'Once GENERATIONS is presented as any kind of coherent "universe" or "ElseWorld", it completely falls apart. It's like looking behind the curtain and finding out who Oz really is. The "hypertime" inclusion springs directly from Alan Moore's infamous "but aren't they all" line, in reference to "imaginary stories". For some reason that became a battle cry for FAR too many over-aged, ennui-engorged "fans", people who simply could not accept the old stories for what they were -- or GENERATIONS for what it was meant to be. Sigh.' - John Byrne

Okay that conceit makes sense for the first two Generations series which take place mostly in the past, but how does it work at all for this one which mostly takes place in the future?

Gotcha. But we already seem to be well away from that, because (to be very very very optimistic) we don't know what comics will be like in the 27th century. Seems like Byrne crossed that line as soon as he skipped ahead of actual history...
