Buy Booster Gold

Anything for a Buck

This week's Green Lantern #11 sees Superman supplant Elvis in a Nevada quickie wedding chapel. That's such a clever idea, I can't believe that Booster Gold didn't think of it first.

Booster is a natural huckster who has leveraged his super powers into celebrity and that celebrity into profit since his very first appearance. Over his career, he has run such diverse business ventures as a super powered repossession agency, a bagel shop using time-travel to gather ingredients from the past, and a hi-tech teleporter package delivery service. (You can find a complete list of Booster's many, many business ventures here.)

All of those were great ideas that have kept a roof over Booster's head, but none of them have propelled him back into the Fortune 500. So what unique business idea will make Booster independently wealthy?

What endeavors can turn a celebrity pitchman into a billionaire? What hasn't Booster tried yet? Founding a company to sell age-defying cosmetics (Booster Cold Cream)? Creating a name brand alcohol (Booster Gold's Lager)? Starting in a reality television show in which he advises less famous people on how to grow their own businesses (Business Booster Gold)?

To quote Mark Cuban, "In business, to be a success, you only have to be right once." Keep at it, Booster. Time is on your side.
