- Week eighteen sees the understated funeral for Booster Gold. Black Adam honors the heroes of the royal wedding, though Montoya wants nothing more than to climb back into a bottle. And the Detective Chimp and Ralph lose a colleague in the Croatoan Society to the Helm of Fate, and the Shadowpact is concerned about its affect on Ralph.
First appearances of Daniel Carter, Edogawa, Honest Abe, Terri Thirteen, and the Croatoan Society. Apparent death of Tim Trench. The appearance by the Shadowpact is a continuity glitch that the editor has acknowledged was a error on the part of the creators and editors of 52.
