Looking Good, Mister Gold

If you have been waiting for physical copies of Injustice 2 instead of buying them as they are released digitally each week on Comixology.com (only 99¢ per chapter!), you may be unaware that our hero has recently made a small change to his costume. And it looks pretty darn good.

Check out that jacket! And it's got a collar! *swoon*

You'll be able to pick up the hard copy of this and Chapter Fifty Seven when they come to your Local Comic Shop on July 18 as Injustice 2 #30.

Thanks to Jeremy R! Hudson for spreading the fashionable news on Twitter.

Three Things (Comic Con 2017 Wrap Up)

Another Comic Con has come and gone. So what, if anything, did we learn about Booster Gold this year? Not much.

Let us count the ways.

1. Booster Gold might be in the DC Films intro.

When DC Films debuted their new intro in front of Wonder Woman this June, there was some debate about which DC characters it contained.

At Comic-Con, DC gave attendees of the DC Films panel a better look. (You'll see that the placement of characters in the film intro above is not identical to the characters seen on the panel wall below, but the individual character models appear identical.)

I can't be sure whether Booster Gold was included in the original, but he was certainly present at Comic Con — in his pre-New 52 outfit, no less! (Thanks to jeremy r! hudson for bringing this to my attention.)

2. Booster Gold might be in SyFy's Krypton.

It was announced in 2016 that SyFy had picked up Krypton, a television show based on Superman's home planet (before it exploded, of course). The show, set to debut in 2018, took the spotlight on Saturday, where it got its own panel at Comic Con. During that panel, we learned that though it won't share continuity with shows on the CW or the big screen, it will feature some significant cameos from DC properties.

Said Geoff Johns at the panel (according to Laura Hurley of CinemaBlend.com):

Doomsday will be in the show... In the pilot, and I'm spoiling things. 'I'm from a planet called Earth. My name is Adam Strange.' We will bring in others. Booster Gold. I never say never. Hawkwoman is also there, and as the show progresses, we'll bring in more.

That's not a promise that we'll see Booster Gold, but it sounds likely, especially since the show is no longer set purely in the past but in the present as well. You can't have a show set in the DC Universe with time travel elements without at least some reference to Booster Gold, right? (*He says, glaring at Legends of Tomorrow.*)

3. Booster Gold fans owe Dan Didio.

Speaking of Geoff Johns, he had a panel all his own. Madeline Ricchiuto of Bleeding Cool reports that Johns claims industry insiders discouraged many of his planned DC Comics projects, including Booster Gold.

Despite the fact that he was constantly told "you may want to reconsider," some of his choices like writing a book about Booster Gold, but he said Didio's support always pushed him forward.

I've always been pretty vocal about my dissatisfaction with the direction of storytelling and universe building (usually more like universe decapitation, rape, or murder) in the Didio era. However, I have to admit that his reign at DC has given us some of the higher points in Booster Gold's career. He deserves some credit for that. So thanks, Dan.

Now give me my Booster Gold back!

Booster Gold Movie Plot Leaked

Perhaps you saw the news yesterday breaking on Entertainment Weekly that actor Patrick J. Adams has been cast for that "fun character the fans will love" role in the season finale of DC's Legends of Tomorrow? Booster booster Jeremy R! Hudson of nerdbastards.com desperately wants Adams to be Booster Gold. TVLine.com insists he won't be.

(Personally, I expect to see him as a Legionnaire. Given James' success playing a genius on USA's Suits, I'm betting he'll be playing Brainiac 5.)

Part of the reason I'm inclined to believe that Booster Gold will not be on Legends of Tomorrow anytime soon is because someone has finally leaked the synopsis of the long-awaited Booster Gold movie. It's ... interesting. Brace yourself. A lot of things have been changed.

In a nutshell, Booster Gold is — spoilers! — a time cop from the future in a high-tech police force run by Ted Kord. Senator Ballard — who you may remember as the villain in Booster's first adventures — is the bad guy. There are some other familiar names scattered throughout, but no Michelle, no Rip, and worse, no Skeets!

(Click here to reveal plot spoilers. Don't say I didn't warn you.)

Looking Up to Blue and Gold

Morgenstern wasn't the only Booster-phile to send us Booster Gold-related news this weekend. Reader Jeremy Hudson sent along the following picture and related description:

Blue and Gold by jeremy r! hudson

Just thought I'd pass something personal along that might be of interest to your visitors. The attached photo is what I had painted over my sons crib/bed shortly after he was born. As time went on other superheros were added to the room, but Booster and Beetle were always right over head.

I've recently sold that house and moved the family into a new one. Tonight, when I put the boy to bed (he's 3 now) he asked where Booster Gold was and then proceeded to tell me that I have to paint him above his bed this weekend.

I believe I have done my part to make sure future generations keep going for the gold.

That's one lucky kid. I'm sure that we would all like to open our eyes to Blue and Gold each and every morning. Thanks, Jeremy!

The Legacy of Booster Gold

While I have been disappointed to learn that Booster Gold may not be an actual character model in the game DC Universe Online, my spirits have been buoyed by this image, the best I've gotten yet of Booster's in-game Flakies™ advertisement:

Jeremy Hudson as Booster Silver

The pic is of Jeremey Hudson's avatar, Booster Silver, who Jeremey describes as akin to "the Red Arrow to Queen's Green Arrow." No doubt we will soon see a Silverstar flying around. Thanks for the pic, Jeremy.
