Booster Gold Is More Than a Cereal Mascot

Over the weekend, I was being teased by some friends about whether or not I'd be able to keep a particular New Year's Resolution I made. In response, I decided that instead of resolutions, I was going to make objectives (which sounds more aspirational than intimidating resolutions).

One of my New Year's Objectives for 2023 is to introduce at least one new person to the awesomeness of Booster Gold. I don't know where I'll find someone in my life who isn't already familiar with DC's greatest superhero, but I'll definitely be looking. I invite all Booster boosters to join me.

2023 may present us with some pretty good opportunities. In addition to whatever else it is that James Gunn has brewing at Warner Bros, there's still a Jaime Reyes-centric Blue Beetle movie coming this August. That'll give us an opportunity to enlighten new fans about the established superhero who originally introduced Jaime to his own super-heroic alter ego in 2006's Infinite Crisis #5!

If Booster Gold is good enough for Batman, he's good enough for you!

Help our hero get the recognition he deserves in 2023, Booster boosters. The future may depend on it!

Begin the Year with Booster's Best

While Booster Gold's victory over Maxwell Lord may have been short lived, it certainly seems to have struck a chord with our voters. Let's hope that Booster will get to have a showdown with his old frenemy one day in the DCnU.

Last week's poll question: What was the highlight of 2011 for Booster Gold? (38 votes)

What was the highlight of 2011 for Booster Gold?

Beginning next week, polls will be moving to Thursdays from their customary Fridays. Adjust your calendars appropriately. Since that means that this week's poll will run for 6 instead of the customary 7 days, let's keep it simple: this is the Best Booster Book Championship!

Coal in My Stocking?

Wow. It's a Christmas Miracle: this poll had 4 times as many votes as any other poll has ever received. (That's a response too good to be true. It looks like I'll be spending Christmas weekend working on better poll scripts!) Given the apparent demand, maybe original Dan Jurgens artwork needs to be sold by the panel.

Last week's poll question: Which present would you most prefer receive for Christmas? (168 votes)

Which present would you most prefer receive for Christmas?

Coming to the end of the calendar means that it's time to look back at the year that was. For Booster Gold, 2011 was a pretty eventful year. Booster was prominently featured as a major character in 4 different titles, participated in a unique tie-in to the crossover event of the year, and survived the reboot to lead the reimagined Justice League International. He even appeared in both animated and live action television shows. Quite an impressive list for a character still widely considered a b-list hero. Here's hoping Booster doesn't rest on his laurels in 2012.
