If you're the sort of person who enjoys Internet listicles, you may have noticed a recent trend. To the delight of Booster boosters everywhere, our hero may finally be getting the respect he deserves.
First we present CBR.com's list of "5 DC Heroes Deadpool Could Defeat (& 5 He Couldn't)" by Chris White. Number 3 on the tougher-than-Deadpool side of the equation is Booster Gold.
He can harness super strength and fire powerful force blasts thanks to his gauntlets, and not only that, his force field belt would stop Deadpool's physical attacks in their tracks and launch him into the air with great force. Booster Gold withstood an attack from Doomsday, so he'd easily repel DP's advances.
Elsewhere, ScreenRant.com offers "The 10 Most Powerful Heroes on Justice League Unlimited, Ranked" by Scoot Allan. Booster makes that list, too! At number 10:
Booster Gold appeared in a number of team fight scenes and missions, he really displayed both his heroism and dedication to the team in "The Greatest Story Never Told." While Booster is working crowd control for the League, he manages to save the world from a separate catastrophe, although he receives none of the credit.
That's a pretty good showing for The Greatest Hero You're Never Heard Of.

Upon first read, I thought I was okay with Heroes in Crisis #1. Yes, it is heavy on atmosphere and light on story, but after Tom King's criminal misuse of Booster Gold in "The Gift", I decided that this was at least somewhat more respectful of my hero (even as it spits in the eye of the entire DC "Rebirth" initiative).
Now I'm wondering if perhaps my worst fears about this series weren't fearful enough. Since so many people seem to think that writer Tom King is some kind of literary genius — an opinion I have not shared since I read Batman, Volume 4 #1 — might Heroes in Crisis poison Booster Gold for the general public in the same sort of way that Marvel's revelation that Hank Pym was a mentally addled wife beater tarnished that once great character? *Gulp*
But maybe I'm overreacting. Maybe I'm just overprotective of my favorite character. Call me Chicken Little.
Am I alone? Let's find out.

Booster Gold-related pickings were slim at this year's Comic Con. What did we learn? Not much.
1. Booster Gold will not be in CW's Legends of Tomorrow season 4.
Per CBR.com: When asked at Saturday's DC's Legends of Tomorrow panel whether Booster Gold might put in an appearance, show executive producer Phil Klemmer said it was "not in the works." Seeing as how Booster hasn't been in any of the first three seasons of Legends of Tomorrow, this hardly comes as a shock.
2. Nathan Fillion isn't planning on playing Booster Gold.
Per ScreenRant.com: When asked whether he was aware that some fans want him to portray Booster Gold on screen, the Castle actor said that he likes the character but he's not campaigning for the part. Given that there has been no evidence that anyone is currently actively working on a Booster Gold movie or television project (and he won't be in Legends of Tomorrow ), this shouldn't come as much of a surprise to anyone, either.
3. Booster Gold will be playing a central role in Heroes in Crisis.
Per: Newsarama.com: Yes, we've known about Heroes in Crisis for nearly 2 months. But DC had a very weird press conference on a boat — somebody really loved Eyes Wide Shut — to promote the mini-series where they released new colored Clay Mann art featuring our hero.
I'm still not sold on Heroes in Crisis, but I can't deny that it's looking pretty darn good.

Over the weekend, Edward Cambro informed the world "15 Things You Didn't Know About Booster Gold" over at ScreenRant.com.
I suspect that Booster boosters knew most of those 15 things, with one notable exception: His archenemy is not Peter Platinum.
I'm don't mean to be too hard on Cambro. He does admit that calling PP an archenemy is a bit of a stretch. While I can appreciate his candor and logic, I could never call someone who gets a one-shot appearance anyone's "archenemy."
One of the very first polls I ever ran was a question about who you fans thought was Booster's archenemy. Since Cambro has brought it back up, I'll ask again. We'll take a look at your votes on Friday.
This week's poll question: Who do you consider to be Booster Gold's arch-nemesis? Please visit the Boosterrific Polls page to view results for this week's poll.
