Synopsis for "Booster"

While Lois helps Clark to develop a mild mannered persona, superhero Booster Gold shows up from the future to try and take the spotlight from the Blur. Clark confronts Booster and informs him that a true hero is not made by the suit they wear, but by who they are inside. A young teen, Jaime Reyes, comes in contact with alien technology that encases him in a weaponized robotic suit, thus becoming Blue Beetle. Unable to control the suit, Jaime begins destroying property and injuring people. Inspired, Booster recounts Clark's words to Jaime and helps him gain control over the suit. Afterward, Clark convinces Booster to mentor Jaime.

Trivia

  • Around the time of this episode, Geoff Johns was trying to get a Live-Action Blue Beetle TV series, centered around Jaime Reyes, developed.[1] This is why the episode has Jaime Reyes becoming the Blue Beetle, while skipping over the Ted Kord version of the character.
    • This episode might have been a backdoor pilot for a Blue Beetle television series.[2] This might be the reason for the absence of most of the main cast and the focus on the relationship between the two guest characters: Booster Gold and Blue Beetle (the latter never meeting Clark Kent).
