    It seems like Syfy announces a ton of development pickups... and probably every other network does the same -- I don't know, I don't follow this stuff that closely.

    But for those who do, about what % of the projects that Syfy announces actually make it to the pilot stage, and ultimately, to series?

    My biggest problem with Booster is he has no rouges gallery to play off of. I am sure we could borrow some secondary villians from the DC universe to populate this but who to choose? There are a few time traveling Villians they could toss in and Per Degaton would be my number one choice. An end of season LSH cliffhanger appearance is almost a must. Will they dare to base him in Metropolis?

    I don't know the exact %, but there is a lot of stuff that we hear about that doesn't make it past the pilot or script stage. So I wouldn't get any hopes up until we actually see at least a second or third episode of the show.

    They could follow the lead of the original series and have the criminal organization "the 1000" as the main bad guys, with various villains in their employ.

    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.

    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.

    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 :D

    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.

    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).
