Page 6, panel 2
Booster Gold is among the heroes unceremoniously thrown out of the meeting room of the JLA North America Embassy by Batman. Again Booster is depicted in the wrong costume, as he is clearly wearing his long-destroyed Mark I costume with no collar. (Is the coming of Mageddon powerful enough to disrupt time?) Also present are Argent, Blue Beetle, Gypsy, Martian Manhunger, and Nightwing.
Boosterrific Review: Just when it felt like everything was beginning to make sense, the story abruptly ends, leaving at least as many questions as it answered. This is disappointing, but not entirely unsatisfying.
Boosterrific Rating: Worth Its Weight In Gold.
