Appa Ali Apsa is one of the Guardians of the Universe. Appa's personality is much like his nickname "Old Timer." He is a strict adherent of logic and order. Appa often clashes with the Green Lantern Hal Jordan, who constantly and openly defies authority. Although the decision was passed unanimously, Apsa was not pleased Jordan and Kilowog were officialy given command of the Interceptor and order to being gathering intelligence on the Red Lantern Corps as the ship was taken without permission.

Appa became alarmed when Ganthet revealed he allowed Jordan to steal the Interceptor then placed a prototype battery on it. When he came to conclusion emotion clouded Ganthet's judgement, Appa charged Ganthet with breach of trust and had him banished from Oa. To Appa, keeping the Forgotten Zone secret from Guardian Space meant restraining chaos and war at the cost of one planet, Betrassus. He later shared the Guardians' findings on the Red Lantern file stolen by Aya and tasked Jordan's group with destroying the Lighthouse before the Red Lanterns could use it to travel to Guardian space. In the aftermath of Atrocitus' failed assassination attempt, Appa volunteered to go to the Forgotten Zone and help with rebuilding. He thanked Hal Jordan for saving the day as the hero sped off for Earth. Appa soon summoned Jordan back to Oa to inform him he had been promoted to the Green Lantern Corps Honor Guard.

A week later, Appa took Hal Jordan and Tomar-Re's report into consideration. Despite the Science Branch concluding the appearances of Manhunters were isolated incidents, Appa assigned Jordan to gather more intelligence and map it out. He even granted Jordan permission to use the Interceptor so he could cover more ground faster. Appa was infuriated Jordan allowed Aya to reassemble itself and to meld with the Anti-Monitor. He ordered the Interceptor crew to land somewhere and install a software patch in order to use the ultrawarp drive properly then make a jump to Oa. Once on Oa, the crew listened to Appa's tirade and he forbid them from any further involvement in the Aya-Monitor crisis. A short time later, Appa was alerted to a Guardians' quarters breach. He rushed to the Science Director's quarters and found only Sayd in the Director's hidden inner sanctum. A short time later, Appa dispatched Jordan's group to Ranx and if Aya was after something, they were clear to use any force necessary to stop her. As Aya prepared to remake the universe, Appa addressed the Corps before they left for Maltus for what was believed to be the final battle.
