It's been a long while since I re-posted anything from Ross Pearsall's amazing Super-Team Family Presents... blog, but he's finally given us more Gold, this time teaming with Canada's premiere team of heroes, Alpha Flight!
"Come with me if you want to live," indeed.
I'm sure that this team-up is based on Dan "Good Riddance" DiDio's claim that New 52 Booster Gold would hail from north of the border, something that I will once again point out has still never been confirmed or even addressed in the pages of a DC comic book.
So far as I'm concerned, Booster Gold will remain an American until a Black Lantern Ronald Reagan rises from the grave to revokes his citizenship (or at the very least, DC publishes some actual evidence between the covers of one of their comics magazines).
That said, I cannot deny that I love seeing some Gold leading the charge, into the Great White North or anywhere else. Thanks, Ross.

Great minds think alike. No sooner had I finished writing Friday's bio on Dirk Davis than I clicked over to Ross Pearsall's delightful Super-Team Family Presents... blog and found that he's also got Booster Gold's agent on his creative mind.
Mojo is an X-Men villain from another universe who, like Booster Gold, debuted in the mid-1980s as a commentary on American celebrity culture. In Mojo's case, he's a parody of a television network executive whose only desire is to get great ratings at any cost. In other words, he's a natural foe for popularity-obsessed a Booster Gold!
Great job, Ross.

I have sung the praises of Ross Pearsall's Super-Team Family Presents... covers for years. And I'll keep doing it so long as Ross continues to create such masterpieces as this, the latest to feature RoboFoce, Skeets' all-robot action team!
Issue #2450 was the sixth RoboForce cover appearance. Since I have only shown 3 of them, I'll correct that oversight now by adding the two I missed.
I particularly love that all of these feature a different Skeets model.
Click on any of these covers to visit BraveAndBoldLost.blogspot.com and see more of Pearsall's imagination at work.

I first re-published the following image from Ross Pearsall's incomparable Super-Team Family Presents... blog back in 2017, but it's even more appropriate today.
Lee has oft been accused of seeking the limelight at the expense of others, a personality flaw that should be painfully familiar to Booster Gold fans. Whatever faults he might have had, Lee was a master storyteller and promoter, and I shudder to think of what American superhero comics might now be if not for his contributions to the medium. Thanks, Stan.

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