Indeed! His more-Neutral alignment also explains how he can go between
the two worlds while still allowing them to be kept mostly separate.

Well, it's a bit complicated, and would have been explained better in
the story (I should have it up soon, it's pretty short), but my
intuition is that he actually has a separate past and appearance in
the LNH20 world. He stepped into that universe's LNHQ shortly after it
was created, so it to incorporate him into its history. From his own
point of view, he only showed up just after the invasion, but from the
POV of the universe he was a founding member. Also he's aged in comic
book time while the rest of the Legion was aging in real time until
the Present Day. He uses the Library to effectively commute between
different worlds.

I wonder whether this universe has its own native version of Thoth,
whether that version is still a god, and what he thinks of the fact
his counterpart's running around

AJM (It also occurs to me that, though no longer technically a WC, LL
still fits with a major part of your personality, the "Paladin of
Continuity side.)
