During the Thanagarian invasion, Vigilante fought against the hawkmen, but was ultimately captured and imprisoned by them. Afterwards, he joined the expanded Justice League. Vigilante became good friends with Shining Knight, and his marksmanship was quite useful on several missions. He took part in the fight against Mordru, the alien nanotechnologic invasion, and intercepted Task Force X when they were trying to steal the Annihilator. Despite being a skillful gunman and fighter, Vigilante was knocked out by Rick Flagg, Jr. in hand-to-hand combat.

Vigilante was also part of the team ambushed by the group of vengeful Thanagarian warriors. He harboured some resentment towards Hawkgirl, who had been a double agent, and as a result of her betrayal, Vigilante became a prisoner of war. He recounted how he was incarcerated in a small confinement and humiliated by the Thanagarians. Nevertheless, Vigilante worked through his feelings and remained loyal to Shayera, in spite of not always seeing eye to eye with her. Even though he has no special powers, Vigilante's cunning dexterity allowed him to turn the tables on a hawkman, and hijack Paran Dul's ship. He single-handedly saved Vixen from certain death, by catching her in free fall.

Vigilante later attended a parade in Metropolis in Superman's place, together with Green Arrow, Stargirl, STRIPE, and Shining Knight. There, he displayed his love of theatrics and crowd pleasing. When a mutated General Eiling attacked the heroes, Vigilante tried his best to fight him off ― he shot the beast, and even rammed an exploding motorcycle into him. However, his efforts were useless in face of the mutated Eiling, who easily disposed of Vigilante.

When Darkseid was unwittingly resurrected by Luthor and subsequently invaded Earth, Vigilante teamed up with Wonder Woman, Shining Knight and Star Sapphire to fight the Apokoliptian forces at the Great Wall of China, where they were soon joined by J'onn J'onzz.


Greg Sanders' great grandfather was a famous Indian fighter who helped open up the American West to settlement in the 19th century before he was killed in an Indian ambush. Greg's father continued this fighting tradition, but he fought criminals - becoming a sheriff out west. Greg was born in Wyoming and even as a child was thrilled to watch his father get in fistfights with criminals.
