The Last of the DC Comics Public Service Announcements for Now

This features Blue Beetle, Booster Gold, and Fire. Do you know these characters? If you happen to love these characters, I can easily say that you are a true comic book nerd. Even casual comic book fans have no idea who these characters are at all. Blue Beetle and Booster Gold are particularly known for their comedic antics. Remember Martin Lawrence and Will Smith in Bad Boys? Well, imagine them as extremely white superheroes who also blow shit up. Yup, they're pretty awesome. Fire is a Brazilian girl with the ability to turn on's green at least! Anyway, this is actually the most famous of all the posts. Why?

1) These two male superheroes are sort of acting like jerks as opposed to the common civilian.
2) Fire apparently lost a lot of friends to STDs. For a superheroine, she actually tends to spend a ton of time mixing up with crowds that would get a lot of this stuff. Well, it's interesting to see that tie in...
3) Booster is just looking so serious at the end like he is contemplating a new mission in life. I mean, I guess he is....but he's still Booster Gold. Once again, you may not know his character, so this analysis is meaningless.

Either way, even if you don't know the characters, you should appreciate what DC tried to do. As a result, tons of comic book nerds stay virgins....even to this very day. Oh wait...
