Story Notes: The "present day" events of this issue take place immediately before the second issue of the 2021 Human Target mini-series, but all three stories told are set in an even earlier era, possibly before any of the three heroes were members of the Justice League International.

Boosterrific Review: As if Tom King's interpretation of Booster Gold as the dumbest hero in the DCU didn't rankle me enough, I have other problems with all three stories in this anthology issue. In hindsight, it was a mistake to move the focus away from Christopher Chance's point of view because it only reveals how poorly reasoned most of his behaviors are. The art is great, though.
