ALTERNATE REALITY: Twenty two days after Christopher Chance drank poison intended for Lex Luthor, Booster Gold and Ice are relaxing after some kind of battle.

When Martian Manhunter comes looking for Ice, Booster splits. This is Booster's last appearance in this story.
Boosterrific Review: So far as concluding chapters go... this is not great. Even the art looks rushed. Blech. Actually, the more that I think about it, the less I like it. As is usual for a Tom King story, the pieces never quite come together. Maybe 2 stars is too generous. I'm going to go have a drink and try to pretend this didn't happen.
Boosterrific Rating: Tarnished.
