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.

New Gods

The New Gods are a race of highly evolved beings with amazing abilities that live on the worlds of New Genesis and Apokolips (ruled by DARKSEID), which have long been locked in a struggle for dominance and peace. The New Gods are responsible for the technology behind the advanced computer Mother Box and rapid transit Boom Tubes.

The first of the New Gods to meet Booster Gold was MISTER MIRACLE while both served the JUSTICE LEAGUE. Though Booster does not remember it, he has traveled to the world of New Genesis and met Highfather, the New Gods leader.

First Meeting with Booster Gold: Millennium #7, 1988

Membership: Betty Clawman, Extrano, Floro, Gloss, Jet, Ram, Thomas Kalmaku

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.

New Titans

As the original TEEN TITANS aged, their team evolved and took on new members. During one period of rotating membership, the team was frequently referred to as the New Titans.

The New Titans joined Booster Gold in the epic battle against ECLIPSO, who had possessed SUPERMAN and several members of the JUSTICE LEAGUE and New Titans.
