Re: Booster Gold (SyFy)

Yeah Max and perhaps Checkmate could be the main series villains. You could introduce Rip Hunter later on and bring in Michael's sister as well.

Re: Booster Gold (SyFy)

Yeah they won't use Ted...the proposed Jaime Reyes "Blue Beetle" series seems to have crashed and burned. If any Blue Beetle shows up in the show it'll be him.

Yeah, I know. I miss Ted. I always liked Ted. He was great. I never liked the new incarnation of the Blue Beetle--not Jaime, but this idea of a battle armor that can do anything. Sorta boring.

Booster Gold is a C-List DC comic book character and member of the Justice League. He's from the distant future (the 25th or 26th century, IIRC) and has traveled back to the present day.

Booster Gold is a regular human being but uses technology to give him Superman-like powers like strength, speed, and some degree on invulnerability. He's also in some interpretations "only in it for the money" and will take on endorsements and advertisements on his costume. Think of Greg Kinnear's character in Mystery Men.
It's not just that he uses tech from the future. He stole the tech. He was working as a night watchman at a science museum, where he liberated the tech, a time machine, and his security droid. I imagine an ongoing subplot could be someone from the future trying to track him down.

^ The Legion Since he steals a Legion ring as I mentioned before. That'd actually be pretty bad ass...Brainy sends the Espionage Squad!

Is it led by Matter Eater Lad? I could get behind that.

He liberated the Tech, a Time Machine and a Security Droid, that sounds pretty heroic to me

Berlanti? The guy who wrote that Green Lantern bomb? He's still getting offers to develop superhero properties?

I wonder if Syfy has the chops for this kind of thing, then again, I'm not really sure what the channel's identity is anymore.

That's Brianiacs force field belt he's wearing too.

That's some serious Cinderella bullshit at work.

Re: Booster Gold (SyFy)

Is it Brainy's?? I'd forgotten about that. I just remember the ring.

Yeah, it is Brainy's. There's a two-part storyline in the original series where Brainy, Ultra Boy and Chameleon Boy go back in time to track Booster down. Once they see he's a force for good, they allow him to keep the items he stole (also because they think he has a role to play in how history unfolds and they don't want to disrupt that).
