ANNOTATIONS

Page 1, panel 1
The Justice Leaguers inside the Overmaster's ship atop Mount Everest react to the death of Ice. Leaguers pictured are Amazing Man II, Blue Beetle II, Booster Gold, Captain Atom, Fire, Flash III, Martian Manhunter, and Wonder Woman.

Page 6, panel 3
POWER UP: Despite having recently been declared dead, Booster joins the assault against the Overmaster. Booster simultaneously demonstrates dual ray attacks and flight, indicating that his current Mark IV armor is every bit as battle capable as previous exoskeletons.

Page 10, panel 3
Talk about biting the hand that feeds you: Booster Gold is currently living an unnatural life-after-clinical-death due only to the power of the Overmaster. Assuming that there is nothing that the Overmaster can do to him physically short of total immolation, Booster tenaciously hangs onto the Overmaster's head, saving Blue Beetle's life.

Page 16, panel 1
Captain Atom, Booster Gold, and Flash II watch as Amazing Man absorbs the Overmaster's power and uses it to destroy the Overmaster himself.

Page 17, panel 5
Booster orders Beetle to destroy the Overmaster's machines, even at the expense of his own life. Wonder Woman seems concerned about this decision.

Page 19, panel 1
The Justice League jettisons the Overmaster's escape pod moments before his Star Citadel atop Mount Everest self destructs. This escape pod, often referred to as "the Refuge," will be placed into orbit around Earth and will become the headquarters of Wonder Woman's Justice League.

Page 20, panel 1
When the destruction of the Overmaster's Star Citadel renders all of his plans and machines inert, Booster Gold succumbs to the natural order and dies...

Page 20, panel 6
POWER UP: ...only to be saved by a life-support system that Blue Beetle installed in his latest Mark IV armor. The life-support system, signaling its activation by illuminating an emergency light beacon embedded in the iconic star on Booster's chest, will keep Booster's heart and lungs operating in the wake of wounds suffered at the hands of Devastator's axe in Justice League America #89. It is unclear what causes the life-support system to activate when it does, as Booster had no medically observable vital signs even when the Overmaster was preventing his death.

Page 21, panel 1
Though Booster's survival is indubitably a cause for celebration, the death of Ice gives the Justice League pause for thought. Mourners over Ice's body are shown to include Amazing Man II, Blue Beetle II, Booster Gold, Captain Atom, Crimson Fox, Dr. Light IV, Elongated Man, Fire, Flash III, Lionheart, L-Ron/Despero, Martian Manhunter, Maxima, Metamorpho, Osiris I, Power Girl, Ray II, Seneca, Tasmanian Devil, and Wonder Woman.

Note: In the next issue of this series, Justice League International, Volume 2, #67, Blue Beetle will sell details of Ice's death to a television news tabloid. In return for his tell-all, Beetle is paid $50,000, which he uses to pay for Booster's medical bills, "at least long enough to keep him alive."

REVIEWS

Boosterrific Review: The final chapter in the "Judgment Day" storyline is by far the best. Fast-paced, beautifully drawn, and even appropriately poignant and sensitive given the circumstances, this book is surprisingly well crafted and remarkably entertaining.
