Page 10, panel 1
Booster Gold presents the award for "Most Outstanding Comeback" at the Zenith City Superhero Convention. Clearly present in the audience are Bulleteer and Big Thunder, both acting bodyguards for movie starlet and Atlantean Mariastella. This is a bit of a tongue-and-cheek nod to Booster's high prominence in the events leading up to Infinite Crisis in 2005/2006 following several years of semi-retirement. Disappointingly, the award went not to Booster but to Aquaman, who had recently returned to his classic uniform. This is Booster Gold's only appearance in this issue.
Boosterrific Review: This is just one chapter in Grant Morrison's much larger Seven Soldiers storyline. Though the "big picture" may be entirely unclear from reading this issue alone, the issue itself is a pretty amusing bit of meta-fiction: the DC Universe as viewed through a very cynical lens.
Boosterrific Rating: Worth Its Weight In Gold.
