Agreed, Freedom Fighters did come from Earth 2, as established by Roy Thomas in All Star Squadron.  This plan to have them migrate to Earth X was speeded up, wasn't it, to coincide with the end of Earth 2 during the first Crisis.

I think it's all moot, in that Barry's not back, we just know he didn't die.  Yes, he could be brought back but I don't think DC's doing this.  Looks like the rumor of Bart becoming the Flash is correct.  Also, since I don't believe for a second that Earth 2 is staying around, then the reason for killing the Freedom Fighters isn't valid anyway.

I suspect that the Freedom Fighters were killed for the same reason why the minor, unused Titans were killed.  DC wanted to convince people that something is actually happening and what better way than to kill off characters that they weren't using anyway?  I do think that the Freedom Fighters had more potential than the slaughtered Titans, however.  But DC has always had a tendency to throw out the baby with the bathwater.

Quote from: "TELLE"

The most (and best) character development in the Freedom Fighters took place in one panel, when Doll Man confessed his love for Phantom Lady moments before Mxy and Batmite destroyed their universe in World's Funnest.   Best multi-universe cross-over and destruction ever!  The best drawn, as well.



You mean this?   :wink:

Now if only Mxy and Bat-Mite can fix the "Infinite Crisis" mess as easily as they restored the Multiverse in "World's Funniest"...  Sad

Wait, didn't Mxy just DIE in an IC tie-in story?   :shock:
