> Um, no. As far as I know, 1940 to 1956 is 16 years, and a ten year old boy would be 26 in 1956.

Yeah, that was bad math on my part. Sorry about that.

> However, once 1980 rolled around, the JLA members certainly weren't in their 50's, so the JSAers couldn't have been in their 70's either.

But the JSAers were. Read ALL-STAR SQUADRON ANNUAL #2 for the scoop on how & why the JSAers appeared younger in the 70s and 80s than they actually were.

> The Earth 2 Robin, while having been around since the 1940's, was not active in crime fighting for the entire time between his debut and his death in Crisis (roughly 45 years). Rather, it has been shown that, given his education, law career, and ambassadorship, he more than likely was semi-retired upon reaching adulthood. I put him at about 50 years old at the time of the Crisis. So, as I figure it, he has about 20 to 25 years experience.

At the time of the Crisis, using your starting age, Robin was 55. And Robin did semi-retire when he reached adulthood, but he was also still semi-active. You still have 26 years of active experience plus his semi-active years. I'd give him 4 years for that. In either view, he has had plenty of crimefighting experience. I think the original posters point of view was publishing history not the actual comic book stories.

Either way, The Earth 2 Robin has way more experience than even the most seasoned crime fighter of Earth One.
