Page 21, panel 4
Green Lantern, Superman, Rip Hunter, Booster Gold, and Skeets arrive at the Washington, D.C. headquarters of the Justice League in the present day just in time to join the fight against the hyper-fauna that has possessed Bruce Wayne. The Time Masters have arrived in a special Time Sphere constructed at the end of time. Though they left Vanishing Point in this vehicle, they had to travel back through the beginning of time, moving forward in time to reach this point.

Page 31, panel 3
Booster Gold is little more than a bystander as Superman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, and Batman fight the hyper-fauna. Also on the scene but out of action is Red Robin, Batman's former partner (and adopted son). This is Booster Gold's last appearance in this issue.

Boosterrific Review: If there's anything to be certain about a Grant Morrison-written series, it is that the story won't make much sense when it's all over. This issue (and in fact this series) wants to be a bigger event than it is. The inevitability of Bruce Wayne's return steals any emotional impact. Batman, a rational detective who focuses on small-time crime, is a poor fit for all of the ridiculous god/time/fifth-world mumbo-jumbo that provides the thin veneer for a typically Morrison bit of meta-fiction (DC Heroes as modern gods/ideas) that suffers from taking itself far too seriously. It's not a terrible book: it's just not everything that it wants to be.
