Now, I don't like things to happen to my friends, but I just can't help it if accidents happen.

Me neither, but Scoodle is never wrong, that's one of his unlisted powers. It's better to just do what he says.

It's alright, not everyone has seen the light of righteousness. I'll refer you to the Booster Gold page (which I might mention, helped me tie the very first Comicvine contest, BWA-HA-HA-HA!) http://www.comicvine.com/booster-gold/1786/

Booster's real name is Michael Carter, and he's from around the year 2460. He was a joke in his time, and stole some 20th century superhero gear, and Rip Hunter's time machine, and came to our time to make some cash. He has since been a member of the Justice League several times, and most recently saved the universe 52 times... sort of.

He's an extremely well-developed character with a lot of history, and he's a lovable and funny guy to boot.

Awesome! You won't regret it. It's being written by Geoff Johns and Jeff Katz at first, and later will be left solely to Katz. Who, I might mention, wrote a freaking fantastic Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash script for Newline a while back. Also, Dan Jurgens, who created Booster, will be doing the art indefinetely.

Yeah, I don't Read DC (except for a random buy from time to time), umm I don't think Booster is the Book to compell me to do so more often either.

#35 Posted by ScoodleDaddle (646 posts) - - Show Bio

But the rest of the DCU hates him. Isn't that reason enough for a non-DC fan to buy it? It's going to have time travel, too! Time travel!

Also, read this description for issue 3!

This is it! The DEATH of BOOSTER GOLD!! And nothing will ever be the same aga...wait. We already tried to kill him? Really? Well, in this issue Booster Gold heads back to the Old West and runs into Jonah Hex. You know, that crazy looking gunfighter! But what does Jonah Hex have that Booster desperately needs? Plus: the Death of Jonah Hex!!

What? We can't kill him either? Well, someone's going to fall off a horse at least!*

(*Warning: This issue may not contain a scene of anyone falling off a horse.)

actually the fact that the DC U hates him might compell me to read it, and I do love Time travel. has he ever had his own book before

#38 Posted by ScoodleDaddle (646 posts) - - Show Bio

Well, Dan Jurgens created him in a solo series in 1986, and that was his last solo series. It ran for 25 issues, not a phenomonal hit, but more of a cult thing. He later joined the C-List Justice League International, which is probably what he's most well known for.

If you want to read some great JLI stuff with him, pick up "Justice League: A New Beginning", "Formerly Known as the Justice League" or "I Can't Believe it's not the Justice League!"

#39 Posted by Iron Apollo (2191 posts) - - Show Bio

So theres not a whole lot of backstory to play catch up with?

I just don't want to get into it, then Need to go buy JLI to see his past, then go buy other books cause of the characters in JLI that i will begin to like or hate, and it just become a giant snowball of money and comics, which is one reason I stay away from the DCU, but mainly its because I hate the infinite earths/multiverse/52 stuff, it makes me want to vomit

ok... i'll admit it, i picked it up out of curiosity...

when Rip Hunter arrived the headache started... when Booster started talking to his ancestor i reached for the Anadin... when they started including Sinestro from the past when he was still a Green Lantern i reached for the whisky...

this series may be interesting, or Booster is going to single handedly start another Crisis in Time... Zero Hour 2 anyone?

#41 Posted by ScoodleDaddle (646 posts) - - Show Bio

Well, you dont have to. I mean, the first issue gives some pretty good exposition as to his past. I was just suggesting those comics, because, well, they're good. And you might enjoy them because they center specifically around characters that are quite the opposite of Superman, Batman, or Wonder-Woman.

Unfortunately, this new Booster Gold series IS a direct sequel to 52. But given that it explains what you need to know in the issue, I doubt you'd NEED to do any backtracking. My suggestions were mainly pertaining to just learning about the kind of character he is, or his past relationships, which are quite important to the character.

Well, the series is going to do a lot of time traveling, and the first two stories will show Booster meeting a GL Sinestro, and then teaming with Jonah Hex.

It's funny that you should mention Zero Hour though, because Geoff Johns recently announced that after #6 comes out, a #0 will be released, and will be a direct crossover with Zero Hour.

Yes. It will be crossing over with an event that happened 13 years ago. That's just so damn crazy I love it.

ahh... a crossing with Zero Hour...

Well, hopefully Johns intends to fix some of the... errors.

I'm of the opinion that Extant is the one who stole the Supernova suit from Daniel.

#46 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

if they bring Extant back into it, i'll probably drop the comic there and then...

Zero Hour was Hal's crowning moment, where he stapped up and knocked superman out with one punch... pure class...

if they retcon any of that i am going to be seriously pissed

i'm still angry about the 'parallax is a symbiote, hal didn't go crazy with grief over loosing everyone he cared about, he was under the control of a parasite' deal... complete bollocks in my opinion.

umm yeeaaah. yeeeaaah sooooo after reading your and methos's last couple of coments, it sounds like there will be wasy too much DCU stuff going on, esp since I just realized time travel didn't mean in our simple universe but in the DCU, so yeah gonna have to pass, yeeaah

Dude. I completely agree. I mean, I doubt they'll outright retcon anything, but since Johns has already done the whole Parallax thing, Zero Hour was changed at Rebirth.

#50 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

i hope they don't...

ever since they brought Hal back they've retconned pretty much ever decent thing that happened in the DCU... it's starting to be a real headache trying to figure out whats real history and what was retconned.
