Continuity

This episode has continuity glitches galore as members of the Legion continue to exist after the Super friend key to their existence are removed: Cheetah, Lex Luthor, and Bizarro. While it could be argued that Cheetah (Priscilla Rich) and Luthor could have become evil without Wonder Woman and Superman existing that still leaves Bizzaro who as an imperfect duplicate of Superman can't exist without a Superman.

More over Scarecrow comments that Superman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern shouldn't exist even though he should still remember that the three attempts at changing history now failed.

Finally, despite Luthor learning the origins (and therefore secret Ids) of Superman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern he never uses this information.
