Page 16, panel 1
Booster Gold is being chased through downtown Moscow by two members of the Rocket Red Brigade. The armor worn by the Rocket Reds appears to be based on the armor of former Rocket Red Captain Gavril Ivanovich instead of the armor worn by the Rocket Red brigade as seen in Justice League: Generation Lost #4. The two signs written in the Cyrillic alphabet on the street behind Booster translate to "stop, danger for life" and "happy holidays." Note that the reflection to the right of Booster shows a missile that doesn't exist between Booster and the window.

SPOILER WARNING!: Reveal
Boosterrific Review: A satisfying resolution to this cliched superhero-fakes-her-death-to-be-a-better-superhero story is marred considerably by very sub-par art. It is hard to take these characters seriously when it looks like they were drawn by children.
Boosterrific Rating: Gold Standard.
