Have you been enjoying the 2012 London Olympics? As you watch this final week of games, don't forget that the Olympics are partially responsible for Booster Gold. As Dan Jurgens details in the Secret Origin of Booster Gold interview here at Boosterrific.com:
DAN JURGENS: Much of Booster was inspired by the '84 Olympics when I saw an athlete described as having an endorsement contract without ever having won a medal. Many of the BG ideas were already in place but that sort of galvanized it.
Looking back, how different would it have been if Jurgens had been keeping his eye only on the winning athletes? I doubt that "Mary Lou Retton Gold" would have had the same lasting effect on the DC Universe.
