If you happened to pick up Wonder Woman #777 earlier this month, you may have recognized her gender-swapped Earth-11 counterpart, Wonder Man. What you may not have realized is that Wonder Man and Booster Gold have history. Sort of.
For the rest of that story, let's turn back the dial to Countdown Presents: The Search for Ray Palmer: Superwoman/Batwoman #1, the first appearance of Dane of Elysium, aka Wonder Man.

Countdown Presents: The Search for Ray Palmer: Superwoman/Batwoman was released in 2008 as a tie-in to the year-long Countdown (to Final Crisis) series, and it re-introduced readers to Earth-11, an alternate universe first visited in 2005's Batman/Superman #23 — though it wasn't called "Earth-11" at that time. The reconstitution of the DC Multiverse in the wake of Infinite Crisis wouldn't be revealed until roughly two years later at the conclusion of 52. (And they say the DC Multiverse is too confusing. Pfft!)
As you can see from these panels, Earth-11 shares much of the history of Earth-1, including familiar events of Identity Crisis (2004), Wonder Woman #219 (2005), and Amazons Attack! (2007).
All Booster Gold fans will remember Maxwell Lord's killing of Blue Beetle in the accurately titled Countdown to Infinite Crisis. Well, on Earth-11, those events played out somewhat differently.
The Maxine Lord executed by Wonder Man didn't kill the female Blue Beetle. She killed Beetle's best friend: Booster Gold.
Thus, in a way, Wonder Man avenged Booster Gold's death!
A guy like that can't be all bad.

At long last, someone has finally sated the need for a Booster Gold appearance in one of those classic Hostess Pie advertisements ubiquitous in Bronze Age comics. Bill Walko recently submitted the following image to Comic Book Resources' "The Line it is Drawn" column as part of its try-out for new regular artists.
Click the image above to go see a better, larger copy of the ad (and other fine works) at Walko's website, The Hero Business. As Skeets would say, "word."
You can also vote for Walko as your favorite in the contest at Comic Book Resources, although you would be advised to take a look at the entries first. There is an image of Booster Gold with Bone and several other teaming Booster with Doctor Who. But don't drag your feet, voting ends Thursday.
There have been 2551 blog entries since January 2010.
