Booster Gold is among the many heroes of the DC and Hanna Barbera universes assembled to witness the race between Flash and Speed Buggy. (Proceeds will go to benefit charity!) Heroes in attendance include the Flash family (Barry Allen, Bar Torr, Jay Garrick, Linda Park, Wally West, and Wally West II), the Titans (Aqualad, Bumblebee, Donna Troy, Nightwing, and Omen), the Superman family (Krypto, Supergirl, Superman), Captain Atom, Firestorm, Hawkman, and Plastic Man. Most notable to Booster Gold fans is who Booster is paling around with: none other than Ted Kord! This is the first on-panel meeting between Booster Gold and the New 52 Ted Kord.
