I’m catching up on older issues before Crisis on Infinite Earths and since I got the late 50s I started to read this series which takes places around that time period but reading the grim article from Iris about registering vigilantes and the death of Hour Man I wonder how much it really fits canonically. Is it all suppose to take place on Earth-1 or 2?
It is not canon at all
It is set in the fifties
Superman Batman.and Wonder Woman.are the original Golden Age versions
While the Silver Age is just starting
We see the origins of Jonn Jonzz and Hal Jordan and early Barry Allen
Ray Palmer has not become the Atom yet
Nor is Larry Trainer yet Negative Man.
Green Arrow Adam Strange the Blackhawks and the Challengers of the Unknown exist but Aquaman is unknown to the world
Last event in book is JLA versus Starro
This is neither Earth 1 or 2.
From what I understand of the book, It acts as a sort of bridge between 40’s/50’s comics into the Silver Age of comics (1955-1973)
And to answer your question about it taking place on another earth
Thanks! Would you say it’s still a viable read to get myself more familiarized with the characters?
It is one of my favorite stories
Jonn Jonzz and Hal Jordan are great in it.
Some don’t like issue one because it is a war comic with dinosaurs
If so, go to issue 2
There is also a one shot that is very good.
HBO Max has the video adaptation
Which leaves out a lot
But is very good
