Surprisingly, the pre-New 52 Booster Gold has shown up now and again. Initially appearing to his New 52 counterpart, Booster disappeared -- quite literally in this case -- apparently as a result of Superman and Wonder Woman starting a relationship. He would show up a few more times, first in ''[[ComicBook/TheNew52FuturesEnd Futures End]]'', then in ''ComicBook/{{Convergence}}''. The pre-New 52 Booster Gold is set to reappear in the ComicBook/DCRebirth relaunch, in an arc of ''ComicBook/Action Comics''.

Booster Gold was the first major new character to appear in Franchise/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.

Originally intending to call himself Goldstar, at his first public appearance he flubbed it, [[AppropriatedAppellation combining his football nickname Booster with his intended superhero name]]. Booster then went on to be a part of the ComicBook/JusticeLeagueInternational, where he met and befriended [[GadgeteerGenius Ted Kord]], the second ComicBook/BlueBeetle.

After ComicBook/FiftyTwo, Booster 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 was also cancelled with #12. After that, Booster disappeared, quite literally in this case, apparently as a result of Superman and Wonder Woman starting a relationship.

He also frequently appears in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'', and in a few episodes of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueAction''.

* TranslatorMicrobes: The RedBaron, [[TheRenaissance Renaissance Italians]], and [[AncientEgypt Ancient Egyptians]] all speaking modern English seems like a lazy, irritating flaw, until the writers thought to add a [[{{Handwave}} quick line about Universal Translator Tech from the future]].
