Not a lot of Booster Gold news out of New York Comic Con this year. Is there really a Booster Gold movie in the works? Warner Brothers still isn't talking.
But while Warner remains silent, late-night comedian and writer Seth Meyers wasn't so shy. He held a panel at NYCC which Brett White covered for Spinoff Online.
"When I read comics, I loved teams. I loved X-Men and Justice League for that reason. Superman on his own is less interesting than Superman with Batman." [Moderator Jesse David] Fox then asked Meyers about his favorite X-Men and Justice League teams; Meyers called out the Blue Beetle/Booster Gold "Justice League" run and Joss Whedon's "Astonishing X-Men."
With fans like Nathan Fillion and Seth Meyers, how can we not get a Booster Gold movie in the works? (Thanks, Seth. We think that your show is pretty good, too.)

When reading Justice League International #2, I noticed something about Booster Gold's new teammate Vixen that is perhaps best summarized by Grey Scherl in his review of the issue for Comics Nexus:
Vixen is a complete and utter waste of a character who is here, quite literally, so she can point at a screen and describe it as her "Native Africa". Yeah. Vixen made the team because she's African, and that's her characterization. I'd probably be offended if I cared at all about the character, but I don't, so I'm not.
Otherwise, Sherl's review is very positive, giving the issue a rating of 8 out of 10.
To be fair, the series has been pretty up-front about the fact that most of its members were selected to meet United Nations quota. Add to that the fact that there have only been two issues of the new JLI so far. There's still plenty of time for Jurgens to develop the character, so maybe this criticism is unfair.
However, this brings us to the point I wanted to make, the point that many of us fans of the former DC Universe are still struggling with: how much of the personalities of the characters we love is still intact in the DCnU? Sure she looks pretty much the same, but it's been two months, and fans of Vixen still have no idea how the DCnU Vixen compares to their beloved DCU Vixen. Other than Batman and the Green Lanterns, that applies to most other characters int eh DCnU.
Until we get answers to questions like that, there is going to be some concern and resentment from fans about the new paradigm of the DCnU.

Booster Gold made his first appearance in the DCnU outside of Justice League International in last week's Stormwatch #2. Booster is clearly seen giving the moon-damaging Fox a taste of his own medicine in the villain's own secret Fox Cave.
The question in this case isn't whether or not the Fox deserves this treatment (he obviously does) or whether everyone has their own Insert-Name-Here Cave in the DCnU (they apparently do), but who is the Fox? Is this Fox the DCnU member of the Terrible Trio, a villain so minor he usually escapes notice, or a villain entirely new to the DCnU?
If you think you have the answer, leave it in the Boosterrific Forum or in the comments below. Together, this is a mystery we can solve.
