Michelle Cater is the twin sister of Booster Gold. In the same fashion, she uses 25th century technology to fight crime in the 21st century. Michelle decided to explore the present, a time unfamiliar to her and "borrowed" the Goldstar costume. She later died during her adventures, but has since returned, having been saved at the last second by Rip Hunter, so there is some question, due to the mechanics of time travel as to whether she actually ever died at all. Michelle is currently being trained by her brother to be a Time Master.
Her death is later revealed as fully expunged from the timeline: since no body was found after the explosion, Rip Hunter actually plucked her from her designed fate to deposit her safely years after her supposed death. Michelle spends some time blissfully unaware of the deeper implications of her return, until Jason Goldstein, the villainous Rex Hunter, deleted from his intended timeline by the Time Stealers because of Rip Hunter actions, returns as a chronal energy being, forcing Goldstar to witness her intended fate. Despite Rex Hunter's defeat, Michelle is left deeply traumatized, and starts obsessing about her own death, strongly believing her life a glitch in the timeline resentful against Rip Hunter and Booster Gold for having hidden her real fate from her Goldstar disables Skeets with a powerful magnetic blasts, and escapes into the timestream to an unknown place.
Michelle's suit has been shown to have more powers than originally seen, as she can now fire energy blasts from her wrists like her brother, that still appear as magnetically based, albeit on par on the fully energetic ones of his brother. It is also assumed that her suit was altered by Rip Hunter the same way Booster's was, to protect her while traveling through the time stream, probably enhancing her abilities in the process, as Rip still has access to the same technology used to build and keep in shape the original Booster Gold suit.
However, she discovered she was supposed to die, and started believing that by being saved she was robbed of her place in the timeline. She then escaped, heading to an unknown destination. While Rip and Booster tried to find her, they didn't find any trace of her. More recently, however, she was revealed to be heading to Coast City in the eve of its destruction. However, Booster finds her in time and brings her to the present.
