Syfy Planning Booster Gold Series

Posted by at 11:58 am on November 22, 2011

Syfy has ordered a pilot based on the DC Comics character Booster Gold, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter. “Fringe” writer Andrew Kreisberg has been tasked with writing a pilot.

Created by Dan Jurgens in 1986 and featured in his own eponymous series, Booster Gold is the superheroic identity of Michael Jon Carter, a resident of the 25th century who travels back in time to the present day DC Universe. There, he makes use of his futuristic technology to become a hero, at first eschewing traditional heroic notions of justice and nobility and instead signing endorsement deals and shamelessly self-promoting.

Booster Gold was featured in the final season of “Smallville,” played by Eric Martsolf. There, he teamed with both Clark Kent and Blue Beetle (another incarnation of which was one of the character’s best friends in the comics). There is not yet word on whether this new live-action Booster Gold will have any connection to the “Smallville” appearance.
