Threshold #8 - Am I Blue? You'd Be Too

So Keith Giffen's invisible series Threshold limps to a close this week with even less fanfare than the title itself ever got, which was slim to none. The issue dispatches the fates of the Hunted, a bunch of characters never really heard of before and unlikely ever to be heard from again, not even the "dark and gritty" update of Captain Carrot. But happening in the background is one little development of note. Two pages.

We've been cancelled! )

And thus another of the DCnU's big, dramatic plot twists peters out, like letting the helium out of a balloon. The $64 question is, where will this beloved character fetch up next? Someplace better, I hope. JLA, perhaps?

Justice League International Annual #1 - The dire consequences of ever taking Booster's calls

1 page + 1 panel from JLI Annual 1.

The setup: Booster Gold has lured the remaining JLI'ers and a couple prospective new members to the Hall of Justice by claiming the members of the main League will be there. Blue Beetle comes, but isn't interested in Booster's plans for the JLI; he's looking to meet Superman, Wonder Woman or at least Cyborg, for help in removing the scarab from his spine.

Booster promises him OMAC's help instead.

Yeah. How's that working out, Jaime? )

Well, crud.
