Flash of Two Worlds (Again)

Remember when I used to post ______ of Two Worlds every Thursday? Well, I do, and sometimes I come across an image that pays tribute to the original Flash of Two Worlds cover that I need to showcase on the blog (need to collect them all!). Here's the splash page to Justice League of America #219 (Oct. 1983), and wouldn't you know it, it stars the usual suspects:
Yep, there are still two worlds at this point, and I think this was to be the Crisis (as all JLA/JSA crossovers were) that brought us the convoluted tale of how the two Black Canaries could be mother and daughter despite coming from different Earths.

It made a third universe, Earth-Prime where WE live, scream.

This was the crossover that established that the 2 Black Canaries were seperate characters at all, actually. She'd spent over a decade being the same character. The fact that Roy Thomas decided that it was too creepy that she went for Green Arrow a few days after her husband died, yet thought saddling Dinah with memories of her mom's sex life with her dad still amazes me.

This was actually the crossover that established that there WERE two Black Canaries... before this, they'd been the same character. I'm still amazed that Roy Thomas decided that it was too odd for her to go for Green Arrow within days of her husband's death, but decided that inflicting Dinah with full memories of her mom's sex life with her father was perfectly normal.

Ah, Barry Allen. To quote Chris Sims, not even the third-best Flash.

Hawkman: Gross!

Liam: Harsh!

Well, if we're going to rank them:

1. Animated Justice League Wally West
2. Post-crisis Wally West
3. Jay Garrick
4. Max Mercury
5. Bart Allen (as Flash. As Impulse he's much higher)
6. Flash Gordon


32. Barry Allen.

(Don't make me rank the Grean Lanterns. Hal Jordon does even worse, despite being slightly more interesting than Barry.)
