Bzzd is a member of the Green Lantern Corps.
An insectile Green Lantern no bigger than a common Earth housefly, Bzzd is nonetheless one of the most-respected members of the Corps because of his tremendous willpower. Fast and instinctive, Bzzd is a master improvisational tactician, and useful for missions that require stealth. Bzzd enjoys being underestimated, relishing the chance to disprove those who believe that size matters. For situations where his ring cannot solve the problem, Bzzd can fall back on his natural stinger, which releases venom powerful enough to incapacitate creatures many times Bzzd's size.
After dealing with a group of space pirates in Sector 2261, Bzzd was assigned to work with Isamot Kol and Vath Sarn in bringing in the renegade Guy Gardner. Gardner was falsely accused of killing a fellow Green Lantern named Quond, and fled to the planet Mogo. Bzzd knew Mogo well and proved integral to bringing Gardner to justice. Along with Kol and Sarn, Bzzd discovered that Mogo had been infected by a yellow spore with ties to the Sinestro Corps. Once infected, the spores caused a Green Lantern to act irrationally, and experience fear. Another Green Lantern infected by the spore was Kilowog. Bzzd injected Kilowog with venom from his stinger, forcing the Green Lantern to violently purge the spore from his system.
Fight against the Sinestro Corps
During the "RingQuest" affair, Bzzd and the other members of the Corps fought up against Mongul on the Black Mercy Planet in Sector 2261. Mongul maintained a strong advantage over the Corps as he was in possession of six Qwardian power rings. Bzzd flew inside of Mongul's mouth and attacked him from the inside. Releasing a series of powerful bursts of green energy, he distracted Mongul long enough for the rest of the Corps to defeat him. The task proved too much for Bzzd's physical body however and he died a hero only moments later. Upon his death, his ring sought out Matris Ater Clementia who promptly took his place in the GLC.
Bzzd was one of the many deceased Green Lanterns who's body was reanimated and sent out as an agent for the Black Lantern Corps.
