Skeets: The Real MVP

For today's post, I asked Microsoft Copilot with GPT-4 for an essay about Skeets. The following is what it wrote.

In the grand theater of superheroes, where capes flutter and muscles bulge, there's a duo that flips the script - Booster Gold and his robotic sidekick, Skeets. But let's be honest, who's the real hero here?

Booster Gold may have the biceps, but Skeets has the brains. He's like a walking, talking encyclopedia from the future. While Booster is busy flexing his muscles, Skeets is flexing his circuits, predicting future events with the accuracy of a weather forecast. And we all know how often those are right!

Booster Gold may be the one with the shiny suit, but when things go south, who's the one saving the day? That's right, our metallic friend Skeets. When Booster gets knocked out, Skeets is there to pick up the slack. He's like the reliable friend who always remembers to bring the snacks to a movie night.

While Booster Gold is busy signing autographs and basking in the limelight, Skeets is the one doing the real work. He's the one navigating through time, providing strategic advice, and occasionally taking over Booster's motor functions. Talk about multitasking!

So, who's the real superhero here? The guy with the flashy suit and charming smile, or the small, hovering robot with the knowledge of the future and the patience of a saint? I think we all know the answer. So here's to Skeets, the unsung hero of the duo, proving that sometimes, the sidekick is the real MVP.

New Release: Superman 13

Imagine my surprise when I opened this week's Superman #13 and saw on the very first page this panel of a Booster Gold t-shirt that is not a Booster Gold t-shirt:

© DC Comics

What the heck is that, indeed!

If you're a regular Boosterrific visitor, I'm sure you'll recognize the guy in that panel above is clearly wearing a Graphitti Designs Booster Gold Logo t-shirt (released in 2010), just as the guy in the following panel (not pictured) is wearing a Graphitti Designs Blue Beetle Logo t-shirt (released in 2011).

Why is the Booster Gold shirt colored as though it's a Wonder Woman's tiara t-shirt? I can only guess that colorist Alejandro Sanchez doesn't have a closet full of decade-old Graphitti Designs t-shirts. (I don't blame the colorist. I blame the editors. That's their job, isn't it, to take the blame for the creatives? Darn you, editors!)

Fortunately for Booster boosters, our hero appears more clearly on page three... in a photograph hanging on the wall of Warrior's Bar — next to Batman! (Batman looks very happy about that.)

It's just a small Booster Gold appearance, but consider buying this issue to make Skeets happy.

Old Release: Firestorm the Nuclear Man 71

At the risk of turning Boosterrific into a blog of apparently random, marginally Booster Gold-adjacent comic book panels, here's another one. The twist is that this one, although published in January 1988, is brand new to Boosterrific!

Presenting Firestorm, the Nuclear Man #71, page 10:

I had somehow previously overlooked this page until FZ called my attention to it in a recent email.

I say "somehow," but I'm not too broken up about it. Nineteen eighty-eight was Pre-Internet, and back in the day the only way to be sure who was in what comic book was to read them all yourself, which I did not. Disclaimer: I still don't. That's why I need other people to keep me informed when they spot Booster Gold somewhere out of the ordinary... like in a background panel of an incomprehensible Firestorm comic book.

Thanks, FZ! Keep up the good work (by which I mean read more comics)!
