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.
