- Booster Gold
Wednesday, January 31, 2024
Good news, Booster boosters! Booster Gold does appear in a DC Comic this week. Can you guess which one?
Hint: it's not the concluding issue of the DC Universe-spanning Titans Beast World event mini-series. Nor, despite having shown up in recent issues of the regular series, is he in the Batman/Superman: World's Finest 2024 Annual.
Nope, Booster Gold's appearance is in the one-shot DC Power 2024, a anthology of ten stories that, as the cover blurb explains, celebrates "Black excellence across the DCU" timed to coincide with the start of Black History Month.
To be fair to white-bread Booster, he isn't exactly crashing the Black Power party. In the entire issue, he's only seen in the above one-panel flashback to Bloodwynd's first appearance in Justice League America #61, which did, indeed, prominently feature Booster Gold. So at least it's an historically accurate cameo appearance.
As I've said many times before, I love DC's current strategy of holiday-themed anthologies because they give us readers the opportunity revisit the oft-overlooked, lesser known characters of the DC Universe like Bloodwynd. And, this time, to a much lesser extent, Booster Gold. Hooray!
Despite Booster only having a very small cameo appearance, consider buying this issue and making Skeets happy.
