- According to Roy Thomas, in All-Star Squadron Annual #3, 1984, Ian Karkull’s elaborate attack on eight future U.S. presidents took place on 28 & 29 June 1941. Doctor Fate first encountered Ian Karkull in More Fun Comics #69 July 1941, and then fought a teamed-up Karkull and Wotan in More Fun Comics #70 Aug 1941. Therefore both of those adventures took place before 28 June 1941. In fact, according to Green Lantern's remark on page 26 of the Annual, the second Fate versus Karkull battle had happened "last year." It therefore follows that those stories took place not later than December 1940, with earlier Doctor Fate stories being likewise “compressed forward” on the Earth-Two timeline to compensate.
