Sinestro was once considered among the best members of the GREEN LANTERN CORPS until it was discovered that he had abused his power to dominate his homeworld of Korugar.

Though a time-traveling Booster Gold met Sinestro before he went rogue, the two still ended up fighting. Booster just has that effect on people.

Booster Gold joined Sinestro Corps members Akrillo, Bedovan, Karu-Sil, Kayb, Maash, Murr the Melting Man, Romat Ru, Slushh, Tekik, and Tri-Eye when the united spectrum of lantern corps (AGENT ORANGE, BLUE LANTERN CORPS, Green Lantern Corps, INDIGO TRIBE, RED LANTERN CORPS, Sinestro Corps, and the Star Sapphires [see STAR SAPPHIRE]) in a desperate bid to save all living things from the BLACK LANTERN CORPS.

Booster Gold's first adventure after losing his powers to DOOMSDAY was alongside the JUSTICE LEAGUE against Sonar, who had taken over Russia. Sonar used his mind control powers to manipulate Baron Bedlam, Copperhead, Crime Tailor, EUROCRIME, the GLOBAL GUARDIANS, the Rocket Red Brigade (see HEROES OF THE SOVIET UNION), and members of the Justice League Europe and the JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA into an army powerful enough to dominate the Soviet Union.
