Wasn't the original's adventures set in the Old West? That might be pushing it to keep him around, although I am, in fact, shocked that DC hasn't used the name elsewhere.

Comics were very inconsistant in their portrayal of the Old West at the time that it's not always easy to tell if it's the Old West or not. While most of the stories, it seems obviously that it is the Old West, I also recall seeing a story or two that suggested it was the modern day West, just with the O.W. trappings (ie, everyone still gets around on horseback and dress in period clothes, but they have modern telephones in their homes).
