It even helped explain the planet being called "Earth-2", and helped explain why the JSA wasn't an additional 20 years older.

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).

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.
