Issue Notes: This is the first follow-up issue to DC's Who's Who: The Definitive Directory of the DC Universe limited series. The series was designed as a biographical compendium to alert readers to the status of characters after the merging of the previously existing DC Multiverse at the conclusion to the landmark Crisis on Infinite Earths mini-series. Since Booster Gold did not exist at the time of the first series, his first biographical entry is in this Update '87. This series was promoted via house ads that include Booster Gold.

This story has been reprinted in:
Who's Who Omnibus (2021)

The Who's Who entry for Booster Gold was written before the events of Booster Gold, Vol. 1, #22. It confirms Booster's height at a lofty 6'5" and weight as 215lbs. Amusingly, the entry for Booster Gold appears on the page following the entry for Blue Beetle months before the two developed their reputation as partners in comedy in the pages of Justice League International.
