A star college athlete from the 25th Century, Michael Jon "Booster" Carter had a bright future ahead of him, but he was caught gambling on football games in which he played. Disgraced, he was expelled and eventually had to take a job as a janitor at the Space Museum in Metropolis.

While working in the Space Museum he studied extensively the heroes of the late 20th Century. Realizing he no longer had a future in his own time he decided to go to the past. With the assistance of a security robot named Skeets, Carter stole several items to create a superpowered costume including a Legion Flight Ring. Using a time machine created by Rip Hunter, Carter traveled back in time.

Foiling a plan by the criminal cartel known as the 1000 to assassinate the United States President, Carter gained immediate notoriety. Using his fame as a hero he profited by doing commercial endorsements and marketing his image as Booster Gold.
