Booster Gold
Real Name: Michael Jon Carter
Search for 'Booster Gold' on Amazon


Powers:
Booster Gold's powers come from the alien technology he stole from a museum in the 25th century. The suit he wears amplifies his strength, allowing him to lift far more than an ordinary human. Wrist bands built into the suit permit him to fire energy blasts at opponents and also function as communication devices. The belt he wears allows him to project force-fields which can protect him from physical and energy-based attacks as well as forcibly repel objects away from him. It can also serve as a pocket of breathable air, allowing him to travel through water or space. His goggles have built in magnification settings and allow him to see in the infrared spectrum. A ring given to him by the Legion of Super Heroes permits him to fly. Finally, Booster's suit allows him to absorb mass from one place and eject it again later either in its original form or as an amalgamation of melted matter.

Weaknesses:
Without his gadgets, Booster Gold is nothing more than an ordinary man. His force-field, while powerful, consumes an awful lot of energy and requires time to recharge before it can be used again. Using his suit to absorb and release matter completely drains the forcefield projector, leaving him vulnerable for a period of time.

In addition to all this, Booster Gold is a shameless self-promoter whose schemes for making money often get him into hot water with other heroes who are doing it for the good of humanity as opposed to doing it for the almighty dollar.

Bio:
None entered.

Booster Gold was created by Dan Jurgens.
