Booster Gold is shown in flashback rescuing a woman as Maxi-Man ineffectively looks on. Flashback are only included in the Boosterrific Chronology if they add to the story of Booster Gold's adventures. In this case, the scene has not been previously shown, and it illustrates the first meeting between Booster and Maxi-Man even though Booster was unaware of it at the time. Its exact place in Booster's chronology is impossible to pinpoint, so it is included here as the primary events of the issue precede Mister Miracle, Vol. 2, #10. This is Booster Gold's only appearance in this book.
Boosterrific Review: This book pokes fun at the concept of the super hero and his traditionally melodramatic origin. Good-natures and earnest in its approach, the book manages not to ridicule its subject. This shouldn't be too surprising to those familiar with the comedy of errors usually found in the monthly pages of Mister Miracle, but it does lack for teeth: there's really very little to get excited about.
Boosterrific Rating: Gold Standard.
Average Fan Rating: (1 vote)
As often seemed to be the case, "Mr. Miracle" tried too hard in its run in the late 80s to be funny.
