Grittier Booster Gold

Postby holtom2000 » Sat Nov 16, 2013 5:08 pm

If someone started a thread about what was rumoured to be coming this spring from DC, apologies.. when I work nights I miss a lot around here.
But if the rumours be true, screw you DC.
Booster Gold isn't meant to be grim and gritty.
They tried that. It stunk.

If I had to pitch a Booster Gold comic, I'd make him like the Psycho Pirate in that he's the only one who remembers how Barry Allen F'd up the universe... I'd also team him up with pre reboot Ted Kord, his sister Michelle, Rip, and Skeets, who all avoided the whole reboot thing as they were in the time stream when it occurred.
This series would open up all sorts of crossovers between pre reboot characters and post reboot (as pretty much all of them would have been in the time stream at one point). Wally meeting Barry. Morrison JLA meeting John's JLA. JSA meeting the Earth-2. Etc.
Anyway my two bits... I'll be sorely tempted to get back into DC if they give me a Booster comic, but if he's 'gritty' .. I'll just roll my eyes

Even in the Extreme Justice book, he could still be kinda funny. Like when he and Ted lost a training exercise to the newly-recruited Wonder Twins.

I think the news surrounding the new Booster Gold series mentioned that DC wanted the authors to pitch them a dark and grittier version of the character but that doesn't necessarily mean that is what we will get with the final product. Hopefully somebody came along and just wrote a good Booster Gold story.

Yeah, I remember this series from the 90's myself. It was a fun book even though wasn't crazy about the artwork.

Booster Gold as a corporate raider? I don't think gritty Booster would work but i keep an open mind.

I have what beef with asians besides being tired of them being portrayed as stereotypes?
