More Powers Than Batman
You know most CBR.com listicles just annoy me, but every once in a while, they say something I agree with.
For example, take "DC Comics: 10 Sidekicks Who Need To Break Away From Their Mentor" by Derek Faraci.
8. Skeets Plays Second Fiddle To A Goofball
Of all the sidekicks in comics, Skeets may get the least respect. A super-intelligent robot that holds all of human history up to the 25th century in its databanks, Skeets works alongside Booster Gold to help the hero from the future become the greatest hero of today. But Skeets only shows up when Booster bothers to turn him on. When Booster was a member of the Justice League International, he boxed up his sidekick up and left him in storage, which is just plain rude. With its smarts, its lasers, and its sense of humor, Skeets is more than ready to branch out and do its own thing.
Yes! In Skeets' case, striking out on its own might even seem like *less* work.
If you're paying attention, DC: yes, I would buy a Skeets solo comic.
