1985: A Bad Year for Power Girl?

An possible hint regarding INFINITE CRISIS occurred in this week's JSA #72. On the team's return trip through time -- after defeating Degaton with the Golden Age JSA in 1951 -- Rip Hunter's time trvelling vehicle hit some significant 'turbulance' at 1985 -- the same year that the original CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS was published. Power Girl, whose origins have been quite convoluted since that seminal event series, was most affected by the turbulance. An indication that her origin-- and anyone else's who was findamentally altered by the original CRISIS -- might be re-retconned by INFINITE CRISIS?

Another implication that may or may not have been intentional is actually placing the original CRISIS in the year 1985 -- a year, given current continuity, in which none of the heroes were active. All signs in the current DCU point to 10 or 15 years of activity for the modern age of heroes. When INFINITE CRISIS is over, will that have changed?
