Booster Gold's role in this story:
Supporting (Booster Gold plays a lesser role)

Story Notes: This story does not make it clear when or where the events herein are supposed to take place. Although the text indicates the setting as the contemporary "Justice League Watchtower, Earth Orbit," the art depicts the JLA Watchtower on the Moon, destroyed in 2005's JLA #119. Also, although the story concerns Red Tornado's estrangement from his former love interest, Kathy Sutton, he was seen married to her and living with her and her daughter at least as recently as 2022's One-Star Squadron #6.

Boosterrific Review: Although I have my concerns about some characterizations that don't match what I would expect in usual continuity -- including Booster Gold seeming to forget the rules of time travel in the DC Universe -- this is an enjoyable anthology overall.
