As a Green Lantern (and briefly after the Corps were disbanded), Guy Gardner wields a power ring fueled by the central battery that conforms to his will.
Before the existence of Parallax was revealed, Green Lantern rings could not affect anything yellow, a phenomenon known as the "yellow impurity." Now well-trained Lanterns such as Gardner can affect any items including yellow ones.
*** Origins ***
He graduated from (U of M) and left the school with a Bachelor's in Psychology and Education. He also took many classes in engineering as well as playing in several sports. Sadly, when he came back home to his family, things were worse than before. His brother had been kicked off the force for the extortion of several drug dealers. Apparently, Mace had been blackmailing them. Mace drowned himself in a local river apparently from depression. This event drove their father's alcoholism to a whole new level, and it ended up killing him. Guy always struggled with his anger and aggression and because of this demon he decided to use his career to help others with the same problem. Guy became a social caseworker and helped prison inmates. One of these inmates ended up being Hal Jordan. Hal was in the correctional facility because of an alcohol problem. This most likely resonated with Guy because of his own father. While Guy and Hal ware in prison during a huge prison riot, Guy lost his temper, and in a rage he attacked one of the inmates.
Guy Gardner started out as the backup Green Lantern for Hal Jordan. He has since become one of the most prominent Green Lanterns of the Corps, despite possessing an egocentric personality. He has recently deserted his Green Power Ring in favor of the Red Ring of rage. Guy's will and rage are some of the most impressive in the entire Emotional Spectrum.
Guy Gardner was originally tapped to become a Green Lantern. Eventually the ring was taken away from him. Searching for new powers brought him to the tomb of Sinestro where he gained his yellow power ring. That ring still needed to be charged with a Green Battery. So after Parallax destroyed the central battery, Guy was powerless again. Until he went in search of the Warrior Water. After drinking that water, he gained the ability to transform his body into any living weapon he could imagine. Later, he "kinda" died in Our Worlds At War, but eventually made his way back. During Green Lantern: Rebirth, the Warrior powers were pushed out of Guy's system, and he gained a brand new Green Lantern ring. He has now been given the title of Green Lantern Honor Guard and is not restricted to protect a single sector of space like other Green Lanterns.
