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! \:\)

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*
