ISSUE ANNOTATIONS

Page 3, panel 4
FASHION ALERT: Booster Gold watches as Blue Beetle II inserts a signal device behind the star on the chest of his costume. Booster continues to let his hair grow, and it now falls below his shoulders.

Page 9, panel 1
In a bit of inspired mischief, Booster and Beetle teleport to the London Headquarters of the Justice League Europe with their costumes switched in order to fool Flash III and Power Girl into thinking that they have been reassembled incorrectly in a teleporter malfunction.

Page 10, panel 6
Flash and Power Girl respond to Beetle and Booster's joke by stripping them to their underwear and teleporting them back to New York, to the amusement of, left to right, Ice, Maxima, Fire, Maxwell Lord, Bloodwynd, and Guy Gardner. Fire wears another new costume that reveals an almost indecent amount of skin.

Page 11, panel 1
Answering the question made famous in the 1994 Presidential election: Booster Gold is revealed to wear white briefs. Blue Beetle is shown wearing boxers with little hearts on them.

Page 11, panel 2
Beetle's comment about Fire's new costume irritates Fire...

Page 11, panel 3
...so she proceeds to call him "spider-bug-man" and burn his chest. This in-joke refers to recent issues of Justice League in which Blue Beetle has been drawn more frequently in poses reminiscent of a certain "spider-bug-man" published by Marvel Comics.

Page 11, panel 4
Blue Beetle's chest hair is saved from Fire's fury by the timely arrival of Oberon, who sends the team to Edwards Air Force Base in California. Edwards AFB is generally considered the secondary landing site of the Space Shuttle, which the United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) prefers to land at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida for economic reasons.

Page 13, panel 1
PRODUCT PLACEMENT: Aboard the Bug for the flight to California, Booster reveals that he owns the Tomorrow Corporation that hired Fire, a part-time model from Brazil, for a lingerie calendar shoot. Clearly Booster is up to his old schemes of trying to capitalize on the name of the Justice League.

Page 15, panel 3
Bloodwynd, Blue Beetle, Booster Gold, and Fire are confronted with the task of saving a crashing Space Shuttle. Booster's concern about the ability of the four of them to save the shuttle is perhaps a reference to Superman's first post-Crisis on Infinite Earth public appearance in 1986's Man of Steel #1, in which Superman is shown to save an experimental shuttle single-handedly.

Page 18, panel 2
A tense few minutes and one saved shuttle later, Booster boasts about the Justice League being the "greatest super-team ever." Whether he means the Justice League in general or this incarnation of it in particular is up for debate.

Page 20, panel 1
When an unknown alien craft appears in the sky, the Justice League rushes to confront it.

Page 22, panel 1
FIRST APPEARANCE: First appearance of Chaq, an alien claiming to own Earth.

ISSUE REVIEW

Boosterrific Review: As in past issues, members of the Justice League remain self-absorbed in their individual problems. Unlike past issues, their personal issues seem to be stagnating and, worse, stealing the spotlight from the issue's limited action. Certainly this is not a bad comic book, but it does feel a little stale in comparison to recent issues of the series.

Boosterrific Rating:

Gold Standard.
