Page 8, panel 3
Booster Gold stands alongside Amazing Man II, Batman I, Captain Atom, Impulse, Metron, Nightwing, and Robin III as the heroes plan what to do about the increasing number of disappearing cities.

Page 9, panel 2
As time is erased from the end of time backwards, heroes from the future are disappearing as though they never existed. Shortly after the disappearance of Impulse, whose origins are in the 30th century, Booster disappears from the DC universe. Booster was raised in the 25th century. In a matter of seconds, 500 years of history have been erased.

ISSUE REVIEW

Boosterrific Review: One at a time, the heroes of the DC Universe are destroyed by events set in motion by this series' surprise villain, proving that all that came before was entirely pointless. Despite a lingering feeling of disgust at what finally appears as a mini-series comprised primarily of confusing warm-up acts delaying the scheduled main event, some good will towards Dan Jurgens' story is restored by the climatic confrontation at the end of the issue.

Boosterrific Rating:

Gold Standard.
