Booster Gold's role in this story:
Featured (Booster Gold plays a prominent role)
Costume Worn: MARK XIII power-suit
This story has been reprinted in the following issue:
Justice League International Volume 1: The Signal Masters (2012)
Page 2, panel 1
Booster Gold is back in Peru with Batman. Their Justice League International teammates are spread throughout the globe confronting the many Signalmen.
Page 4, panel 1
Batman praises Booster's success at distracting the Signalman. Ever since Flashpoint, Batman has been very supportive. Did something change in his history to make him less dour?
Page 5, panel 3
FASHION ALERT: The trim on Booster Gold's cowl is colored blue, not gold. This mistake is repeated in every appearance of Booster Gold in this issue. Three months into DC's New 52 experiment, and the colorists and editors still don't seem to understand Jim Lee's new character models.
Page 8, panel 1
Andre Briggs tries but fails to reach Booster Gold via radio from Washington, D.C, yet Booster seems to be able to communicate with Batman just fine. Perhaps the Signalman is blocking Booster's communication with the rest of the world?
Page 15, panel 4
Booster joins Batman inside the Peruvian Signalman's underground headquarters. Apparently, the Signalman did not need much distracting.
Page 16, panel 4
Note that Batman's plan against the rock men is exactly the same as Booster's earlier plan against the Signalmen. At least Batman is really reassuring of Booster's role.
Page 18, panel 3
Despite Batman's encouragement, Booster is unable to prevent Batman from being overrun by the rock men.
Boosterrific Review: This issue is far too decompressed to be satisfying. Each hero gets about three pages of attention, and too much of that time is spent on repetitive situations allowing only minimal character development. Nothing significant is learned about the overall plot . (Signalmen are aliens? No one saw that coming in issue 1.) Only at issue 3, it seems awfully early in the life of this book to be treading water like this.
Boosterrific Rating: Tarnished.
