Created by Dan Jurgens in his self-titled series in 1986, Booster Gold is one of the most quintessentially 80s superheroes, dressed in garish gold, and obsessed with his own image and celebrity. He came from the future, but he belongs to the MTV generation. And as a time-traveler himself, he has a typically convoluted backstory involving a dead sister, alternate versions of himself, and the usual confusion of crises.
That backstory is only going to get more complicated when Booster Gold is thrown into the mix of DC's Convergence event. Thankfully DC has decided to help readers out with a two-page guide to Booster's backstory, which they've asked us to share exclusively with you.

But which is the best superhero costume of all time? This month, we're asking you to decide, by voting up your favorites and voting down the rest. When we have your votes, we'll compile a list of the greatest super-costumes of all time.
This week we're looking at some quintessential costume designs decade-by-decade. Today it's five costumes from the 1980s, the decade that style forgot. But it wasn't all disco collars all the time; the era produced some great costumes as well. And maybe some of them even had disco collars. Right? Right?

In January DCC will roll out a new Death statue, a Frank Miller-style Superman statue, a Boost
Things have been quiet on the Booster Gold front for some time, outside of the character's appearances in DC's Justice League International series, but that doesn't mean that the time-traveling superhero isn't still moving towards world domination; the writer of the CW's upcoming Arrow series is about to hand in his script for the pilot of Syfy's television incarnation of the character.Talking to fan sit

If you've been paying any attention to the Internet over the past few days, then you've probably gotten wind of the Earth-shattering news broken by Irish filmmaker George Clarke, who discovered the shocking footage of what he believes to be a time traveler at the 1928 premiere of Charlie Chaplin's The Circus, handily identified by the fact that she's chatting away on a cell phone.

We here at ComicsAlliance have been trained by years of super-hero stories to keep an open mind about this sort of thing, so we went back through our own copies of Chaplin's features to see if there was any other evidence for time travel. And we didn't just discover one more, we found that there was undeniable proof of at least ten more time travelers in Chaplin's films!
It's no secret that here at ComicsAlliance, we're pretty big fans of good comic book-related music that caters to our geeky tastes, whether it's the rock 'n' roll of Kirby Krackle, the hip-hop of Adam Warrock, or even
