This Day in History: Power Outage

Once upon a time, Guy Gardner was an insufferable jerk who was so insufferable that he was actually kicked out of the Green Lantern Corps. Guy being Guy, that didn't stop him for long. In fact, he took on the entire Corps just to get his hand on Sinestro's yellow power ring, which, being Sinestro's ring, had a few quirks of its own, as Guy discovered in Guy Gardner #2, released on this date 29 years ago today.

I'd sell my soul to Neron for hair like that.

The "Panic in the Sky" story ran through several issues of the linked Superman titles in early 1992. Superman assembled a team of heroes — the Justice League being temporarily disbanded at the time — to stop Brainiac from using Warworld to conquer Earth. Booster Gold only played a small part in the story, but as we all know, a little Booster is better than none.
