Booster Gold is seen in flashback as Nightwing describes the generational legacies of the heroes of the DC Universe. Though Booster Gold is not considered a legacy hero, much of his origin story was built on a foundation of Superman's Silver Age adventures.

Boosterrific Review: Maybe I've been reading comics too long, but I'm having a hard time being excited about yet *another* event story with explicit origins in the nearly 40-year-old Crisis on Infinite Earths (especially when history has taught me that DC is only going to roll back whatever status quo changes this event makes to whatever passes for continuity these days). That said, the characterization is good and the art is even better. So maybe this will grow on me. I certainly like Booster's role so far (even if he doesn't say a single word in this issue).
