This story has been reprinted in the following issue:
Justice League: Generation Lost Volume 1 (2011)
Page 1, panel 3
This panel depicts Captain Atom in an outdoor space ship of alien origin instead of being underground in a capsule made of the Dilusteel taken from an alien craft as depicted in Captain Atom #1. Is this change significant? Probably not. I just thought I'd point it out for readers unfamiliar with the original DC origin of Captain Atom (as differentiated from the character's original Charlton Comics origin as an accident in space).
Page 3, panel 2
In the New York Embassy of the Justice League, Booster Gold, Blue Beetle, Captain Atom, Fire, Ice, and Skeets plan their next course of action. Present but not pictured is Rocket Red #07. Booster appears in only two panels in this issue, and this panel contains his only dialogue of the issue.
Boosterrific Review: Another very good issue. The series seems to have turned a corner: after establishing the series story, the writers are now pausing to introduce the characters. I have no problem with this, and I think it is a good idea to flesh out the stories of some characters and their motivations, especially for newer readers. Justice League International stories are two decades old after all.
Boosterrific Rating: Worth Its Weight In Gold.
