Im gonna say that the lost teen titans issue is the explanation of what happened to JFK.
Superman would know about JFK being in space the whole time anyways (because he's superman)

One-term president? Maybe he simply got found out. He was highly corrupt, but people see what they want to see. If the American public decide to have a fairy tale view of someone and his family, they will.

I agree JFK was no prize here on Earth-Prime, but we're talking about the idealized version of JFK from Earth-One, the president Superman took into his confidence like none before or after and made a personal friend and member of the "Superman family," appearing in Action, Superman, Supergirl and Bizarro stories (and probably more) and treated as a celebrity on par with Mickey Mantle, Marilyn Monroe and arguably the most revered celebrity in all of Silver Age DC, Jerry Lewis.

India's saying that for *that* guy to get killed would be as impossible as Jimmy Olsen or Perry White getting killed.  More than that, it would represent a tear in fabric of Silver Age reality, a leg without which the table cannot stand.

Not that I agree, necessarily, but that seems to be where he's going.  Certainly they stuck their necks out making JFK so prominent in the books, and I notice it's not a mistake they were quick to repeat.  Curiously, after we suffered through the Crisis, ostensibly (at least in part) to remove some of the confusion generated by 5 decades of too-easily dated stories (the JSA meeting FDR and yet still looking young-ish in the 70s, etc), the first thing DC did right out of the gate was put Ronald Reagan in "Legends."  Huh?!?!

Interestingly, after Reagan, we got a "President Forrest" (bigger version of "Bush"?) and then...well, after that I kind of dropped out.  But anyway DC has a very spotty record when it comes to presidents, inventing some and sticking to "reality" for others.  In JFK's case, it was a little of both.

Yes exactly. That's precisely what I would have said. We're talking here about the comic book version of JFK.

He might have lived, but his animated counterpart was killed by a magic bullet, forged by Illuminati mystics to prevent the public from learning the truth.

I'd forgotten all about that story, I'll have to dig mine out for a re-read (along with my old jerry lewis comics...)

Oddly enough Stephen Kings newest novel deals with time travel and the JFK assassination...

On another note, I didn't know this site had come back to life. I stumbled on the link over at the CBR boards.

Its great to be here!

Yes Mr. Shadowy was the one who asked Superman not to travel through time under his own power, setting up the events for "The Immortal Superman."

Is it too late to impeach him?
