    Thank you so much! I knew I remembered it, but I could not get the details to surface! And I had it conflated with Marvel's The Twelve, too.

    You know, I believe that was the Marvel story I was thinking of. Thank you. But I still think there was a different story - possibly by a different publisher - about a bunch of superheroes trapped...

    Thank you for the kind words.

    But no, that's not the Marvel series I was looking for. It was about a bunch of superheroes who were literally trapped in a magic urn, then released in the current...

    Of course, there is one more way to handle the JSA/II problem, which DC has sort of used before. The JSA starts in WW II, many survive, their kids get started as Infinity, Inc. around 1970.

    I know which answer I'd like to see: The JSA exist in a timeline of their own. Call it Earth-2. They started there during WW II, and now it's it in the 1960's or 1970's there, and their kids are in...
