Paradise by the Karaoke Mic

Booster Gold gets his hands on a karaoke microphone in Harley Quinn #70 to sing

When I was lost, you took my hand
When life was gray, you made it grand
When I was damned, you knew the deal
When my heard was sand, you made it steel

I'll call you babe, and you call me boo
I'll love you strong, and you love me true!
Until the end of the world, I love you!

Don't be surprised if you don't recognize the song. It's not real. It was created by issue writer Sam Humphries specifically for the occasion ("to pass legal"). But he didn't create it without inspiration.

According Humphries himself (@samhumphries on Twitter.com), the song was inspired by "For Crying Out Loud," written by Jim Steinman and performed by Meat Loaf on his 1977 epic operatic album, Bat Out of Hell.

I've always thought of Booster as more of a U2 fan, but who am I to tell a Justice Leaguer what to sing.

Well Listen to This!

Two weeks ago, when I posted a link to some Booster Gold-inspired punk rock, Eskana dropped by the comments with a YouTube link to a song called "The Ballad of Booster Gold".

Music From My Bedroom Walls by Jacob Pence

This "little ditty of mediocrity," as it is described, has been online for over a year. It's from the album Music From My Bedroom Walls published by AcousTic Media Productions and credited to Jacob Pence.

How much other Booster Gold-inspired music is out there that I don't know about? It's starting to look like quite a bit.

Thanks, Eskana.

Blue and Gold Make Jim Lee Twitch

DC Comics Co-Publisher and Chief Creative Officer Jim Lee hasn't drawn Booster Gold often — the cover of Infinite Crisis #5 is the only instance I'm aware of — so we should celebrate it when we see it. Therefore, for any Booster booster who isn't following me on Twitter and hasn't seen this yet, check it out:

@jimlee via Twitter.com 2019-07-26

Lee didn't just tweet the finished product. He twitched himself drawing it! It took over three hours beginning to end, and you can watch every minute in these videos on YouTube:

BOOSTER GOLD! BLUE BEETLE! Part 1 of 2--Art Stream with JIM LEE
BLUE BEETLE! BOOSTER GOLD! Part 2 of 2. Final inks! Art by JIM LEE

Thanks to everyone who reminded me to post that.

Booster Gold Has the Best Everything

Booster booster CDN points our attention to a YouTube video from whatculture.com, where Booster Gold has managed to make his way near the top of another list, this time for comics characters with the best motivations.


Booster Gold starts near the 8:00 minute mark

It seems to me that despite not having his own comic, Booster Gold appears to be pretty well known and much more widely respected these days than in years past. That's probably thanks mostly to his being included prominently in recent Batman and Justice League cartoons in his "Greatest Hero You've Never Heard Of" time policeman persona.

To think that Booster, once a laughingstock and perennial B-lister, will be idolized by the upcoming generation of comics readers... that's pretty cool.

Calling All Boostermaniacs (TM)

Do you have your copy of LEGO DC Super Villains video game yet? If not, here's a game play video of our favorite hero from JayShockblast on YouTube:

Pay careful attention inside the game's version of Blaze Comics, and you'll spot a LEGO recreation of Booster Gold Volume 1, #25. That's pretty Boosterrific!

For the record, Booster is voiced in the game by Travis Willingham, and Roger Craig Smith is Skeets.
