Page 5, panel 1
ALTERNATE REALITY: Booster Gold flies into action alongside all of the other members of the Justice Arcana. While this Booster and his powers appear superficially similar to the Booster Gold whose adventures are chronicled on this site, these events take place in an alternate reality where Booster's history has been significantly altered. In addition to the obvious costume modification (conspicuously not a lot of gold on this costume) since his last appearance in Trinity #32, note that Booster's right hand is clearly shown in this panel without a Legion Flight Ring. The familiar Booster Gold has worn his Flight Ring on the middle finger of his right hand for the majority of his career as a super hero.
