Guess which superhero just got retconned into being Canadian?
Have a hint-- his tagline is "The Greatest Hero You've Never Heard Of."
And it happens to be this guy.
Yes indeed, Booster Gold is now Canadian and I am laughing so hard I am crying-- http://joeshusterawards.c...er-gold-is-now-canadian/
If you're unfamiliar with this character, part of why this is so darn funny to me is that he's such a...well, an American stereotype. He's selfish, showboating, always out to make a buck while doing a lot of self-promoting and crazy schemes ("Capitalist Crusader"), and his origin is even related to football. Yet at the same time, he's a pretty lovable oaf who has his heart in the right place even when he screws things up. And honestly, when thinking of superheroes that remind me of one Alfred F. Jones, Booster is near the top of my list.
I guess considering he's part of an international team it makes sense, and it's not like the character is just a stereotype either. It's just a bit of a funny choice all things considered.
