The Linear Man is the code name of Travis O'Connell, one of several operatives, including Liri Lee, WAVERIDER, and RIP HUNTER, collectively known as the Linear Men who patrol time and ensure that the events that caused their creation are allowed to happen. The base of the Linear Men is at the end of time, a location known as Vanishing Point.

The Linear Man damaged SKEETS in order to lure Booster Gold into a trap, planning to take him to justice for crimes against time. Booster was saved from capture by the intervention of SUPERMAN, who was accidentally trapped in Booster's place.

First Meeting with Booster Gold: Booster Gold #16, 1987

Encounters with Booster Gold: 65

Maxwell Lord is a businessman with a knack for manipulation. Driven by a need to control the Earth's mightiest defenders and aided by a sentient computer, Lord re-organized the JUSTICE LEAGUE and manipulated it into alliance with the UNITED NATIONS. Lord has a limited ability to influence the minds of others (a power gained courtesy of the ALIEN ALLIANCE), and has managed to cheat death on several occasions. Shortly after John Charles Collins (as Judgment) broke up his first funeral, Lord reappeared as LORD HAVOK III. Years later, Lord became the Black King of CHECKMATE and took the opportunity to wage war on the super-powered community. Despite yet another death at the hands of WONDER WOMAN, Lord was restored to life as a member of the BLACK LANTERN CORPS and continues to threaten those superhumans with powers far beyond those of mortal men.

Maxwell Lord broke into Booster Gold's Metropolis BOOSTER GOLD INTERNATIONAL in order to offer Booster membership in the Justice League. For years, the two would be cronies, working together in the Justice League and SUPER BUDDIES for the good of society while profiting on their adventures. Booster briefly met Maxwell Lord's secretary, Ms. Wootenhoffer, who was later revealed as an agent of the MANHUNTERS. Following the death of the BLUE BEETLE II, Booster and Lord became fierce enemies.

In one of his adventures through time, Booster saves the life of Lord's ancestor, Cyril Lord, from ENEMY ACE in World War I. Booster would also save Lord's mother Naomi Lord in World War II.

Lord Satanus

Encounters with Booster Gold: 1

Lord Satanus, and his sister, Blaze, are the children of the wizard Shazam who have spent most of their immortal lives battling for power in the underworld and beyond.

Booster Gold unwittingly became a pawn of Lord Satanus in his battle against his sister when he was forced to fight Cerberus in the third circle of Hell.

Lex Luthor

First Meeting with Booster Gold: Booster Gold #23, 1987

Encounters with Booster Gold: 13

Criminal mastermind Lex Luthor presents to the public the image of an upstanding businessman, owner and president of the conglomerate LexCorp. He is often protected by his personal bodyguard, Mercy.

Lex Luthor hates all competition, and while Booster Gold was the owner of the thriving BOOSTER GOLD INTERNATIONAL business, LexCorp was amongst its chief rivals. Luthor eventually hired an employee of BGI to attack Booster Gold as the villain Attack Dog One in order to damage both BGI's and Booster's public image, a plan foiled by Booster Gold with the aid of SUPERMAN. No doubt enjoying having a former rival on his leash, Luthor would later sponsor Booster Gold's CONGLOMERATE.
