Booster booster CDN points our attention to a YouTube video from whatculture.com, where Booster Gold has managed to make his way near the top of another list, this time for comics characters with the best motivations.
Booster Gold starts near the 8:00 minute mark
It seems to me that despite not having his own comic, Booster Gold appears to be pretty well known and much more widely respected these days than in years past. That's probably thanks mostly to his being included prominently in recent Batman and Justice League cartoons in his "Greatest Hero You've Never Heard Of" time policeman persona.
To think that Booster, once a laughingstock and perennial B-lister, will be idolized by the upcoming generation of comics readers... that's pretty cool.

I've seen references to Booster pop up on quite a few sites this week. Rather than spotlight any one of them and leave the others out, I'll just share what I've found and let you visit whatever you think sounds good.
Edward Wallace counts Booster's force field among the "Most Powerful Weapons in the DC Comic Book Universe."(FortressofSolitude.co.za)
Now you've got something to read between your green beers tomorrow, Booster boosters! Enjoy your St. Patrick's Day weekend.

I think by now you all know how I feel about comics blog ComicBookResource's soul-stripping rebranding to cbr.com (which is part of why it's taken me over a week to find the place to post this). However, in this modern world without any Booster Gold/Blue Beetle comics, I have to at least give them credit for reminding fans that a Blue and Gold pairing once existed and was awesome.
Visit cbr.com to read Matthew Stevens' deeply insightful "15 Superhero Buddy Movies We Want to See." I don't agree with his choice for number 1, but if there's any value to opinionated clickbait lists, it's that they generate some enjoyable, good-natured discussion between comics fans, right?

Last week, Ariel dropped by the Boosterrific Facebook page to tell us that the website that used to be Comic Book Resources but is now a series of lists has included both volumes of Booster Gold on Gary Smith's "The 15 Best JLI Books Ever."
Despite the title, the list is actually 17 titles long. (Because lists.) But of those 17 titles, 9 feature a strong Booster Gold presence:
17. Extreme Justice
2. "I Can't Believe It's Not the Justice League" in JLA Classified
If there's a lesson to be learned here, it's that it's almost impossible to have a Justice League International without Booster Gold. That's a pretty good legacy.
To read what Smith had to say about each title, visit CBR.com. Thanks to Ariel for sorting through the lists and bring this to our attention.

Cdn dropped by the Boosterrific Forum yesterday to tell us that the Booster Gold episode of Justice League Unlimited cracked the top 5 in CBR.com's list of "15 Unforgettable Justice League Unlimited Episodes."
Well, of course it did. It's "The Greatest Story Never Told."
Says list compiler Colby Lanham:
It’s a touching moment for Booster Gold, one that makes the audience feel for the character and his plight while adding layers of depth to the hero who doesn’t get many opportunities to do good.
I think it's nice that people remember the episode favorably. But I think it's even nicer that people remember the episode at all.
"The Greatest Story Never Told" first aired in 2004. Twelve years before that, people couldn't watch what had been on television twelve hours earlier if they hadn't had the foresight to record it on a magnetic tape!
It's comforting to know that people will still be discovering both the adventures of Booster Gold long after comics are no longer printed on trees. (Maybe even into the 25th century.)
Long live Booster Gold!
