We Already Knew That

Graeme McMillan and George Marston have ranked "The 10 Best TIME-TRAVELING SUPERHEROES of All Time!" for Newsarama.com, and — spoilers! — Booster Gold heads the list.

Perhaps comic books' top time-traveling superhero, Booster Gold may have started off his superheroic career with one simple time jump, but since then, he's teamed with Rip Hunter — who may or may not have been Booster's son — to protect the timestream from unwanted changes, only to fall victim to the rewriting of all DCU history via the “New 52,” where he's traveled into the past to meet Jonah Hex, and later went back to the future as part of Justice League 3001.

That's a drastic oversimplification of what passes for continuity at DC Comics these days (especially considering that the picture chosen to accompany the article is Booster Gold as Waverider from the nearly forgotten Convergence mini-series), but I can't quibble with their choice.

Booster Gold is unequivocally the best time-traveling super hero of all time whether anyone else has heard of him or not.

Thanks to Rob Snow for reporting this article.

What We Learned at NYCC 2017

The closest thing to Booster Gold news coming out of New York Comic Con this past weekend was included in this report of the "Sunday Conversation" panel with Dan DiDio and Keith Giffen (among others) as reported by Joe Glass for BleedingCool.com:

A fan says he'd love to see Seven Soldiers of Victory book, another says Booster Gold, another with Secret Six. Someone says Ambush Bug (Giffen: "No.")

So Booster was a no-show at NYCC, but he's not so underrepresented at all conventions.

This is George Pooley (with his "best mate") at the MCM Manchester Comic Con in the UK back in July:

See? Blue and Gold were in the house!

Thanks to George for sharing. Keep up the good cosplaying, men.
