Page 16, panel 1
In response to the Secret Society of Super Villains' attack on the Hall of Justice, Booster Gold (and Skeets!) joins Nightwing's Titans to confront the threat. Fighting alongside Booster (and Skeets!) are Aqualad, Black Ice, Blue Beetle (Ted Kord), Captain Atom, Changeling, Chupacabra, Crush, Cyborg, Donna Troy, Firestorm, Flash (Wally West), Frankenstein, Jessie Quick, Kid Flash (Wallace West), Megabat, Raven, Red Arrow, Roundhouse, Starfire, Stitch, Supergirl, Superman (Jon Kent), Vixen, and Wonder Girl (Yara Flor). The mural behind them first appeared in Dark Crisis #0.

Page 23, panel 2
While Booster is trading punches with Silver Banshee, other villains pictured on the front steps of the Hall of Justice in this panel are Cheetah, Doctor Phosphorous, Gentleman Ghost, Multiplex, Prometheus, Skorpio, and Weather Wizard. Believe it or not, this is the first time Booster has been on panel with any of them except Weather Wizard, who Booster first crossed paths with in 2006's JLA: Incarnations #6.

Silver Banshee will be seen again in later panels, but this is the last appearance of Booster Gold in this issue. Did he *gasp* lose the fight?

Boosterrific Review: The villains continue to be extra evil, the heroes continue to inspire, and Daniel Sampere's art continues to be top notch. The plot of this event, however, feels like it's stuck in neutral.
