Booster Gold is a character created back in the 1980s by writer Dan Jurgens, who is also a longtime writer of the Batman Beyond series. Although Booster Gold is typically portrayed as a sort of comic relief, Jurgens often tries to incorporate the hero into some of the more important story lines.
Jurgens and Geoff Johns even explained away Booster Gold’s comedic nature as a deliberate attempt by the character to keep himself protected from other time travellers.
