The new Earth-2

So let me see if I have this right...

http://www.washingtonheightswarlord....a020-2627a.jpg

Earth-2 is back, and is exactly the same as it was pre-Crisis. The people who survived its destruction in the first place -- the late Kal-L, the late Lois, the original Flash, the original Green Lantern and Power Girl -- are basically leftover duplicates from its first incarnation.

We know that Earth-2's Alan Scott died sometime. But are there now two Jay Garricks?

And I don't even want to touch the relationship of orphan Powergirl to Supergirl.

I wouldn't even bother trying to make sense of it - Wildcat also remembers earth-2 (or at least did during the events of infinite crisis).

Re: The new Earth-2

There is an Earth-2 now, outside of the 52 Multiverse, but where and how it came from hasn't been explained in Justice Society yet.

Time, however, has slowed significantly there; when Gog sent "our" Power Girl there, the year on Earth-2 was probably about 1988 at most. The Justice Society and Infinity Inc. have merged to become one group, the Justice Society Infinity.

There's an interesting character development on Earth-2 that's revealed in JSA Annual #1 that makes a lot of sense, if you're familiar with Earth-2 continuity.

For the record, Jerry Ordway draws a fantastic Helena Wayne.

Just as Legion of Three Worlds features an adult Legion that never went through Crisis (so they didn't become Giffen's "Five Years Later" Legion), Justice Society showed us an Earth-2 that likewise never went through Crisis. It started... but something happened and interrupted it.

Right; forgot him. And for that matter Dr. Mid-Nite and so many other JSAers.
That's why I just don't even know how to approach the bizarre irony of these two pages:

I thought it was about the TV show too, because lets face it, Earth two came back during infinite vrisis which was around three years ago... The little blonde girl form Earth two died a couple years back from some horrible disease. It's all detailed on her imdb listing.

Re: The new Earth-2

It's shit.

so much doesn't happen treally slowly.

A blind man can figure out what these peoples endgames are in the 7 or so stories they're telling across the DCU but the writers have no sense of pacing, since they've never hads to write anything so huge so quickly, that they blow their telegraphed loads too early but just when you think that it's all over they have to add four giant gized issues and call it "52 presents WWIV" because they screwed their pacing the other way too and ran out of pages at the end because they had too much story to tell.

The art is inconstant and terrible at the best of times and... It was a painful experience handing out 7 doallrs a week for this dross.

Nor did I (I did skim a little). I'm getting my info (and those captures) from the latest issues of Justice Society.
