| > As much as I like the Infinitors, I think ultimately, they were a mistake as it draws attention to the JSA ages. The JSA are linked to WWII and this anchors the kids as well. The dates the JSA had kids would have to be getting pushed further and further back. Unless a Roy Thomas comes along and says someone kidnapped the kids and they were trapped in suspended animation for X-number of years until "recently" restored.|
But that is the beauty of having multiple Earths. "Now" on Earth-2 doesn't have to be "now". "Now" could still be the 1980's. This is a different Earth and as long as they don't make references to current events or dates it will just be a matter of Earth-2 evolving differently than New Earth, Earth-1 or whatever we want to call it.

Hmm, had forgotten about that. Well, no matter what he would still be old enough for his and Helena not to have been "raised" by Bruce at the same time making Helena's love for Robin less of a problem.
I don't remember where exactly, but didn't she always sort of consider him to be an "Uncle" of sorts? But then agani, if memory serves, go back thru the pages of th eoriginal Crisis, almost every panel of them shown, they're holding on to each other. OK, admittedly, with her dad dead, she'd pull close to Dick, but I remember even back then thinking this is a little much regardless of the stress. So even though it may seem creepy (and it does) the seeds could have been planted as far back as that.
