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).

A lot of the Vigilante series had the vague suggestion he was in the Old West as well. The OW connection was largely ignored with Vigilante so why not with a new Golden Arrow? If they can un-brain damage Connor tho' I'd love to see him take the identity and join the JSA.
