Booster's origin has been retconned a couple of times, it should be added that he decided to be a hero in the first place because he injured his knee badly IRRC as a major football star and wanted to be a hero to recapture the glory he had a star athlete.
Now that's complete bullshit.
(That it happened, not that you say it happened.)
Besides before the new 52 I'm sure Giffen and Jurgens either had no idea about the retcon on their work, or chose to unrewrite history.
Or are you talking about the new 52?
Tiger Woods or OJ seem like real life Allegories for Booster,. that they would want a Time Machine to unshit their careers.
