Appa Ali Apsa has all the powers of the Green Lantern Power Ring which has rightly been called the most powerful weapon in the universe. He has the ability to shape a form of emerald energy to form physical constructs such as force bubbles, giant sized fists, body armour, etc. These forms are limited via the imagination and the will power of the user. He has life support in hostile environments and can support any other persons he chooses. The power can propel him through space at many times the speed of light and can open up space warps. His abilities are only limited by his mind.
Appa Ali Apsa, a.k.a. the Old-Timer, was one of the immortal Guardians of the Universe, creators of the law keeping Green Lantern Corps. After Green Arrow had pointed out to the Guardians that they were too distanced from the mortals they had sworn to protect, the Guardians chose Appa Ali Apsa as their representative to experience life on Earth. Travelling across the USA with Green Lantern Hal Jordan and Green Arrow, Appa experienced many adventures and learned some valuable lessons about life. He later renounced his Guardian title and chose to travel the universe. Shortly after the Crisis, the Guardians withdrew from this universe to mate with the Zamarons, but Appa Ali Apsa chose to remain alone on the planet Oa. However, the isolation made him slowly lose his mind.
