Has anyone else noticed...

Has anybody noticed/liked  that DC have chosen characters,with similar powers and backgrounds, to be the newest incarnation of the JLA as the original 7 members of the JLA?
 
Batman (Wayne) - Batman (Grayson),  

I hope I don't have to explain their relationship .
 
Superman - Supergirl.   
 
Same powers, same planet of origin and they're cousins. 
 
Flash - Jesse Quick
 
Same powers and color scheme for their costumes.
 
Wonder Woman - Donna Troy 

Similar powers, Donna was Wonder Woman's sidekick and even took the name Wonder Woman in her absence and they're from the same place of origins (even though Donna was created not born).
 
Green Lantern - Jade 

 
The same power ring, they belong to the same corps and Jade's father was the original GL.
 
Martian Manhunter - Starman
 
They are both, the last  of their kind, who have found refuge on Earth .
 
Aquaman - Congorilla 
 
Both have powers and abilities as certain animals.
 
This is my first forum, so go easy on me
 
Thanks for reading :)

No Offense, but I thought it was obvious.....except maybe for the congorilla and starman connections

Didn't the JLA originally have 12 members?

@Avenging-X-Bolt: @cattlebattle:  Thanks for the feedback, I guess. I just wanted to see if anyone had noticed or not because I hadn't seen anything on here. Sorry, it's only my first forum  :)
 
@fodigg: No, they had 7 founding members :)

It's cool, DC consistently has teams that have analogues for it's original 7 JL, members. Most teams have a kryptonian or related type character, A wonder woman type character, a Batman type, a GL, a speedster......you get the picture. It's no doubt they would have JL proper contain members reflective of its original team

Ah, I see: 
 
 
 
In my head I was picturing a very similar cover but with twelve. I new GA was on that cover.
