> I took a look at that issue today to see what you were talking about. The issue does states something to the effect that Earth 2 vibrates at a slower rate so it's about 20 years behind Earth 1. Unfortunately, that doesn't really work. For it to be true, the JLA would have appreared 20 years before the JSA, WW II would have been in the 1960's on Earth 2 or the 1920's on Earth 1, etc.
It stated, "Twin earths ... twin galaxies ... twin realities -- occupying the same physical space, yet separated by a gulf more vast than mere distance! Each atom and electron, each proton and neutron, vibrates in harmony with eternal cosmic rhythm ... and, although the evolution of the twin universes is merely parallel, they vibrate differently! Thus, time is slower on Earth-Two ... and its inhabitants will reach mankind's ultimate destiny -- or ultimate doom -- twenty years later than the creatures of Earth-One ..."
It said nothing about World War II or the Justice League in that description, it said the "inhabitants" of Earth-Two AGE slower than those of Earth-One.
That was a really good exlaination, and I wish they would use it for the new Earth 2.
