Bill Baggett was a small time hood who managed to learn that the Green Lantern's ring relied on willpower. Baggett found Hal's Power Ring and used it to his own personal gain. He was defeated by the Green Lantern who managed to over-power Baggett by showing superior willpower.

Baggett spent his prison time learning how to maximize his willpower so that he could use it to his advantage once he escaped from prison. Upon his release months later, Baggett followed Green Lantern to Evergreen City. There, Baggett used his superior willpower to access the ring remotely to steal money and also trip up the Green Lantern. The hero figured this plot out and eventually capture Baggett, turning him over to the police.
