Booster Gold Creator To Get Easter Egg In DC's Legends Of Tomorrow


It's not all the time fans get told which Easter eggs will happen on The CW's DC Universe shows before the TV program in question even airs.

On today's edition of the webseries DC All Access, though, the publisher warned fans to keep their ears open for a reference to a comic book writer/artist best known as the guy who killed Superman and created Booster Gold.

Just over 5 minutes into the video, it's revealed that "Jurgens Ridge" will get a name-drop on DC's Legends of Tomorrow, a nod to Dan Jurgens.

Jurgens, the creator of Booster Gold (as well as Doomsday, the Cybrog Superman, and a bunch more DC characters) wrote Time Masters: Vanishing Point, the miniseries most frequently-cited as an inspiration by executive producers in the run up to Legends of Tomorrow's debut.

Of course, this wouldn't be the first time Dan Jurgens was referenced in these series; Jurgens Industrial was the name of the office park where Vandal Savage first insisted that Green Arrow and The Flash came to surrender Hawkman and Hawkgirl to him. Due to the time-travel involved in that episode of Arrow, we saw that setting more than once during that crossover.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow airs on Thursday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW. Jurgens currently writes Batman Beyond and Superman: Lois and Clark, and will tackle Action Comics following DC's Rebirth overhaul at the end of the month.
