On Earth-Two, a mother and daughter named Black Canary each proved to be a mirror image of the other, much as would the Supermen or Batmen or Wonder Women of their world and that of Earth-One. Only they weren't counterparts, as their true cosmic twins of that parallel planet were themselves beautiful birds knows as Lady Blackhawk and Silver Swan. Tragedy was the eventuality each of this fabulous foursome. The first to appear on Earth-One was Zinda Blake, who had aspired to join the Blackhawk Squadron as their first female member, only to be stuck with the status as an honorary member and then their brainwashed adversary. When she regained her sanity as a heroine once more, she was caught within the mist of time, disappearing in November 1968 in the Zero Hour event. Shortly thereafter, in August 1969, her twin the elder Black Canary perished defending Earth-Two from the evil Aquarius.
However, in a last act of desperation, the dying heroine passed along her memories to her long-lost comatose daughter, herself stranded in the adjacent Thunderbolt Dimension for decades. Becoming the second Black Canary and believing herself to be her mother, she joined the Justice League as she traveled to their universe, one that no longer had her mother's twin Zinda. And for scant years, the Canary would carve out her own life in costume and as the civilian Dinah Lance. Eventually, she would be motivated to repeatedly travel to her native Earth-Two to rejoin her (actually her mom's) former compatriots of the Justice Society of America. Around the time of one such occasion, the void she left behind on Earth-One was filled by that of Helen Alexandros, an aspiring ballerina stymied from living her dream due to her unattactive appearence. When she was granted beauty, along with a sonic cry that echoed Dinah's Canary Cry, Helen became one of Wonder Woman's most dangerous enemies, the Silver Swan! Only she failed twice to defeat her Amazonian adversary, and so lost her power. While fellow foe Doctor Psycho granted her superpowers once more, it was the Swan's vanity that led to her demise... leaving a void once more filled by her doppleganger, the second Black Canary.
And the cosmic balance was once more restored, as always it is through triumph or tragedy...

The subtle differences between counterparts sometimes come down to the decisions they make in their lives, which can cause them to diverge from one another in critical areas. Such was the case with two men named Larry Lance. The older version, on Earth-Two, was a scrappy private detective of Park City who met and fell in love with Dinah Drake. Dinah, as the Black Canary, aided the initially annoying Lance on his various cases... and she would eventually find that this was the man that completed her. After decades side-by-side as a happily married couple, even after the seeming death of their infant daughter, they finally found tragedy end their romance... as they fought alongside the Justice Society to save their world. At the cost of their very lives.
Yet it was their daughter, who had been kept asleep in the Thunderbolt Dimension due to her chaotic canary cry, was awaken when she was given her mother's memories. And it was those memories which caused her to believe she was the elder Dinah, and hence sought out Larry's doppleganger when she joined the Justice League on Earth-One. However, she was not the same as her mother, nor was this Lance the same as her father, for his career as a private investigator was a cover for his crooked capers as the crime-lord known as the Collector. Once Dinah learned of Lance's evil deeds as a kidnapper and extortioner, he was caught in the clutches of Black Canary and the Batman, which led to his demise at his own underhanded hands.
Still, the memory of the good Larry outweighed that of the evil Lance in Dinah's mind.

Throughout their storied careers, both of today's contenders had dozens of members within their membership rolls. In fact, officially there were 22 on each team, with 2 more associates and a remaining ally for each. So how would these twin teams stack up versus one another, were they to come to a confrontation of some cosmic crisis, as was their tendancy? Well, first we would factor out the counterparts, as both Batmen would counteract one another, as would the Hawkmen, Wonder Women and each Flash. This would be due to their similar power levels, attributes and abilities. The League's Superman would overwhelm the Society's given his physical makeup, and the Society's Green Lantern seemed to have more limitation on his power ring than that of the League's. However, the Society's Atom has atomic abilities that are not dependent on a device as are the League's Atom with his white dwarf star belt, and hence provide him an edge.
Considering the remaining founding members on each team, the Society's Spectre would easily overmatch the League's Martian Manhunter, while the Spectre's comrade Hourman would find his hour-of-power limitation matched by that of the Martian's ally Aquaman, who could only be on land for an hour before weakening himself. The Society's Sandman would be overwhelmed with by hononary Leaguer Sandman's dream dimension physique. The remaining founding father of the Society, Doctor Fate would find his abilities on equal footing to that of honorary Leaguer, the Phantom Stranger. As for the honorary sidekicks, Snapper Carr and Edmund Blake, both lads had a tenacity to find himself in trouble yet also the ability to aid both self and their superfriends. A draw.
The League's Green Arrow and the Society's Doctor Mid-Nite would have an epic encounter, which may tip in the Doctor's favor should he blind his opponent who is dependent on visual line-of-sight to send forth his arrows. Both the Leaguer Zatanna and the Socialite Johnny Thunder have vast abilities, each dependent on actually uttering these to be efficient, although Zatanna's intellect (and Johnny's lack thereof) tips this in her favor. Non-Socialite Thunderbolt matches honorary Leaguer, Metamorpho, as far as physical adaptability, with the latter having greater power yet dependent on his master Johnny, although T-Bolt would figure some creative means to work within his sire's orders to defeat his competition. Socialite Starman possesses both the intellect and aweseome cosmic rod which more than matched honorary Leaguer Adam Strange's ray gun and wisdom. The mother and daughter duo of the same name would each match the other well with the Society's Black Canary possessing gas pellets and the League's Black Canary canary cry, giving the Leaguer the edge. Since the Red Tornado (aka Tornado Champion) is the same individual on boths Earth-One and Earth-Two, he is factored out of this competition, although the original Red Tornado...an arguably honorary Socialite...may find defeat very quickly at the hands of the League's long-suffering applicant Hawkgirl, given the Winged Warrior's trained skills. Another honorary Leaguer Sargon would also, like the second Red Tornado, not qualify in this competition as he worked for both teams. The Society's Wildcat would outmanuever the counterpart of his pal, Stretch, the League's Elongated Man for awhile, although the latter has a gingold-enhanced physique that would outlast the former's skills. Lastly, Socialite Mister Terrific's scientific accumen would more than match that of Firestorm's alter ego Professor Martin Stein, although Terrific couldn't employee that knowledge quickly enough to vanquish the League's Nuclear Man.
During their next generation of recruits, the League and Society each took in four younger heroes into their ranks. Socialite Robin was more than a match for the vibration-emitting Leaguer known as Vibe, whose dance moves and superpower would be out-manuevered by their acrobatic intellect of the ex-Boy Wonder. Likewise, the Kryptonian might of the Society's Power Girl would be more than the animal-adapting abilties of the League's Vixen could handle. And while the Leaguer known as Steel would physically dominate similarly-garbed Star-Spangled Kid, the Kid had more physical training coupled with his cosmic-converter belt which more than made up for his lack of Steel's metallic skeleton. As for the fourth latecomers, the League's Gypsy would find her camouflage not enough to circumvent the deductive detective known as the Society's Huntress.
The final tally? With 24 matchups and 2 abstentions, we have 7 draws, 8 wins by the League and 9 wins by the Society.

When Supergirl first arrived from her extinguished home of Argo City, her body quickly acclimated to the yellow solar energy and reduced gravity of Earth-One, producing within her power levels approaching those of her cousin Kal-El. Simaltaneously but a universe away, her counterpart Power Girl had herself entered Earth-Two's atmosphere following her disembarking of her celestrial home, the Symbioship, to find herself having possessed an above average physique, though her powers would develop overtime as had her cousin Kal-L. Why the difference? Unlike those residing on Krypton-One, the residents of Krypton-Two had superstrong abilities allowing them to adapt to the crushing graviational pull of their world, although conversely on Earth-Two they were limited by that phyiscal manifestation of their adaptation. Meanwhile, the Kryptonians who lived on Earth-One could absorb stellar radiation which allowed their abilities to exceed those of their dopplegangers.
So when Power Girl first appeared, her superstrength and speed didn't approach those of Supergirl, and unlike her cosmic twin she couldn't fly, being confinded to leaping great distances. Eventually, Power Girl would develop comparable levels to Supergirl, although she like Kal-L could not match Kal-El and Kara in a one-on-one confrontation. Unless, of course, it was through skill and particularly tenacity, which Power Girl would possess in abundance over Supergirl given her willpower and longer training period under the tutelage of her cousin.
In the end, though, this confrontation would come down to who was more "super", and we know whom that would be.

If they were to confront one another, in a timeline wherein their world's still exist as separate and distinct after the Crisis on Infinite Earths, how would these counterparts stack up if pitted against one another. Both were genius-level scientists, with Danton Black turning towards costumed criminality while Rex Tyler became a costumed crusader for justice. Each has the strength of multiple men, with various minature versions of themselves which they employee on their adventures, and wicked fashion sense. Considering Danton as Multiplex has nuclear powered might while Tyler as Hourman gained his ability on a chemical Miraclo pill, it would seem that the radioactivity that Danton would emit would irradiate and thus eliminate the effectiveness of Tyler's pill.
In fact, the opposite would probably be true, as Hourman's abilities caused him to act in a hightened and irritable state when his new and improved Miraclo was used during the silver age when exposed to the atomic-like bioproduct emitted from his partner Doctor Fate's own energies. Hence, there would be a significant power boost which would help Tyler match Multiplex's seemingly superior superstrength, much as it had with Doctor Fate's own unearthly might. And given his significantly lengthier career, Hourman would best Multiplex in battle given his extensive training. However, the mini-Multiplex's may well overwhelm Hourman's Minute Men, who themselves gain only short lived powers compared to the Man of the Hour's sidekicks. Still, considering that the clones are dependent on the mental state of their master, these Multiplexes could well be vanquished by the Minute Men if Tyler defeats Danton quickly. Which, we surmise, is what would occur.

While the teamups of headliner heroes such as the Justice League in the silver age and, prior to that, the Justice Society in the golden age, were fairly common... minor mystery men generally kept within their corners of comicbook continuities. Partly this was due to their lack of notoriety, and popularity. However, on occasion, these did occur with startling results.
There was the time when the criminal League of Challenger-Haters stalked the vacationing objects of their vitriol. And without their gadgets, the Challengers of the Unknown may have been helpless versus their inhuman opponents, were it not for the Doom Patrol who leant a hand. Elasti-Girl vs Multi-Woman... Kra versus Robotman. And, of course, the more modest masked men Star-Spangled Kid and Stripesy crossed paths... not to mention almost running into each other.. with the Dynamic Duo in pursuit of the Joker. Good times.

Amidst the myriad of superhuman organizations of parallel planets Earths One and Two, their lasting legacies are borne out in their histories. Consider, for example, two doomed patrols of each world. On Earth-One, the quartet of Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl and their bearded benefactor the Chief operated over the course of 62 adventures. During this period, they mainly faced their arch foes the Brotherhood of Evil and other obscure opponents like the Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man. Then they expired in battle.... Well all save Robotman who would be there for a new generation of heroes to take up the manntle... For another 12 cases themselves!
Their counterparts Fred, Pedro, and Slim by way of comparison had 77 adventures themselves, wherein they face off usually against more pedestrian foes. Even when they were accompanied by Norah Blaine and their lives got more interesting, their cases did not. And like their dopplegangers, they generally kept to the,selves and didn't interact with their fellow superheroes. Of course, at Elasti-Girl's wedding to Mento, several superheroes attended... And the Flash added her team once when Negative Man was under the weather. Similarly, Johnny Thunder once ran into Slim, Pedro and Fred. Still, these Patrols had their own niches in their own respective universes, which led to their disappearances.

In 1953, over eleven years since her All-Star Squadron allies first encountered the hero-less Earth-X and then the Marvel Family's Earth-S, eight years after the Amazing Amazon last met her Earth-One counterpart, Wonder Woman, once finally herself traveled to a parallel world. Here, on Earth-59, she met her counterpart there named Tara Terruna who was princess of that planet's prominent country, a nation now controlled by Tara's arch-enemy Duke Dazam. The Duke was himself the terrible twin of Earth-Two's Duke of Deception who had plagued Wonder Woman for years. The dynamic duo of daring damsels dispatched this devious deviant decisely, at which point our heroine returned to her own world... this time remembering an encounter with her identical twin... since the last two times she met another like her from a parallel planet those memories were wiped from her. And so, in the Multiverse, somewhere Tara Terruna still rightfully reign.

While Rainbow Raider and the Shade had several similarities, being that they were both colorful foes... in more ways than one... these rogues also had a few differences leaving them each mimicing other villains of the others' world. For instance, Raider's optical weaponry and thirst for vengeance was reflected in the optometrist turned oppressive opponent of Earth-Two's Hawkman, the Monocle, who also caused his globe's Flash a trial or two through the years. And Earth-One's Mirror Master bent light so that he could enter other dimensions as well as create solid creations from enengy, much as the Shade had done in his own universe. Hence, elements of each problematic pair offset those missing from the other pair of powerful players.

These twin masters of light had discovered a curious side-effect to their dappling in the fields of chromatic and monochromatic marvels, that is to say their control over colors and darkness, that said energies provided gateways into parallel dimensions. Rainbow Raider used his techniques to flood his dimension in black-and-white while releasing the colors in Central City into Earth-Two's Keystone City. What he failed to anticipate in his endeavor was that he would have an equally evil counterpart in the Shade, who sought out the means to restore balance to his own world so that he may wield darkness once more, and so traveled to Earth-One. This was nothing new, he had done so years earlier when he unleashed shadow beasts on Central City, plundering that Flash's town while taunting his own Flash with his ill-gotten gains that were duplicates of objects in his own world. On this case, however, the Shade teamed up with Earth-One's Flash to turn the tides versus his counterpart, leading to the Rainbow Raider's defeat. Whether the Raider would later discover that his own terrible twin was the cause of his plan coming unraveled is unknown. However, that each man posed tremendous threats to humanity in general and a pair of Flashs in particular is without question.

Very rarely, indeed, have crooked counterparts teamed up to hatch some nefarious schemes. This would be one of those instances, when Earth-One's Minister Blizzard recruited the dopplegangers of his world's Captain Cold and Earth-Two's Icicle (the Minister's counterpart would no doubt be several years older than him at this point and presumably in retirement). Remarkably similar to Icicle's earlier incursion on his own world's Perumbia (Peru) decades earlier, this time he along with his cronies capture by cold cunning the country of Equador. In the interim, they proceeded to steal valuable gems there, until the Justice League tracked them down and discovered the Shadow-Thief as the master architect behind this sinister scheme. His goal? To transform his planet through an artificially induced ice-age, under the guise that his three confederates were responsible for this transgression.
Thankfully, the Phantom Stranger intervened and defeated the Thief by deactivating his dimensiometer, which had caused the chatastrophic conditions in South America which would've plunged the entire world into unlivable conditions. As for Cold and Icicle, they would not see each other until the Crisis on Infinite Earths, which claimed the life of Icicle and Cold's ally Mirror Master.

The speed of sound is 343.053 meters per second. The speed of light is 299.792.458 meters per second. In either instance, when faced with furious foes controlling sight and sound, few can measure up to the task. The Scarlet Speedsters are those few, which is why repeatedly they have been drawn into conflict with these mirror marauding menaces. For Barry "Flash" Allen, the two masters of sight and sound are the Rainbow Raider and Pied Piper, while for Jay "Flash" Garrick, those two are the Shade and the Fiddler. While the Piper and Fiddler were more frequent foes of the Flashs, the Raider and Shade made their own impact and hedged their way into the Flashs' Rogues Gallery over time. These dasteredly deviants used advanced technology more so than most of their contemporaries in Central and Keystone City, yet this still wasn't enough to vanquish the Fastest Men Alive! Interestingly, two of these terrible twins would cause one Flash considerable tribulations, although not while working together but on opposite sides. This we'll learn later...

A host of threats caused the Emerald Crusaders of Earths One and Two their share of grief. However, none came so close to breaking them as had this bare of alien adversaries, Sinestro and Wotan. The origin of Sinestro, as a former Green Lantern himself before turning evil, was well known. What isn't known is how Wotan got his start, only that he was an age-old enemy of Doctor Fate's predecessor, Nabu. While each man was a master schemer, both employed various weaponry in order to vanquish all before them... all save for the heroes who opposed them. While Wotan was a prepetual foe of Fate, twice he clashed with Alan "Green Lantern" Scott, both times leading to tragedy... as first his malevolent influence caused a young lad to perish whom Alan failed to save, and later he caused the Lantern and his Justice Society allies to fall into a coma during Pearl Harbor itself. Both experiences shaped Scott into the legend he would become. As for Hal and Sinestro, the various clashes one-on-one, with the Green Lantern Corps aiding Jordan as well as when the villain tormented the Lantern's Justice League teammate all unrattled the status quo. Indeed Sinestro's tenacity and devious devices was virtually unmatched. Save for his counterpart, of course.
Friday, June 22, 2012
Without a doubt the dual dopplegangers who were the most in sync were the Green Lanterns, which is logical since up to this point the two of them worked together on four occasions as well as a couple missions together alongside the League and Society. Given their similar abilities derived from their power rings as well as fearless dispositions and creative skills, this pair of Emerald Crusaders were able to solve various problems side-by-side. Consider they vanquished Krona, Prince Peril, Sinestro, Captain Challenge and Aquarius... some of these world-class threats to humanity. And on this occasion, it was Solomon Grundy's turn to feel the wraith of Earth-One's Hal Jordan and Earth-Two's Alan Scott, who combined not only defeated Solomon Grundy but kept him prisoner of Suicide Swamp from whence he came. Take that Scarlet Speedsters (on this case, Barry "Flash" Allen was subdued by Teppy the space-pooch and hence unable to aid his twin Jay "Flash" Garrick... which had he been able to may have well aided Jay in outshining the Lanterns on this occasion).
Thursday, June 21, 2012
Of all the members of the Justice League and Justice Society, the most overlooked may well be the Mighty Mites... the Atoms. Ray Palmer and Al Pratt were both power players, only a much smaller scale than their peers. Not just in their size but in their notoriety, these twin tots were still tremendous teammates. And yet they were among the most different, due to the nature of their abilities, with Ray-Atom able to shrink and juggle his weight while Al-Atom had superstrength. In this sequence, each Mite tackles the alien animal Teppy, with Al using his might to little success while Ray uses his size as but a distraction. Unlike other cases, such as when the joined forces to defeat the Thinker and troubleshoot troublesome technology in their twin towns, on this adventure they depended of their allies to turn the tides from tragedy to triumph. Still, they at least provided some moral support and showed by their example how conviction and courage are valuable assets to have and assets that the League and Society highly valued in them.

The Hawkmen of parallel planets had many fine attributes in common, yet one annoying attitude they shared was a bit of a patronizing demeanor towards those whom they felt superior to... which in this instance would be another pair of bird boys, the Robins of Earths One and Two. When the Justice League surveyed the damage caused by the alien animal known as Teppy, they encountered the Teen Titan Robin whom Hawkman enlisted in a rather brazen way. On Earth-Two, it was Teppy's owner A-Ryn who was the threat which the Justice Society was there to capture, and that Hawkman was actually oblivious to the fact that his own world's Robin... who was on the scene... had actually been a member of his team for a shortwhile!
Tuesday, June 19, 2012
While they may have met off-panel prior to this case, it was while battling A-Ryn the alien and his psychotic caretakers Solomon Grundy that the Hawkmen finally got to teamup Hawkmano-y-Hawkmano. And boy, was it a flop, judging by how quickly they were dispatched by both baddies. The older seasoned Carter Hall had decades of experience to impart to the younger Katar Hol, and still they both fell prey to misjudging Grundy's basic attacks of smash and more smash. Then, while seemingly cornering A-Ryn, they instead fell before the lad when the alien exerted his willpower on the stolen ring of Alan "Green Lantern" Scott. Earth-Two's Hawkmen had the added attribute as a leader, which he was throughout most of the Justice Society's history... his Earth-One counterpart was himself a law enforcement official on his native Thanagar which gave him an authority figure attitude much like his twin's background as a former prince. It would have been fascinating had these two met, along with their wives the Hawkgirls, on a separate case. Perhaps that occured in some future, as yet undocumented case, which will unfold at a later date. Regardless, there is one additional commonality between the Feathered Furies, something rather annoying to twin avian acrobats...
Monday, June 18, 2012
In previous matchups and meetups between the Justice League and Justice Society, there were generally random pairings of each team meshing together to face a common threat. Taking a que from their seventh case when the two Supermen met for the first time (while the Green Lanterns joined forces once more) and the eight case when some JSA members' defeat caused their JLA counterparts to also succumb to the same snares, their ninth teamup finally showcased power-pairings of five counterparts. While a sixth pairing, the Flash of two worlds, was nixed since Earth-One's Fastest Man Alive was quickly defeated, the former Boys Wonder known as Robin first met each other. Since we've considered those two on this case previously, lets consider how the other dual dopplegangers faired when facing the alien threats of A-Rym and his pet Teppy, later joined by Solomon Grundy himself!
This adventure provides a reminder of the repoir between the Flashs, Green Lanterns and Atoms who up to that point built friendships with one another, while glimpsing the budding relationship between the Supermen and quite frankly the only chance to see the Robins and Hawkmens together.
Saturday, June 16, 2012
Intrinsct to the nature of the Green Lanterns, as much as the power rings and power batteries, is their love for ladies. Carol Ferris appeared 126 times on the original Earth-One, and Molly Mayne appeared 30 times on the original Earth-Two. At times they were simply coworkers, other times love interests, and several times adversaries of Hal Jordan and Alan Scott. While there were other foes that better matched them blow-for-blow, and more interest girlfriends whom they previously loved, it was these two lasses that endured for decades and helped define the Emerald Crusaders of their twin worlds. Now, as over the past couple of decades, new universes have sprung up to replace the old ones. On these worlds, other Hals and Alans have appeared and attempted the assume the mantle of their forebearers. Buyer Beware! Accept no imitations. The originals still live, and set the standard, on worlds far separated from Nu-Earth and Earth-LGBT.
Friday, June 15, 2012
In the end, it would be Ms. Ferris and Ms. Mayne who would ensnare the heart of their Earth's Green Lantern, and even though in their costumed identities they caused their men a great deal of anguish, when they left behind their masks and their malevolent methods behind, Carol and Molly who that which completed their Emerald Crusaders also known as Hal and Alan. And keep the light within these lads burning brighter than any emerald energy from the cosmos ever could. Although the lives of these Power-ring Protectors would change dramatically after the Crisis on Infinite Earths, their feelings for these fabulous females would endure and still remains in a section of the Multiverse where the TRUE Hal Jordan and Alan Scott still reside, both as themselves and as the Green Lantern!
Thursday, June 14, 2012
After several years where Hal Jordan and Alan Scott worked alongside Carol Ferris and Molly Mayne, respectively, the secrets betwen them revealed a truth long concealed. Although Carol and Molly tormented Hal and Alan's Green Lantern alter ego as Star Sapphire and Harlequin, each lass an agent of adversary aliens, it was once they shed these lives as femme fatales that they saw standing before them their true loves. In the end, it wasn't cosmic powers that caused great attraction between them, but something more... something truely special...
Wednesday, June 13, 2012
The affairs of the heart were definitely not always easy for the Emerald Crusaders, as they often found themselves in conflict with the opposite sex who were usually drawn to their tremendous abilities and unsurmountable courage. Hal Jordan and Carol Ferris' alter egos frequently fought when the Star Sapphire controlled its owner. For Alan Scott, it seems on one occasion he encountered his own Star Sapphire although she didn't have any great effection toward her world's Lantern as had Ferris. Still, other femme fatales including the aforementioned Thorn and Harlequin would, in their other identities, captivate then crush the heart of Alan time and again.
Tuesday, June 12, 2012
Parting is such sweet sorrow, indeed, for the hope of a life time together was quickly dashed with the presence of the sinister Guy Gardner and Thorn, whose influence in the lives of Kari Limbo and Alyx Florin stood in the way of these gal's loves for twin Green Lanterns. Eventually, each Lantern would battle Guy and Thorn, and while Guy was redeemed during a Crisis thanks in part to Kari's long-lasting love for him, Alyx's life was redeemed when she gave it to save her love Alan from Thorn's attacks. While others would eventually be the true loves for Hal Jordan and Alan Scott, these women would show them the need to truly commit completely as had these lovely lasses.
Monday, June 11, 2012
Finding a deeper level of trust and contentment given their knowledge of the Green Lanterns' secret identities and dual lives, the mystery maidens of Kari Limbo and Alyx Florin soon after first proclaiming their affection for the Emerald Crusadcers agreed to wed Hal and Alan. Sadly, they soon after realized that they did not belong beside these brave men. Why? Kari, because her first love Guy Gardner still lived somewhere within the cosmos, and Alyx because her evil alias the Thorn still lived within her. Both Guy and Thorn would plague this pair of Power Ring Paladins, but it would be these lost loves that stung much deeper for them.
