Martian Manhunter is getting a new mini-series in December that will rewrite the character as something a little more... alien than what longtime DC readers are used to. (DC's solicitation reads: "Back on Mars, J’onn was about as corrupt as a law officer can be, and when a reckoning comes for his entire society, he’ll get a second chance he doesn’t want or deserve!")
I can't say as I'm very eager about that. I happened to like J'onn J'onzz just the way he was.
Take, for example, the Martian Manhunter who appeared in "The Ghosts of Mars," a story running through JLA Classified #42-#46. Written by Justin Gray, the story focused entirely on J'onzz's internal struggle against his own inner demons. Demons that sometimes took the appearance of Booster Gold, as seen in JLA Classified #44, released on this date in 2007.
JLA Classified #44 by Justin Gray, Rick Leonardi, Sean Philips, I.L.L., John Hill
Each of the first four issues of "The Ghosts of Mars" shined a spotlight on a member of the Justice League who inspired Martian Manhunter to new heights of heroism. Ironically in light of recent events in the DCU, the hero of JLA Classified #44 is Wally West, aka The Flash.
Eleven years later, West is dead, Booster Gold is the suspect, and Manhunter is a corrupt cop. Is it any wonder I prefer to read back issues?

Booster booster Jackson Williams was reading The Flash #46 and caught this sequence of panels.

This issue of The Flash was released the week before Batman #47, but the former sure looks like it refers to the latter's meeting between Batman, Catwoman, and Booster Gold. (Which was, by the way, the first time that Booster Gold and Catwoman have ever met on panel.)
Thanks for the update, Jackson.

ComicsBeat.com has the exclusive preview of today's The Flash #21, and you don't have to look to hard to find a cameo appearance by the sidekick of the future, Skeets!
This is hardly the first time we've seen Skeets' outer shell among the artifacts stored in the JLA trophy room. One version or another has been in the Watchtower since JLA Secret Files & Origins #2 in 1998. We saw a similar image in Justice League of America, volume 2, #7 in 2006.
However, this is the first time we've seen the Justice League Unlimited version of Skeets in the regular DCnU. Is this multiverse crossover a side effect of Convergence, Rebirth, or just an artist who likes the JLU look? Who cares? It's Skeets!
Thanks to Benni Beard for pointing out this easter egg!

If you watched The Flash on Tuesday, you might have recognized its similarity to Booster Gold Volume 1, #18. (Russ Burlingame covered the details for Comicbook.com). In what I'm sure was completely unrelated news, after the episode aired, writer Zack Stentz announced on Twitter that he was leaving the show.
Naturally, this announcement stirred up the show's hardcore fans. Had Stentz been fired by Flash producer Greg Berlanti? Was there trouble behind the scenes?
Stentz headed off any potential gossip in a follow-up tweet.
Flash fans might be sad to see Stentz go, but Booster Gold fans have to be bouncing with joy knowing that work continues towards the Booster Gold movie.

In the wake of last week's revelation that Rick Famuyiwa was no longer director of Warner Brothers' planned Flash movie, rumors surfaced that JJ Abrams would be taking over the job. And apparently, Abrams wants to add Booster Gold, according to the following quote:
Booster Gold is only being brought in to tell the whole Flashpoint story. The Flash television series did not do the story justice and it needs to be told properly! Greg [Grunberg] will be great as Booster as well. He has the charm and charisma needed for the character.
Before you get excited or outraged, realize that this rumor was started by fakingstarwars.net, a website devoted to faking movie rumors. JJ Abrams will not taking over The Flash, nor will Abram's friend Greg Grunberg be playing Booster Gold anytime soon.
At least so far as anyone knows.
