30 Years of Time Crimes

The one thing all great heroes have in common is a robust Rogues' Gallery. Unfortunately for Booster Gold, he's too efficient. He rarely fights anyone more than once.

Among the few heroes to make a repeat appearance in the pages of Booster Gold is Broderick, the 25th-century cop who pursued wanted felon Michael "Booster" Carter back in time. Broderick had Booster Gold cornered in Booster Gold #18 before being distracted by a chance encounter with a liquor store robbery.

That was the last we saw of Broderick, but more than one fan has assumed that writer Dan Jurgens had intended for the character to play a bigger role in the series. Is there any truth to that conjecture? I decided to ask Jurgens directly.

Oh, Broderick was absolutely going to resurface. Had a very particular way it was going to work where, in true time traveler fashion, he'd pop up out of nowhere in the most unlikely of places.

In a way, he was the precursor to the first Linear Man story I did in Adventures of Superman.

The Linear Man first appeared in Adventures of Superman #476 as a time agent trying to bring Booster Gold to justice. Hmm, yeah, I guess I can see the similiarity there. Fascinating.

The True Story of Booster Gold

A hearty thanks to Dan Jurgens for his cooperation in exploring the rich history of his creation, Booster Gold.
