> Besides that fact, McCarthy's anti-communism has played a major part in DCU history for a long time. It's now canon that in the comics, McCarthy ordered the JSA to reveal their identities for fear of them secretly being communists, thus the reason the JSA quit for a number of years.

No, HUAC did... which McCarthy, being a Senator instead of a member of the House, had nothing to do with. Sorry, that's just a frequent pet peeve of mine. \:\)

No such thing as HUAC, just a pet peeve of mine ;-p It is House Committee on UnAmerican Activities. Pro Communists have changed it to be commonly referred to as the House UnAmerican Activities Committee to give it a bad name. Your overall point is clearly valid though. I'm just a stickler for that stuff. \:\-\)
