Booster Gold Will Get Your Kitty
Illustrator Dwayne Biddix put together this sample Business card for Booster Gold and uploaded it to DeviantArt.com:
Note that url: http://www.dccomics.com/characters/booster-gold. That leads to DC's official online description of Booster Gold.
As a time-traveler, Booster Gold understands how delicate our timeline is, and he often finds himself protecting the timestream. But in the ultimate irony for a fame-seeker, no one can ever know it's him. After all, if people find out what he's doing, it could change history and threaten the timestream. It's a responsibility that Booster Gold has come to take seriously, suggesting that there may be more driving this spotlight-loving hero than a simple quest for adoration. Even if he does spend as much time signing autographs as he does saving lives.
I don't think that's really accurate. To say that there "may" be more to Booster than his "quest for adoration" sells even the Nu52 incarnation of the character short. But maybe that's why I think it's such a good idea to make my own Booster Gold introduction video.

Last week's poll question: How would Booster Gold react to Deflategate? (50 votes)
Thirty years has been long enough for the development of many many different Booster Golds. Which of them were your favorite?

iFanboy on Booster Gold on TV
Last month Gabe Roth described what he'd like to see from a Booster Gold television show for iFanboy.com. I think the show he describes is pretty much the show that all Booster Gold fans want to see.
My fear is that the good folks at the network will get in there and start meddling. Not hard to imagine a bunch of guys with no comic book experience balking at the idea of a show centered on a character who isn't overtly "good" or formulaically fighting for truth, justice and the American way. That's not the Booster I want to see. My wish list? I want to see the full Booster costume in all its yellow and blue glory. I want to see an unashamed exploration of reluctant hero with unquenchable thirst for the spotlight. And I definitely want to see Booster's floating robot sidekick Skeets play a prominent role. I'm imagining Skeets as KITT from Knight Rider for a new generation.
As you might guess, I'm a big K.I.T.T. fan myself. To think that we could have a shot at talking S.K.E.E.T.S. ("Security Keeper, Emancipated Electronic Talking Series"?) toys lining shelves at Wal-Mart one day. I wonder if David Hasselhoff would be interested in guest starring as the Linear Man?
