First Appearance: Tales of the Green Lantern Corps #2 (June 1981): "Defeat!"


   Galius Zed first met Hal Jordan of Earth, during the war against Krona and Nekron. A noble Green Lantern, Galius participated in many adventures with the Corps. He served as part of the invasion force sent to Qward to destroy the Anti-Green Lantern Corps.
[Tales of the Green Lantern Corps #1-3, Green Lantern Vol. 2 #150]

   Obviously trusted by the Guardians of the Universe, he was asked to take part in a "psychodrama" designed to test Hal Jordan's capabilities as a Green Lantern.
[Green Lantern Vol. 2 #165-167]

   He survived the so-called Crisis on Infinite Earths, and presumably lost his power ring after the Trial of Sinestro and the subsequent collapse of the Main Power Battery on Oa.
[Green Lantern Vol. 2 #199, 222-224]

   After the destruction of the Green Lantern Corps, John Stewart was chosen by the Controllers for the Darkstars. To fill the void left by the Corps, Stewart recruited a number of former Green Lanterns, including Varix, Charlie Vicker, Hollika Rahn and Galius Zed.
[Darkstars #27]

   Their first mission was to Talyn, a planet which had been devastated by Psi-Mon. Galius Zed later went to Earth to drive off an alien crime syndicate.
[Darkstars #28, 32]

   Shortly after the Controllers abandoned the Darkstar project, there arose a new threat to the galaxy. Gravyen, the third son of Darkseid, had carved a path of destrution across the Milky Way galaxy. Though they numbered only eighteen, the few Darkstars with power armor took a stand on Rann.

   The Darkstars were brutally attacked in a surprise assault. Charlie Vicker was cut down by one of Grayven's army. Eventually, John Stewart and Kyle Rayner managed to defeat Grayven by blasting him with a Mega Zeta beam cannon.

   Galius Zed, Munchukk, Chaser Bron, and Ferrin Colos remained on Rann to help Adam Strange rebuild the battered city of Ranagar.
[Green Lantern Vol. 3 #74-#75]

   The Darkstars were soon needed to fight once more, this time against the threat of Hyathis. The would-be Empress of Rann used mind control to pitt the Zaredians against the Darkstars, creating a diversion while she kidnapped Aleea, the daughter of Adam Strange. Hyanthis might have suceeded but for the arrival of Superboy and the Ravers. Her plans were crushed again.
[Superboy and the Ravers #3-#4]

   Though Superboy and the Ravers had saved the day, it was still a victory for the Darkstars. They had gained acceptance from the city-state of Zared, a longtime enemy of Ranagar.

   Galius Zed had little time to celebrate this victory, he was killed by the woman known as Fatality. She was stalkng ex-Green Lanterns across the universe, killing them in her quest for vengeance. Fatality's ultimate target was on Earth, former Green Lantern John Stewart.
[Green Lantern Vol. 3 #82-#83]

   Galius Zed is memorialized in the Crypts of the Green Lantern Corps on Oa.
