Joe Illidge Promises No "Booyahs" in Catalyst Prime Comic Books

There now follows a spoiler for Justice League, recently released by Warner Bros. If you are intending to see the film and care about this sort of thing, you can stop reading now.

Because at the end of the film, when the day has been saved and heroic deeds have been done, the CGI-realised character of Cyborg looks up and out, saying the word "Booyah". Defined as an impudent exclamation similar to "in your face" and popularised by sports commentator Stuart Scott.

The character got into the habit of saying the word in the Teen Titans comics and cartoons.

But like Luke Cage's "Sweet Christmas" it had fallen out of use, or used in a retro or self-mocking fashion, such as in Metal #1.
