Page 2, panel 1
Booster Gold is shown in a panel with Dr. Fate II and Starman V on the interior of Warworld. Other heroes appear in other areas of Warworld. Notably present is Metamorpho, who has not appeared in any of the previous "Panic in the Sky" story episodes.
Page 22, panel 1
Booster is revealed to be among the heroes who have fallen under Brainiac's control during the battles within Warworld. Booster wears one of Brainiac's thin, white mind-control devices on his head. Since Booster hasn't been seen since the second page, exactly how this has happened to him is unknown. Other heroes pictured in the panel in the thrall of Brainiac include Agent Liberty, Deathstroke, Elongated Man, Fire, Flash III, Guardian, Guy Gardner, Ice, Metamorpho, Rocket Red #4, and Valor.
Boosterrific Review: Earth's heroes defend themselves from an assault by Brainiac and Warworld. The enjoyment of this issue comes more from seeing such disparate DC heroes (and villains) together in action rather than its cliched story of an alien invasion.
Boosterrific Rating: Gold Standard.
