Re: The Daily Star (Earth-2)

Also, one of the distinctions between Earth-2 and Earth-1 was that the Daily Planet was the Earth-1 counterpart of Earth-2's Daily Star. Thus, Earth-2's Clark and Lois not only never joined the Planet staff, but Clark eventually succeeded George Taylor as the Star's editor-in-chief.
