Quote:> A few corrections. Neither Wildcat nor Mr. Terrific were present for the Ian Karkull story that granted the majority of the JSA slow aging.
Not in the original telling. I'm curious, for some reason I thought the story had been retold Post-COIE with an altered cast, and for some reason I had convinced myself Wildcat had been a part of it. That misconception may have come from a conversation with my brother (as many of my misconceptions do). Has the original story been retold with a Post-COIE cast? Remember the original story had Earth-2's Superman, Lois Lane, Batman, Robin, and Catwoman who would all be absent from a Post-COIE telling. Someone likely would have taken their places to defeat Karkull's henchmen.
Well, without Catwoman, there'd have to have been a different villain too for a henchman. As far as I know, there was never an official retelling (as there was for the origin of the JSA). I like the Ian Karkull story, it's an elegant and entertaining story in its own right while at the same time explaining various continuity issues (the coming and going of a couple members, why they and their significant others didn't age as quickly quickly), a good way to do a retcon.
Quote:Ah yes, I did remember the Valhalla thing after I had posted originally. Where did Pratt express those concerns, was it that short-lived early '90s JSA ongoing after Armageddon Inferno? I only ever read a couple issues of that.
Yep, the Parobeck series. While a little light-hearted, I enjoyed that series a lot and would have loved to see where they would have gone in the second year as they went slow to organically bring the team all back together. I liked Kiku a whole lot better than Jakeem as a new person to command the Thunderbolt, while at the same time keeping Johnny.
