Page 13, panel 1
Booster is determined to get his friend Blue Beetle back into the swing of costumed crime fighting following his coma. (With friends like these, who needs enemies?)

Page 13, panel 5
POWER DOWN: The force field in Booster's new armor is deactivated after stopping just one hit. This is a far cry from the invulnerable force field that Booster is accustomed to.

Page 21, panel 2
Beetle attempts to repair Booster's armor during a break in the battle. Beetle suggests that the new armor, little more than a prototype, will not hold up much longer under the stress of combat.
