You have to wonder about the thought process here:
"Let's see, we've added a black guy, a Chinese kid, and a Latino - what's left?"
"Women, gays and Jews."
"Eh. Just throw em all together and be done with it."
Oh, and as long as we're here, Atom Smasher (formerly Nuklon) and Justice (Vance Astrovik) are also obscure comic book Jews. Y'know, in case you were wondering.
