buck Wargo, Rita Muldoon, and Tiger-Man II.
