When several SPACE PARASITES landed on Earth and began collecting the spinal fluid from humans in order to feed their gestating master, a small percentage of surviving victims developed super powers.
Booster Gold and the other HEROES OF THE BLOODBATH were rescued from the space parasites thanks to the intervention of the so-called New Blood heroes. Though most of the New Blood would fade into obscurity, some continued activities in the heroic community. Ballistic, Mongrel, Nightblade, and Sparx II would eventually join the Blood Pack led by Jade (see INFINITY INC.) and fight alongside Booster Gold and the JUSTICE LEAGUE against the Crimelord.

After the Oans Herupa Hando Hu and Nadia Safir (see GUARDIANS OF THE UNIVERSE) accelerate the evolution of humanity, their "Chosen" humans joined forces to form the New Guardians.
At first a defender of the Chosen, Booster Gold betrayed the HEROES OF THE MILLENNIUM event to become agent of their opposing MANHUNTERS. At one point, Booster kidnapped Xiang Po (soon to be Gloss) in order to show her the depravity of humanity that she would have to defend should she accept the offer of super powers from the Oans. In the end, Xiang Po helped to convince Booster Gold to return to his previously heroic form.
