* Literally this second, [[{{Be}} I]] understood something about BoosterGold. During the 52 Pickup arc, Rip Hunter allows Booster to go back again and again to attempt to save Barbara Gordon from being paralysed even though he's completely aware it's impossible - until now, I interpreted that as Hunter simply being a complete dick in getting his point across, which I detested, but that's the point. He knows Booster well enough that sitting him down and explaining "Dude, it's going to happen, you can't stop it. It HAS to happen so Babs can become Oracle. If she doesn't become Oracle, shit goes down in the future. Same reason you can't save Ted" won't stop him, because he thinks he can do it. Only by letting Booster go back again and again and experience it for himself will get the point across, and so that's what he has to do.

* In the leadup to Infinite Crisis, Booster got mad at Batman for snubbing Ted in his investigation, something that indirectly led to Ted's death. Superman told him that blame would be laid later and Booster retorted "No...he'd have to admit he was wrong first." Months later(in our time), during Booster's solo series, Batman lets Booster know that he found out about his attempts to save Barbara and said this:
