Page 5, panel 1
Booster Gold appears at a conference between the multiple branches of the Justice League International. Though Booster is still the leader of the Conglomerate, he is also a reserve member of the Justice League. Other people in attendance include Batman, Blue Beetle II, Bluejay, Captain Atom, Catherine Colbert, Crimson Fox, Elongated Man, Fire, Flash III, General Glory, Guy Gardner, Ice, Kilowog, L-Ron, Martian Manhunter, Maxwell Lord, Metamorpho, Mister Miracle, Mitch Wacky, Oberon, Power Girl, Rocket Red #4, Silver Sorceress, and Sue Dibny. This is Booster's first on-panel appearance with Justice League Europe members Bluejay, Crimson Fox, and the Silver Sorceress. It is also Booster's first encounter with new Justice League America member General Glory and inventor Mitch Wacky. (Despite both being in attendance at this meeting, General Glory will introduce himself to Booster in Justice League America Annual #5 published six months later.)

Boosterrific Review: The Justice League tries to change the history of a "Marvel"-ous alternate universe in this 80-page giant crossover between the Justice Leagues America and Europe. The story would be right at home in regular issues of Justice League Europe, but benefits from the larger format as it allows for some intricate storytelling that would get lost in the months-long gaps between regular issues in a series. The story also benefits from some clever peeks to Justice League history that are bound to please long-time readers while still maintaining the tongue-in-cheek humor of the International era. All in all, this is a surprisingly enjoyable adventure despite the weighty specter of nuclear Armageddon that provides the central conflict for the issue.
