recently posted about an interesting story beat that showed up in JSA All-stars #17 so I decided to grab the issue to see more.

So here's some more story, rather interesting story at that....

 

A very Starman-esque story beat there ala what Jack and Mist were like. 

The Prince, whose narrating this, tells of how the heroes banded around Regal. The group that started as the Justice Society expanded and later became the Justice Guild of Earth. "We didn't just keep the world safe as your heroes do we kept the world wonderful."

 

An interesting story to be sure. But some of the things that really caught my eye was the odd fact that Wonderwoman, Superman and Batman were both shown as members of the Justice Society here. It made me consider this world Prince was from might be an altered version of the Pre-Crisis Earth 2, I sort of considered that a possibility as their was also a brown haired Green Arrow in a splash page showing Regal and the Justice Guild (I mention that since the E-2 Green Arrow was retconned during COIE as having brown hair as opposed to the E-1 Green Arrows blond hair to differentiate the two). Of course they also included Superboy (Conner) and Supergirl as members of the Justice Guild alongside Powergirl and the other Justice Guild Members so while it's a very Earth-2 ish look to it there are a bunch of differences that make it also seem like the modern day DCU. I suppose it could still be said to be an altered E-2 (particularly given that Regal and his Guild apparently stopped the COIE)  but those are some rather big changes there.

It almost looks like he's wearing a pencil skirt in the third panel. Looks pretty good on him. I know its pants, but I like the skirt look, like a business savvy Herc.

Heh! I stared for at least 30 seconds, I don't know it's pants. Jay has pants, Clark has pants, Alan probably has pants. It will have to be proven to me with more scans that Regal is wearing more than one pant. :)

Well, now that you mention it -- it does look like a skirt. And he does look pretty in it!
