    I am glad you've been able to get behind it, I wanted too but just can't. I gave it the whole first arc and I think that's fair. I have rel issues with Alan, as I have noted (I also agree that he's too "perfect" and is in danger of becoming the mary sue of EARTH-2). I personally think its a mistake to have an editorial edict saying that characters can't have counterparts on different earths, its not THAT confusing and I feel that DC editorial seem to think fans are a lot simpler then they really are!

See this is one of the flaws with Earth 2 for me (of which there are several let me assure you!), in his Comicvine Podcast James Robinson has made clear the 'No duplicates' edict from up above extends even the rogues Galleries of Superman and Batman - Incredibly no Joker or Lex Luthor existed on Earth 2 for example. But Catwoman did. So too does Supergirl/Kara. We know Lois Lane as well existed.
Robinson also makes clear that he isn't allowed to create a 'Hawkman' for his Hawkgirl though is keen that he might be able to wrangle one in the future, meantime over in Savage Hawkman we're introduced to what may be Shayera Thal, a.k.a Hawkgirl... so another potential double standard?

It was a bold move splitting the DCU up with the 'new 52 project like this and it's a worthwhile effort, but the downsides are apparent. While Earth 2 is in its own bubble and under construction as a universe the Earth-1 of the Justice League etc is well established. But I have to say the absence of Doctor Mid-Nite, Doctor Fate, Wildcat and all these other characters from the main DCU is going to end up very inconvenient and irritating for writers in the future. Doctor Fate especially was always an important chesspiece in the DCU and major events...
