Blame It on Dark Crisis

As fans of Booster Gold know, the DC Universe is an inherently unstable place where status quo (and reality itself) can change at less than a moment's notice. No one is more aware of this than Booster Gold's best friend, Ted Kord.

Ted Kord has been the Blue Beetle since 1966. He's been a member of the Justice League since 1987. He's been dead since 2005 and alive again since 2014. And he's had a sister since... December.

And she's no fan of her brother's friendship with Booster Gold.

Booster boosters will remember that Ted was ousted as CEO of Kord Industries by its board of directors in last year's Blue and Gold #2, so it shouldn't be surprising that the board turned to his sister, even if we're just now meeting her for the first time.

If I have any gripes, it's that Ted has traditionally kept his participation as Blue Beetle a secret from the general public and other Kord Industries employees, but it makes sense he'd share his secret with his sister. I mean, Booster eventually told his secrets to his own sister, Michelle.

Wait. Is Victoria Ted's twin? That would be weird, right?

Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Starfire have already appeared in issues of Blue Beetle: Graduation Day. Will we see Booster in future issues? Only Victoria Kord knows for sure.
