Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

I was trapped in town a few weeks ago, I had 5 hours to kill, so a trundled into the public library and devoured 5 or 6 trade paperbacks, a lot of which were legion related stuff where I was comparing the Johns stuff to the Levitz, but here's the cool thing...

The night before I had read the (first)Crisis Cosmic Boy crossover by Levitz from 1986 where Cosmic boy is trapped in the present as everything is switching form silver age to postcrisis... It was weird seeing how Levitz had changed or stayed the same, but what was really weird was how quickly they managed to include the Challenger Accident into the story to as the pinacle landmark to tell cosmic boy that he was in an alternate timeline, spookily easily the 911 of the 20th century.
