Any ideas who Powergirl and Huntress saw in the vortex (for lack of a better name?) Who were they following?

Edited to add: the more I think about it, the more I like it, it's a brand new universe to think about... and I don't know why I didn't have this reaction to the nu52.
Back around Infinite Crisis, when they brought the multiverse back, I thought the idea of an Earth-Two line of books would've been cool because there would've been more freedom to tell the kind of stories a writer wanted to tell. You can't kill Kal-El, but Kal-L is a different story, as evidenced by them actually killing Kal-L.

I figured then that the best writers would've wanted to be able to write stories in an ongoing line of books, with variations on the main heroes, but with that freedom to do things like we're seeing in the current Earth-2 book.

This book started off with a bang, it's got a writer who does a good job when he has that freedom to do his own thing, he's got his own little world to play in and he has a love for those original heroes and concepts. Remember, it all started with his mini-series "Golden Age", which led to Starman, which led to JSA, a title that had a longer run than it probably ever had before.

Some may compare Earth-2 to Ultimate Marvel, in that there's more freedom to go crazy with ideas, and I'm okay with that. Plus I'd get a kick if Jay and Alan proved to be more popular than Barry and Hal.

I'm pretty excited to see where this series goes. Can't remember the last time I felt that way about a comic.
