The success of the series led to the launch of ComicBook/InfinityInc, whose characters appeared in the progenitor series thanks to time travel. James Robinson's ''Comicbook/{{Starman}}'' and Geoff Johns' ''ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica'', two of DC's current successes, owe as much inspiration to Thomas' ''All-Star Squadron'' as they do to the original 40s comics and the Levitz/Staton revitalization in the 70s.

A comic book series published by Creator/DCComics in UsefulNotes/{{the Bronze Age|OfComicBooks}} starting in 1981. Coming out after DC's parallel worlds had existed for a while, and written by the continuity-obsessed Roy Thomas, this series took place during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII on the parallel world of Earth-2, where DC's [[TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] characters were said to have existed.

The phrase "retroactive continuity" was used (attributed to a fan) in the letter column in issue #18, which soon became "{{Retcon}}". The series was heavily based around retcons in the positive sense--it often told stories that happened between issues of real [[TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] series, gave characters origins who never had them, and cleared up plot holes and dangling plots from decades ago. It generally avoided the "[[ReWrite everything you know is a lie]]" type of retcon, though there were some minor history changes. It also gave a decent explanation why the really powerful superheroes didn't invade the Axis powers to end the war overnight: Hitler had the mystic SpearOfDestiny in his possession that would take mind control of the superheroes who tried entering land under his, or his allies', control.
