Waverider is a time-traveling hero from the Armageddon 2001 future. Born Matthew Ryder, he volunteered for a time-travel experiment to travel backwards and stop the despot Monarch from ever rising to power. He gained the ability to manipulate time, and later joined the Linear Men. During Zero Hour he is killed by Extant. However, the Matthew Ryder of the new timeline he created becomes the second Waverider. Ryder is finally murdered by Skeets during 52. During the Convergence event, Michael Carter, formerly known as Booster Gold, assumed the mantle of Waverider. Waverider was created by Archie Goodwin and Dan Jurgens, first appearing in Armageddon 2001 #1. (1991)
