It would be tough to include either of these individuals in your itinerary for Boxing Day. In Booster Golds case, his massive ego just wouldnt allow him to acknowledge anyone doing anything for him. Hed probably step out conveniently for the day, laughing off his uncaring stance on proper elitism etiquette with a joke at the expense of the servants, or, more likely, hed probably just say that his massive ego wouldnt allow him to acknowledge anyone doing anything for him. He might go shopping. AT A BLAZE COMICS STORE! If you offered him a TV appearance he might reconsider. But pulling that off would mean extra work for you, and you might not even be successful in getting the coverage in the end, even if it is about Booster Gold. In The Green Hornets case, Britt Reid would certainly be ready and more than willing to contribute to the joy of others on such an occasion as Boxing Day, but he just wouldnt be able to function properly. Britts life and success depend on master-servant relationships, and even more than that, a highly specialized team. Britt may be charming and effective in social situations, but Kato is the one who knows how the Black Beauty works! What if anyone wanted to go anywhere? Would Britt be able to take them? What if he activated the scanner or the rockets by mistake, or worse, caused the rotating floor in the garage to turn with everyone still in the car? Do those sliding walls and billboards open automatically or do they need to be activated? If a villain were to attack, would Britt be able to use Katos throwing darts with any level of accuracy? If the police were to show up to finally arrest that no-good Green Hornet, would Britt be able to maneuver everyone to safety? Think about it. Without the aid of Lenore Case, how do we even know that Britt can work a phone?
