But rather than having the Atom revived from death by the Spectre (a tedious trick, as well as a gimmick that had already been done in the Silver Age), Superman's and Batman's involvement would be carefully rewritten to include the other characters who had prominent positions in ALL-STAR COMICS but who wouldn't be likely members of the JSA: Biff Bronson, Red White & Blue, and Hop Harrigan. Possibly also Ultra-Man if I couldn't think of any other way to duplicate Superman's last-minute bomb-stopping save.

What about the heroes who REPLACED Superman and Batman? Would you like to see Iron Munro and Flying Fox somehow put into the story?

No. They're too young and essentially trivial to my mind, to have played such a significant role in the founding of the JSA. I mean, if they had been there, could you really see them being foisted off in the Young All-Stars later on?
