B'dg (pronounced like "Badge") was one of several thousand beings recruited by the Guardians to reform the Green Lantern Corps. He began his training under Kilowog and met Hal Jordan, but like many of the rookie lanterns he had no idea of Jordan's checkered past. B'dg and several of his fellow trainees were surprised that someone from a backward planet like Earth had become a member of the Corps. B'dg showed some knowledge of Earth's geography when he found Kilowog's comment that Jordan was not only pathetically human, but also an American, extremely funny.
B'dg was somewhat perplexed that his power ring did not work on anything yellow, and reported the flaw at a trainee briefing, saying there was "something wrong" with his ring. Kyle Rayner, assigned as an instructor at the time, told him the flaw was "a rookie thing."
When the Spider Guild attacked Oa utilizing yellow-colored space vessels, B'dg and his fellow trainees were called into action. Initially unable to affect the yellow ships, B'dg received field instruction from Guy Gardner on how to overcome the yellow weakness of his ring. B'dg successfully overcame the yellow defect by understanding fear and overcoming it, and he and his fellow Corps members successfully repelled the invasion. B'dg later participated in the defense of Oa from the attack of Superboy-Prime.
One year after the Infinite Crisis event, B'dg earned his badge and is now a full-fledged member of the Green Lantern Corps. He continues to spend time on Oa and has been depicted enjoying the cuisine of the Level 3006 canteen and also welcoming the Green Lanterns rescued from the Cyborg Superman.
During the Sinestro Corps War, B'dg helps defend Oa against the initial attack of the Yellow Lanterns. He can be seen executing the "acorn attack" move, previously used by his predecessor, Ch'p. He later participates in the final battle on Earth, joining the Lost Lanterns in defending Coast City.
