HIS STORY: While on monitor duty at the Justice League Headquarters, Booster Gold has a flashback to his arrest on gambling charges in the year 2462. Visible are his mother and twin sister, Michelle. While this instance is clearly a nightmarish memory for Booster Gold, it does add to his origin story if only to illustrate that the arresting officers did indeed inform him of his rights. (Some things won't change in the next 500 years.)

Boosterrific Review: For the second consecutive issue in this series, Booster Gold appears in half of the stories in this anthology issue. Booster is the motivator in "Time and Chance," the issue's lead story. While Mark Waid's script is primarily concerned with building on the gambling angle of Booster's back-story, it is clumsy in execution with particularly weak characterization and art. If "Time and Chance" is an ungainly disappointment, "When Titans Date" is a sublime character piece played for humor. Booster and friends spy on the love life of teammate Blue Beetle, and knee-slapping hilarity ensues. This issue is definitely a mixed bag.
