> ....about the new Earth-2.
Keep in mind that we just about NOTHING about the new multiverse. (Megaverse?)
> Okay, are there or are there NOT additional versions of the JSA heroes living there? (For example, it has its own versions of Jay Garrick and Alan Scott?)
It appears to have its own versions of JSA members who exist on New Earth.
> Plus, it also has its own versions of Ray Palmer and Hal Jordan? Are they also a GL and an "Atom", with the traditional powers we'd expect? If so, where'd Hal get his ring from? Is there an Oa in the reality of this new "Earth-2"?
We don't know about if there is a Ray Palmer or Hal Jordan on Earth-2. Pre-Crisis they had established that the GLC only existed on Earth-1. That is likely to be the case post-Infinite, with the GLC only existing in New Earth's reality. But we still don't know if that's the case.
> Also, is Power Girl's origin being altered again, with it being said that she's actually from this new Earth-2, but she's not Kryptonian? AGAIN?
No. Her origin still stands.
> Oh...and what's this about Mr. Mind EATING spacetime, and the 52 new worlds resulting? (I thought they were created by Superboy Prime's and Alex Luthor's machine.)
No. The machine created the 52 worlds as exact replicas of the mainstream DC universe, but Mister Mind's cosmic rampage changed each of the other worlds into alternate versions.
> Also, are these 52 Earths in the same universe as the mainstream DC Earth, but in other parts of the galaxy (or maybe even in OTHER galaxies), or are they in entirely separate universes, right where Earth is supposed to be, but in THOSE realities?
I believe that they are in alternate realities seperated by vibrational barriers. As every other instance of alternate realities at DC has been.
Everything else, we shall wait and see.
This one part throws me-"No. The machine created the 52 worlds as exact replicas of the mainstream DC universe, but Mister Mind's cosmic rampage changed each of the other worlds into alternate versions.
I thought Alex and Prime were trying to create DIFFERENT realities, and that's why they were forcing together different versions of Earth, trying for a "just right" reality.
Why (and HOW) is it now being said that each world/reality created was identical to the mainstream? I mean, didn't we even SEE that the new worlds were variants?
Also, WHAT cosmic rampage on the part of Mr. Mind? I wasn't aware of that part, and that's part of what I wanted to know. (And again, if the worlds were already different, how can HE now be said to have caused the differences? Were Alex and Prime working with him to alter each world their machine created?)Side point:
I only asked about Power Girl, Ray Palmer, and Hal because of some things said further down on the board. Someone seemed to suggest that Ray and Hal also exist on the new Earth-2, and someone else said something about PG's origin.
