- Booster Gold
Monday, September 2, 2019
Graeme McMillan and George Marston have ranked "The 10 Best TIME-TRAVELING SUPERHEROES of All Time!" for Newsarama.com, and — spoilers! — Booster Gold heads the list.
Perhaps comic books' top time-traveling superhero, Booster Gold may have started off his superheroic career with one simple time jump, but since then, he's teamed with Rip Hunter — who may or may not have been Booster's son — to protect the timestream from unwanted changes, only to fall victim to the rewriting of all DCU history via the “New 52,” where he's traveled into the past to meet Jonah Hex, and later went back to the future as part of Justice League 3001.
That's a drastic oversimplification of what passes for continuity at DC Comics these days (especially considering that the picture chosen to accompany the article is Booster Gold as Waverider from the nearly forgotten Convergence mini-series), but I can't quibble with their choice.
Booster Gold is unequivocally the best time-traveling super hero of all time whether anyone else has heard of him or not.
