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

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! \:\)
