'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

For all Byrne's... everything, he's still got good, solid storytelling instincts. Lara's turn here is logical and sobering.

A lot of authors have had to deal with their work being interpreted in ways they don't like, so I can relate when Byrne talks about that. But I'm not really sure what he means by "Once GENERATIONS is presented as any kind of coherent 'universe' or 'ElseWorld,' it completely falls apart." Does... does that mean it's not a coherent story? Are these just a series of non sequiturs? "I was aiming for incoherence?" What?

Aside from cause and effect, I don't get the idea of launching multiple attacks further back in time. If the point is to hit them before they build up adequate defenses, then why not just take your whole fleet to that point?

In the group shot with Wonder Woman in the center, who is the character flying above the Green Lantern?
