I might well say that's artistic /coloring error, it's a minor detail...

I don't think anyone thinks this is the original E-2. It's very very close and indeed very paradoxically so... the more you think about the implications you realise there must now be two Kal-L's. There was the original who dissapeared in the Crisis and now presumably there is a 'new' one for this new E-2. So which version died in Infinite Crisis?! How could you have two identical Kal-l's who presumably shared the exact same fate in the original Crisis... it just does not make sense.

If this earth we see in the book was the real Earth-2, there should be NO Spectre on it, since he left it in the 1960's (real world time) and he never returned. He remained on Earth-1.|
The more I think on it the more offensive it becomes - The Huntress has just had something of a personality transplant in much the same way Johns gave Kal-L one in IC.... and like his it's not a flattering one.
