Booster Gold #30

The conflict, whether explicit or implicit (depending on the issue), central to the current Booster Gold comic is how a hero can allow awful events to unfold when he might have the power to stop them.

Here Booster is reunied with Michelle just minutes before the end of Coast City. It’s in these moments that time traveler Sondra Crain asks Booster the question our time-traveling hero still hasn’t work out quite yet: How can he call himself a hero and let millions die at the same time?

Sooner or late,r whether it’s current write Dan Jurgens or someone else, Booster is going to have to sit down and make some hard decisions and come up with his own definition and philosophy of a time traveling hero. Here where given a tiny glimpse of the future of our hero, but for now I guess we’ll just sit back and enjoy the ride.

[DC $2.99]
