My biggest fear about having Earth 2 is losing everything NEW that I loved about JSA. I loved Stargirl, Cyclone, Atom Smasher, Doc Midnight, Mr. Terrific, etc. as a team almost as much as I loved Jay, Alan, and Ted. I would hate to see all of the newer JSA members swept under the rug in order to bring back ones I don't have a personal attachment to. I didn't get into JSA until the Goyer revival, so I'm kinda attached to the characters... Though Jay, Alan, and Ted still remain three of my all-time favorite comic book characters, I'd hate to see the rest just forgotten about (yes, I know Michael has his own book, but he can't interact with the JSA if they're on different earths...)


Yeah, I'm shaking my head at the way they've gutted Titans history by having Cyborg be a founder member on the JLA instead of the Titans - that move appears to run a huge tram through the Wolfman/Perez Titans and I don't see any easy way around it.
Same goes for Hawkman and Mr Terrific here who clearly aren't linked to the JSA anymore.... I think Robinson is a traditionalist though and has a great love of continuity so it may be he'll have his own version of Hawkman and Terrific hopefully and will just move everything we've seen since 1999 to Earth-2. I hope so as it makes no sense to me to trash so much of their history and background. You really do need a solid foundation to work off when writing established characters like these, we've seen just how disasterous things can get by looking at how things unfolded in Legion of Superheroes after Zero Hour... reboots are never a solution really.

I think though the extent of the changes on some of these characters and DCs hypocrisy when it comes to 'protecting' books like Batman and Green Lantern is dangerously arrogant. They should have just rebooted everything, not cherry picked like this. It's alienating and confusing....
