金色先锋英语Booster Gold,又譯作黄金后援)是一名由DC漫画公司创作的超级英雄。创造者為丹·杰金斯,他首次亮相于《金色先锋(第一卷)#1》(1986年),并成为正义联盟的成员,DC漫画全明星战队的英雄。该人物最初被设计为来自未来的探险者,有着历史知识和未来技术,比较高调的英雄。随着情节的发展,由于他个人的悲剧,他成为了一个为人低调却名气不小的英雄。

出版歷史[编辑]

金色先锋首次出现在《金色先锋 #1》(1986年)中 ,在《地球上的无限危机》之后,他作为一个重要的人物被安插在DC宇宙中。第二年,他作为一个常规成员出现在正义联盟系列漫画中,并且一直作为团队成员直到1996年该小组被解散,该小组让位给一个众所周知的组织——美国正义联盟。他和他的队友,随后出现“超级伙伴”中。

在 2007年3月16日的洛杉矶巫师世界中,丹·迪迪奥宣布了一项新的系列,名为《全新金色先锋》,之后出版简名为《金色先锋》。这一系列紧接着事件《52》,将由杰夫·琼斯杰夫·卡兹合作编写、丹·杰金斯和雷普穆德合作绘画。该系列的主要情节是金色先锋进行时空旅行到达DC宇宙的各时代与地区。系列中也有利普·亨特机器飞碟、超新星(丹尼尔·卡特)作为补充人物。该新系列的口号是:“世界永远不知道的最伟大的英雄”。

虚构角色传记[编辑]

金色先锋的真實身分為迈克尔·琼·卡特英语Michael Jon Carter),出生于25世纪的高譚市,家境贫困。他和他的妹妹米歇尔并不知道为何父亲离他们而去,事实上是因为他们的父亲因赌博而把家里的钱全输光了。但幸运的是,他是一个天才运动员,他设法进入了哥谭大学赞助的足球奖学金。在学校,金色先锋成为了一个出色的足球四分卫,并且有着光明的前途。但后来他的父亲重新进入了他的生活并说服他赌球。但后来他的行为被曝光了,光明的未来被打破。他在大都会找到了一份夜间看守太空博物馆的工作,在那里他开始研究过去的超级英雄和恶棍们,特别是20世纪。借助一个名叫斯基茨的安全机器人,他从博物馆偷走了一些装备,其中包括超级英雄军团的飞行戒指和布莱尼亚克-5的原力场带。他也利用利普·亨特时间机器,进行时空旅行到20世纪,他的意图就是成为一个超级英雄,并成立自己的公司、享受舒适的生活。因此,他是一个无耻的以自我为中心的人,且痴迷名利和财富的另类英雄。

卡特作为一个足球运动员时的昵称是“Booster”,但他在20世纪作为一名超级英雄时的昵称是“黄金之星”(Goldstar)。他救下当时的罗纳德·里根总统之后,总统介绍卡特为“Booster Gold”,因此卡特就将此称谓沿用了下去。

名望[编辑]

金色先锋原被设定于大都会,超人的城市。他开始了他的英雄生涯:阻止了刺客齐勒(参议员1000手下的一个特务)刺杀美国总统并夺权篡位的阴谋。因为这次营救总统的行动,他曝光于公众,金色先锋获得了许多广告和电影的片约。在金色先锋的超人生涯中,他的姐妹米歇尔·卡特,有一件磁力外套,也步他的后尘,成为了“黄金之星”。但她后来死于与另一位空间的莫名生物作战的战场上。在积累了一些小的财富之后,金色先锋创建了金星公司(后来的金色先锋国际公司)作为一个控股公司,并聘请德克·戴维斯作为其代理人。在千禧年事件中,戴维斯透露,他是一名伪装成人类的猎人手,并已抽走金色先锋帐户内的钱,为了让金色先锋别无选择,只能加入猎人手的计划。虽然猎人手最终失败了,但金色先锋也破产了。

能力[编辑]

金色先锋从未来博物馆偷来的物品中获得了力量。他的能量外套使他拥有超级力量,腕部雷管使他能够发出强力的冲击波。腕部雷管包含了基本的控制设备、通讯设备、监测通信频率的设备等。原力场带是他的战斗服的一部分,其产生的电路环流可使金色先锋避免物理和能量的冲击,他还可以使用原力场带产生强力以击退敌人,并能产生一种可呼吸的小环境。该原力场带围绕在金色先锋身上,但可以展开,甚至脱离。护目镜有红外扫描和放大的功能。除此之外,金色先锋借助超级英雄军团的飞行环可以进行飞翔。金色先锋也可以吸收物质并把它变成原始形态或融化形态,这使得他的原力场带一度能量耗竭。

經歷[编辑]

正义联盟[编辑]

金色先锋与他的友人藍甲蟲

金色先锋是一个80年代末、90年代初在《正义联盟》中的重要的人物,是由作家凯斯·吉芬约翰·马克·德马泰斯对《正义联盟》进行的重新修订。金色先锋经常与蓝甲虫结伴而行,他们迅速成为了朋友。他们俩在公众场合显得更引人注意,并把回购建造娱乐博彩中心(国际正义联盟俱乐部,在酷伊酷伊酷伊岛上)也算入了他们的账内。

由于他对声誉太多贪得无厌的向往,金色先锋退出了联盟,并建立了联合大企业,其资金是来自于该团队的赞助商。金色先锋和他的团队有决心履行英雄的职责,但发觉他们的赞助商观点保守且改变的过于频繁。在金色先锋重新加入联盟之后,联合大企业多次重组,虽然没有多大的成功。

毁灭日来到地球并四处横行。金色先锋随后与毁灭日战斗,金色先锋的战斗服在战斗中被摧毁了。蓝甲虫随后给金色先锋设计一件新的战斗服,虽然这套新的战斗服常常出故障。在后来不久与战斗与征服者的战斗中,金色先锋差点丧命并失去了手臂。这次,蓝甲虫又伸出援手,设计了一套全新的战斗服,除了复制的了助推器以前的服装的能力以外还添加一个生命支持系统。这套战斗服还包括一个机械控制的手臂,以取代金色先锋所失去的手臂。

极端正义[编辑]

正义联盟解散之后,金色先锋加入了极端正义(一个团队),由原子队长所领导。作为一名团队队员,金色先锋与超级反派君主达成了一笔交易,他完全治愈了金色先锋的伤,让他可以不再需要战斗服。金色先锋披上了一件新的战斗服,由蓝甲虫所创造,斯基茨作为主机系统控制器。

由于极端正义的解散,这件衣服也被丢弃。哈密尔顿博士又制作了一件新的衣服,基于25世纪科技的服装,跟超人穿的那套能量外套相差无几。这件衣服的外观与他原来的那件衣服更像了。

无限危机[编辑]

无限危机倒计时[编辑]

认同危机之后,金色先锋挂起了他的战服,并从打击犯罪之中隐退,以协助蓝甲虫发现谁在操纵科德产业。金色先锋在蓝甲虫家中的一场爆炸中被炸伤,且他的伙伴斯基茨已经被国际象棋大卸八块了。

OMAC计划[编辑]

OMAC工程系列期刊中,金色先锋召集原国际正义联盟的英雄去调查蓝甲虫的下落。在一系列的结尾,他在肉体和精神上受到很大的创伤,并且在战斗中,大部分的装备被损坏。他看到了他的朋友红火箭战死在沙场。他发现另一位朋友,麦克斯韦尔·罗德,就是杀死蓝甲虫的凶手。事实上,麦克斯韦尔·罗德一直痛恨超级英雄。他也失去了其他DC宇宙中英雄的信任。他自我反省,意识到如果他能够获得更多的在他的未来时代的历史,他可能已经能够向他的朋友发出提前警告了。他给了躺在病床上的战友一个热吻之后,他将他的护目镜丢到了地板上,只说了一句:“我已经决定回家”,言下之意就是他将回到25世纪。

无限危机[编辑]

无限危机中,金色先锋跟斯基茨在位于月球上的正义联盟瞭望塔的废墟中重新出现,他因为“抢劫记录”而被认定为罪犯,他和斯基茨都不能再回到25世纪。斯基茨未能找到缺席的火星猎人的位置,金色先锋找到了海梅·雷耶斯,并及时将他带到了蝙蝠洞中。金色先锋告诉了蝙蝠侠一些他们从25世纪获得的历史记录:因为兄弟眼被蒙蔽起来,所以蝙蝠侠现在无法找到它,但金色先锋告诉蝙蝠侠:他们能胜任这项工作,因为这个小子(指海梅·雷耶斯)是世界上唯一一个能找到兄弟眼的人。最后任务很成功,金色先锋也在摧毁兄弟眼方面立了大功。

《52》与超新星[编辑]

《52》中“超新星”,费尔·西门尼斯所画

在《无限危机》之后,超人蝙蝠侠神奇女侠暂时退休,其他英雄,出席在大都会举办超级男孩的纪念仪式。金色先锋出席纪念仪式,超人蝙蝠侠神奇女侠没来这是在他预计之中的,他猜他的机器死党斯基茨有点失灵。之后斯基茨报告了一些错误的历史数据,于是金色先锋前往他的时间旅行同伙利普·亨特的沙漠地堡中寻找答案,但发现其中只有神秘的潦草的笔记。其中金色先锋找到了一些他和斯基茨的图片,且旁边写着“他的错”这三个字,并用箭头指向了金色先锋。

金色先锋貌似对最近闯入大都会的新超级英雄超新星有些反感。他的名声毁于各种不道德的旨在追求宣传和赞助的交易合同上,金色先锋尝试重新赢得人们的注意[1]

One Year Later[编辑]

Following the events of 52, Booster Gold returns in his second solo series with the first story arc "52 Pick-Up". Booster puts in a request to the Justice League that they admit him and the group begrudgingly decide to monitor him over the following week. However, Rip Hunter informs Booster that history has become malleable after Mister Mind's rampage and earlier damage to the timeline.

A new villainous Supernova arises after stealing Daniel's costume, and aided by evil time traveler Rex Hunter, intends to exploit weaknesses in history, keen on rewriting it and destroying the League (they are later revealed to in fact be working under the orders of the Ultra-Humanite, Despero, and Per Degaton). As Booster is thought of as a buffoon, the person or persons behind the altering of time will not suspect he is thwarting them, but Booster must maintain his poor reputation to protect himself. Booster's condition for following Rip's orders is that he may travel back in time to avert the death of his best friend, Ted Kord.

Despite Rip's objections, Booster and three 蓝甲虫s team up to rescue Kord moments before his death. They succeed, and the restored Blue/Gold duo deserts Rip Hunter to side with the Blue Beetles group. Rip retaliates by presenting Michael's ancestors Daniel Carter and Rose Levin with replicas of the Supernova and Booster Gold suits, stating that the Carter family's heroic legacy starts "right freakin' now."[2] When time "solidifies" following Kord's rescue, and the other three Beetles return to their own times, Ted and Michael find that as a consequence of changing the timeline, the world has become overrun by Maxwell Lord's OMACs.

During a final battle between the remade JLI and the OMACs, the Time Stealers return and are defeated. However, Booster suffers a tragedy when he is unable to stop Ted from entering a time sphere with the 黑甲虫 to change the past one final time, resetting history and sacrificing himself.

He is later transported to the 853rd century, where he faces off against Peter Platinum, a con artist who is attempting to outdo Booster at making money off of heroic acts. When returned to the present, he is enraged by Rip's unsympathetic responses to his ordeal and quits. Batman tells Booster that he knew about Booster's attempts to prevent the crippling of Barbara Gordon and has long realized that Booster is not the fool he appears to be, offering his friendship. Booster resolves to continue working with Rip, even if it will not be "fun". Rip reveals that he is able to save Booster's sister Michelle from moments before she died, claiming there is a loophole due to Michelle being from the future. It is also revealed to the audience that Hunter is Booster's son: as Michelle and Michael go out to eat, Rip says "Keep it up, dad."[3]

Booster has shown his dedication, now calling himself a "Time Master", (with Hunter), and trains his sister.[4]

《极黑之夜》[编辑]

File:Black Lantern Blue Beatle (Ted Kord).jpg
Booster Gold in the sights of Kord as a Black Lantern

In a tie-in to the Blackest Night event, Booster faces Ted Kord, reanimated as a Black Lantern. At first unavailable due to reliving Ted's funeral in the past, he returns to meet his ancestor Daniel Carter, only to find the crashed, derelict Bug at his house. Then, he finds the Black Lantern pummeling Jaime Reyes, Daniel, and Skeets.[5] Attacked by him, he removes Daniel and Rose from the scene and heads to Kord Industries to arm himself. He uses a special light gun designed by Ted to blast the corpse and separate the ring with light, simulating the emotional spectrum.

Upon separating the corpse from the ring, he collects Ted's remains before the ring can reanimate them and takes them into the Time Sphere to Vanishing Point Fortress to secure them. He is somewhat relieved when Skeets uses the Fortress's special chronal surveillance equipment to display images of the days of Team Blue and Gold. Jaime promises to live up to Kord's legacy and eventually form a new Blue and Gold team. They find evidence at the warehouse of someone else entering, even though the doors were genetically coded, with only two people cleared for access: Ted and Booster.[6]

《极白之昼》[编辑]

Booster next finds his sister living in Coast City mere hours before its destruction. Though unable to save her boyfriend, Booster and Michelle patch up their relationship, with her agreeing not to leave him. This arc introduces an older Booster Gold, the man that trained Rip Hunter and was the master of both Time, the Multiverse, and Hypertime. Rip reveals that this Booster is not only his father, but also has been watching Rip training the young Booster Gold, aiding him when needed. Older Booster also reveals that he is still married to Rip's mother, and that Michelle is with them in some unknown time.[7]

In Justice League: Generation Lost, Booster is part of the manhunt to bring the resurrected Maxwell Lord to justice. He finds Max but is beaten badly. Fire, Ice, and Captain Atom find him just as Lord uses his psychic powers to the utmost to erase all memory of himself from the minds of the entire world. For some reason, Booster, Fire, Ice, and Atom are the only ones who remember Lord and see him in recorded images.[8] Trying to convince Batman (Dick Grayson), Booster is horrified to learn that, thanks to Max, the world believes Ted Kord committed suicide. Fire, Ice, and Captain Atom are soon set up by Max to cut them off from allies, but, ironically, Booster is left alone because his reputation is already poor.[9]

重返JLI[编辑]

The remnants of the JLI are, seemingly by chance, joined by the successors of Blue Beetle (Jaime Reyes) and Rocket Red. Rocket Red declares the newly formed team as the new Justice League International, prompting Booster to figure out that Max Lord manipulated them to be together. Later, during the assault on Checkmate, Fire and Ice discuss how Booster has become the leader of the team.[10]

When his team member, Jaime, is kidnapped and tortured by Max, Jaime signals the rest of the JLI to lead them to Max's headquarters. The JLI arrives too late, and Jaime is shot in the head by Max, killing him in the same manner as his predecessor, Ted Kord.[11] Booster Gold is enraged and his team tries to take down Max, but Max escapes from the JLI using one of his headquarters' escape pods. The JLI carries Jaime to the land surface, where paramedics try to resuscitate him. However, their efforts fail as Jaime had already died.[12] As the team deals with the loss of Jaime, Booster Gold blames himself for leading the team into so much danger, and wants to abdicate as leader. The rest of the team overhear his ranting and convince him that they believe in him. Gold is still upset, saying they cannot win against Max, when Blue Beetle suddenly sits up, his wound healed, declaring he knows Max's ultimate plans and that they can stop him.[13]

While the JLI learn that Jaime is alive, Batman and Power Girl join the team. Meanwhile, Max sends the OMACs to attack the JLI.[14] While the JLI are battling against OMAC Prime, Booster locates Max's flying headquarters and attacks it to come face-to-face with Max.[15] During the battle, Booster pulled Max out of the headquarters and ends up falling to the earth. Booster Gold saves Max at the last moment, but Max mind-controls him until he is confronted by Captain Atom. Captain Atom forces Max to undo the global mindwipe. Max then teleports to escape. Afterwards, Booster and Batman set out to re-form the JLI.[16]

《闪点》[编辑]

After the Time Masters: Vanishing Point event, Rip Hunter informed them that someone sneaked into their base leaving a message on the chalkboard.[17] When Earth entered an alternate timeline due to the actions of the Flash, Booster and Skeets awaken and are the only ones who remember the original timeline. Gold travels to Coast City, but US soldiers attack him mistaking him to be an Atlantean threat. Skeets is damaged when Gold is attacked by the military's Project Six, which is revealed to be Doomsday.[18]

During the battle in Coast City, he discovers that Doomsday is controlled by General Nathaniel Adam. He escapes from Doomsday and then saves a woman named Alexandra Gianopoulos from Doomsday's attack. He learns the timeline has been changed, suspecting Professor Zoom. Alexandra and Booster split up, but she secretly has powers allowing her to take others' powers and follows him. Later, he flies to Gotham City when Doomsday attacks him. General Adam's control link is destroyed by Alexandra in an attempt to rescue Booster. Doomsday's true personality comes to the surface and he attacks Booster.[19] During the fight, Doomsday beats him nearly to death, but he is rescued by Alexandra. He tries to prevent Doomsday from killing innocent people, and manages to put Doomsday's helmet back on. Doomsday's control is restored to Adam, who grabs Booster, hoping to kill him.[20] Fortunately, Adam takes him back to the base for interrogation, allowing him to escape when the sight of "Project Superman" causes Doomsday's true personality to resurface. Alexandra defeats Doomsday by using the control helmet to make Doomsday tear himself apart, subsequently asking Booster to take him with her when he restores history to normal. Alexandra subsequently sacrifices herself to save Booster from an Atlantean attack, leaving him to return to Vanishing Point as history resets without any clear memory of his time in the "Flashpoint" universe. Before the "Time Masters: Vanishing Point", Alexandra appeared and left the messages regarding the altered timeline on Rip's chalkboard before vanishing.[21]

《新52》[编辑]

Booster's next appearance was as part of the new Justice League International series launched in September 2011.[22] In the post-Flashpoint continuity, Booster is portrayed with his original glory-seeking personality and is chosen by the U.N. to lead the JLI due to his PR sense and naiveté. He takes his leadership role seriously, and strives to become a better hero and role model.[23] However, despite his best efforts and support from Batman, who officially defers to Booster's leadership after supporting Booster for leader, the JLI falls apart due to a string of attacks against the group that leaves members killed or wounded.[24] Despite his best attempts to bring in new members however, Booster alienates Guy Gardner when he recruits Jaime Reyes into the roster and later watches in horror as the hero OMAC betrays the team and inflicts more carnage, including teleporting Blue Beetle to the homeworld of the villainous "Reach" species.

In the end, Gold is confronted with what appears to be an older version of him, an agent of ARGUS who warns his present self to prevent Superman and Wonder Woman from dating. Failure to prevent it would cause Booster Gold to cease existing. As the JLI monitor reveals Superman and Wonder Woman kissing, the future Gold disappears; saying he "shouldn't have trusted him"—referring to Rip Hunter. The present day Gold disappears moments later.[25] Amanda Waller orders Chronos to search for Gold through time, but Chronos is captured by the Secret Society before carrying out his mission.[26] The older Booster Gold mysteriously reappears in other timelines, like 19th Century Gotham City.[27] In Booster Gold: Futures End #1, the older Booster clarifies he is not an older version of the New 52 Booster, but an older version of him from a universe which has ceased to exist (such as the pre-Flashpoint universe). The older Booster is sent careening through the timeline, eventually meeting up with his sister, Michelle, who is in a version of Metropolis which has been sealed in a bubble by a godlike version of Brainiac. They are teleported to where the younger, New 52 Booster is held captive by Brainiac. Brainiac threatens to kill Michelle unless the younger Booster gives up the location of Vanishing Point, which he concedes. The older Booster knows this could lead to the end of the Multiverse, setting up the events of Convergence, Earth 2: Worlds' End and The New 52: Futures End.

In Convergence: Booster Gold #2, following on from this event somewhat, the aged pre-Flashpoint Booster encounters the Zero Hour Ted Kord on the planet Telos, where Brainiac has gathered cities from across the history of the Multiverse. Booster explains to Kord that he has led a good life, married and had a son (Rip Hunter), and begins to age rapidly from time travel radiation sickness. Rip intervenes and forces the New 52 Booster to take his father into the raw chronal field contained at Vanishing Point; pre-Flashpoint Booster's body is destroyed, but he is reborn as Waverider, the all-knowing cosmic time traveller. Waverider then emerges on Telos in the final issue of Convergence along with the New 52 Booster and Goldstar to bring back Brainiac, and they convince him to save the Multiverse from its imminent destruction. Brainiac then sends Zero Hour Parallax and pre-Flashpoint Superman back to the conclusion of the Crisis on Infinite Earths to avert the original crisis event, and this results in many of the classic worlds of the Multiverse being reborn in their modern forms.

Alternate versions of Booster Gold and Blue Beetle as they were prior to Countdown to Infinite Crisis appear in the pages of Justice League 3000 #14, where they are awaken from a 1000-year suspended animation on Takron-Galtos in the 31st century. According to Keith Giffen, "they're J.M. DeMatteis and my Blue Beetle and Booster Gold". [28]
