- Booster Gold
Monday, October 17, 2011
David Uzumeri covered the "DC ALL ACCESS: Justice League" panel at New York Comic Con for Comics Alliance and turned in the following quote about Booster Gold:
[Dan] Jurgens and [Geoff] Johns confirmed that Booster Gold doesn't remember the pre-New 52 DC Universe.
However, Vaneta Rogers also covered the panel for Newsarama, and her article implies a starkly different conclusion:
Jurgens said Booster's experiences from Flashpoint seem to be relatively intact, but he said the fact that he has those memories in his head somewhere doesn't necessarily mean he can remember them consciously.
Johns said, "If Booster remembers anything, he's not going to tell anyone."
Johns: "Does Skeets remember?"
Jurgens: "No, Skeets does not."
Johns: "Does Rip Hunter remember?"
Jurgens: "That's a story still waiting to be told."
(Is it just me, or does Johns' response to Jurgens' announcement that Booster remembers sound like something a super villain would say to a hero who has just discovered his world-ending plot?)
Josie Campbell's article for Comic Book Resources verifies Rogers' report.
[DC Senior Vice President Bob] Wayne then asked Jurgens on behalf of the online fans about Booster Gold's continuity and whether Booster remembers the timeline from before Flashpoint. "Booster's experiences are still relatively intact," said Jurgens before continuing, "But it's one thing to have those memories, it's another thing entirely to recall those memories."
"Is Rip Hunter coming back?" Johns asked him.
"There are still stories to be told," said Jurgens, before dashing Johns hopes that Skeets would reappear anytime soon.
Funny that three reporters covering the same event would hear three different stories, isn't it? In any event, it seems likely that Booster does remember Flashpoint, even if his lips are currently sealed. This isn't the first time that history has been changed around Skeets (or Booster, for that matter). It is interesting to speculate how Rip Hunter, DC's resident Time Master since the Silver Age, is dealing with the changes to history. Certainly, that's a story I'm looking forward to reading.
