This story has been reprinted in:
Injustice 2 Volume 1 (2017)
Page 3, panel 1
ALTERNATE REALITY: Skeets is seen accompanying former Blue Beetle Ted Kord and current Blue Beetle Jaime Reyes. These events of this issue take place after the conclusion of the Injustice video game but prior to the events of its sequel, Injustice 2.
Page 5, panel 4

...a lighter, more humorous time for everyone but Batman. (He didn't smile then, either.)
Page 7, panel 1
Booster Gold arrives from the future (by way of his own portrait) to say good-bye to his old friend. This is the first appearance of Booster in the Injustice Universe.
Page 8, panel 3
SOLIDIFIED TIME: Booster indicates that he "can't change the past," though he tried anyway. That's friendship.
Page 8, panel 4
Booster also says he "got put away" for trying to change history. This implies that the Injustice Universe has time police similar to those seen in Booster Gold volume 2, #41.
