Matthew Ryder, Rip Hunter, and Liri Lee observe the Linear Man's struggle with Booster Gold and Superman from The Adventures of Superman #476 in a monitor at Vanishing Point. As it is the very nature of Vanishing Point that it exists outside of the time stream, it is impossible to say if they are watching events before, during, or after they happen in relation to the chronological adventures of Booster Gold. As the events of this story include the Linear Man chronologically prior to his assault on Booster Gold, this story has been cataloged prior to the aforementioned Adventures of Superman.
Boosterrific Review: The stories in this issue earn high marks for emulating the time and tone of their supposed occurrence, and will certainly be satisfying for fans of the DCU. Notable to the chronology of Booster Gold is the story of how Rip Hunter came to Vanishing Point to work with the Linear Men. This story, while not especially enlightening, is nonetheless entertaining.
Boosterrific Rating: Worth Its Weight In Gold.
