Booster Gold appears alongside Blue Beetle and Guy Gardner as they confront Josiah Power (off panel) for the first time. Also present off panel are Captain Atom, Martian Manhunter, and Superman. This is Booster's only appearance in this issue.
Boosterrific Review: I begin to doubt that it is possible for Kurt Busiek to tell a bad story. There is little in this issue that is innovative, but the history of an unknown player in a forgotten corner of the DC Universe is interesting enough when spun by a student of DC history like Busiek.
Boosterrific Rating: Worth Its Weight In Gold.
