Questions that came to me after reading the Convergence Booster Gold issue.
When new 52 Booster is making his escape he steals a time sphere that an unseen professor was working on. He even had a contact to fool the retina scanner into believing he was this professor.
Boosters' employer hired him to break in, apparently gave him the professor retina contact lens, and said to use the time machine to arrive a hour before. Now the two could be one and the same or they could be seperate people. Jurgens leaves their identities unmentioned for a reason. Unless they are the same person I have no idea who the professor is. Well I have a list of time traveling characters but not a specific person in mind.
The employer...I have a theory although I'm usually wrong about these things. I think it's the new 52 Rip Hinter. This person knows a lot of information and had to get Booster to the time machine just to get the item a hour faster? Why not a day or more? Now Booster doesn't know who Rip Hunter is, not by appearance or name which I don't think matters in this. For all we know he never met his employer face to face and doing so would make it harder to do so later on once Booster is a hero. It's all set up a little too neatly to get Booster to take his future partner in crime and the time machine which happens to take him back to the past. What do you think?
