I'd retcon everything that happened to Wally under DiDio's run regardless. Retcon everything that happened to Billy Batson too while I'm at it.

Bahh. I'd retcon everything to happened to DC under Didio, except the following 32 comic books: The Brave and the Bold, vol. 3 #1-16; Terra #1-4, and Power Girl vol. 2 #1-12.
W: Professor Plum, you were once a professor of psychiatry specializing in helping paranoid and homicidal lunatics suffering from delusions of grandeur.

PP: Yes, but now I work for the United Nations.

W: So your work has not changed.

That's almost twenty years of stuff, Ken. Surely there was something in that time you liked other than these 32 issues

Batman '66. Wonder Woman '77. Various issues of Scooby Doo Team-Up, not that any of them were canonical.

I did enjoy the parts of the parts of the most recent Hawkman series that I read, but I haven't finished the last year or so. And I did enjoy portions of Doomsday Clock. I just don't know that I enjoyed them enough that I wouldn't be willing to sacrifice them.

But, yeah there's a reason why I refer to the past 17 or so years as the "Radium Age."

Can one of the imprisoned heroes be 80s Monica Captain Marvel, who is shocked to learn that her doppelgänger first tanked her rep as leader of the Avengers (way way back in the day) before blithely giving up her name - and then her second one - to Mar-Vell's idiot son, and on and on and on? Please?

Also the original Night Thrasher?

Have a spaceship from the United Planets show up under a flag of truce to a diplomatic meeting with high ranking members of the Khund Empire at a Khund religious sanctuary within Khundian space.

Have the second in command of the United Planets’ vessel (Commander Marty Stu, a woman, despite her gender-bent name) launch into a xenophobic diatribe about how much she hates the Khunds and demand her captain launch a pre-emptive attack. When her captain tells her “no,” she should physically assault the captain, disable her, and launch the attack. After destroying the Khund’s holy site and killing dozens of the defenseless Khunds, the Khund counter-attack will destroy the United Planets ship and kill almost all of the crew... But not Marty Stu!

Marty Stu then gathers up the dead bodies of the Khunds, rigs them with explosives, and uses them to ambush the next Khundian ship that arrives in the system to rescue survivors of the battle.

Then the Legionnaires show up, arrest Marty Stu, and after a swift court martial, she’s cashiered out of the service and handed over to the Khunds for war crimes. A time-traveling Superman gives a heartfelt speech where he explains to some of the Legion Cadets (and thus the readers) the importance of the laws and customs of war, international norms, and why war criminals are the lowest form of scum.

You're not the first person I have heard say that Burnham would not have been able to stay on a Fed ship, especially not an experimental ship, in real life. I always wondered how Lorca could get her assigned to the Discovery after starting the Klingon War

<Sigh>

this would be MUCH better as an Avengers story, but since it's you i'll OK it...
AVENGERS(FRANCHISE ERA)/STAR TREK DISCOVERY CROSS
We open up on an Avengers Team(Cap, Wanda, Vision, Simon, Beast, Valkyrie, Carol Danvers) waking up on the Klingon Religious Santuary, having been blasted out of their time by Kang The Conqueror. The opening event's of Discovery play out as normal UNTILL Burnham(Marvel would use the actual names, having got permission from Paramount cause Movie Money) lauches the Attack. Cap(having been able to talk the Klingon's into this in the first place) gives the crew their marching orders, saving 5% of the gathered Klingon's. Unfortunately, Carol and Simon couldn't hit atmo in time to stop the return fire(having been in the middle of Search & Rescue Operations).

When Marty comes down to rig the bodies, she get's jumped by Valkyrie(Who spotted her as she was sorting through the dead. There'd be a couple of panels before showing The Klingon's practically worshipping the ground she walk's on, making her uncomfortable), who's screaming at her about her Dishonorable & Cowardly actions, it taking all four strong folk to pull her off her.

This time, Cap prevents the rescue ships from killing her, instead talking to both Federation and Klingon assembly's into Court-martialing her and sending her over to the Klingon's for War Crimes(giving his usual "Cap is the Perfect Hype-man" Speeches).

As the Avengers team vanishes after Burnham land's on the Planet Rura Pentay, we see Kang give a grin as he say's into a recorder
"It's sad what happened to her, but i'll not have a Woman LIKE THAT polluting my Family Tree. I'm a Conqueror, not a Genocidist...."
