The Ageless Wonder

DC's squabbling New 52 Universe seems aimed at angry young teenagers too young to remember the 1990s. That's part of what makes this review of an outdated trade of Booster Gold comics so interesting.

Indeed, Booster Gold's eponymous series was never particularly outstanding, but it was one thing that made it stand head and shoulders above the rest: It was fun. In a world surrounded by joyless, ultra-serious grim-and-grittiness, we have a fun, irreverent, silly book which plays with the idea of time travel in a superhero shared universe.

I pulled that quote from "The Stuff of Legend" blog posted on Saturday by Levi Sweeney, a self-professed "awesome" high-school student. I think that's a pretty fitting description. I mean, any high-school who recognizes the greatness of Booster Gold should certainly be called "awesome"!
