POWER DOWN: Beetle and Booster flee from a giant wielding an enormous flail. Booster finally confirms that his armored suit is capable of independent flight without his Legion Flight Ring. Unfortunately, his suit is malfunctioning and he is not wearing his ring.

As Booster tries to reinforce Beetle's collapsed self-esteem by telling him that he "could be another Batman," the pair is surrounded by angry minions of Eward. Traditionally, Beetle is portrayed more like Marvel Comics flagship character Spider-Man rather than DC's Dark Knight Detective.

HIS STORY: Booster tells Beetle that they will not die in this confrontation. When Beetle presses for more information, Booster dodges the question. Could it be that Booster knows more about "current" events than he lets on?

Boosterrific Review: The long simmering storyline of Ice's dysfunctional family life is brought to a conclusion in this issue, which is little more than an issue long domestic dispute flavored with the subtle tease of a mass conspiracy.
Boosterrific Rating: Gold Standard.
