Booster Gold is seen only briefly during the fight on Mars against Doctor Manhattan.
Booster is just one of many heroes assembled for the fight. Though he has met and fought beside most of them before, this is his first meeting with Atomic Knight, Human Starfish (Robbie Reed), the Shazam Family, and the Question.
Boosterrific Review: Like the issues before it, this book has a tonal problem resulting from trying to shoehorn Watchmen sensibilities into the DC Universe. I compare that problem to feedback from a malfunctioning speaker that can turn the most beautiful music into fingernails on a chalkboard. The art is beautiful, but the story comes off as derivative at best, downright misguided at worst. It doesn't make me want to read more.
Boosterrific Rating: Tarnished.
