Page 12, panel 3

Page 12, panel 6
Batman's typically gruff attitude provokes Booster into a fight. Reluctantly, Gardner joins the fight, pitting Booster against the combined power of a Green Lantern and prowess of the Dark Knight. Booster reveals little emotion in the fight, so there is no evidence about how he feels fighting against Batman, one of his idols.

Boosterrific Review: Writer Steve Englehart's story, while flawed, was once relatively direct and comprehensible. But with this issue, the episodic vignettes are becoming less and less coherent, a detriment to a story that is already feeling long in the tooth. Fortunately, the issue is saved by a very enjoyable battle between Booster Gold vs Batman and Guy Gardner and the characterization of the increasingly frustrated Batman.

I don't hold the Millennium story in anything close to high regard but the fight between Booster vs Guy and Bats was a high point.
