Mary was the one who joined the Secret Six and was captured by Superman when he rose to power; he forced the identity of the other two out of her mind and then killed her. Lori was subsequently sent to jail and served a 10-year sentence, and as for Christy... [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse No one knows.]]]]

* LampshadeHanging: The crossover had lots of fun with the various name-similarities, including DC-Batman being taken aback to learn that Tangent-Superman's real name was ''Harvey Dent''. * LegacyCharacter: The Atom. [[[spoiler: Manhunter]] is this in the 2007 miniseries

Flash forward. In 2005, the Tangent Universe was established as part of DC's wider [[TheMultiverse multiverse]] in a cameo in the CrisisCrossover ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'' in 2005, but lay fallow afterwards. But finally, in December 2007, the tenth anniversary of our first foray into the Tangent Universe, ''our'' Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica stumbles across a paper lantern with strange mystic properties that opens a portal to a whole new world -- nay, ''universe'' -- of adventure.

* InNameOnly: This trope is a deliberate unifying premise in the series. Unlike {{Elseworld}}s, which is a re-imagining of a DC character that usually retains most of the core elements, this series attaches the existing names to completely different characters with different powers, costumes, origins, appearances, and personalities -- Usually, the only common element is that they're metahumans in a modern setting.
