Booster GoldReal Name:
Michael Jon CarterAge:
: Heterosexual(Sometimes Flexible); Sexually DominantBase of Operations
: Metropolis Powers
: Booster Gold had no special powers of his own, but he has a powersuit that enables him to fly, and gives him super-strength. He is quick-witted and inventive. His wrist gauntlets generate energy blasts that ranged from stun-level power to destructive energy that could vaporize tempered steel, the form of energy they give off can be set to either the Ultraviolet, Visible-Light, or Infra-red spectrum. In addition to this he has his assistant/sidekick Skeets.Weaknesses
: Without his suit, and future tech he is just an average man, who normally bites of more than he can chew. History:
Booster was born Michael Jon Carter, an average man to an average family in the 25th century even as a child he always wished for something more. To be more than just average. First he wanted to be a movie star, then a musician, then finally in high school and college he set his sights on a sports star....Sadly his hopes(and ego) far outstripped his abilities and as he finished his schooling he was forced to face the fact that he had nothing to look forward to but a mundane existence.
But the desire for more never left him, never weakened, if anything it grew stronger until it was all he could do not to run off and do something stupid simply to keep from being 'normal.' Finally on the eve of his 24th birthday Michael, already a bit drunk, decided he'd had enough. Enough of being average, enough of his small apartment, enough of his dead end job, enough of everything that he was in his own time. And so that very night he broke into a bank. Hell bent on changing his life. Which he did....just not in the manner he expected. Before he could even begin to escape the authorities had arrived. Even though he managed to make a run for it in a stolen car he had already been identified and was being pursued.
The chase lasted 10 minutes before Michael accidentally crashed his vehicle into the glass display wall of a museum. The next half an hour was a blur of running, hiding, gunshots, and narrow escapes. During which he managed to commandeer a security robot, and grab several weapons and tools that were in different displays. The last item he grabbed was a time machine which he used to escape, along with his ill gotten goods, into the 21st century.
Upon arrival in our time, Booster used a credit card he had also taken from the museum to set himself up until he could make a living on his own. He adopted the name Jesus Alvarez on the credit card for a short time telling himself that he would pay him back as soon as he could. After he found a place to stay he quickly made use of his stolen technology from the future and Skeets' knowledge of events to come in order to create a successful company he called Goldstar Incorporated as a holding company for himself in the heart of Metropolis.
Currently wanted for thievery, assault, unauthorized time travel, and unauthorized altering of the time stream. If Booster were to ever return to the 25th century he would most likely be locked away for the rest of his life. He has strategically left out these details from the story that he has told everyone in the 21st century. Activity:
(Assuming it's ok with the GM/Dark Clown and fits in with our time line) Before the invasion Booster was at best a minor hero. Now that the invasion has passed he has been doing his best to establish a name for himself. Though a terrible blow for many the sudden departure of Superman has actually played right into Booster's plans and hopes. Using Metropolis's need for a hero given the absence of the Man of Steel, Booster has done his best to supplant Superman in the hearts and minds of Metropolites, and hopefully Americans in general. Known Enemies:
The Royal Flush Gang, SinestroAppearance without costume: Costume
:Equipment: Booster Gold:
Countless headlines of major events yet to come, Quantum processor allowing sentient-like thought. Small defensive weapon of the same kind as those in Booster's Gauntlets.
**I'm thinking he could be somewhat similar to Magog from Kingdom Come in that he feels this is his time rather than Superman's if that doesn't fit I'll be happy to change it

He has a notoriously volatile temper, which is made even more so by his own powers and has been known to lose control when angered too much. History:
Black Adam is the first recipient of the powers of Shazam. Born in the ancient Egyptian empire to Pharaoh Ramses the Second in the neighboring land of Kahndaq, Black Adam‘s mortal name was Adam .The wizard Shazam was at the time serving as high priest to Ramses II, and seeking a successor to his godly powers, became impressed with the virtue and martial heroism displayed by Adam. Having determined to make Adam his successor, Shazam’s intentions are altered by the intervention of his half-demonic daughter Blaze. Blaze strikes a bargain with the god Set, so that when Adam speaks the word “Shazam”, he becomes Teth-Adam ( Mighty Adam), the avatar not of the wizard’s deific patrons, but of the Egyptian gods Shu, Heru, Amon, Zehuti, Aton and Mehen.
Over his many years of existence Adam has seen his original wife and family murdered, he has watched his friends slowly age and die. He has witnessed the world slowly turn from a place of honor and discipline to one of foolish mercy. And through it all Black Adam has remained a proud and stern champion from another, more brutal age. Who does not hesitate to follow his own concepts of justice, whether or not they are in conflict with those of others. Black Adam takes a proactive, and decidedly bloody, approach to fighting what he sees as injustice.
More recently Adam was once again able to find love, this time in the form of a mortal woman brought to him by human slavers during the time at which he ruled Kahndaq. After killing said slavers Adam offered the woman, Adrianna, sanctuary. Over time both Adrianna was able to slowly change Adam from a man of rage and violence to someone more fitting with the modern image of a hero. And Adam fell in love with Adrianna, using his power and knowledge to bestow upon her the powers of Isis.
But this was not to be. Working for the Chinese government, a group of geniuses know as the science squad created Four all powerful beings named The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. These beings, with the aid of the Bialyan government succeeded in attacking Adam's new family and killing Isis and her brother Osiris. Adam's lover's last dying words to him were to seek vengeance for their destroyed family. An enraged Adam who's powers are now also bolstered by those of Isis managed to three of the Horsemen, with Death fleeing. Black Adam tracked Death to Bialya, whose government has participated in this attack on the Black Marvels. And tortured Death until he revealed all he knew of the plot, then in a fit of Luciferian rage, killed every citizen of Bialya.
Black Adam's quest for revenge too him to China where he singlehandedly slayed the most powerful superhumans in China before finally being stopped by combined the efforts of multiple Green Lantern's, Firestorm, Supergirl, th Martian Manhunter, the Marvel family, the Teen Titans, the JSA, and many others. Acting in concert with other powerful magic-users, Captain Marvel was able to transform Adam to his mortal form and change Adam's 'Word' so that Adam could not regain his link to the Egyptian pantheon that empowers him. Captain Marvel claimed it was a word Adam would never guess.
As a result, during the invasion Black Adam was absent entirely, as he was still attempting to discover his 'Word.' Several days after the invasion was repulsed Black Adam finally discovered his 'Word' after wandering through Captain Marvel's home town and simply repeating every single word he read there until he came across 'Chocolate Egg Cream' which was what Captain Marvel changed the 'Word' to. Activity:
Since regaining his powers Black Adam has gone into hiding, having been ousted from his ruler ship of Kahndaq, and denied his full revenge he still fumes over the events which befell his second family and plots how best to extract vengeance on all those he believes to be responsible. He has also through great effort managed to change his 'Word' back to Shazam.Known Enemies:
