Featured (Booster Gold plays a prominent role)
Costume Worn: MARK I.v2 power-suit
Story Notes: The "present day" events of this issue take place immediately before the second issue of the 2021 Human Target mini-series, but all three stories told are set in an even earlier era, possibly before any of the three heroes were members of the Justice League International.

FASHION ALERT: In this establishing panel, artist Greg Smallwood depicts Booster Gold in the present wearing his modern powersuit but shows Skeets as it first looked in its first appearance in Booster Gold Volume 1 #1...

Boosterrific Review: As if Tom King's interpretation of Booster Gold as the dumbest hero in the DCU didn't rankle me enough, I have other problems with all three stories in this anthology issue. In hindsight, it was a mistake to move the focus away from Christopher Chance's point of view because it only reveals how poorly reasoned most of his behaviors are. The art is great, though.
Boosterrific Rating: Gold Standard.
