Hee hee, I'm still tripping over the fact I'm now supposed to believe there are 52 versions of a woman who's not even supposed to exist in this universe in the first place! lol.

I've said this before, but since this is a "new" Earth 2 there really doesn't have to be any reason to tie the JSA to WW II.

If I'm remembering correctly it was Paul Levitz who wrote the origin for the JSA and established they were formed at the start of World War II. True, the original JSA series mentioned the second World War and established they became the Justice Battalion or whatever, but now that was "New Earth" JSA. It really doesn't have to be that way on this Earth 2 any longer.

The reason why people keep having a problem with this Robin/age issue is because they keep assuming that this Earth 2 has to follow the exact same history as the original Earth Two. This doesn't have to be the case.

If DC wants to keep the Justice Society Infinity viable, they're either going to have to discard the WW II origin for the JSA or establish that their aging process has been slowed down. Otherwise even the members of Infinity Inc have to be pretty old. For instance, unless Batman and Catwoman had Huntress at a late age, she would have to be pushing 50 herself.

DC ran into this problem with Black Canary when they moved her from Earth Two to Earth One. Eventually it reached a point where Black Canary had to be much older than Green Arrow. So they established she was the daughter of the orignal Black Canary. But eventually it's going to reach a point where the daughter has to be getting up there in years, too. We knew that Larry Lance and Black Canary were married in the Starman and Black Canary issues of Brave and Bold in the 60's. That was 40 years ago or so. The daughter would presumably be in her mid 30's now? The day will come where they can't claim she's the daughter of the original Black Canary.

If we get to see Earth 2 more I suspect they will establish an explaination for the age problem.
