- Justice League International
On panel 4, page 4 of issue #21 of Justice League International (written by J.M. DeMatteis in
1988), Booster Gold says the following:
"Well, Cass loves Kathleen... but she thinks he's in love with Cecile, and... No, wait... That's
my soap opera."
This letter was posted in the letters column for issue #24:
"Although we at NBC were thrilled to find out that Booster's favorite soap opera is "Another
World," he either does not watch too regularly or has simply been off the planet too long. I am
sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but he missed a lot.
"Not only did Cecile leave the country over a year ago, but Cass's beloved Kathleen is dead.
Really dead, not presumed dead. Plane crash. Cass sort of wanted to be dead, too, but he
recovered. Of course, it wasn't really Cass; it was his evil double Rex. But the real Cass
returned to drop a chandelier on Rex, so now Cass is really Cass again. Cass grieved for over a
year over Kathleen, whose sister M.J. had kind of a crush on Cass. M.J. had to leave town on
her wedding day, however, when Adam found out she had been a prostitute. So recently Cass
has fallen for Nicole. Of course, since Iris is back in town, well, anything can happen.
"Just thought you should know.
