Paul Kirk, Manhunter, Dreamer

"Paul Kirk, Manhunter, Dreamer" from The Golden Age #3 (DC, 1993) by James Robinson, Paul Smith and Richard Ori
This nightmare brought to you by The Golden Age, the book James Robinson used as a back door to his best remembered DC work, most prominently Starman, and today, Earth 2. Is Robinson the new Roy Thomas? The keeper of the flame for old characters (note also the various oners from 1st Issue Special showing up in his Superman work), though unlike Roy Thomas, he seems a little more willing to reinvent them as oppose to keep their legends as archival mint as possible. And do you have a preferred approach?
