This Day in History: Booster Gold's Back

Believe it or not, once upon a time, Booster Gold was such a big star that he could sell comics he wasn't in just by appearing on the cover! Backwards!

Take, for example, Secret Origins #32, released 29 years ago today.

This issue presents the post-Crisis on Infinite Earths origin of the Justice League of America (which was differentiated from the original origin by the substitution of Black Canary for Wonder Woman).

The Justice League International was super hot at the time, so although the only links between the two teams were Canary and Martian Manhunter, the JLI was still given prime cover real estate to sell the story to new readers unfamiliar with DCU history.

There's no reason this strategy couldn't be used to sell old stories to a modern audience today. I speak only for myself, but I'd be much happier buying a comic showcasing Damian Wayne (Robin V) if he appeared only on the cover.

Big Screen Booster Gold

Adding to the total number of movies including Booster Gold (total: 2), over the weekend I pleasantly discovered that Booster Gold is briefly seen in the 2010 movie Cop Out thanks to his JLI teammate Black Carnary.

Early in the movie during the investigation of a crime scene within a hobby shop, Adam Brody shows the camera a Justice League International Series 1 Black Canary figure. Prominent on the packaging is the Justice League International line-up, including Booster Gold.
