Thanks for the quotes!! I'm hoping you are right about the content of the episode. I am really hoping that Clark is the one to encourage Booster to have a little humility. If Booster is going to tell Clark that he needs to put on a shiny suit and get out there....I hope he does it in a way that is really bad advice. There is no way that Booster should be presented as being wiser than Clark at this point and I'll be angry if he is.

Oh Booster is ALL about self-promotion. Rewatch "The Greatest Story Never Told" from JLU. I'm pretty positive that that's what he meant.

I know you are totally right. LOL I'm gun shy with Smallville. However, my guess is the same as yours. I think Booster will probably be shown to be totally vain and full of himself. Clark will probably be the voice of selfless humility yet he will recognize that he does need to have enough confidence to put himself out there.

Superman is such an interesting paradox to me. Because Clark is so, so humble. And I love that about him so much. Naturally, he doesn't ::want:: attention and yet the public needs him so badly---they need to believe in him--so he has to step outside of himself and accept that attention to be the hero the people need. I love that about him.

I just can't imagine that Geoff Johns would do that. It's not who Booster is. A lot depends on exactly where his timeline intersects Clark's in the Smallville universe, but I seem to remember GJ saying we would be seeing early Booster, rather than who he is now in comics continuity.

I really want to love this episode. *fingers crossed*

Me too. I'm really excited for it.

(I'm also more excited for "Kent" than I was before now that it seems clear that Clark is going to be truly shown as the light in Jonathan's life. I'll admit I had no desire to return to the AU at all but I like the idea of us truly seeing without a shadow of a doubt what we have all known: that Clark has been the light for the Kents. If the AU establishes that Jonathan, Martha and Lois are lost without him...I'm ok with that.)

You're right. Awhile ago, Geoff Johns did speak about Booster Gold's introduction.
Booster Gold's all about the spotlight. He's all about getting on the front page. He says someone needs to be on the front page and it's going to be me, if it's not going to be you. (Comic Con, 7/2010)

It’s very Booster 1.0, meaning he’s in the early stages of his career as a hero -- and is pretty self-serving. (Kryptonsite, 12/24/2010)
