Breaking News: Booster Gold Still Not Canadian

Friday the Canadian newspaper The Star broke the news that Jeff Lemire would be taking over Justice League of America when the team moves to Canada.

That news inspired Booster Gold fans everywhere to ask, "if Booster Gold is really Canadian in the DCnU, will he be joining the team?" The answer is no. (And not just because Booster isn't Canadian.)

Jeffrey Renaud of put the question directly to Jeff Lemire:

CBR: I think the only other Canadian character that's been introduced into the New 52 is Booster Gold. Again, I know you are sworn to secrecy on the roster but does Booster play a role in your book?

Lemire: No plans for Booster. I wish I could talk about my roster because it's my dream team -- a couple of other cosmic characters and some current, fairly major characters will be part of the team.

Geez. Booster can't catch a break, can he?

For the record, still no evidence has ever been introduced in canon to contradict Booster Gold's American citizenship as established in Booster Gold Volume 1. Even admitted as much in their countdown of the Top 10 Canadian Heroes. Given that Booster has made exactly 3 comic appearances in the past year and has nothing on the horizon, it doesn't look like there will be any change to that status in the foreseeable future.
