    Clue 1. Booster orginally wanted his name to gold star but reporters heard him wrong. Supernova has a gold star.

    Clue 2. Booster can use his powers to teleport things, as seen in his limited series. Supernova can also do this.

    Clue 3. TIMEISBROKEN

    Lobo in a church? Unless it's the church of murderous killing I can't see it.

    Devilance got LOBOwned. Other than that, this issue was pretty dull. Question and Montoya > Starfire and friends.

    Anyone go to the 52 website and see the alternate ending to last week's issue?

    I enjoyed seeing Lobo this week quite a bit. Otherwise, meh. I miss me some Question/Renee. :(

    Renee and The Question are definitely my favorite plotline in the series. I do like Isis though, too, and I'm kind of curious where she's headed.

    Something told me this wasn't the end of Booster... I'm kinda under the impression that Supernova IS Booster...

    What this cover actually means remains to be seen however. I've yet to read this weeks issue for clues.

    Well, I think this issue established 2 likely personas. A new Booster and a new Fate (though that last remains to be seen.)

    Oh and Black Adam is a bit of a pervert :p

    The solicitation for #19 reads as follows, "What if I told you I could ? using Booster's DNA? bioengineer a superhero identity for you?"

    I got a pretty good read on who Booster is now, after reading this weeks issue. An interesting development indeed.

    This right here is a great page.

    I mean...

    I've never encountered him before. But I found him annoying.

    I gotta say, the chimp threw me off. It was cool at the end when they girl said "Did he just think the Helmet was talking to him?"

    I'm sure we'll see booster again. When and why, I don't know.

    Taken from Newsarama. Credit to those who complied these facts/speculations is given. This is not mine.

    From the day the cover for #19 showed up on the internets:

    Dates below are from users Stitch22 and Munkeypunk on the DC Forums and e5inc from Newsarama.

    Regarding the numbers on the cover of issue #19:

    0 - Zero Hour
    1935 - New Fun Comics #1 (First DC Comic)
    1938 - Action Comics #1 (First Superman)
    1939 - Detective Comics #27(First Batman)
    1941 - All Star Comics #8 (First Wonder Woman)
    1956 - Showcase #4 (First Barry Allen Flash - Start of the Silver Age)
    1985 - Crisis on Infinite Earths
    200? - Probably 2006, which is either Infinite Crisis or OYL. Notice the second 0 is partially cut-off.
    3006 - 1000 years in the future, usual haunt of the Legion of Super-Heroes.
    4006 - 2000 years in the future, possibly mentioned on the chalkboard.
    5252 - 52 concatenated with 52.
    85,271 - DC One Million

    Analysis:

    - The intriguing dates are 200?, 4006, and 5252.
    - It can be inferred that 200? is 2006 based on the presence of 3006 and 4006.
    - Booster came from the 25th Century, and that is none of the above.
    - Abra Kadabra came from the 64th Century, and that is none of the above.
    - Rip Hunter may have disappeared to 5252.
    - Is the second 0 of 200 being cut-off an artistic glitch, like the disappearing arm that touched Tim Trench of Week 18, or was it intentional?

    Wow, that was one harsh act. Very harsh indeed. Also, I think Wonder Girl is a bit off in her assessment.

    Detective Chimp is a member of the Shadowpact (which is that group around Ralph and the helmet) and was a major player in Day of Vengeance. He's actually quite funny, and is, err... third? greatest detective in the DC world, after Batman and Ralph Dinby... I'd say he's a bit ahead of The Question, personally...

    Took me by surprise. I wonder what his part in 52 is going to be, and whether or not we'll see another Booster Gold.

    Ya know, it just clicked for me... If that guy dies, there WILL be no Booster... I know, I'm a little dense... but if it really was Booster's fault, Skeets will fix things like this... right? Or will he make things worse? Because then, Booster NEVER would have been there, and he wouldn't have been there to fight Doomsday or to tell Batman to form that group to take out Brother Eye, but then Skeets would never be in this century to find the guy who would be Booster's ancestor and he would never be put in that room... but then, if something isn't done, Booster WILL exist and- *my head a-splode*
