SPOILER WARNING!: Reveal

Page 21, panel 6
After the Reyes' home is repaired, Booster rejoins his comrades Fire, Ice, and Guy Gardner, out of costume for a cookout. Other attendees of the cookout include Jaime's family, his friends and schoolmates Brenda and Paco, the original Peacemaker, Jaime's girlfriend Traci Thirteen, and members of the local super-gang, the Posse (Bonita and baby Alina, Damper, Probe, Scour, and Thump). Like his fellow former Leaguers, Booster explains that his motivations for his unexpected but timely arrival was "total spur of the moment" and that the fact that he is joined by three other surviving (and resurrected) teammates of former Blue Beetle Ted Kord is a mere coincidence. Reyes remains unconvinced, suggesting that somehow the Blue Beetle's scarab, named Khaji Da, was responsible.

REVIEWS

Boosterrific Review: As wonderful as it is to see members of the old Justice League International back in action again (especially as expressively drawn Rafael Albuquerque), the scenario just seems a little contrived, especially taking into account the fact that they are the only heroes who arrive to aid Blue Beetle in preventing an alien invasion of Earth and a very timely deus ex machina intervention by Booster Gold.
