Page 2, panel 1
As Mister Miracle and Oberon wander towards the teleporters in the New York Embassy of the Justice League, Booster Gold is busy dodging a small remote controlled jet powered by Blue Beetle. It is not explained what Booster is doing in the Justice League headquarters in costume, as he quit the team several months ago. Booster and Beetle were last seen at Mister Miracle's funeral (as seen in both Justice League America #40 and Mister Miracle, Vol. 2, #17), and Beetle punched Booster in a fit of anger. The fact that Booster is running from Beetle's jet may be more than simple hijinks. Neither Booster nor Beetle act surprised to see Mister Miracle, so they must have been informed of Mister Miracle's escape from death sometime between issues. This is Booster's only appearance in this issue.
Boosterrific Review: The best thing about this issue is the cover by Adam Hughes. This is not to say that it is a bad comic book, simply that you can see all of the issue's highlights by simply looking at the cover.
Boosterrific Rating: Gold Standard.

This is an odd issue to rank. It certainly closes up one part of the "Mr. Miracle" series while paving the way for another. The main problem with the series remains simple. The comedic adventures of Scott Free and Big Barda trying to live a normal suburan life in Bailey, NH proved neither comedic nor that griping of adventures. Even worse, the series got bogged down with Scott's neighbors and a bunch of goofy kids. And while there are a lot of theories about Kirby and the Fourth World, I don't think comedic was one of them.
