Letters Column: The JLA Mail Room

In a kind of sequel to the earlier Flash (I) and Flash (II) team-ups in The Flash, vol. 1, various criminals-- including "Flash of Two Worlds" star, The Fiddler--capture both Flashes so that they alone can control travel between the two Earths.

By exchanging places with each other, each Earth's Crime Champions hope to gain the tactical advantage of surprise over their opposite number's super group. They appear to be on the verge of succeeding.

Unfortunately for them, the JLA and JSA learn of each other's existence, and they begin to hatch a plan to pull the same sort of switcheroo on their respective Crime Champions. Key to the success of this mission is the final rescue of the two Flashes. With the outcome still very much in doubt, both Green Lanterns head off for the "transition zone" between the two Earths to free the Flashes.

Having teased for the better part of five years, DC finally, totally, and irrevocably declared with this issue, "Earth 2 is open for business". Until this point, the "other Earth" had gone un-named, and was the exclusive playground of The Flash (I and II). Now, though, DC had their revitalized JSA (brought back together in The Flash #137, joining en masse with the JLA for the first of a two-decades-long tradition of team-ups.
