That's why Superman (Kal-L) and Powergirl (Kara Zor-L), the only two Kryptonians on that earth, are missing because Superman was in Limbo with other refugees like Alexander Luthor, his Lois and Superboy Prime; and Power Girl survived into the Earth we've been reading for the past 20 years.

Jay was made a native to the post-crisis earth, which was like a life raft to save those who survived, mixing the remaining earths into one, while Powergirl, like E2 Superman and the other three, is a space/time outsider which is why new earth has a Supergirl, Powergirl's alternate self, because Powergirl wasn't suppose to exist anymore but a fluke saved her.
The earth 2 "2" I believe is based on "nature abhors a vacuum, and since Powergirl, and E2 Superman's body, was on new earth when 52 happened, repair work on the anomalies, perhaps by the Monitors, were done by taking advantage to what Mister Mind was doing and turned one of the 52 universes into a new earth 2 as a patch to seal up the gap in case Powergirl and E2 Superman's existence was threatening the fabric of time/space since they weren't suppose to exist anymore which is probably why E2 Superman, Superboy Prime, Alex Luthor, and Lois Lane had to stay in that pocket universe, while Powergirl alone wasn't a big enough threat to the fabric of the DC universe.
