In the 25th century, 2462 AD to be exact, Michael Jon Carter was a professional athlete. However, Carter had the perchance for the easy paths in life and began involving himself in illegal betting on his own team. He was soon caught, arrested and his career was down the drain. When it became evident that he was going to be convicted, Carter dreamt up a new plan, to go back into the past with a cache of futuristic technology via a time machine and become a famous super hero like the ones he idolized as a child.

Carter devised a suit, using the various technology, that increased his physical attributes combined with his athletic background, the ability to fly and a gauntlet on one of his arms that fires laser blasts. Carter began calling himself Booster Gold. But Carter had a long way to go in his new life of super heroism, learning exactly what it means to be one. His actions dictated ambition and naivety since all he wanted at first was fame. He is followed by a sentient computer named Skeetz which contains a data repository on essentially everything.
