“The Legends first encounter this character at a different phase of his career whose golden years are in the rearview mirror. He is a good guy deep down; his ego is looking for a boost that only fame, fortune, and glory can provide.
While he claims to have been recruited to work for a mysterious time organization, he wasn’t offered much of a choice”, That’s the official description and it seems like fans are going to get bewildered by the greatest hero ever, Booster Gold.
The casting of the Scrubs star Donald Faison is a piece of news in itself and the hints from desks of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow are pointing at the character of Booster Gold.
Although they are yet to reveal the character of Faison officially, it’s the character description that is making the news.
The 13th episode and final of season 7 is titled “Knocked Down, Knocked Up” and if Faison is playing the character of Booster Gold, it’s very good news for the fans. The episode is going live on The CW on March 2, 2022, and we will have to wait till then to know more about it.
The descriptions however claim that Faison’s character is “an unauthorized time traveler with high-profile aspirations, he developed mischievous steak and cuts a few corners along the way to achieving his dreams.
He knows all about the Legends of Tomorrow and finds them inspiring because they are the kind of heroes who started at the ground floor, as opposed to inheriting their powers from an alien planet, a spider bite, or wealthy parents. But the big question is whether his respect for the team is going to help the Legends out of hot water or get them into hotter water.”
As this is the official reveal, all the details are shared and you can get to know everything.
Who Is Booster Gold?
Booster Gold’s first appearance was on the cover of Booster Gold #1 which was released in February of 1986. Dan Jurgens gave birth to the character a.k.a the greatest hero ever. On the inside, Booster Gold has a very disagreeable character who is hungry for fame.
Eventually, he chooses a different path and earns the respect of many. Dressed in an impossible-to-miss bright gold and blue suit along with the Legion of Super-Heroes flight ring, Booster Gold’s partnership with Ted Kord in Blue Beetle is most famous.
The story of Booster Gold or Mike Carter is set in the 25th century where he is a college football star nicknamed “Booster”. His achievement and feats on the field earned him respect and assurance of a promising career with fame.
However, he gets involved in a scandal and loses his chance at a professional career. An opportunity arises when he gets appointed as a security guard in the Metropolis Space Museum. Mike steals alien technology and a time machine from the museum and decides to go back in time when he had no criminal records.
He joins with Skeets and time travels to the modern age claiming the title Booster Gold. Although his past points at him being a fame-hungry guy, he has evolved into a protector of history who is ready to drop everything to help someone really in need.
Previously Donald Faison played parts in Scrubs, Skyline, and Clueless and his recent casting for Legends of Tomorrow has got him excited. He went to Instagram and posted “I’m really excited about this and I want you to get excited too!! If you haven’t already, get on board and catch up with.”
In the talks with Entertainment Weekly, Faison said “I have been a fan of Legends of Tomorrow since the first season, and have always wanted to be a part of the DC Comics universe.”
We can’t wait for the official reveal of Faison’s character and know if we are going to see Booster Gold at all in the very last episode.
