Cover Description: In the middle of a storm, Captain Atom is being struck by several lightning bolts while a bodiless apparition of an angry Red Tornado floats in the background. Beside the title are the faces of Justice League guest stars Mister Miracle, Black Canary, Booster Gold, and Blue Beetle.
Brief Synopsis: The Justice League combats a runaway Red Tornado.
Costume Worn: MARK I power-suit
Issue Notes: The presence of Black Canary indicates that the events in this issue presumably take place prior to the events in Justice League International #14, which also has a June 1988 cover date.
Page 10, panel 4
Booster Gold, Black Canary II, and Mister Miracle answer Blue Beetle II's call to action when the Justice League are called into action against a sentient hurricane that is threatening the Louisiana coast.
Page 13, panel 1
When Black Canary reveals that the air elemental controlling the hurricane is actually former Justice Leaguer Red Tornado, only Booster doesn't seem to know who the others are talking about. If he does, he keeps his mouth unusually well shut.
Page 16, panel 2
Doing his part to defend the natives of Louisiana from Red Tornado, Booster shatters a tree tossed by the hurricane force wind to save the lived of a family in a sports car.
Boosterrific Review: Surprisingly, the story of Captain Atom's secret life and his interaction with his supporting cast is more entertaining than his adventures with the Justice League in this run-of-the-mill issue. The issue suffers at the hands of art team Pat Broderick and Bob Smith, who combine to render an inconsistently cartoonish environment instead of the naturalistic realism that befits the story of Cary Bates and Greg Weisman.
Boosterrific Rating: Tarnished.
