> Oh my God! Could it be, the return of the one-true Infinity INC! I remember when I was first exposed to that group. Even though I didn't fully understand at that time why there were older versions of Wonder Woman, Superman, etc (but i did learn!), I was a huge fan of Infinity INC and All-Star Squadron. Stayed with Infinity until it was cancelled, and was happy that Geoff Johns brought so many back in JSA (even though I still hate Fury II's final fate). I'm actually kinda hoping we get an ongoing set on this Earth-2. Even if it's not the same like DC's been saying, having a book that has elements and feeling of that world would be great! Maybe this will be the "Justice Society Infinity" i've heard rumors about. Hoping!

What's funny is I've heard people already complain that it will be too confusing trying to keep track of 2 Justice Societies on 2 different Earths. First of all, this is nothing new for DC. In the old days we had doubles of most of the heroes and infinite Earths. Not to mention a comic dealing with the JSA in the 1940'sand one that dealt with them and their children in the 1980's. I didn't find it confusing at all.

And Marvel seems to be doing just fine with their alternate Earths. There is the regular Marvel Universe, the Ultimate Universe, and the Zombie Universe just for starters. Everyone thought there would be too much confusion with a team of X-Men and a team of Ultimate X-men. But I've never heard of anyone not being able to tell them apart.

Give readers some credit. I think we can keep track of all the different versions of Flash, Green Lantern, and Hawkman. Surely we can keep track of 2 very different versions of the JSA.

I agree. When I first picked up Infinity Inc, i admit to be confused a little bit, but a little research and back issues and by the time Crisis rolled around, I knew what heroes were on what earth and so forth. I think if DC is already doing some good explanations with saying there are now 52 universes, and just getting it down as to what is on each earth. The way Marvel has kept the regular and ultimate worlds separate works great. I think things were the most confusing with DC when they merged everything, then couldn't figure out who fit where and when. How many years were people confused about Hawkman until JSA fixed it? As long as they don't continue with retcon after retcon they shouldn't have another Donna Troy problem. Just limit how many times the various worlds meet and I think it will work fine.
