Thank You, Green Lantern

Last week's announcement of Justice League Action reminds us that it's been ten years since Justice League Unlimited went off the air. To celebrate this sad anniversary, Darren Bonthuys at lazygamer.net has listed his ten episodes that exemplify why JLU is the model that all future superhero cartoons should emulate. Included in his list is what is arguably Booster Gold's finest hour: "The Greatest Story Never Told."

Choosing to be a superhero, is an inherently noble act. Donning a mask, risking your life and fighting a neverending battle is a thankless task which doesn't exactly pay the bills. And then there's Booster Gold. Unlike heroes who are motivated solely by grief or a better nature, Booster Gold is in it for the fame.

I don't agree with Bonthuys entire list (frankly, I consider "Clash" to be a terrible episode), but I can't deny that "The Greatest Story Never Told" is my favorite of the series. In showcasing the story of a side-lined b-list hero, the episode demonstrates that every character can be interesting and worthwhile. Knowing Booster Gold is on crowd control makes the entire DC Universe more interesting.

Of course, we can't discuss this show without offering a special thank you to episode writer Andrew Kreisberg. That the person responsible for Booster's best television moment is the same man partially responsible for shepherding the live-action DC Universe remains encouraging. At the very least, Kreisberg "gets" Booster Gold, and it seems likely that whenever Booster Gold does return to the small screen, he'll be exactly the character we expect him to be.

Meanwhile, how will Booster Gold's appearances on Justice League Action stand up against "The Greatest Story Never Told"? Let's hope for the best.
