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....

They should have definitely rebooted EVERYTHING, because now some stories have happened, but they couldn't happen.

Like the Death of Superman... It happened. *pulls out TPBs* Wait, that couldn't happen because it has Matrix Supergirl, Ma and Pa Kent, etc etc etc...

So apparently some version of the stories happened before. Superman died. He came back. Apparently that's all that's important. DC is saying that we don't need to read anything that came before, but yet they still insist that so many things DID happen.

Anywho, what I'm really truly hoping for is that the JSA we know and love (including Stargirl and Cyclone and other new ones) were all shunted to Earth 2 after Flashpoint and they'll still have the memories of what happened before. It would definitely make JSA different from the rest of the DC books on the stands. That way the history is still intact, the characters are intact, but the stage is different...

We shall see.
