Analysis Notes

General Only 11:1-2 and 18:1 are dealt with here.
11:1 The first Khund invasion would presumably have been in the 20th century, as seen in the Invasion! mini-series.
This may be merely an exceptionally ruined portion of Metropolis, since it appeared top be in much better shape just 40-odd years in the future, when Booster Gold fled to the 20th century.
11:2 At this point, Superman-Prime had long ago left Earth.  The fate of any given one of his heirs at this point in time is unknown.
18:1 Commuter trains of a sort have also been seen in Legionnaires #71, so such a station isn’t unusual in the 30th century.
Gates can be seen on the platform on the other side of the tracks.
Since these three Legionnaires were separated by the Earth/Outpost split, we will assume the scene occurs slightly before <Legionnaires #66> (which was released the same month).
