ANNOTATIONS

Page 4, panel 5
Booster Gold stands among Superman's remaining forces while Maxima pledges to assist in the destruction of Warworld. The heroes are Agent Liberty, Big Barda, Captain Marvel, Deathstroke, Dr. Fate II, Elongated Man, Fire, Flash III, Guardian, Guy Gardner, Ice, Infinity Man, Lightray, The Metal Men (Gold, Lead, Iron, Mercury, Platinum, Tin), Metamorpho, Mister Miracle, Orion, Rocket Red #4, Starman V, Supergirl II, Superman, Valor, and Wonder Woman. This is Booster's first meeting with the shape-changing Supergirl II, who has adopted the form of the fallen Draaga (who Booster never met). Although Booster must have witnessed Maxima's battle prowess in The Adventures of Superman #488, this is his first on-panel meeting with the future Justice Leaguer.

Page 7, panel 1
Dividing into three teams to finish off Warworld, Booster is teamed with Dr. Fate II, Elongated Man, Fire, Infinity Man, Supergirl II, and Superman.

Page 10, panel 1
POWER UP: When Brainiac bombards the heroes with his amplified psychic assault, Booster Gold's force field appears to provide him with some unexpected and unexplained limited defense. In other psychic assaults, Booster's force field will not be as effective.

Page 20, panel 3
Traveling via Boom Tube, Booster joins Captain Marvel, Infinity Man, Kilowog, Mister Miracle, and Valor, in an attempt to destroy the energy generating disks threatening Metropolis. Because Booster leaves Warworld before Brainac is subdued, he never actually comes face-to-face with Brainiac.

REVIEWS

Boosterrific Review: A fitting conclusion to a storyline which had begun to wear out its welcome, as unexpected allies end up turning the tide of battle. Readers who have pushed their way through earlier chapters in the story will not be disappointed.
