"52 Pick-Up" continues! Booster Gold has been tasked with preventing the origins of the world's greatest heroes from unraveling. Next up is his greatest challenge yet: preventing one of the most horrific wrongs that's ever befallen a hero in the DC Universe. Leaping into the pages of BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE, Booster attempts to stop a tragedy that he discovers never should've happened - the Joker shooting and paralyzing Barbara Gordon, Batgirl. Plus, what dark secret is Rip Hunter keeping from Booster? 
  
Rip Hunter informs Booster Gold that he will help him save Ted Kord but first they need to stop the Joker from shooting Barbara Gordon in the past.  Booster agrees and tries to surpise the Joker before he attacks Barbara but he is captured instead.   
Skeets frees him and the two race off the save Barbara. 
Meanwhile back at Rip's lab, Rip is torturing Rex Hunter for information.  Rex starts to rant that he will one day kill both Rip and Booster but he is suddenly ripped from the time stream.  It's reveled that the Time Stealers have killed Rex back when he was a baby. 
Once Booster and Skeet get the Gordon apartment it is already too late and the Joker has already shot Barbara.  The Joker then turns his attention to Booster and beats him to a pulp.   
Booster wakes up in Rip's Lab and forces Rip to send him back to the moment when the Joker attacks the Gordons.  After being sent back several time Booster is forced to realize he can change time set in stone. 
But the last scene is The Black Beetle, the current Blue Beetle and Orginal Beetle stepping out of a  time portal explaining they need to save Ted Kord to save the Universe.

Booster Gold#5 - Geoff Johns at his best 0

It just keeps getting better and better!Rip convinces Booster that he must save Barbara Gordon aka Batgirl from being shot by the Joker. As a point of note, Ted Kord (Blue Beetle) did love her and Rip uses that as motivation.Rip also promises Booster that as soon as Batgirl is saved, they will travel to the point in time where the Blue Beetle was shot and save him too. Fan's of these characters will know that the Beetle was Booster Gold's best friend.The Book cuts to a heart-breaking showdown ...
