Worth mentioning? It's a safe bet that this isn't the Crime Syndicate from Morrison's run, since they still exist in the Antimatter Universe. (DiDio's confirmed this, which I'd wondered since they popped up on this Earth's flash-in in 52 #52.) This is a Crime Society, based on the original JSA. \:\) So it's really all of their first appearances.

Right. Earth-3 appears to be something like "evil Earth-2, if Earth-2 had undergone analogous history for its GA characters."

Anti-matter Earth is "evil Earth-Sigma/Zero," and has its own JSA counterpart, the Crime Lodge.
