    Wait…why is JLA/WildCATS in this one? Didn’t it take place between JLA #4 and #5?

      Maybe they weren’t planning on including it in the series originally, but changed their minds and decided to toss it in here? (As a side note, I just looked up the cover gallery for JLA on I’d forgotten how early the Electric Superman stuff was in that series.)

    Anyone see the last page of the Animal Man book? Whole different Flash there. (it takes place in the “near future”)
