Shortly after the disappearance of Impulse, whose origins are in the 30th century, Booster disappears from the DC universe. Booster was raised in the 25th century. In a matter of seconds, 500 years of history have been erased.

REVIEWS

Boosterrific Review: One at a time, the heroes of the DC Universe are destroyed by events set in motion by this series' surprise villain, proving that all that came before was entirely pointless. Despite a lingering feeling of disgust at what finally appears as a mini-series comprised primarily of confusing warm-up acts delaying the scheduled main event, some good will towards Dan Jurgens' story is restored by the climatic confrontation at the end of the issue.
