Everyone knows that the Justice League are the greatest earth heroes, to whom we look up to and admire, who taught us what the true heroism is. Some of his villains were seen as the greatest villains of the world, through the years they gained other villains worthy of being in the pantheon of villains,through the years but unfortunately ended up losing their purposes, merely becoming bad copies of themselves. Taking advantage of the New 52, I would like to ask what villains you want to come back and how you would like them to return?? What do you think about his new villains??

I took this ideia from:

I want to see,these villains back:

Prometheus

Blessed be Morrison and his creations.

Prometheus is one of the better villains created for the team at all times,known to be a Batman's dark reflection, which he could be if it followed the other way,able to represent a real challenge for the team and their parents, discovering the secrets of the team, he was able to defeat it, because nothing is more dangerous to defeat someone than their secrets,and it was up to Batman and Martian Manhunter to put an end to his reign of terror, for almost forever and ever. Disappeared and replaced by an idiot, it took years until the original Prometheus could return and make life a living hell for heroes ,what can be worse than a villain who knows everything about you?

If he could go back, I almost wouldn't change anything unless incorporate his equipment in their armor and give some upgrade,like the helmet to be able to connect with all types of electronic systems and increase his mental capacity,have a kind of battle computer (like his 2nd costume,but incorporate on his brain) and make the suit capable to generate force fields,both to defend as to attack. Another thing I would change would make it more fit for direct confrontation and without needing prep time.

It would be interesting to see him and Batman fighting again, and thus show more of the Bat skills, which is little used in the stories and thus make Hall,shut up for good.

Kanjar Ro

One of more obscure JL villains,Kanjar Ro has already been seen in many ways throught the years like a dictator,a conqueror,a intergalactic businessman and even a simple thief as shown in the Justice League cartoon,but with so many appearances, why he was not able to become a great villain? A great story.

He could be reintroduced as before like a dictator of his planet,that seeking to conquer other planets and take their natural resources and people (leaving the planet uninhabitable) to be sold in the intergalactic market,and then sell the planets to other empires or use them to expand his own domains. Upon arriving on Earth he encountered a huge population of metahumans in the planet and would be obsessed studying them and how much could win,if he could sell them,he could kidnap the metahuman population until be held by the League, which he consider as his greatest prize,if they become his property.

@Captain13: Wow,This is a really nice idea!!

Queen of the Fables

I know,I know magical threats it's Justice League Dark's bussiness,but with future appearance of Cheetah on issue 13,is more than the time for the team face magical based villains...especially Queen of the Fables,with their distorted view of reality and particamentes unlimited powers, she was able to defeat the League with fairy tales and years later make Wonder Woman's life a hell, whom she sees as his greatest enemy... I really love the character, because a certain irony in his powers .. a character be able to rely on other characters and create an imaginary world,revealed it would be good Hollywood invading and absorbing ideas to start her reign in the ''real world''.

:what about you guys?

Speaking of Skeletor there. Why not make the Actual Skeletor from MOTU into a one shot villain since DC technically own the rights to do he-man comics. Skeletor would just own superman and maybe wonder woman by use of mind controlling superman.

1 and 3 would be better off as League villains IMO. Definitely 3 if they make him like the beefy, badass Despero rather than the original version. I'd quite like to see Mongul in a Superman movie at some point. Lots of possibilities there but if they introduce Platoon or Overkhast in there, I'll be mad as hell.

Too true. I'd quite like to see the Superman exiled into space story turned into a film. Though Superman could be on a space mission instead of self imposed exile. The rest of that story would fit brilliantly into a movie format.

1. The movie sucked not because of Hal Jordan's character but because of a poor script, a terrible story, poor choices of actors for Hal Jordan, Carol Ferris and Hector Hammond, weird special effects for the Green Lanterns' costume, mixing elements of Krona into Parallax and a failed attempt to recreate Geoff Johns' Secret Origin story along with his other work on Green Lantern. It didn't suck because Hal was the focus.

2. I kind of agree with you as a lot of people know John Stewart from the Justice League cartoon and mistakenly believe him to be the main Green Lantern but DC seem to be using Hal Jordan a lot in their other media such as video games to make people aware of him. Plus the Green Lantern cartoon has Hal as the star, not John. They're getting people aware of Hal more so that some people will be familiar with him in the Justice League movie. If John Stewart were to appear, he would be getting all the attention, not Hal.

1. I know Ryan Reynolds can do serious roles, he just wasn't suited to be Hal Jordan in my eyes after watching the film. And Blake Lively's performance was so dreary, not how Carol should act at all. And yes aside from Ultimate Nick Fury getting the benefit of being played by Samuel L Jackson, black superheroes haven't got the spotlight in comic book movies. I'm still waiting for a Black Panther film which he thoroughly deserves. Though Falcon is being set up to appear on the Avengers Assemble cartoon so maybe a black superhero will make the big time in Avengers 2.

2. This is kind of a response to 2 and your reboot question. There's been wild rumours over the Internets that Ryan Reynolds might continue as Green Lantern and just act far more seriously than he did in Green Lantern. Apparently the events of Green Lantern would be referenced but it would be given the Incredible Hulk treatment.

The next thing is that in an interview, Reynolds said if there were future Green Lantern films, the sequel would involve Sinestro defecting from the Corps and setting up his own one a la Sinestro Corps War and the third film would be about Hal's fall from grace Emerald Twilight style.

Why do you like John anyways. Is it the animated series? Do you read the green lantern comics? I have been reading his stuff on Green Lantern Corp pre and post flashpoint and a little of the pre flashpoing Justice League. Honestly, he is the least likeable character. He is very stern, very dull and very serious. His constructs differ from the rest. Kyle does very animated constructs, John would do very detailed and technical ones. With lotsa attention on every bolt and nut.

For the past ten years or so, he has been an absolute bore. The only time he was interesting was when he killed mogo and when he killed the other lantern to prevent him from telling the corps' secret. Other than that, Kyle and Guy are so much more interesting than John. Guy makes the wackiest comments ever and Kyle always have his own set of relationship problems. Hal by far is the most interesting with so many things going on.

Even reading back my friend's GL omnibus, John has always been that serious and dull guy. So I'm not sure why you want him to be the main GL so bad, other than the fact that he starred in JLU.

The thing I don't like about Jackson being Nick Fury is that it's all down to recent popularity in the Ultimates. Marvel asked if they could use Jackson's likeness for Ultimate Nick Fury, referenced the fact that Jackson would be the right actor to portray Ultimate Nick Fury when the Ultimates were discussing which actors they would want to play them in a movie and the worst part is that they've done away with the white 616 Fury and replaced him with a black son who's now sporting an eye patch and has taken over for his father! That's plain wrong that a brilliant character's history has been erased due to movie popularity.

The Amanda Waller thing sounds too much like what the Avengers did which incidentally DC and Warner Bros are trying to avoid. Fail there. And are the rumours true that it's going to be a New 52 Justice League inspired movie?

#32 Edited by sethysquare (3842 posts) - - Show Bio

@Lvenger: Rumors are just rumors. But just looking at which characters they're pushing, you can know what the direction of the movie is.

Its pretty obvious they're going with new 52 line up. They're spending millions promoting it. Hal Jordan has been their most profitable lantern so its stupid to not include him in.

Which means they'll need another minority which is where Cyborg comes along. They're even building a amusement ride in WB movie world in aussie with Justice League members and Cyborg is part of it.

Not to mention Cyborg's role in Injustice, JL Earth's Final Defense and Batman Lego 2. Theres no way they wont include Hal and if they want diversity, Cyborg seems to be their only choice. So basically its the new 52 line up. Theres a possibility we might not see Aquaman. Possibly.

Itll probably be the new 52 line up, but not likely the new 52 story.

Uhm. From where. Not from the past 10 years of Green Lantern. Tell me some of his moments where you thought that he did great in GL for the past 10 years. Other than Killing Mogo or killing the other GL.

Haha Urmm Martian Manhunter's human form is a black guy? Is that close enough? Anyways, it would be cool to have diversity like Asian superheroes, Latino superheroes, and etc., but I doubt they are ever going to be major components. Young Justice puts in a lot of nice diversity though like Cheshire, Huntress, and Artemis are all Vietnamese or part Vietnamese. Blue Beetle is Latino, that is pretty given. Aqualad is a black Atlantean. Bumblebee is black too, Mal Duncan makes an appearance every once in a while. Rocket also appears at the end of the season too I believe. It would be nice to have diversity, but I don't think it is required. I rather have the Justice League movie stick with all the original members just because that's who the Justice League members are, I think people would be upset if they replaced Hal with John Stewart because he isn't actually the original member... People don't like it when you switch characters or do something drastically different than what their fan base has grown up with.
