Number One Bromance in Comics

I've been trying to get to posting this for about two weeks, but I didn't figure there was any hurry. Everyone already knows who the biggest bromance in comics is, right? Joe Mortimer sure does.

Although the bromances on this list aren't really in any kind of order, Blue Beetle (Ted Kord) and Booster Gold (Michael Jon Carter) definitely rank No. 1. This is like the original superhero bromance. Meeting as members of the Justice League International, the pair of C-List superheroes become instant best friends. Their misadventures include becoming superhero repo men, opening a casino/resort called Club JLI on the living island of Kooey Kooey Kooey, and stealing Martian Manhunter's cookies.

This Day in History: Make Dove Not War

Booster Gold has never been especially lucky in love. In fact, he's never been very lucky in anything at all. But his love affairs stand out as particularly star-crossed.

While Booster has had semi-stable relationships with actress Monica Lake and Firestorm's main squeeze, Firehawk, he's just as likely to be seen striking out. Justice League International fans may recall Booster made a fool of himself hitting on Justice League Europe liaison Catherine Cobert. Superboy fans might remember the embarrassing time Booster and Beetle both failed in their desperate attempts to pick up Superboy's fellow Raver Aura. But does anyone remember that time during Invasion! when Booster Gold struck out with Dove?

As seen in a flashback in Hawk & Dove Volume 3, #1 — released 27 years ago today! — Booster decided that the middle of an alien invasion of Earth was the right time to make a move on Dove. (The heart wants what the heart wants!) Both Dove and Hawk disagreed.

Awk-ward! For a Time Master, Booster Gold can have some pretty bad timing.

Think Happy Thoughts

I still have a bit of a crush on Trixie myself.

Last week's poll question: Which character would you expect to see revealed as Booster Gold's future wife? (46 votes)

Which character would you expect to see revealed as Booster Gold's future wife?

As the latest Booster Gold drought stretches deep into its fourth month, I pose this hypothetical question about what direction you'd like the character to take in the future.

Holy Matrimony, Booster Gold

Personally, I think you should never give someone money just because they've hired a celebrity spokesperson. Unless that spokesperson is Booster Gold.

Last week's poll question: Would you give money to a charity just because Booster Gold endorsed it? (40 votes)

Would you give money to a charity just because Booster Gold endorsed it?

Yesterday, Russ Burlingame pulled the scab off a wound when he reported at that Dan Jurgens still refuses to divulge his plans for the long cancelled Booster Gold Volume 2.

"I always look at it and say there’s going to be a chance one day, someday somehow, to give those answers."
-- Dan Jurgens

We've only been waiting 4 years since Flashpoint ended to learn who Black Beetle is or who Booster Gold marries. It took about 9 years to see what Dirk Davis did with Booster's fortune after Millennium, and about 20 to see Booster reunited with his dead sister. Compared to those numbers, 4 years is the blink of an eye. A very, very slow blink.

To pass the time, let's reinvestigate who we think the likely suspects are to marry Booster Gold. I'm sure you remember Trixie Collins, and no doubt you're familiar with Godiva and Liri Lee, but you may have forgotten time traveler Sondra Crain or Flashpoint damsel-in-distress Alexandra Gianopoulos.

Every Sidekick Should Be a Star

Maybe Booster Gold should have a wife. That alone would differentiate him from every other hero of this current generation.

Last week's poll question: Should Booster Gold have a love interest? (46 votes)

Should Booster Gold have a love interest?

Earlier this week, Morgenstern posted a link in the Boosterrific Forum to a Youtube video in which Skeets was redesigned with a star-shaped viewscreen. Most of us thought that was pretty cool. Maybe it should make its way into canon.
