Notes

Blackhawk Tallies, Earth-One,

Here's the twofold problem with tallying Blackhawk's crashes and konks in an Earth-One context:
1/ Did ALL of Blackhawk's earlier history also take place on Earth-One? Definitely not. Did ANY of that history take place on Earth-One? Yeah probably but how much and which stories? There's no defendable rule for picking which Quality Universe stories remain "real" in the Earth-One timeline.
2/ Worse yet, from Blackhawk #109 onward, the World War II stories are presented not at all chronologically, with most of them being "Combat Diary" flashbacks. In short, Blackhawk is confusing.
