While Blue Beetle and Booster discuss the potential fallout over the Club JLI fiasco, Booster speculates that an angry Maxwell Lord will "put a bullet through my head." Beetle's response? "Oh, come on, Booster - Max'd never do that." How wrong you are, Beetle.

Lord's punishment for Beetle and Booster is to force them to become the maid service for the New York JLI Embassy. This humiliating punishment will not sit well with Booster as it draws out into the future.
Boosterrific Review: A string of incredible comic books remains unbroken with this taut nautical drama that manages a rare appearance by former Justice League leader Aquaman. Truly a joy to read.
