So probably my favorite thing about early JLI that a lot of people forget is how Booster was usually the straight man to Ted’s ridiculous asshole schemes. I mean, Booster was kind of goofy in his solo series but mostly in a fish out of water future boy kind of way – he really really tried to be taken seriously.
But then everything went downhill and he was only like 20 years old and and probably really lonely and his entire life had just sort of exploded and he didn’t have anyone and then he joined the JLI and imprinted on Ted like a glorious golden duckling. And man, you can see sooo much of Ted in who he later turns out to be, for better or for worse.
ANYWAY MAYBE I OVERTHINK THIS STUFF BUT BABY BOOSTER JUST KILLS ME
