In another previously unrevealed flashback, Booster Gold is being interviewed about his past by Maxwell Lord in Lord's Washington, D.C. Innovative Concepts office. No specific date is given, but this scene clearly takes place in Booster's first official meeting with Lord as seen in Justice League #2.

Boosterrific Review: I must offer full credit to the entire team producing this series: great work. I had my doubts, but you have all proven them unfounded as you continue to produce a highly enjoyable comic book. This issue is slower paced and largely character driven than some previous issues, two elements difficult to achieve successfully in an action-oriented series. My only complaints remain an uneven artistic rendering between issues, an understandable but disappointing situation no doubt arising from such a fast-paced publishing schedule.

Lord's dialogue in this issue is a good testament to how bizarre and twisted his logic and ideas are. Another good issue; I've been very pleased with this series thus far.

I loved this one, if only for Rocket Red's "hypocrite on Justice League, High Five!" line. it was my pick of the week when it came out.

Very good issue. I am very interested in what Max Lord is doing here. The team is bonding together very nicely--though I am surprised by the lack of Fire and Ice bonding going on.

While not the most action packed issue this stands as an example of how a comic should be done. Great art, excellent character voices and development (something that explains Ices' seemingly out of character voice.) It's well crafted and has every member of this team bonding in some fashion, something that seems to be a rare thing these days. Max has become a truly compelling villain of the piece. Captain Atom gets the most touching scene and the team starts to become a slightly tighter unit.

Max's revelation totally threw me when I first read this, but it made sense an hour after I put it down. And I totally understand Ice. It's a testament to Judd Winick and Keith Giffen's writing that the protagonists' emotions are so real and vivid readers can easily slip into Booster's and Ice's shoes. The team is getting very good at making this. Cheers to them.
