Page 11, panel 5
Skeets and Oberon join Ronnie Raymond, half of Firestorm, at the site of the former United Nations' sanctioned Justice League America Headquarters in New York City. The headquarters was destroyed by the Overmaster's second Cadre in Justice League International, Vol. 2, #65. This is Skeets' first appearance since Justice League America #87, and the first ever appearance of Skeets without Booster Gold nearby.
Page 13, panel 1
As Blue Beetle II marvels at the abilities of the computers inside Mount Thunder, Booster Gold suggests that he search for his "old agent," who owes him "big money." Dirk Davis has not been seen since the events of Millennium, where he robbed Booster and his company, BGI, Inc., of all of its assets, estimated to be worth several billion dollars in 1987.

FIRST APPEARANCE: Booster Gold, Blue Beetle, and Captain Atom arrive in "the Neighborhood" to assist Amazing Man II and Maxima against Pulse Unit, Kill Unit, and Synapse, part of the defenses of Mount Thunder.
Boosterrific Review: Writer Dan Vado manages to squeeze some significant character development into this action-packed issue, but it will be hard to notice buried as it is in the disfiguring art of Marc Campos. This book would be vastly improved if Campos had taken some drawing courses in basic anatomy.
Boosterrific Rating: Tarnished.
