Earth-2 in the DCnU

Word is spreading that the Justice Society of America will make a comeback as part of the new DC after all, albeit on a restored Earth-2.

On the down  side, with all the changes occurring in the mainstream DC Universe (Earth-0), there might be similar alterations made to the Golden Age heroes and their progeny. We might not even recognize some of our favourite heroes.

Personally, Id like to see a two-pronged approach: the All-Star Squadron during the war years and the Justice Society in the modern age. That way we could see the older heroes in their prime (and hopefully the way we’re used to seeing them) and follow the next generation, too (where theres more room for change).

Whatever my hopes, Im sure there will be upsets. Some characters will change. Some will die. New ones will be introduced. The status quo wont hold.

But I still have higher hopes for Earth-2 than for most other elements of DCnU. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
