If movie stars and athletes serve as the icons of our modern, sponsor-driven age, then surely super heroes would be the ultimate celebrities. Strap on a power suit, take to the sky (making sure to fly over any cities of influence) and do your part to save the world…after the cameras have arrived. It’s a surefire formula for instant fame.
At least, it seemed that way to Michael Jon Carter. Born far in the future, Michael was a star quarterback before he was caught betting on his own games. His reputation ruined, he stole a power suit and journeyed to the past, where he branded himself Booster Gold and used his powers and his knowledge of our future to mold himself into a super hero. Michael sought the fame he once had as a star athlete, and his new identity brought sponsorships, endorsement deals and a verified Twitter account. But it also brought something else—responsibility.
As a time-traveler, Booster Gold understands how delicate our timeline is, and he often finds himself protecting the timestream. But in the ultimate irony for a fame-seeker, no one can ever know it’s him. After all, if people find out what he’s doing, it could change history and threaten the timestream. It’s a responsibility that Booster Gold has come to take seriously, suggesting that there may be more driving this spotlight-loving hero than a simple quest for adoration. Even if he does spend as much time signing autographs as he does saving lives.
