I don't necessarily disagree with the core of your argument, there are valid points therein, but for me the more serious problem behind the JSA in recent years is the chronic mismanagement and needless tinkering from DC comics - the gamble of ditching the past and restarting from the beginning for the great 2011 revamp was a brave one, and in my view paid off handsomely. We were delivered a brave new world that could have run and run thanks to James Robinson's skilled worldbuilding and gift for character, here we are though with the ill-advised Worlds End and not three years into this new era DC are all too willing to throw gasoline on the barely introduced Earth-2 universe and torch it to ash for a flash-in-the-pan sales event... it looks and reads like gross irresponsibility from the publisher. Of short-term thinking and profit before sustainability.

What happens once Worlds End concludes should be a cause for real concern for all JSA fans, as if the Earth-2 concept is mortally wounded as a result of all of this there is no going back to sunnier days. \(broken\)

Pre-Flashpoint, Kara encountered a world nearly identical to the pre-Crisis Earth-Two. We can say "nearly" because they apparently experienced the original Crisis too, and it somehow led to the disappearance of their Superman, but they certainly still had their Power Girl.

Since that world wasn't involved in Flashpoint, then it should still exist. (Unless it's been an object of recent interest by Darkseid.)

Something essentially the same as the pre-Crisis Earth-Two still is out there somewhere, and could be acknowledged at some point.
