Ed's Notes: Ah, good old Appa Ali Apsa... The Judas Iscariot / Shiv Palpatine / Dru-Zod of the Guardians of the Universe.  This guy's about as tough an adversary as they come, on par with Darkseid or Doomsday. He's destroyed worlds and created his own planets.  He's one of the most powerful Guardians, and could easily challenge the full Justice League.  

In the Atlas of the DCU, his stats were identical to the "Typical Guardians," save for a Dex of 5 and and Str of 3, which... ironically 3rd edition puts back down to the "typical" level. Lol.

2nd Edition also included: 

Limitations: Miscellaneous: Force manipulation is reduced by 1 AP for every week a Guardian is away from Oa.

under his entry in the Atlas, and since it's mentioned in the 3rd Edition Guardians' entry, I assume it applies to him as well.  (Unless he found a different source of Power and the 2nd Edition listed it in error?) Could be a story point. ;)
