^This title was solicited as an Elseworlds issue, but was not officially branded as such, despite including all-Elseworlds stories.
^Although not officially labelled an Elseworlds tale, the story nevertheless refers back to Daredevil/Batman: Eye for an Eye (Marvel Comics, 1997) which was labelled as such. That the two are in the same continuity clearly marks this as an Elseworlds tale.
^The current TPB of this story retitles it as JSA: The Golden Age.
