The End Is Near

The solicitation for Heroes in Crisis #9 is out. It looks like Booster Gold will finally be on one of the Ryan Sook variant covers. Sook has created a cover for each issue of the series, each showcasing a key "traumatic" moment of a hero's (or villain's) career.

As a reminder, here are the 8 Sook covers that have been revealed so far. (His cover for issue 7 remains a secret.)

Fight of the Century

DC Comics' January 2019 solicitations are online at Newsarama.com, and it will be a busy month for Booster Gold, appearing in two issues!

HEROES IN CRISIS #4
written by TOM KING
art by CLAY MANN
cover by TREVOR HAIRSINE
variant cover by RYAN SOOK
Wonder Woman versus…Booster Gold?! Diana finds out the hard way that Booster can be a formidable opponent when his back’s against the wall. Of course, being the prime suspect in a superhero massacre and exposing a secret trauma hospital for metahumans will do just that. Meanwhile, Batman and the Flash combine their detective skills to investigate what went awry at Sanctuary and uncover a serious glitch in the system—not to mention an explosive, spoiler-ific secret!
ON SALE January 2 · $3.99

HEROES IN CRISIS #5
written by TOM KING
art by CLAY MANN
cover by TREVOR HAIRSINE
variant cover by RYAN SOOK
The secrets of the DC Universe are hacked! Sanctuary wasn’t supposed to keep records, but now that the A.I. is compromised, superhero secrets are leaking all over the ’Net. Booster and Harley set aside their differences to focus on who they believe is the real killer (assuming one of them isn’t lying, that is). Meanwhile, Batman and the Flash continue to investigate the mysterious murderer. The answer can be found in Sanctuary…but is it safe to go digging in the crime scene?
ON SALE January 30 · $3.99

Booster Gold is going to throw down against Wonder Woman? That's not going to go well.

Alternate (History) Covers

DCComics.com released some alternate covers for upcoming issues of Heroes in Crisis via , including this J.G. Jones alternate featuring Booster Gold and Harley Quinn.

It looks like that will be a 1-in-50 "chase" variant, meaning that comic shops will get one for every fifty of the regular covers they order. (For obvious reasons, these are also called "incentive" variants, as they incentivize shops to order more comics than they otherwise would.) Comic shops price these rarer variants according to the purchase threshold, so expect to pay a pretty penny to acquire this cover, probably three or more times the $4 cover price.

There will also be 1-in-100 and 1-in-200 variants, the second of which is by Francesco Mattina and depicts a very bloody Harley wearing Booster's broken visor. Good luck finding that one for less than $50.

In addition to those rare variants, DC also released the Ryan Sook standard alternate covers for the first three Heroes in Crisis issues. Each depicts an "incident report" based on more traumatic moments in the lives of DC heroes. These are purportedly from the files of Sanctuary, "a facility designed to allow superheroes to process the trauma of those not-so-heroic moments." These traumatic moments include the death of Superman, Batman's broken back, Aquaman's lost arm, and Jason Todd's death. Oddly, they also include Wonder Woman's assassination of Maxwell Lord.

That seems to imply that Lord has died at Wonder Woman's hand. Where does this fit in continuity?

When last we saw him in the pages of Justice League vs Suicide Squad (2016), Lord was still alive and continuing his villainous ways. Since the original Justice League International never existed and Ted Kord is still alive in the DCnU, the events kicking off Infinite Crisis that led directly to Lord's death and eventual rebirth must have played out somewhat differently than originally seen in Wonder Woman #219 (2005) and Brightest Day (2010). Does this cover reference that old continuity destroyed by Flashpoint? Or are we being given a glimpse of a as yet unrevealed relationship between Lord and Wonder Woman in the DCnU? (Could Lord be behind the deaths at Sanctuary?)

Maybe we'll find out more when Heroes in Crisis finally sees print.

I'm Talking To You ****-face!

So we knew that Booster would be appearing in Injustice 2 #21 next week. Now we know that he'll be in issue #24 next month, too.

Words by Tom Taylor, Art by Redondo, Albarran, and Lokus

This panel comes from the digital-first Chapter 47 now on sale a Comixology.com. I'm sure you recognize Wonder Woman and Blue Beetle. That big guy we see from behind, that's Amazo. Calling one of the Justice League's toughest enemies "****-face" may not be Booster's best idea.

We'll find out how how this encounter turns out on April 18.

Booster Gold Dresses as Wonder Woman

Booster Gold returned to action this weekend, by which I mean Cartoon Network's Justice League Action.

The plot of the episode, titled "Phased and Confused," concerned Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman needing the help of Booster Gold to escape the Phantom Zone. All that was really just an excuse to get Booster Gold alone in the watchtower so he could do this:

Justice League Action episode Phased and Confused

While I always look forward to seeing Booster Gold in action, I have to say that I found his antics in this story to be so immature that I was left wondering why the Justice League would tolerate him. (Yes, "Time Out" established that Booster is still a time master in the JLAction universe, but the Justice League doesn't know that.)

That said, I'm not going to complain too much about a children's cartoon not meeting my adult expectations. Besides, whatever other faults the episode might have had, it was fun to see Booster pulling a Risky Business in Batman's costume.

Justice League Action has been a lot of fun, and I hope that there will be many more seasons to come.
