Did I not say Booster Gold in the very beginning?

As did I. It was almost logical... but coulda been anyone depending on the mood of the writers. :p

The reasoning behind it, only lead to Booster. Once all the pieces fit, it could have only been him.

That, and I kinda just took a wild guess. He disappeared around the same time. My backup guess was Superboy Prime.

Well the story is not over yet. The device that Booster was using was the Phantom Zone projector. Booster and Rip had been using the underground, of the fortress of Solitude as their base.

Uh-oh. All those space heaters probably weakened the foundation of the Fortress. :p

The Fortress was destroyed.

Yea... thanks to all those space heaters... d'uh. They'll just never get the blame they deserve.

Or it could have been Wonder Woman, does she count as a space heater?

She could warm me up anytime.

More on Booster. Seems old Rip was in the lab when Booster came in. He set it up so Skeets could not enter the lab.

Does any one really think it wasn't Booster?
He was the lead of the book until he died and since Skeets was still out and about it was a no-brainer that Booster was going to be the one to stop Skeets.

Where was this reveal? I don't remember it in 52 last week.

It is in this weeks number 37.

Judging by the threads, yes while Booster was a prime suspect alot of others fit also.

Ah. I can't get mine till Weds.

Is it really THE Booster, or is it the grandfather that got locked in Hunter's lab?

Mwynn

It is Micheal Jon Carter.

Lotsa folks saying lotsa things... it's easy to speculate...


Fun, too.

Yeah it was plenty fun trying to figure it out. I'm glad that it all made sense in the end though.

To be honest, I put Booster on the bottom of my list of suspects. I preferred the Carter Hall and Ray Palmer theories...or maybe I'm just a really crappy detective?

Mwynn
01-16-2007, 12:07 PM
Or they just did such a good job with story, being able to completely finger someone was not possible.

Mike225
01-16-2007, 12:08 PM
Yeah, that's true, too.

I knew it. But wait...
My primary suspect was his ancestor Daniel Carter, but the rooftop meeting contradict that by showing how Ralph already knew this man while Daniel would have been a total stranger.
So if Supernova is actually Michael Jon Carter AKA Booster Gold then who is the Booster that died in the explosion because we saw them together? Of course you can just say some shapeshifter took the fall but Skeets would have known the trick.
At what point did Michael meet Rip Hunter? If it's in his first break-in to Rip's lab then there are two theories in my mind. One, the Supernova we saw fighting Booster was actually Rip Hunter posing to dupe Skeets. The second theory is much complicated but I believe that there's a chance Daniel Carter and Michael Jon Carter is actually one and the same.

Anyway, it's been a fun guessing game throughout the series.

Booster robbed his own grave.
Rip was in the lab when Booster went in, Skeets was stuck outside.

I haven't read the book yet...is he going to resume being Booster Gold or stick with Supernova?

Mwynn
01-16-2007, 01:02 PM
The story is not over yet. Skeets is still trying to kill Rip.

R.I.P. Rip.

Ah, that made sense. But according to its wikipedia entry, it is said 52 editor Michael Siglain hinted that Supernova may be a name shared by multiple people based on the powers he has exhibited to date. So that might validate Rip posing as Supernova for that time only if the entry is correct (hey, it's wikipedia after all). Was that revealed also? Because knowing Skeets can detect and recognize his former pal's DNA structures, it's much too risky for someone to pose as Booster before he 'blew up' (or should I say, teleport to safety).

And one thing bothered me. If his ancestor was lost in time then how could Booster still exist in this DC Universe? But then time is broken and whatever so I guess he's now just an anomaly like Power Girl was.

Mwynn

It was all part of the plan to throw Skeets off. There was no reason for Skeets to scan Supernova.

Moonrider
01-16-2007, 07:13 PM
Yeah I know that. But who was in the Booster suit if not Booster himself? Did Booster fight another version of himself or someone else wore the Supernova suit that time?

Mwynn
01-16-2007, 08:01 PM
Nope it was Booster. After he "died" he went back 12 weeks.
