Booster Gold, real name Michael Jon Carter, is a high-profile commercial super-hero from Canada. He is the leader of the Justice League International.[2]

The Signal Masters

Andre Briggs selects Booster Gold to lead his new U.N.-sponsored Justice League International. He immediately clashes over leadership with teammate Guy Gardner. Their first mission is a race of giant robots called the Signal Men wreaking havoc across the planet.[3] Booster's leadership is called in to question when they retreat, but August General in Iron supports him.[4] They investigate the threat underground in teams, and Booster works with Batman.[5] The entire team is captured by the alien responsible, a world-destroyer named Peraxxus.[6] They finally learn to work together as a team, and Booster leads them to distract Peraxxus in a brawl while Rocket Red reprograms his equipment. Peraxxus flees and they crash his spacecraft into Earth, declaring themselves victorious from the rubble.[7] This success gets them public approval, and Booster delivers a passionate speech to the U.N. delegates. Briggs finally announces the JLI at a public debut ceremony.[8]


Their public debut is attacked by a group of terrorists called the Burners led by anarchist super-villain Breakdown. Andre Briggs, Emerson Esposito and Rocket Red are killed in the explosion.[9] At the hospital he fights Lightweaver, and Batwing rescues him.[10] OMAC attacks the team, and they subdue then recruit him.[11] In Paris they help Jason Rusch take down a group of rogue Firestorms.[12] They track down the Burners, but the League is defeated and Intersek manipulates Booster into taking down his teammates.[13] Breakdown stages a public execution, but OMAC breaks them out and Booster helps August General take him down. He finally kisses Godiva to culminate their flirtation.[14] At Rocket Red's funeral, they decide to continue the team without government funding in honor of his sacrifice.[15]

Booster leads the team to regain U.N. approval, but they're disbanded when Brother Eye takes control of OMAC and destroys them. Using Skeets to infect his programming, he purges OMAC after the entire team is devastated. He's visited by a version of himself from the future who works with Rip Hunter as a member of A.R.G.U.S.. This future self warns him that Superman and Wonder Woman must be stopped, then both of them fade away into nothing.[16]
