Pitch your line up for a second JLA book

#1 Edited by sethysquare (3843 posts) - - Show Bio

As we all know, it seems like Justice League would take a major turn of events in #12 and the line up is going to be very different. There is going to be a trinity war next year and chances are there is going to be a team set up after the war to be more in line with the government's wishes. So over here you can pitch a new team.

My team would be based on the fact that it that would be more in line with what the government wants.

My choices are

Hal Jordan is going to leave Justice League and set up the new team.

So

Hal Jordan

Hawkman

Green Arrow

Big Barda

Supergirl

Captain Atom

Booster Gold

Now pitch your 2nd team for Justice League.

@sethysquare: I freaking love your line-up.

If I had to chose one of my own, I'd make a team similar to the Justice League Elite or the Outsiders in the fact that they are proactive and focus on talking down dictators and terrorists more so than just supervillains. The line up would consist of the following:

  • Green Arrow (seems he's the guy who'd like to take down corrupt governments)
  • Manchester Black (introduce him in Action Comics first or at least have #775 still be in continuity)
  • Vera Black (same as Manchester)
  • Black Lightning
  • Captain Atom (just so he can be used somewhere after his series ends)
  • Menagerie
  • And for the seventh spot, either Hawkgirl, Coldcast, Grace, Halo, or Atom

They could keep the name Justice League Elite or switch and be called the Justice League Edge

@Superdork: whats that?

@Zeeguy91: sounds good. Maybe add Hawkman as the 7th spot cos Hawkgirl is exclusive to earth 2.

@sethysquare: A revival of Justice League Detroit as the Justice League of America. They're sanctioned by the U.S. Government.

@Superdork: sounds good. I can't recognise all of the members though

Costumes change and a lot of their members aren't super well known, so it's understandable.

Roster:

Maybe even add in Green Arrow/Hawkman/Mera/Atom

@JohnnyWalker: Don't know who the hell Gipsy is.

Zatanna looks ugly as hell in that costume. LOL. But yeah I would not mind Captain Steel to be in new earth. I actually really like one of the captain/commander steel from jsa

@sethysquare: sorry bad spelling. gypsy. shell a really nerfed scarlet witch pre reality warper.

@Sethysquare: she's an illusionist and Martian Mamhunter's surrogate daughter.

#14 Posted by sethysquare (3843 posts) - - Show Bio

@JohnnyWalker: oh okays.

@Avenging-X-Bolt: She isn't very interesting. Don't think she should be allowed in the team. LOL.

#15 Posted by Avenging-X-Bolt (13414 posts) - - Show Bio

How would you know if she's interesting or not if you didn't even know who she is?

#16 Posted by Avenging-X-Bolt (13414 posts) - - Show Bio

Hal Jordan, Martian Manhunter, Zatanna, Steel ( Irons), Vibe, Vixen, Element Woman

Replace Zatanna with Red Tornado or Atom and I would be all over that.

@TheCommissar: Sounds pretty great doesn't it. I'm still waiting for Big Barda's new 52 appearance. I'll be interested to see how they would update her costume. If anything her costume seriously needs some updating,

#27 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

I'll shoot for a completely new roster:

  • Martian Manhunter (leader)
  • Captain Marvel
  • Black Lightning
  • Plastic Man
  • Supergirl
  • Atom (Ray Palmer)
  • Mera

Yeah, the helmet's of pretty ridiculous size. If ComicVine is right about the New Gods coming into play soon, though, we may not have to wait too long.

Only by four people. I remember when we all thought there was gonna be 15 eventually.

#37 Posted by Lvenger (20755 posts) - - Show Bio

@TheGraySon: Thanks! I chose Green Arrow as he has a broader appeal IMO. He's well known outside of the comic books due to Smallville and the new TV series Arrow. And he's already tried to get into the Justice League and Trevor's apporached him already so I figured that makes sense. As for Animal Man, that is a good suggestion. I was trying to get more females on the team but Canary and Mera are enough I guess. But Animal Man's more of an edgy series now anyway and hasn't interacted much with the rest of the DC Universe. That should change with the Rot event of course.

Martian Manhunter

Nightwing (Is he still travelling with Haley's Circus though? o.0)

Zatanna

Captain Atom

Booster Gold

Supergirl
