...where will that leave the JSA on the mainstream DC Earth?

Will it turn out they've been missing from their Earth for some time, and now have to go home? If that were to happen, what about the fact the DC Mainstream Earth's history says the JSA existed there during the 40's?

Someone said recently that in the "place" Wally West is living, there was a version of Jay there. But Jay is still on the Mainstream Earth.

Anyone have any ideas on how this will work out, and what effect, if any, it might have on Power Girl and her origins?

I got this from a good source.

Earth Two will exist. The time line will be the 80's (sometime before crisis).
Yes, there will be two versions of Jay and Allen.
But they will have alternate backgrounds.

The Jay and Allen that will exist on Earth Two will be clueless to anybody in the mainstream time and only exist in the stories you have read precrisis.

This is DC's way of satisfying both sides of the fanboy world that they have pissed off through the years.

The precris Kent Nelson, Carter Hall , Clark Kent, Dick Grayson, Helena Wayne and whoever will exist on Earth two.
The Power girl that is in this mainstream time will be from this Earth Two.
She will have to make a choice if she wants to go home or stay here.


Did I lose you?

No, but DC might.

This is crazy.

They've already established she's the cousin of the Superman who was murdered by Superboy Prime.

How can she now be the cousin of ANOTHER Superman?

(And how could she have landed on the mainstream Earth AND on Earth-2? This makes NO sense.)

And you mentioned Jay and Allen having different backgrounds on the "new" Earth-2?

Oh good. Create even more conflict by supposedly restoring the pre-Crisis Earth-2, but then go and change the backgrounds of two of the mains, while allowing their original backgrounds to remain with the mainstream versions? BAH!

By the way, is this Earth-2 in another realm, or is it in the same physical universe as the mainstream Earth? (In other words, can you get there from the mainstream Earth without interdimensional travel?)

I also LOVE the fact that Wally and Barry have apparently been said to be living on that Earth as well.

Again, makes PERFECT sense.

Not.

Actually I am down with this and it will most likely not be as confusing as you make it sound.

I suspect that she will be the cousin of the Earth-2 Superman who will BE the one who died in IC and that they will work in some method for her having jumped worlds about the time of the original Crisis. One more retcon for PG perhaps, but a potentially uniting one.

Nobody seems to have a problem with this over at Marvel (or the Mirror Universe in Star Trek). A book like Exiles is built on alternate reality versions of characters that we know, and nobody freaks out by there being a Wolverine who stayed in Alpha Flight on some other world. Why would it be so confusing to have a "prime universe" version of the JSAers and an Earth 2 version, as long as the writers keep us somehow clued in to which they use in an instance?

Actually its not that they came from that universe. Their speed force trick in IC shunted them to that universe and they ahve bene living there for the last year or so. They are not native to that universe, just temporarily hanging out there. The only potential problem is what that might mean for the theorotical "native" Wally and Barry, but that can be dealt with in any number of ways.

I actually think that this can be a very clean way of returning the multiverse. I am cautiously optismistic until I see how the stories play out. Even as a second grader I had no problems with the original multiverse once I had a chance to figure it out, so you have to figure it can be remade in a sensible way.

I kinda doubt it!

If this is a new Earth 2, it will have to be a different animal than the original Earth 2, even if they make it similar to it.

Powergirl and the other JSA'lers/All-stars were contributions of the original Earth 2 universe to Post-Crisis Earth, when the remaining realities were replaced by a single timeline, containing elements of all five realities, so that explanation that she comes from yet another parallel dimension doesn't make much sense.

I agree.

The original Earth-1/Earth-2 situation made perfect sense.

Even something they added (and then withdrew?) at one point, saying Earth-2 was 20 years behind Earth-1 (with it being 1950 there when it was 1970 on Earth-1) made pefect sense. It even helped explain the planet being called "Earth-2", and helped explain why the JSA wasn't an additional 20 years older.

It's just that since they blended the universes (and had the Karkull thing and some others stuff explain the JSA's ages), THAT has made so much sense, it's CRAZY to go and change it now.

Next thing you'll be telling me is that Superman can actually fly instead of just leaping great distances. I mean, COME ON! Don't be SILLY! ;-p

You know, in a way, it WOULD make sense, if only they hadn't had Kal-L show up during IC and have it established she was HIS cousin.

We know she can't be from the mainstream universe's Krypton, so to say she came from the NEW Earth-2's reality would help iron out the wrinkles in her backstory to some extent.

She somehow landed on the wrong Earth, in the wrong reality.

Makes a whole lot more sense than trying to say she came from a Krypton that never existed. (The original Earth-2's Krypton.)

With her being proved the cousin of the original E-2's Kal-L, tho', how can they now say she's got the chance to go "home"?

She's NOT from this new E-2. She's from the one that never existed...

I have a headache. \:\-\|

Within the strand of Universes lies an Earth 2 that resembles Kingdom Come. This would be better along marketing lines because #1 Kingdom Come is still trade paperbacked and it is one of DC's more famous stories, #2 it seems to be the original idea for the Kingdom series as first envisioned by Alex Ross and Mark Waid (Ross happens to be incorporating his own designs into the latest JSA), #3 there are tons of hints about a link between Kingdom Come and this reality, but not much about Earth 2.

Kingdom Come doesn't differentiate between the JSA and the JLA. Kingdom Come also has an aging Power Girl that is still in her prime. Kingdom Come also has been visited as recently as the Flash, merely 4 years ago.

This would give the JSA more impetus to find legacies and help legacies. They see the tragedy that comes from Kingdom Come and how the lack of guarding legacies ended up with a generation of youthful heroes out of control. The Kingdom Come link also can be seen with the coming of the German Heroes and a Vandal Savage who still might have his immortality (the KC version had German Heroes and a Vandal Savage who retained his immortality).

When did they say it was 1950 on Earth-2 and 1970 on Earth-1? I remember O'Neil saying Earth-2's HISTORY was 20 years ahead of Earth-1's, but NOT what you said, Niddle.

I say there's a whole Multiverse out there, with an Earth-1, Earth-2, Earth-3, etc. that NEVER met The Anti-Monitor. Supergirl, Flash, Dove, Kole, and others didn't die at all! Jason Todd is still Batman's partner, and the JSA is on their planet, welcoming JLA members, and making the trek to Earth-1 every so often.

Remember, it was called Crisis On Infinite Earths! By sheer definition, that means there was NO way the Anti-Monitor could hope to succeed in his scheme! \:\)

I agree. I never heard that Earth 2 was 20 years behind (1950's vs 1970's), but I do remember it being 20 years ahead in terms of superhero apprearances (but not the actual date - 1970 on Earth 2 was still 1970 on Earth 1).

The thing is, the merging of the realities happened, not because of the Anti-Monitor's destroying all but one in the present, but because of the big bang being altered IN THE PAST.

Once that happened, NO multiverse came to be. No parallel universes...

NO infinite Earths.

THAT'S why there was only one Earth when the heroes returned to the present.

Because the big bang never caused multiple realities to arise.

Only one universe.

Except for the AM having been there and being one of the parties involved in what messed with the big bang, he had nothing to do with the results...

A single universe post-Crisis.

Since that didn't get changed by Zero Hour, the only event that could possibly have changed things is the Infinite Crisis.

The method used by Superboy Prime and Alex Luthor is still a bit of a mystery. Where did all those Earths come from? According to one of DC's people (Kurt Busiek, I think), while it looked like Alex was blending Earths, he was actually blending entire universes.

Some got merged, some got destroyed, and it seems some remained.

WHERE did they come from to begin with, tho'?

From the big bang on, there'd only been ONE!

Did he reach into something BEYOND the multiverse? Maybe what we knew as hypertime? Did he mess with hypertime and change its nature so that you CAN interact with different realities without causing the fabric of one or more universes to fall apart?

That'd be the simplest explanation.



I don't even want to think about Alex possibly reaching back to the mainstream DCU's big bang, and causing the fracturing into a multiverse back then. Too much in the way of temporal anomalies. (Including the chance that'd mean the JSA's Earth DID end up existing after all, but here they are still a part of the mainstream Earth's history?!?!?) *gah*

Something was said to the effect that 'whatever the eventual fate of Earth-1, Earth-2 would have it happen 20 years later'. (Or was it ten?)

In other words, Earth-2 was literally behind the times.

This apparently helped explain it being called "Earth-2" as well as why the JSA members weren't EONS older than they were. (Okay...substitute the word "years" for "eons". \:\-p )

I know I read this, but apparently it was a concept DC briefly flirted with, then abandoned.

Alexander did all his merging/whatever in the dimension we're reading about, but NOT in all of the dimensions. There is still an Earth-1, Earth-2, Earth-C, Earth-3, etc.

There always WILL be.

I thought it was the other way around, that what would happen on Earth-2 would eventually happen to Earth-1. That's why Earth-2 had their heroes first.

The name thing came about because the elder JSA members were mature enough NOT to argue about such things with the younger JLAers.

Here's a quote from the 2 page spread that (I think) originally appeared in Adventure Comics when the JSA started their run there. It was reprinted in last year's Justice Society Vol. 1.

For just as the geography of the planets was similar, so too was their history -- save that on Earth-One, the age of heroes had begun twenty-five years later than on Earth-Two.

Their histories were similar - WW II happened in the 1940's on both Earths, for example, but the heroes appeared at different times (1940's vs 1960's). It was not 1950 on Earth 2 at the same time it was 1970 on Earth 1.

I DID like how Big Bang Comics had that idea, though! THAT must've been where Niddle heard that idea of it being 1950 on one world, and 1970 on another from.

That way, the heroes of each Earth could team up, and be in their primes, instead of one team being so much older than the other.

The revision of the big bang during the original CRISIS story made that not so.

From the big bang on, there were no other realities. Only one. One universe, thus one Earth.

Out in hypertime....another story.

As for what Alex did, since he was merging entire universes, while we saw the effects in the DC mainstream, it was apparently drawing on other EXISTING realities.

WHERE did they come from? And the ones that weren't destroyed or merged with the mainstream must still be there.

No. This was a tool to explain the JSA still being active. Not as much time had passed on Earth-2 as we'd have thought, since it wasn't the same year there as it was here and on Earth-1. Again, they were "behind the times".

>

This was apparently a short-lived retcon to make the use of Earth-2 for the JSA's Earth (and some other things) actually make sense tho'.

Of course they'd agree, since their world was, for example, experiencing 1950 when Earth-1 was experiencing 1960 or 1970. Their reality was legitimately second in line.

That's not the statement I have in mind.

It specifically said that one would reach its 'eventual destiny' after the other, explaining there was a difference in time between the two.

What I'd read did involve DC's Earth-1 and Earth-2, tho'.

What was "Big Bang Comics"?

I'm not familiar with that at all.

Well, let us know when (if?) you ever find it. Personally, I think you are mistaken/misremembering events. I've never heard anything like what you've been saying and I've been a big JSA fan going on 25 years now.

The DC-Multiverse was a special case, being created out of Kronas folly whose existence ended up being negated in COIE. But that doesn't negate the existence of parallel universes beyond the now non-existent DC-multiverse and in fact it did not. Both crossovers with the Milestone and the Wildstorm Earth happend in continuity. Hypertime wasn't even invented then.
So there always was a multiverse out there.

As for Alex bringing back the old DC-multiverse, the way i understood it, they used the Anti-Monitor's corpse to bring(belch?) re-create them back. Apparently the AM wasn't altered into a post-crisis version and still contained the essence of all that lost realities. At least it is the only thing which halfway makes sense.

When the first crossovers happend, it was the sixties, meaning that the war-time heroes of the JSA were 20 years older than the JLA'lers. That gap grew over the decades making other explanations necessary as for why the JSA was still in good shape like Ian Kargul.

It does look to me that the rule was the other way around with E2 Batman getting killed by a superhuman, meaning that something similar would eventually happed to E1 Batman 20 years later. But i don't think they put it down in stone like that.

Also if you check out Infinity Inc., you will notice that these stories indeed play in the 80ties of Earth 2, not the sixties.

An Image comic doing stories in the Silver Age/Golden Age style. Some of it were past stories of Image heroes like Mighty Man and Darkhawk, most of them unknowns, fighting aliens, commies, supervillians, meeting their counterparts on parallelworlds etc... It was pretty much a hommage to the comics of that area and quite funny.

Personally, I used to like to think that Earth Two moved/vibrated a little slower than Earth-One, which helped explain the age discrepencies.

Wouldn't Earth-2 have vibrated FASTER, given the fact the JSA was older than the JLA?
