This Day in History: Ironic Museum Pieces

While Booster Gold has certainly gone through a dry spell in recent years, it's not the first time in his career he's been kept out of the limelight. The late 90s were also a dark time. So dark, in fact, that the Justice League made him into a museum exhibit.

On this day in 1998, Zauriel treated readers of JLA Secret Files #2 to a guided tour of the Justice League's trophy room. Among the relics of defeated villains and fallen heroes rests Booster Gold's original, 25th-century costume. Its strength-enhancing microweave and force-field generator were destroyed by Doomsday six years earlier, forcing Booster into a series of increasingly ugly and unwieldy twentieth-century battle suits.

That's what happens when a member is no longer fit for service in the League. They box up all the old gear and put it in their private museum. It's kind of a morbid way to look at heroics, but no one fights crime forever.

Speaking of which, has anyone seen Zauriel lately?
