Heroes of Final Night

Final Night #1, 1996

Membership: Captain Marvel, Jr., Doctor Polaris, Dusk, Takion

The champions of Earth assemble to defend the Sun from the appetite of an interstellar creature known as a sun eater.

Booster Gold and BLUE BEETLE II are well out of their league when trying to combat a being that can consume the energy of the Sun. The crisis of the Final Night is one of the very last adventures of the EXTREME JUSTICE team before it disbanded.

Fire & Ice

Super Friends #25, 1979 (Fire as Green Flame)
Justice League International, Vol. 1, #12, 1988 (Ice as Ice Maiden II)

First Meeting with Booster Gold:
Justice League International #14, 1988

When the UNITED NATIONS withdrew support from the GLOBAL GUARDIANS in order to back the JUSTICE LEAGUE, Guardians Green Flame (Beatriz DaCosta) and Ice Maiden II (Tora Olafsdotter) switched teams to join the Justice League. They changed their codenames to Fire and Ice respectively before their powers were strengthened following the explosion of the Gene Bomb by the ALIEN ALLIANCE (see HEROES OF THE INVASION).

Along with Booster Gold, BLUE BEETLE II, and the MARTIAN MANHUNTER, these two heroines formed the core of the Justice League for many years. As a result, Booster Gold has a long history and a strong personal relationship with both characters, especially the hot-tempered Brazilian beauty Fire with whom he has shared some very difficult times.

Firehawk I

Fury of Firestorm #1, 1982

First Meeting with Booster Gold:
Invasion! #2, 1989

Encounters with Booster Gold: 9

With atomic-powered wings and heat blasts, Firehawk I (Lorraine Reilly) has long been a freelance adventurer and ally of FIRESTORM (Ronnie Raymond).

Booster Gold and Firehawk first met while battling the ALIEN ALLIANCE together as HEROES OF THE INVASION. It would be many years later before they would develop a tempestuous relationship as partners in love and crime-fighting. Though the two are no longer a couple, their relationship apparently ended well enough that they still work together on occasion.

Following the events of Flashpoint, a French Firehawk II began operating on behalf of the French government alongside Britain's Hurricane, crossing paths with Booster Gold and the new JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL in pursuit of rogue Firestorms.

Firestorm

Firestorm, Vol. 1, #1, 1978 (as the Firestorm Matrix)

First Meeting with Booster Gold:
Millennium #1, 1988

Firestorm is the codename taken by a number of heroes who have shared the Firestorm Matrix and the ability to transmute matter.

Booster Gold first met Firestorm II (Ronnie Raymond/Mikhail Arkadin/Martin Stein) when both heroes were manipulated into working for the MANHUNTERS during the MILLENNIUM. Later, Booster would encounter both Firestorm IV (Martin Stein) and Firestorm V (Ronnie Raymond) simultaneously when an argument between the two (who collectively were the original Firestorm I) threatened the city of Pittsburgh. When Firestorm V joined the EXTREME JUSTICE team, Booster grew to resent Raymond's vitality and popularity.

After Ronnie Raymond's death, Booster would eventually meet Raymond's successor, Jason Rusch, as Firestorm VI. (Unlike previous Firestorms, Rusch is the dominant force in his Firestorm Matrix, and consumes other personalities rather than co-exist with them.) After the events of Flashpoint, Rusch can create unique and more powerful forms, such as Wrath, when joining with other Firestorms.

Flash

Flash Comics #1, 1940 (Flash I)
Showcase #4, 1956 (Flash II)
The Flash, Vol. 1, #110, 1959 (Flash III as Kid Flash)
The Flash, Vol. 2, #91, 1994 (Flash IV as Impulse)

First Meeting with Booster Gold:
Millennium #1, 1988

Over the years some heroes have learned to tap into the Speed Force, an energy that allows for vastly increased movement. Many of these heroes have adopted the public identity of the Flash out of respect for their forebearers, though some others have chosen other names, such as JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA members Johnny Quick and Jesse Quick or "speed guru" Max Mercury.

The first speedster that Booster Gold encountered was Flash II (Wally West) as a member of the HEROES OF THE MILLENNIUM event. He would later encounter West's mother, Mary West, and wife, Linda Park. During a trip through time, Booster would even encounter West as a young man in his original guise of Kid Flash, which he used as a member of the original TEEN TITANS.

Eventually, Booster would meet both the first hero to use the Flash moniker, Flash I (Jay Garrick), and the most recent, Flash IV (Bart Allen, then codenamed Impulse but also known as Kid Flash II), among the HEROES OF ZERO HOUR crisis.

Despite returning to the 20th century after the Crisis on Infinite Earths, Booster has met Flash II, Barry Allen, the most famous of the Flashes who appeared to sacrifice his life during the Crisis, while traveling through time with RIP HUNTER.

Being a time traveler himself, it was only a matter of time before Booster crossed paths with the greatest threat to the Flashes, Professor Zoom, also a time-traveler from the 25th century.

Fred Flintstone

First Meeting with Booster Gold:
Booster Gold/The Flintstones Special #1, 2017

Encounters with Booster Gold: 1

Fred Flintstone is a caveman living in the town of Bedrock in the year 20,000 B.C. The rest of his "modern stone age family" include his wife Wilma, daughter Pebbles, and pet dinosaur Dino. Fred's neighbors are Barney Rubble, his wife Betty, and their son Bamm-Bamm. Other characters in Bedrock include scientist Professor Sargon.

Booster Gold met Fred when he traveled back in time to confront the alien invasion led by Gorak. (The invasion was ultimately foiled thanks to the intervention of time travelers Doctor Clocker and Crabulon.)
