Page 11, panel 1
Booster Gold speaks to Rip Hunter via telephone in order to tell Rip that he has arranged a meeting between Rip and Superman. This arrangement was probably distasteful for Booster to make, as Superman and Booster have never been on good terms. Booster makes Rip promise not to ask him for any more favors. (In hindsight, this is somewhat humorous given the intertwined future of these two characters.)
Boosterrific Review: Rip Hunter establishes the modern Time Masters, a team suffering from so much internal angst and melodrama that they would be more a home on a daytime soap opera than in a super hero comic book. In fact, the events of this issue are more confusing than seems necessary, as though writers Bob Wayne and Lewis Shiner are trying to intentionally obfuscate the direction that they are planning for the story. Maybe all of these characters and twists are necessary (especially considering the new restrictions on time travel in the post-Crisis on Infinite Earths DC Monoverse), but they are obstacles that the reader must overcome to enjoy the story.
Boosterrific Rating: Gold Standard.
