- You are within direct range of my emotional aura, Green Lantern. I am charging your band of will. It is at full capacity and will remain so as long as I hope for your well being. And I will always hope. Until my last dying breath.
- -- Saint Walker src
The being given the title of "Saint" Bro'Dee Walker on his home world located in space Sector 0001, is the very first being to be initiated into the Blue Lantern Corps. He is sought out by Ganthet and Sayd, the Guardians of Hope, and brought back to the Blue Lantern Corps home world of Odym. While on Odym Bro'Dee Walker spent several days with the Guardians to be evaluated so they can truly judge whether he is worthy of becoming a member of their Blue Lantern Corps or not. They explained to him what it truly means to be a Blue Lantern wielding the power of hope and to join their cause. Each Blue Lantern is responsible for choosing the next Blue Lantern from the next sector where upon they are brought to Odym to be evaluated by Ganthet and Sayd. After his acceptance into the Blue Lantern Corps Saint Walker then brought Warth of Sector 0002 to Odym.
In order to become a Blue Lantern one must be willing to give of themselves completely to the universe. Saint Walker is able to inspire hope in others, and will hope until the day he dies. Unlike other corps, their blue ring does not need to be charged and does not run out of power. It is fueled directly by the hope of the people they seek out to help and save.
During the Green Lantern prison transport of Sinestro to his home world of Korugar for execution the Green Lanterns were ambushed by a group of Sinestro Corps members attempting to free Sinestro. While Sinestro's Corps attempted to free him, Atrocitus and his Red Lanterns attacked kidnapping Sinestro and taking him back to their base planet of Ysmault. During the Red Lantern's assault on the Green Lanterns, their liquid red flame was able to burn through their aura shield and infect them with their rage. Only Saint Walker's blue light of hope was able to wash over the Green Lanterns and extinguish the lingering red flame infecting them.
Saint Waker later helps Hal Jordan in Ysmault, freeing Jordan from the influence of the red ring giving him a blue ring. Jordan temporaly becomes a Blue Lantern/Green Lantern hybrid. Later, in Odym, Jordan demands that Ganthet must take out the blue ring from him. However, the ring cannot be taken out until its energy is drained out. Later, Jordan leaves Odym. After facing Larfleeze and his Orange Lantern Corps, the Guardians of the Universe reveal Odym location to Larfleeze, because he wants a blue ring. Larfleeze starts an invasion to Odym with his Orange Lanterns.Carol Ferris and Sinestro arrived to ask for Saint Walker's help. Having joined Hal Jordan and Indigo-1's efforts to rally one member of each Corps to attempt to destroy the Black Lantern power battery, Saint Walker agrees to use his power ring to ease Larfleeze's hunger while they work together. When Deputising an Earth hero to assist in the current crisis until the rest of the Blue Lantern Corps can arrive, Walker's ring selects Barry Allen as a temporary Blue Lantern. After Nekron has been defeated, Walker works with Carol Ferris to heal Mera of the influence of her red power ring.
Brightest Day and beyond
Saint Walker helps to rebuild the profanated graves in Earth. Later, he is seen helping the JLA in the fight against Eclipso and attempts to assist the resurrected Hank Henshaw against Doomsday on Batman's orders, although Doomsday still manages to escape.
Saint Walker and the rest of the New Guardians make their way to planet Ryut. Krona and the Emotional Entities are nowhere to be found but the group does come upon the Book of the Black. When former Sinestro Corps member Lyssa Drak appears, she quickly subdues the New Guardians, trapping all but Hal in the Book of the Black. Hal escapes with the rings of the New Guardians; Walker's ring is passed onto Kyle Rayner when Krona infects the Central Power Battery with Parallax to bring the Green Lantern Corps under his influence.
The DC Universe heavily changed its continuity into the DCnU following the events of Flashpoint in 2011. This was part of an effort to make storylines more accessible to newer readers, beginning with the New 52. This new timeline combines elements from the DCU, Vertigo Universe and Wildstorm Universe while drastically changing the origins and histories of characters.

with strong hearts full, our souls ignite!

look to the stars, for hope burns bright!
