Page 7, panel 4
Black Canary II, Black Lightning, Booster Gold, Green Arrow, John Stewart (as a Green Lantern), Metamorpho, Mr. Terrific II, and Sasha Bordeaux (not pictured) arrive in a park in a metropolitan area following the destruction of the Brother Eye satellite as shown in Infinite Crisis #6. The heroes arrive via John Stewart's power ring despite the fact that they were last seen fleeing aboard the second Blue Beetle's Bug airship. The fate of that Bug is unknown, though it is presumed destroyed.
Page 8, panel 3
Booster excuses himself from the group, explaining that he has to search out Blue Beetle III. Beetle was last seen teleporting out of the Bug to inexplicably avoid the Green Lanterns.

FASHION ALERT: As he flies away from Sasha Bordeaux, Booster is clearly wearing the wrong version of his costume. Rather than the Mark I.v2 costume shown in his last appearance in Infinite Crisis #6, Booster appears to be wearing his Mark XII costume last seen in The OMAC Project miniseries, also drawn by Jesus Saiz. Because it is highly unlikely that Booster would have changed costumes since his last appearance, this costume change is likely an artist's error and an editorial oversight.
Boosterrific Review: A delightful coda to the story of the Omac project Brother I, providing the conclusion that The Omac Project mini-series deserved.
Boosterrific Rating: Worth Its Weight In Gold.
