Would-Be World Conquerors Love Time Travelers

The previews at don't give the impression that Booster Gold will be in any of this week's new releases. That doesn't mean I didn't see Booster Gold while looking.

The plot of Multiversity: Harley Screws Up the DCU involves a time travel mishap that unintentionally allows Starro the Star Conqueror to take over the Earth. If that sounds like a familiar scenario, it's because it was also the premise of 2008's Booster Gold Vol. 2 #13.

And though modern audiences raised on Justice League Unlimited episodes and Tom King comics might be surprised to learn otherwise, it wasn't Booster's fault.

It was his 20th-century ancestor's.

Daniel's mistake allowed Starro to possess the original Time Master, Rip Hunter, himself. Two issues of hi-jinks ensued as Starro re-wrote the past and future to his own liking.

Booster ultimately solved his problem with the timely assistance of Chronos and Lady Chronos. Hopefully, Harley can find time-travelling love-interest/frenemies of her own to help. Seems to me she should give Booster Gold a call; he's not doing anything else.

This Day in History: Whole Lotta Time Travel

Are you old enough to remember what it was like to have Booster Gold regularly appearing in his own comic book series? If so, you probably remember reading Booster Gold #28.

In that issue, the reader is treated to scenes that take place in

  • 1990, the unfortunate events leading to the creation of Cyborg Superman;
  • 1993, the year Coast City was destroyed;
  • 2010, the "present" day; and
  • 2083, the future of experimental time travel Project Slipshift.

Not pictured is 2020, where we are now, exactly one decade since the release of that issue.

I didn't include it on my list of great Booster Gold comics, but in many ways, this is an ideal issue for any new fans interested in Booster's adventures and who are not yet indoctrinated into his (and DC's) history.

Everything is in here: Skeets, Rip Hunter, Michelle, Superman, the Justice League, time travel shenanigans, and of course, the Royal Flush Gang.

Booster will be back in the saddle again sooner or later. He could do much worse than the likes of Booster Gold #28.

I've Seen This Before

The way I see it, if you're going to steal a time machine, why not do it with some style?

Last week's poll question: Which time machine would you like to see Booster Gold "borrow" next? (65 votes)

Which time machine would you like to see Booster Gold

This weeks' "news" that Booster Gold is will could one day appear on The Flash — there's already some discussion that one of the show's characters is Booster in disguise! — inspires me to ask a similar question to one I asked about Smallville back in 2011.
