ANNOTATIONS

Page 10, panel 1
In the Hall of Justice, Booster Gold appears alongside other Justice Leaguers who welcome Superman. (Pictured are Aquaman, Atom, Blue Beetle, Cyborg, Dr. Fate, Firestorm, Flash, Green Arrow, Green Lanterns (Jessica Cruz, John Stewart, and Simon Baz), Harley Quinn, Hawkman, Jesse Quick, Martian Manhunter, Metamorpho, Miguel Montez, Mr. Terrific, Phantom Girl, Plastic Man, Robin, Shazam, Signal, Steel, Superman, Swamp Thing, Vixen, and Zatanna. Not pictured but presumably present based on the same scene shown in Superman #19 are Azrael, Black Canary, Man-Bat, Naomi, and the Wonder Twins (who are seen on the previous page).

Page 14, panel 2
SOLIDIFIED TIME: In a flashback taking place prior to the the previous page, Booster Gold climbs Huayna Picchu, the mountain overlooking the ruins of Machu Picchu in Peru, at 12:34 PM Metropolis time on "Miracle Monday," April 27, 2020 Metropolis is on the East Coast of the United States, which means it is in the Eastern Time Zone, as is Machu Picchu. Therefore no conversion is necessary between "Metropolis time" and local time. As for the date, although this issue does not specify the day of the year, a Daily Planet headline reading "Superman's Truth: Part Three" is dated Sunday, May 3, 2020 in Superman #20. Therefore, Booster's ascent likely occurs the Monday immediately preceding the newspaper's publication.

Page 14, panel 5
When he summits the mountain, he yells "Clark Kent," thrilled that he can finally admit that he has always known Superman's secret identity.
