History: (Back Issue I#119) - On Earth-41839, some heroes adapted seasonal alternatives to their normal superhero costumes. In the summer, Iron Man, Spider-Woman and the Flash wore costumes with short (or no) sleeves and shorts (or briefs) to stay cool. As winter arrived, heroes such as Elektra, Robin and Plastic Man opted to cover up more to better deal with the cold.

This reality was seen in the "Prince Street News" comic strip by Karl Heitmueller, Jr. that ran in most issues of Back Issue magazine, published by TwoMorrows Publishing.

Obviously, this reality was inhabited by not only Marvel superheroes but DC ones as well. Since the main image is the only image of this reality, the characters are (from left to right): Iron Man, Spider-Woman, Flash, Elektra, Robin and Plastic Man.
