First Meeting with Booster Gold: Extreme Justice #15, 1996

The Ruling Council of Exor, made up entirely of sets of twins native to the planet Exor, were willing to sacrifice their citizens to slavery in order to obtain powerful technology from the Slavelord.

Extant. Image © DC ComicsFirst Appearance: Zero Hour #4, 1994

First Meeting with Booster Gold: Booster Gold, Vol. 2, #0, 2008

Encounters with Booster Gold: 1

Determined to manipulate history to his own fiendish desires, Hank Hall (formerly known as Hawk, member of the TEEN TITANS) abandoned his role as MONARCH to assume the alter ego of the villainous Extant.

Extant's meddling with history initiated the crisis known as Zero Hour. As one of the HEROES OF ZERO HOUR, Booster Gold was affected by Extant's plans when he battled a displaced city from his native 25th century. Booster would later encounter Extant and another Zero Hour villain, Parallax, during a trip through the timestream with RIP HUNTER.


Extremists. Image © DC ComicsFirst Appearance: Justice League Europe #15, 1990

First Meeting with Booster Gold: Justice League America #89, 1994

Membership: Doctor Diehard, Dreamslayer, Gorgon, Lord Havok, Tracer

The Extremists were the preeminent team of super villains of the alternate universe world of Angor. Following the destruction of their world, the ethereal Dreamslayer traveled to Earth and continued his rampage with robotic duplicates of his deceased teammates. The robots were constructed by the idiosyncratic Mitch Wacky, along with the ASSEMBLERS, one of the few survivors of the destroyed world of Angor.

While the European branch of the JUSTICE LEAGUE often found themselves at odds with the Extremists and anecdotal evidence indicates that Booster Gold may have battled the Extremists in the past, Booster Gold did not directly combat Dreamslayer until he commanded the NEW EXTREMISTS.
