AIDS PSA, 1993

Image Copyright DC Comics

In 1992, DC Comics produced a series of public service announcements (PSAs) featuring DC Universe heroes addressing the global AIDS epidemic. In one of these PSAs, Booster Gold and Blue Beetle are upbraided by teammate Fire for their ignorance and insensitivity. Based on Fire's costume, this encounter would presumably take place just prior to Justice League America #67 (cover dated October 1992). Booster Gold is notably polishing his costume with Shinola, an obsolete brand of shoe-polish, long out of production by the 1990s. This is an allusion to the popular American idiom that someone "doesn't know shit from Shinola," an insult denouncing the subject's intelligence. Clearly, the unidentified artist is indicating that Booster is foolish in his lack of understanding of the spread of AIDS.

AIDS PSA, 1994

Image Copyright DC Comics

This public service announcement (PSA) is a redrawn version of an identical PSA released one year earlier. Based on Booster's costume, this encounter would presumably take place immediately prior to Justice League America #86 (cover dated March 1994). In the time between the two ads, both Booster Gold and Fire had lost their original powers at the hands of Doomsday. While it makes less sense that Fire would yell Booster and Beetle out of their seats than blow them out with a blast of heat, the Shinola gag works better in the new ad, as now Booster is shining a metal costume with his Shinola. [Credit to PoliteDissent.com for noting the differences in these two ads.]
