Added DiffLines:

* CapeSnag: After getting drunk, Booster admits to Skeets that the reason he abandoned the cape from his early costume was that a villain grabbed it, choked him with it, and then threw him around by it. After the fight was over Superman took the cape telling Booster he cant handle wearing one. Booster was more than embarrassed by this.

Booster Gold was the first major new character to appear in TheDCU after ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths''. He first appeared in ''"Booster Gold''" #1 (February, 1986), created by Dan Jurgens. Born in the 25th century, Booster Gold, born Michael Jon Carter, was a famous college football player, until he got caught betting on his games. After that, his life was a wreck: he was disowned from his family, expelled from college and he couldn't play football anymore. It wasn't until he got a job at the Metropolis Space Museum as a security guard that he got the idea to go back in time to become a superhero and make a little money at it too. So he stole the Time Sphere and brought along Skeets, a security droid that he had befriended.

Was the star of his own series once again, from October 2007 to August 2011, in which he roamed the timestream protecting history from enemies who -- if they ever saw past his foolish reputation and realized he was the one foiling their [[EvilPlan schemes]] -- would not only kill him but do it in such a way that Booster Gold never existed. So now instead of promoting himself, Booster had to do everything in his power to make people think he was an inept idiot, in order to carry out his mission to defend time itself. However, with the ComicBook/{{New 52}} relaunch on the rise, this series -- along with a number of others -- was canceled. Booster was in the ComicBook/{{New 52}}'s ComicBook/JusticeLeagueInternational series, though that has also been canceled with #12.

* BadassBeard: Rip Hunter begins vol 2 with one he'd had in his prior experiences. Then he goes and shaves.



* DemotedToExtra: Skeets, come The New 52. You'd be forgiven for thinking he'd been PutOnABus entirely. He's reduced to being part of Booster's costume.
