Who are you talking about?
Out of all comic book characters, I just had to do it. I'm talking Booster Gold. I love his character and he is such a gooff that wants to be recognized for all the good work he does. It's said that no one takes my dude Booster Gold serious, but today I am giving him the attention he deserves.
Booster Gold did hit the TV screen back in Smallville played by actor, Eric Martsolf. He had the wow and pow of the Booster Gold character down!
Michael Jon Carter was born poor in 25th centuryGotham City. He and twin sister Michelle never knew their father because he left after gambling away all their money. Michael was a gifted athlete, attending Gotham University on a football scholarship. At Gotham U., Michael was a star quarterback until his father reentered his life and convinced him to deliberately lose games for gambling purposes. He was exposed, disgraced and expelled. Later he was able to secure a job as a night watchman at theMetropolis Space Museum, where he studied displays about superheroes and villains from the past, particularly the 20th century. With the help of a security robot named Skeets, Michael stole devices from the museum displays, including a Legion of Super-Heroes flight ring andBrainiac 5's force field belt. He used Rip Hunter's time machine, also on display in the museum, to travel to the 20th century, intent on becoming a superhero and forming a corporation based around himself to make a comfortable living. He is a shameless self-promoter whose obsession with fame and wealth irritates other heroes. Carter's nickname as a football player was "Booster", but his chosen 20th century superhero name was "Goldstar". After saving the president, Carter mangled the two names, causing US President Ronald Reaganto introduce him as "Booster Gold". The name stuck. In a running joke throughout the DC Universe, people erroneously call him "Buster" to his chagrin.
Now, rumors have been swinging around that Booster deserves his own series. I can honestly agree with that. Booster Gold is a time traveler who has ever ran into Rip Hunter (which most people know him as a time traveler with the current CW show) Booster's time travling and also being in the Justice League is pretty cool. Also how many evens have changed because of Booster Gold.
So I believe we should give Booster a real try and let him show his stuff and shine! Long with amigo Blue Beetle!

I feel like he's a great character because he kind of exposes the weirdness of being a superhero. It's not all glory (like he wants it to be), it can be kind of an awkward mess XD

That Justice League episode, I guess he saves earth from a blackhole, and nobody notices that is one of my most favorite episode.
