Hmmmm. Earth-20... I've been thinking about this.

Personally, I like to think that airships on Earth-20 went the way of the
dodo while the Killfile was up (a period of time that someone else I
explained this to has persuaded me to refer to as the Downtime). This'd put
in a nice visual difference between the two, plus let the Saviors have an
airship based on the ones in Batman: The Animated Series.

Meanwhile, in Looniverse-Y, everyone gets around using hang gliders.
