Say Goodnight, Gracey

In October 2010, as Time Master: Vanishing Point was just rolling out, I asked "Which character would you like to see as Booster Gold's future wife?" The winner of that poll was Trixie Collins.

In November 2015, after Convergence revealed all DC Continuities still existed, I asked "Which character would you expect to see revealed as Booster Gold's future wife?" Trixie won that vote, too.

So who will win this year? One guess.

Last week's poll question: Who was Booster Gold's wife in Time Master: Vanishing Point? (43 votes)

Who was Booster Gold's wife in <em>Time Master: Vanishing Point</em>?

People like Trixie. I don't blame them. I like her, too. But I don't think Jurgens ever intended her to marry Booster Gold any more than he did Blair Butler or Power Girl (both hinted at in Booster Gold #28).

You'll note that Sondra Crain was the least popular option in all three polls. For those too young to remember, Crain was anti-hero of "The Tomorrow Memory," climaxing in Booster Gold #30. Her goal was to prevent the past that created her in the hopes of making a better future. However, over the course of the story, she fails at her original goal. In fact, the only thing that she truly manages to accomplish is the salvation of young Gracey Greene.

As you might have realized by now, Gracey is my guess for Booster's wife. Granted, she may seem underage to be romancing our hero, but that's only because you're not thinking fourth dimensionally. From the right point of view, she is nearly five hundred years older than Micheal "Booster" Carter.

My guess isn't only based on Gracey's blond hair and fair skin. It also happens that Jurgens was working on Time Masters: Vanishing Point at the same time that "The Tomorrow Memory" was going to print. I don't think it's a coincidence he saved one person (only one!) from the destruction of Coast City in a story that was otherwise about how changing time was impossible unless he had a plan for that character.

Am I right? Who knows. Given how notoriously tight-lipped Jurgens is about his intentions and abandoned story threads, it may be decades or more before we ever get an "official" answer to this question.

The Mother of His Child

Last week's biography of Trixie Collins led to some discussion of whether she might be Booster Gold's wife and Rip Hunter's mother. Frankly, I can only guess.

Time Masters: Vanishing Point was infuriatingly vague on any details about the identity of Booster's wife. Here's a run down on the info we did get:

1. She is Caucasian.

2. She has blond hair.

3. That's it.

So who is she? Who will Michael "Booster" Carter one day love and trust enough to reveal all his secrets to? Who would join him in his sworn duty to save time itself from any and all threats?

Could it be Trixie Collins, his former secretary and conscience introduced in Booster Gold Volume 1? (She's a natural red-head, but that's what hair dye is for.)

Could it be Sondra Crain, a time-cop working for a future United States government to "fix" time in Booster Gold Volume 2? (She and Booster crossed paths only briefly during the destruction of Coast City, but she did convince him to try to save the world.)

Could it be Alexandra Gianopoulos, the Greek heiress that Booster met in the Flashpoint timeline shortly after the conclusion of Vanishing Point? (She might have died, but when has death ever stopped true love?)

Could it be Godiva, his flirtatious teammate from Justice League International, Volume 3? (Their team didn't exist until after the events of Vanishing Point, but time travel is inherently non-linear.)

Or could it be someone we haven't met yet (or maybe even someone else we have)? What do you think?
