CaptainHeq dropped by the Boosterrific Forum last week to confirm something that Booster Gold fans already knew: Booster Gold is the best!
Booster beat Doctor Who in the championship bracket of the radiobastard.com podcast Time Challenge tournament of time travelers. Says CaptainHeq:
Booster won by just a handful of votes, so I think you here can take credit for that.
Don't think we won't! Booster Gold fans are the best fans!

Remember back in April when CaptainHeq begged for votes for Booster Gold in the #TimeChallenge? You made his dream come true. Not only has Booster Gold made the final vote, as I type this, he's beating Doctor Who!
If you want to help pad Booster's lead, head over to radiobastard.com and vote!

Yesterday, CaptainHeq came to the Boosterrific.com Forum pandering for votes. As he explains it:
Currently on my podcast (radiobastard.com) we're doing something called the #TimeChallenge. The end all be all battle to find the ultimate time traveler. It's the second week of the first round, Booster Gold versus Sam Beckett (from Quantum Leap but I hope I don't have to actually mention that.)
Now here's the actual deal. I NEED Booster to win this and move on to round two (and then eventually face Doctor Who, since... seriously... it's Doctor Who and he's walking through this whole thing.) After years of taking heat for Booster being my favorite superhero I've come to the source of the grassroots of time's best champion to rally some support.
I've hesitated to link to the BastardCast podcasts in the past because their potty-mouths are definitely Not Safe For Work. But I cannot deny a heartfelt plea in support of Booster Gold.
Go and give Booster Gold some love at
And if you want to listen to the BastardCast while you're over there, more power to you. You'll find the TimeChallenge segment at about the 01:35:00 mark.
UPDATE 2014-04-04: I've removed the link to the NerdBastards website that was giving some a malware warning. When I tested the link yesterday, I got no warning, but better safe than sorry. My apologies.

Yesterday BleedingCool.com set our hearts atwitter by suggesting that Booster Gold might be part of DC's latest Universe relaunch. (I guess the last one didn't take?)
The relaunched rumor became the news of the
day week month on the Boosterrific Forum, where many hands were wrung in anguish that the latest Booster reboot may lead to a "grimmer and grittier" interpretation of the character.
This is where I, as the chronicler of all things Booster Gold, remind you that we've been here before. In fact, it was 19 years ago today that DC published Extreme Justice #0, the first issue in what was intended to be a grimmer and grittier, pro-active Justice League.
Extreme Justice is infamous as the apex — or nadir, depending on your point of view — of DC's 1990s artistic excesses. I'm not going to defend the book. I think it speaks for itself:
Uh, yeah. Maybe some things are best left in the past.
(Thanks to Gio3432 and CaptainHeq for spreading the news in the Forum.)
