Quote:man, would love to see a real COIE, and have E1 brought back as real earth!
But it wouldn't be Earth-1, not the Earth-1 you have in your head. Earth-1 & 2 ceased to exist in 1985, with all of the time having passed since then what would you think Earth-1 would be like Now? It simply wouldn't be what you rememberd it to be.
Geoff Johns tried a modern visit to Earth-2 in the first JSA Annual after Infinite Crisis and it didn't really work, the characters were there yes but despite attempts to say this was Earth-2 here and Now it was actually a peculiar world stuck in 1985 - nothing had really progressed past that point. Same costumes, same fashions, same people.
I love the Earth-2 of that era, love it to bits, but there really isnt any way to revisit it now, too much time has passed and too much else has happened since.
But since the COIE never really happened, then would we now just be getting back the current heros and villains at their classic selves, powers and origins and all?
