It's horrible either way.

So is Goldstar. Supernova isn't so great, but he's made worse by that costume he wears.

Booster was his nickname as a College Football player, and Gold is because he... wears gold I guess.

I will not stand for this Booster Gold bashing! He's the best character in the DCU!

Batman is overrated, I've never really liked him.

The best thing he could think of for a code-name was his old football nickname combined with one of two colors he was wearing?

What about Goldstar? It said she has magnetic powers, so why Goldstar? It sounds like a medicated powder.

I don't really know.

Most superhero names are stupid, why pick on these?

It's the pick this week.

No, I'm half serious, I never understood Booster Gold or liked him as a character.

Went to get Time Masters today and... Sold Out. I'll try another shop tomorrow.

And I get to pick next week! Bwa-ha-ha! Another DC book it is!

My run down...

Image
GL Corps #50. Too obvious

Image
Very tempted as the full creative is here (unlike 9 weeks ago when it was the worst fill-in possible for Review Week)

Image
I love First Wave but #1 was done and the book is light on recaps.

This just leaves one book (and I was serious with that Bwa-ha-ha earlier)...

Justice League: Generation Lost #6

I thought I'd start with the basics, why's he got that dumb name and what's the deal with his D-list supporting cast. Don't even get as far as Rip Hunter being his son, at that point my head explodes like Vanishing Point. It's torn asunder!

After the preview in 600 (which was well discussed elsewhere) I'm not that excited so it didn't make my short list.

Just read Geoff Johns' run, it explains most of it.

Is this going to be hard to follow if I haven't read anything Justice League-related in about four years?
