Golden Age Splash

"Golden Age Splash" from DC Universe: Legacies #2 (DC, 2010) by Len Wein, Andy Kubert and Joe Kubert
Though Legacies had some good art, its retelling of DCU history, apparently the definitive post-Final Crisis one, had three major problems. First, its framing tale was entirely derivative of Busiek's Marvels. Second, this history would all come crashing to an end in the oncoming Flushpoint, a major tell-tale that the New52 wasn't quite as planned as some would like us to believe. Third, it was announced to come out side by side with a new series of Who's Who, and that never came. Can I hold it against Legacies? I've decided I can and will. But an ongoing Who's Who in the post-Final Crisis universe would have been a major pain for New52 architects...
