Booster Gold: The Puff Daddy/P. Diddy/Diddy of comics

May 16, 2012

I remember this pre-release ad for Mr. Gold quite clearly. It seemed to my young eyes that he had it made — the Magnum, P.I. of comic book champions. (His spotty, at times lackluster heroing was still in the future.) Usually you don’t see piles of cash and accoutrements like those unless rap or cocaine is involved. “Booster Gold: Women Love Him, Men Respect Him.”

Something tells me that there’s a gold-plated bidet in Booster’s pad. Just a hunch. THE 99% WOULD NOT BE PLEASED. Not sure if he’s ever fired a gun in a nightclub, though.
