After vowing to get involved in the chaos last issue, a boastful Booster Gold arrives just in time to save Guy Gardner from Lobo. This is the second time that Booster has used his force field to break up a fight between these two hot-heads (previously in Justice League America #19). Unlike the last time, Lobo simply chooses to continue fighting, merely changing focus to Booster.

Realizing that events are out of control, Booster leaves the fight to get help.
Page 18, panel 3
Booster returns in the nick of time to save a second Justice Leaguer, this time Martian Manhunter from Despero. Joining Booster is Flash III and the assembled Conglomerate, Echo, Gypsy, Maxi-Man, Praxis, Reverb, and Vapor. Booster is the only member of the Conglomerate not wearing the official jacket. In fact, Booster hasn't been seen in the jacket since Justice League Quarterly #1.
Boosterrific Review: Bart Sears' illustration of an epic, multi-front battle between the Justice League International, Lobo, the Extremists, and Despero is a refreshingly fast-paced action bonanza. While this issue does not significantly advance the overall plot of the "Breakdowns" storyline in this issue, who cares?
