Justice League International Volume 5 (2011)
Page 6, panel 2
Animal Man, Blue Beetle, Booster Gold, Elongated Man, Fire, Flash, Ice, Metamorpho, Mister Miracle, and Power Girl stand ready in the New York JLI Embassy, waiting for Maxwell Lord to lead them on a tour of embassies. Booster passes the time by needling Beetle.
Page 9, panel 2
FIRST APPEARANCE: First appearance of Inada Akatsu, the Tokyo JLI Embassy Chief. Also the first appearance of Secretary Cyndy Kurahara and Engineer Rodan Katatami.
Page 11, panel 2
Beetle is very irritated that the Brazilian JLI Embassy has a swimming pool while the New York Embassy does not. Considering the fact that all JLI Embassies have teleporters installed for immediate transportation, this seems an odd and pointless gripe.
Page 11, panel 5
FIRST APPEARANCE: First appearance of Ernesto Lopez, the Brazilian JLI Embassy chief.
Page 19, panel 2
Booster and Beetle speculate that the Flash's sense of humor and attitude may be entirely compatible with theirs. If the three weren't in different branches of the League, perhaps they would have been known as "Blue and Gold and Red."
Page 23, panel 1
FIRST APPEARANCE: First appearance of Michael Morice, the London JLI Embassy Chief. Booster and his teammates participate in a fire drill in the London JLI Embassy, an unusually pointless exercise for a team of superheroes.
Page 24, panel 1
FIRST APPEARANCE: First appearance of Michael Morice's wife, Lisa, British Embassy Liaison.
Page 27, panel 2
FIRST APPEARANCE: First appearance of Joshua Barbazon, the Canberra, Australia JLI Embassy Chief. The Australian JLI Embassy was destroyed during the Invasion! mini-series, but re-construction is in progress.
Page 30, panel 1
The globetrotting Leaguers finally arrive at the Paris JLI Embassy, where for the first time Booster Gold meets Sue Dibny, Elongated Man's wife and an honorary member of the Justice League.
Page 32, panel 5
Lord announces the JLI's acquisition of the South Pacific island KooeyKooeyKooey.
Page 33, panel 1
The Justice League visits KooeyKooeyKooey for the first time. Soon the name KooeyKooeyKooey will be synonymous with Booster Gold and Blue Beetle. (See Justice League International #33 for details.)
Boosterrific Review: This issue features two stories, "The Man I Never Was" and "Around the World With the JLI!", both enjoyable but largely forgettable, character-driven tales worth a read.
Boosterrific Rating: Gold Standard.
