ANNOTATIONS

Page 6, panel 5
ALTERNATE REALITY: In a possible future 35 years from now, Booster Gold is one of the super-powered heroes and villains whose powers and corporeal bodies have been corrupted by Brother Eye's nanites. Booster is wearing a variant of his New 52 costume with solid blue pants. Although he still has most of his face and his hair, it is unclear how much of the human remains of Michael Jon Carter exist under the costume. Once Brother Eye claims a victim, that person clearly becomes more machine than man. Although this is the same subplot as seen in Infinite Crisis (which did not happen in post-Flashpoint DCnU chronology), Brother Eye's mind-controlled drones are never called OMACs.

POWER UP: Brother Eye-as-Booster disables Blue Beetle with a Booster Shot. This is Booster's last appearance in this issue.

Seriously? Two-thirds of a page devoted to advertising, and not a single product endorsement by Booster Gold? And people wonder why I still hate the post-Flashpoint DC Universe.
