Issue Notes: Booster Gold does not appear anywhere within this issue. His image appears on the cover as a promotional ploy, which is especially odd as he has not been in the active roster of the Justice League for several issues, since quitting the team in Justice League America #37. This is the second time that Booster has appeared on the cover of a book without being involved in the story within.
