Booster Gold is on hand for a confrontation between Superman and Guy Gardner in the New York Justice League Headquarters. Others present include Blue Beetle II, Fire (in the costume that she adopted in Justice League America #67), and Ice. This is Booster's only appearance in this story.
Boosterrific Review: Gerard Jones' first issue of Guy Gardner's series wants to be a comedy but fails to deliver the necessary punchlines. This is probably due to the established characterization of the main character. Reactionary Guy Gardner was the butt of much humor in Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis' Justice League. Now as the star of his own title, Gardner must carry the humor instead of being the target of it, a role-reversal that Jones is not quite successful in pulling off in this debut issue. Joe Stanton's art, consistent if overly stylish and cartoony, is also perhaps not quite the right fit for this new series starring a character known as widely for his brash arrogance and his raw power as his gritty, politically incorrect point-of-view. This issue is okay, but is not nearly as enjoyable as this fan-favorite character deserves.
Boosterrific Rating: Tarnished.
