But beyond that I am nervous and confused for what this means for Boosters' title. Because certain places are already suggesting a cancellation but why didn't they do so before Flashpoint if that's the case? The title is reaching #50, it shouldn't go back to #1 or end if they made the effort to have it be the sole title to tie in to an event. Jurgens had plans for #50, we were supposed to finally get Black Beetles' ID. What's the point in him keeping Rani if he's never going to use her? If the awful rumors are true and DC are combining the two titles (this was assumed because Booster was prominent on the cover despite him being the leader in JLGL) then how can the Time Masters be featured in a book that already has such a big cast?

What does it mean for Booster?
I'm trying to stay cool and collected about this semi-reboot. I figured Booster wouldn't really be touched because he wasn't a Silver Ager. Plus he's one of the few characters that knows what's going on with the timeline. But for some reason they decided to redo his costume. But here's a little known artist tip: don't try to "fix" a look that isn't broken. This current one doesn't scream "Booster Gold." Look at Guy, that's the same look minus the hair that he had from the first JLI. It's iconic. It's like Kyles' mask, you see it and know it's Guy.
