Fantastic Foursome Returns From the Grave

I've made no secret of my appreciation of Ross Pearsall's Super-Team Family Presents... mash-ups. They're all great. The latest to feature Booster Gold is no exception.

Super-Team Family Presents #2187

If I saw that cover on a newsstand, it would definitely be coming home with me. Great work, Ross.

This Day in History: Blast Off

Not so long ago, Erin of Exploring the Time Lab was ruminating on some older comics she wanted to read. Included in her list was Blasters Special #1, which just happens to have been released 29 years ago today.

The Blasters were a space-faring group of super heroes spinning out of the Invasion! event. (I always think of them as a second-rate Omega Men.) Their biggest claim to fame was the inclusion of cast-off JLA mascot Snapper Carr, who had gained the ability to teleport by snapping his fingers. Snapper's inclusion in the Blasters was short lived (as were the Blasters themselves: their entire career was limited to Invasion, this one shot, and a couple of issues of Valor). Snapper would eventually move on to support the DC One Million-incarnation of Hourman in his own title.

So far as Booster Gold is concerned, his brief cameo in Blasters Special is limited entirely to the two-page spread pictured above. Of special note is the fact that this is the only time to date Booster has appeared on-panel with lesser known DC Comics heroes Brother Power the Geek or Shade the Changing Man. Oddly, Booster Gold wouldn't appear on panel with any of the Blasters until 2007, when he finally crossed paths with Snapper Carr at the wedding of Green Arrow and Black Canary.

There you go, Erin. Now you know what you've been missing.

Made for Television Event

Newsarama.com recently declared Booster Gold the best time-traveling comic book hero "of all time." (Does that include the comic books of the future?) However, Booster still isn't as well known as television's greatest time traveler, Doctor Who.

Ross Pearsall has done his part to correct that imbalance in two recent issues of his long-running Super-Team Family Presents... mash-ups.

Super-Team Family Presents #2077

Super-Team Family Presents #2078

And these aren't the only Booster Gold related team-ups Pearsall has given us in the past month. Ross also reunited Roboforce, the all-robot team of Skeets, R2D2, Red Tornado, Atomic Robo, and Machine Man in a battle against their mortal enemy, Magnus: Robot Fighter! You can see that issue on braveandboldlost.blogspot.com.

Keep up the good work, Ross.

Super-Team Ups, Real Life Edition

Everyone knows that Booster Gold cannot travel back in time into the Marvel Universe. But what this cover presupposes is... maybe he can?

Super-Team Family Presents #1990

This is another genius mash-up cover from the mind of Ross Pearsall of Super-Team Family Presents.... In fact, this cover image is Ross' 2,500th. Congratulations!

Super-Team Ups Continue

I don't know how Ross Pearsall does it, but he continues to churn out some amazing covers at Super-Team Family Presents.... In the past week alone, he's given us pairings of Groot and Chewbacca, Sgt. Rock and Cobra Commander, and Captain Carrot and Donald Duck. Whew!

But what earns him his latest mention here on Boosterrific.com is the return of Skeets' all-robot super team, Robo Force:

Super-Team Family Presents #1850

Skeets versus Brainiac! Why hasn't that happened in DC Comics before now?

As a bonus, check out this cover featuring the Blue Beetle's new partner.

Super-Team Family Presents #1855

Thanks for all your hard work, Ross.
