Page 10, panel 4
The Atomic Knight (Gardner Grayle) tells Booster that he has "seen the future. You're not in it." In the mainstream DCU, Grayle is precognitive, and his visions have traditionally been tied to the events leading to and immediately following World War III. Since Booster comes from a future far beyond World War III and adventures in an era prior to Grayle's visions, there's no reason Booster would appear in Grayle's visions, even if they were in the same timeline.

Boosterrific Review: Bad writing, bad art; I honestly don't know what's supposed to be happening in this story. If anyone ever asks you to suggest a comic book that would inspire a non-comic reader to never read another comic book, this is the one.
Boosterrific Rating: Fool's Gold.
