ANNOTATIONS

Page 5, panel 2
EXTRA, EXTRA: "Week 10, Day 2." Supernova appears on the covers of both the Daily Star and the Daily Herald, competitors of the Daily Planet newspaper. Superman of Earth-Two (deceased since Infinite Crisis #7) worked not at the Daily Planet as his Earth-1 counterpart does, but for the Daily Star newspaper. It will later be revealed that the Daily Star takes credit for giving Supernova his codename, insinuating that the hero gave himself no moniker prior to meeting with Daily Star reporters.

Page 7, panel 5
POWER UP: Supernova demonstrates the power of flight over the streets of Metropolis as Clark Kent looks on. In addition to flying, Supernova is glowing brightly, living up to his name rather literally.

Page 10, panel 1
As Clark Kent expects, when he throws himself from a window of the Daily Planet Building, Supernova swiftly flies in and catches him, saving Kent from death by defenestration (passing through a window). Kent has employed this tactic to gain an interview with Supernova, an act that is exactly like something that Lois Lane may have tried to get Superman's attention.

Page 17, panel 3
POWER UP: Supernova displays the ability to teleport himself from location to location nearly instantaneously. This teleportation is accompanied by a brilliant flash of light.

REVIEWS

Boosterrific Review: The star of this issue is the newcomer Supernova, who manages to earn the approval of no less an authority on righteous heroism than Superman (during a brief adventure that is superficially similar to Booster Gold's first appearance). Booster Gold is of course livid about Supernova's popularity and sets out to ruin Supernova. Every issue Booster seems less and less rational. While this course of events can't end well for our hero, we're sure looking forward to the resolution to be sure.
