ANNOTATIONS

Page 6, panel 1
Booster Gold, still under the control of the evil Batman Who Laughs, attacks Black Manta's Mecha Manta in front of the Hall of Justice. They are surrounded by other heroes and villains who are also fighting one another under under the influence of The Batman Who Laughs and Lex Luthor. (Who are the good guys here? Who cares. Superheroes and supervillains will use any excuse to punch one another. It's what they do.)

Page 13, panel 5
Everyone stops fighting once Luthor blocks the broadcast of Batman's dark-dimensional poison infection "energy." So I guess the good guys won. Whichever set they were.

Page 14, panel 3
Mercy, Lex Luthor's assistant, chastises the heroes for not appreciating that Lex Luthor saved them. Of course, this is the same Lex Luthor who has accepted power form an alien queen in order to subjugate humanity to her wishes. So you have to do evil to do good, Mercy? Let's just say it's a mixed message.

Page 14, panel 4
Booster Gold says nothing as Lex Luthor, Mercy, and Batman escape. That's not unusual for this mini-series. He has remained complete mute for three straight issues.

REVIEWS

Boosterrific Review: This story ends, insofar as Lex Luthor completes his quest to capture the Batman Who Laughs. But the end of this story is only the start of another in this seemingly never-ending "Year of the Villain" event. Unsatisfying.
