    • W: Geoff Johns; P: Dale Eaglesham; I: Ruy José; C: Jeromy Cox; L: Rob Leigh; E: Eddie Berganza, Adam Schlagman (assistant)
    • Starman makes reference to murder not being "part of the code", Kenz Nuhor and a vote of 10 to 9 - all primary story elements of Adventure Comics #342. He is shown unmasked for the first time, revealing a beard similar to that worn by Star Boy beginning in Keith's Giffen's stint on Legion of Super-Heroes v2. He also mentions being trapped somewhere that was "blown to Kingdom Come", implying that he is the same Starman seen in that series.
