Rebuild the Justice Jeague...

Well, in a recent interview, Dwayne McDuffie talked about running a Justice League of America... without the big 5... (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and Flash)

“Issue #31 is my last crossover/tie-in for a while,” McDuffie said. “All of the dangling plotlines from the first two years will be tied up. Final Crisis will have a devastating effect on the team. And then we go forward...”

McDuffie said that in terms of the long-term planning for the DCU, he does get a call to let him know where things are headed so he can reflect changes in characters or the larger DCU in his title, but as Final Crisis loomed, “I got a lot of calls. JLA is right at the center of the DCU, so anything of significance that happens elsewhere will be reflected in its pages as soon as possible.”

So...looking at possible replacements...how do you replace Superman and Batman? The earth has a plethora of Kryptonians on it now. Can you just grab one? Likewise for the “winner” of the upcoming Battle for the Cowl in the world of Batman? What about Icon or one of the Milestone heroes, even?

“I don't think you replace individual members, you try and shore up the team,” McDuffie said. “A Kryptonian with the right values could be a Justice Leaguer, Icon's certainly qualified, and whoever wins the Battle for the Cowl is probably good enough, too, but none of those guys are on my short list. I'd want J'onn and Aquaman, but they're both dead, so that's out. I dunno. Amethyst?”

And McDuffie’s answer for a Wonder Woman replacement is basically the same. “I'd look for someone to help the team, not fill a slot. You don't get somebody to replace Michael Jordan, you build a good starting five.”

But still, there are many unanswered questions – how well does the JLA work without the “big three?” How does the world react to a JLA without Superman or Wonder Woman in it? How do the other heroes react?

So... without Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman (who are busy in their Trinity thing)... Hal Jordan or Kyle Rayner (Who are busy with the War of Light and the upcoming Blackest Night) and Flash (Who will be busy with the Rebirth of Barry Allan)... who do we build the team around?

I mean, Aquaman was written out today in the Christmas Special by... DAN DIDIO. So something is going on, and it seemed like the original Super Friends/Silver Age style Aquaman... Martian Manhunter's dead... so where do we start?

The idea here is this... rebuild the core 7 JLA using DC characters... but make it believable.. make it a comic YOU would like to read and get into...


Here's my rebuild JLA team...

  • John Stewart
  • Zatanna
  • Dr. Light
  • Red Arrow
  • Firestorm
  • Red Tornado
  • Black Lightning

So, come on people... show me your lineup...
