Number One Bromance in Comics

I've been trying to get to posting this for about two weeks, but I didn't figure there was any hurry. Everyone already knows who the biggest bromance in comics is, right? Joe Mortimer sure does.

Although the bromances on this list aren't really in any kind of order, Blue Beetle (Ted Kord) and Booster Gold (Michael Jon Carter) definitely rank No. 1. This is like the original superhero bromance. Meeting as members of the Justice League International, the pair of C-List superheroes become instant best friends. Their misadventures include becoming superhero repo men, opening a casino/resort called Club JLI on the living island of Kooey Kooey Kooey, and stealing Martian Manhunter's cookies.

Brovember Is Never Over

For the month of November, spotlighted famous bromances in pop culture. They saved the best until nearly last, featuring Blue Beetle and Booster Gold on November 29.

Ted Kord was a timid genius and Jon Carter a boorish blowhard, but that didn't stop them from bonding on and off the job.

Personally, I wouldn't describe Booster as a "boorish blowhard," but I suspect that's largely a case of semantics. In any event, it's good to see the Blue and Gold highlighted alongside other famous bromances, like Woody and Buzz Lightyear, C3P0 and R2D2, and Holmes and Watson. That's some good company!
