Well, that'd be pretty crappy as that would pretty much invalidate all of Geoff Johns' series and only AGAIN needlessly complicates the Hawkman history. You'd think they would have learned their lesson the first time around.
The thing is, there was really no reason to say that the Egyptian Price Carter thought he was never existed...unless, of course, they're saying that the Golden Age Hawkman was never really a part of New Earth.
There's mention of realities from various parallel earths being grafted onto Katar, again indicating that he's remembering events from things which didn't happen on New Earth.
