Page 8, panel 3
This page presents Ice's original origin as though it was a fairy tale. But Booster Gold met Ice's mother and brother in Justice League America #84 (1993) and accompanied her body back to her homeland for her funeral in Justice League #91.

The origin given for Ice on this page was first presented in Justice League: Generation Lost #12 (2010).

Ice, Fire, Booster Gold, and Blue Beetle were core members of the Justice League International for most of the series' run. This cameo flashback could have taken place almost any time between when Fire and Ice adopted those costumes in Justice League America #31 (1989) and Booster's costume was destroyed by Doomsday in Superman #74 (1992).

Ice's fatal confrontation versus the Overmaster was depicted in Justice League Task Force #14 (1994).
Page 23, panel 2
When Overmaster first confronted the 1984 Detroit-Era Justice League in the multipart story "Rebirth" (beginning Justice League of America #233), Superman was not a member of the Justice League. When Overmaster returned in 1994 for the multi-part JLI-era story "Judgment Day" (beginning in Justice League America #89), Superman was again not a member of the Justice League. (In fact, Lex Luthor was dying during the summer of 1994 and had initiated his endgame strategy, keeping Superman busy trying to save all of Metropolis from total destruction.) So linking Overmaster to Superman to Lex Luthor seems... unlikely. Could the Oans be wrong?

Despite what Ice says, Fire has killed, probably more than once. See Checkmate #12 (2007) for details.
