Booster Gold and Blue Beetle have been the comedic duo of DC Comics. The Ted Kord version of Blue Beetle was an original member of the 1987 Justice League. He was the tech savvy guy with all the cool gadgets that was not named Batman.
Booster Gold (Michael Jon Carter) is from 25th Century Gotham. He worked as a night watchman at the Metropolis Space Museum. He stole a lot of old superhero artifacts, including Rip Hunter’s Time Sphere to travel back to the 21st Century. His intentions were to become a famous superhero.
Blue Beetle and Booster Gold seem to always devolve into juvenile/adolescent behavior when they are together. Now that DC has put them back together, it should be a thrilling, fun-filled series.

Desperate to regain the spotlight, Booster Gold looks to attract the public’s (and Justice League’s) attention the same way any washed-up, second-rate hero would—social media. The not-so-tech-savvy hero from the 25th century enlists the help of his best friend, Blue Beetle, who possesses both the money and the brains to help his old pal navigate the scary world of internet influencers. Watch out, evildoers, our heroes are live and online! Don’t miss Dan Jurgens’s triumphant return to Booster Gold with the help of all-star artist Ryan Sook (Legion of Super-Heroes), telling a tale filled with heart and maybe even redemption for DC’s two favorite underdogs!
