  • This version of Flipper Dipper, including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
  • In Post-Crisis/New Earth continuity, this member of the second generation of the Newsboy Legion was a young clone of his predecessor, not his biological son.
