Top-traffic game site IGN has started a countdown of their top 100 super heroes of all time. Everyday they've been unrolling more and more of their list. So far, they've revealed a little more than half of their entries and DC has secured a solid number of spots, with characters such as Black Lightning, Superboy, Jonah Hex, Booster Gold, Aquaman, and Barry Allen being included. Head on over to IGN to see the full list so far and keep checking back as the rest is revealed today and tomorrow.
TV Guide has the exclusive first look at Booster Gold and Blue Beetle as they appear in the April 22nd episode of SMALLVILLE written by Geoff Johns.
Geoff Johns describes Smallville's Booster Gold to TV Guide:
Following the loss of Blue Beetle, the JLI faces their darkest hour in JUSTICE LEAGUE: GENERATION LOST #21. Captain Atom is still haunted by the thousands that died in Chicago, and now Booster has lost confidence in their mission just as it begins to approach its climax. If only something could jolt them back into action...
So, Rip Hunter convinced Booster to go to the 25th century and stand trial for stealing the equipment that he used to become a superhero.
The verdict? Guilty!
Now, Booster's got to spend five years in prison for his crimes. But things quickly take a turn for the unusual when he meets his cellmate - The Perforated Man - a mentally unstable inmate who seems to hate Booster and not know him at the same time.
Check the story out in BOOSTER GOLD #42, on sale March 9.
Writer/artist Dan Jurgens will return to the character he made a fan-favorite in BOOSTER GOLD #44, which'll serve as a lead-in to the much-anticipated Flashpoint event.
See Rip Hunter's blackboard at the end of TIME MASTERS: VANISHING POINT #6? Then you know Booster's got his work cut out for him! Check out the cover to Jurgens' first issue below, chock full of Flashpoint clues.
WARNING: if you hate spoilers, stop reading now.
Remember the scribblings on the blackboard in 52? Well, they're back and in a major way in the final pages of TIME MASTERS: VANISHING POINT issue 6, on sale today.
How important might these mysterious scribblings be?
They lead into the pages of BOOSTER GOLD issue 44... And a comic book we call FLASHPOINT issue 1.
A look at the Blackboard is after the jump. This is your last chance to look away.
Judd Winick's JUSTICE LEAGUE: GENERATION LOST is approaching its final act, and he's given The Source a few hints at what's coming in the final seven issues... and at what will come afterward.
Here's what he gave us:
Back in the past, Booster Gold is mistaken for himself and embarks on an untold journey in space with Blue Beetle to obtain a rare and secret artifact. Needless to say, their mission goes horribly, horribly wrong…
Brought to you by writers Keith Giffen, J.M. DeMatteis and artist Chris Batista, BOOSTER GOLD #35 hits tomorrow.
