Booster Gold #47 (Bye bye Booster Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Aug 13, 2011 7:50 am

Another final issue, and one that worked pretty well I feel. I had guessed that Alexandra would be the one to stop Doomsday, but I couldn’t have predicted just how she would do it! That was a great scene, creative and creepy. I was slightly disappointed with how little Booster got to interact with Flash, and the way he got sent back to ‘the real world’ was a bit of an anti-climax, but those are small complaints. I just hope that Jurgens can pick up some of the dangling plotlines in JLI and that Booster remains the hero he’s become in that new book. Booster Gold has been one of the most enjoyable DCU books for the last 4 years and I’m sad to see it go.

I dropped Booster awhile ago because it taught me that I'm not enough of a DC fanboy to understand half the jokes but what happened to the little girl that he rescued from the future in that one issue?

That worries me. Didio has said that after Flashpoint the time stream is closed, which to me implies that Booster's mission will no longer be to protect time. As such, he may not be Rip's father in the DCnU, which was a twist I really liked.

That was a flashback.

Apparently Booster is the leader and only permanent member of JLI, other characters coming in on a case-by-case basis. Hopefully that bodes well for his continued development.

This wasn't as good an ending as Secret Six's last week, but it was still pretty good. I liked that Alex turned out to be the one to have written the Flashpoint stuff on Rip's blackboard.

Probably. Or they could be stuck in time like the Legion.

I also realised we never got resolution to the Black Beetle story :smt013

Damn, I hadn't thought of that. I wonder if that's ever going to be resolved anywhere. Since it's a time travel thing, it's probably going to be awhile before anyone can even think of touching it though. :(

Of the DC books that are getting canceled for this nonsensical reboot, I'm going to miss this book the most.

And it was so close to issue #50. I bet that if two of the issues during Johns's run weren't labeled #0 and #1,000,000 they would've double-shipped this book this month since it would've ended on #49, and like Teen Titans DC wanted to get to that milestone. I just wish I could've said that a Booster Gold book lasted to issue #50 today. This book will be missed.

I'm more of a casual Booster fan but I thought the finale was well done. Looking forward to JLI
