SPOILERS ahead. You’ve been warned.
Action Comics #998 ends the six-part “Booster Shot” storyline which had Booster Gold and Superman traveling through time to get answers about Superman’s father. If you read Action Comics #997 you know Lois Lane and Superman’s son Jon are dead. Booster Gold finds this out near the end of issue #998 and moves to fix things best he can.
Since Booster Gold stole the time machine I assume he’s already in trouble, but bringing people back to life who are meant to be dead is probably a much bigger deal. We’ll see if his actions in this issue will be brought up in Action Comics 1000 April 19th.
