deactivated and took with him. In the 20th Century he stumbled
onto a chance and saved President Reagon 's life. Booster

Booster and Skeets, his new Computer robot, was unfortunately
damaged and his uniform was torn and shreaded. During Booster's
time with the Justice League, he and fellow Leaguer Blue Beetle
took the time to reform their funds, and they created a new
company Booster Gold International which frequently did deals
with Kord Industries. During this initial forming Booster
and Beetle embarked on every type of money-making s cheme
imaginable. The two dabbled in every type of business deal
from hot muffins to government contracts.

a household name again and he even starred in a movie or two

on just one concept for making money. For a while Booster
and other heroes formed a group called Extreme Justi ce, but

Robot Sidekick Skeets is a product of twenty-fifth century
science, created as a mobile security guard and tour guide
for the Gotham Space Museum. Skeets was on duty the night
Booster Carter stole the museum's equipment and travelled
to the twentieth century. While Skeets attempted to dissuade
Booster from time-travelling, Booster deactivated the robot
and took Skeets along with him. Skeets spends much of his
time advising Booster on everything from tactical methods
in battle to social protocol at parties. A veritable storehouse
of historical knowledge, Skeets realizes that Booster's presence
in the past is not an alteration in the fabric of time but
is merely fulfilling the dictates of history. Skeet's record
indicate that Booster's presence in the twentieth century
was documented inthe twenty-fifth; as such, Booster was meant
to be here. Skeets is always careful to observe that Booster
follows the constructs of history even as he creates it.

Booster's Wrist Blaster generate a powerful Laser force, which
can hit with both a physical blow or an energy blast if desired..
Currentl y as seen in various comics Booster's blasters can
break through brick wall or m elt certain forms of metal down
but in a recent issue of Green Lantern it showed the blasters
were capable of matching Green Lanterns Energy power.
Booster's Wrist devices are
primarily the source of his powers. He must charge them and
expend certain amounts of power. Booster's contr ols are linked

much consideration about which actor looks the most like
Booster, I've come to the understanding that Kevin Costner
is Booster. I base this off of two movies.
Bull Duram and For
Love of the Game.
I see Booster as this aging athlete who is obsessed with
the idea of regaining some of the glory he mispent in his
youth. I think Booster is Flawed and there's no better actor
at playing flawed heroes than our man Kevin.

of Judo but, he is primarily
a boxer. Booster is also a bit of a Bruiser seeing as how
he spent his early life as a Football Player.
Upper Body strength is massive, but Booster
is not a fighter like Batman nor is he of the power levels
of many other heavies. Booster relies on his
flight ring and his forcefield to get him out of most problems,
but he isn't above running and he runs pretty well .

yet he isn't trained to the extreme as Batman or Black Canary,

am very hesitant to rate Booster's skill alongside those
of Batman, because I know to a certain extent that he isn't
even n the same category.
seems to me to be in the same League as Wildcat. His stamina
is that of a younger man, though his skill is probably that
of a Bruiser like the Atom. Booster Can easily knock a normal
man out, yet he's often used his flight momentum to disable
apponents and also used his forcefield to smash against
them. In terms of Raw strength I'd say that Booster could
lift a tender and very light 225 pounds
and only for a limited time.

5's Force Field Belt, the most powerful force field in the

Legion Flight ring has enables Booster the ability to keep
pace with most other flying super-heroes, but in no way could
he match the s peeds of flash or even Superman of Wonder Woman.
One of Brainiac 5's first pieces of equipment for Legion use-
the Flight Rings- are made out of Element 152, an anti-grav
metal created by Mon-El when he tried out for the Legion under
the guise of Marvel Lad. The ring has a maximum cruising speed
on Earth of 900 mph with faster than light travel possible
in space. The telepathic link the ring employs also has a
safeguard that keeps the wearer hovering even if he loses
consciousness. Other features unknown to Booster include an
SOS transmitter and tracking beacon actived by twisting the
L symbol clockwise a quarter turn.
