Steven Murphy of ScienceFiction.com has put together a likely list of suspects we might find revealed as prisoners of the mysterious Mr. Oz. (Mr. Oz has been making appearances in random DC Comics since Rebirth started. His real identity and motivations remain unknown, but he's obviously a huge fan of L. Frank Baum.)
Chief among Mr. Murphy's list of prisoners is someone who hasn't been seen in the DCnU in 418 days and counting:
Booster Gold is a favorite classic character typically paired with Blue Beetle Ted Kord. Rebirth is an event largely about bringing favorite classic characters back and while Ted has been reestablished, Booster has not. That can't be an oversight.
Sounds plausible to me. There has to be some reason DC is ignoring Booster Gold even as they continue to press forward with developing a movie for the character, right?

According to a recent National Geographic article by Ket Than, some scientists from Cornell University have calculated the end of time. According to the theory of eternal inflation -- which also postulates the existence of a multiverse -- time must have an absolute end.
If probabilities are to work in a multiverse, there must be actual cutoffs that bring various universes to their ends, study leader Bousso says. According to the formulas used to calculate cutoffs, a universe that is 13.7 billion years old will reach its cutoff in about 5 billion years, his team concludes.
So now we know when Vanishing Point is! But don't worry, Hypertime fans. It seems that the same theory reveals that even though time will end in 5 billion years, the multiverse will go on. Assuming, of course, that there isn't another Crisis on the way.
