No one likes to see their two favorite people in the whole world fight, but just like peanut butter and chocolate, heroes fighting heroes seems to be the name of the game these days. Which brings us to today’s fateful fisticuffs fretting – Blue Beetle or Booster Gold?

  1. Why are you making my sons fight?!

    Okay, if I HAVE to pick one, I’d pick Booster Gold. He has a more layered background (which his motives being a mix of redemption & self-serving greed), and he never had a story done by Steve Ditko where he went on & on about how modern art was destroying society. Sorry, Ted.

  2. 1st of, you guys are evil, mean, poopy-heads to have them fight each other!

    Pardon my French…

    But in all seriousness, Ted would win, simply because Booster respects the guy too much to beat him.

    Unless the winner gets chosen as some sort of champion with a 100% chance of death, then Booster will lie, cheat and steal his way to victory if necessary to keep Ted alive.

    He failed to save him once, he won’t again, ever! Okay no I have to go cry for a bit…

  3. Sadly, if I’m forced to pick, Blue Beetle would win. Booster’s tech is better, but Blue is smarter, stronger, faster and pretty much superior in every quantifiable way. Ted Kord is basically a kinder, gentler version of a merger of Batman and Spiderman.

    Who would lose in this fight? The universe. How dare you sir. How dare you.
