This mini-series is not billed as an "Elseworlds", but author Tim Truman describes it as taking place "a second in the future".
Tim Truman said of his series: "Illustrator Scott Eaton and I have created a clean slate that touches on the old series, but isn't explicitly tied to it." He said he based Patch's character on the DCU's Patchwork Man [Swamp Thing (1972) #2]; Patch is not that same character, though. The villains in this series are old JLA villains dating back to 1960-63. Xotar's first appearance was Brave & Bold (1955) #29. Simon Magus, Saturna, the Troll King are from Justice League of America (1960) #2. Hyathis, Kromm and Sayvar from issue #3. Tazzala is presumably some relation to Zazzala, who appeared in #23. Kraad is from #25. Most of these villains had not been used since their invention, so any changes to these characters can easily be attributed to the Crisis. Nothing here clashes too terribly with existing continuity. The usage of Claw, the Unconquered in this series is much closer to his pre-Crisis origins (he had his own 12-issue series in the 1970s), than the one from the Primal Force series.
