So lemme ask, X-Bolt, can this reimagine thing work like how Stan Lee did his "Just Imagine Stan Lee Creating the DC Universe" project?

Alright, man. I had to ask. This is what I'd have for a JLA cartoon idea a pal of mine and I got in mind for our own DC Animated Universe.

1. The JLA are found when several of Earth's champions are brought together by an infiltration of an alien race determined to undermine human society and to take over Earth itself. The League was founded first in a common area of Metropolis before they went to action by fate.

2. They were the few heroes targetted by the invaders because of the threat they posed to their invasion and to face the bigger threats no one super-hero could deal with alone.

3. They'd have been in action for only a short time, still adapting to working as a team as well as getting to know what they all could do. The individual personalities making for some issues of course.

4. The roster is the same founders that were used in the "Origin of the Justice League of America" by Mark Waid and Ivan Reis following Infinite Crisis, save for one tweak. Thus, the roster is this; Superman (Clark Kent), Batman (Bruce Wayne), Wonder Woman (Diana), Aquaman (Arthur Curry), The Flash (Barry Allen), Green Lantern (John Stewart), J'onn J'onzz the Martian Manhunter, and Black Canary (Dinah Laurel Lance).

It's just in the rough phases, but I think it works for the long run. Would love to see what others are capable of.

1. Founded when Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Black Lightning, and Green Lantern team up to stop the sorceror Felix Faust from summoning Starro (made to be more Lovecraftian). Felix compels many of their individual enemies to work for him as a prototype of the Injustice Gang. These five are unable to stop Felix, and they only manage to pull off a win with the help of hundreds of other heroes from around the world.

2. Founded in Happy Harbor to as a humanitarian and peace-keeping organization. Home base is off planet.

3. Has been active for 2 years.

4. The roster is the orginal five and almost every hero at DC.

I had another one from this idea my friends and I made from a DC alternate Earth we've incorporated, since it feels like there'd be a lot of interesting universes beyond the 52, if the return of Earth-Prime's a key example!

1) Founded by the children and successors of the Justice League along with other heroes united during a breakout on Stryker's Island Prison in Metrpolis. Seeking to find the parties responsible, a new generation of the Justice League of America was born. These heroes who forged this new JLA are Superman (Kevin Kent, son of Clark Kent and Lois Lane), Batman (Wade Garrison, an orphan who was taken to be a weapon of the League of Assassins but escaped), Wonder Woman (Angela Prince, daughter of Diana), Aquaman (Tohru Hama, a half-human half-Atlantean who can shapeshift and manipulate water), The Flash (Haley Baldwin, young up-and-coming scientist who works for S.T.A.R. Labs Keystone City), Green Lantern (Jeff Anderson, a friend of Kevin's and wielding a power ring that can think for herself, which he's dubbed "Ringo"), and Ms. Martian (M'gann M'orzz, in this universe Ma'alefa'ak's unknown daughter and J'onn's niece wanting to be a hero like her uncle). At first coordinated by the Martian Manhunter himself, this team has since grown into its' own.

2) Originally united to find the persons responsible for the Stryker's Island breakout, this team eventually decided to remain together in order to follow the amazing legacy the JLA has forged, as well as to be a place for the newer metahumans and super-heroes as well as even older heroes to feel at ease and where they'd belong. Their headquarters, called the Hall, first was underneath Metropolis itself, but now has been relocated to a mountain that hides the base from within.

3) Active for 5 years or so.

4) The roster consists of the modern "Super Seven", as well as other heroes such as Hero (Cameron Cruz, a student of UCLA who has access to the morphogenic field which lets him access all of the super powers known to humanity or that they will learn from an incident with a manmade H-Dial), Micron (Dr. Carlos Alvarez, with special nanites in his blood that allow him to manipulate his size), Tek (Al Cranston, who produces his own cybernetics via his unique bio-nanites in his bloodstream), Zephyr (Heather Myers, a counterpart to both Red Tornado and Cyclone who manipulates wind in all its' forms), Red Hood (Lian Harper, taking up the hero game like her father), and more!

2. They first teamed together in New Jersey, but officially formed on Apocalypse.

3. It has been active for 10 years.

4. Yes. Huntress was killed by Lex Luthor and was replaced by Hawkman. Then Batman left and Nightwing took his place. Aquaman quit the team, and was not replaced. Kyle was killed by Doomsday and was replaced by John Stewart. Supergirl later joined the team. Hawkman was killed by a brainwashed Superman.

So, the current roster consists of:

Wonder Woman (leader)

Power Girl

Martian Manhunter

Nightwing

John Stewart

Supergirl

1)Billy Batson was given a scroll of prophecy that speaks of the great 7....empowered by Shazam and directed by the scroll....BB in his new transformed state goes and rounds up who he believes to be the prophesied about group. Using the wisdom of Solomon to decipher the traits of the individuals.

He chooses:

Star Fire

Animal Man

Mister Miracle

Big Barda

Green Lantern

Black Canary

Shazam (leader)

2) The rock of eternity is HQ

3) As time goes forward individuals that more holistically fit the scroll's description replace Shazam's initial picks. First example: Tyroc replaces Black Canary in the JL's Fourth Month

4) been active 12 days

#12 Posted by CapFanboy (5109 posts) - - Show Bio
1.How was it founded and by whom

The Justice League was founded by Doctor Fate when the JSA ran into trouble with the hordes of Darkseid on Apokolips. Fate managed to escape and needed to bring together a new team. He recruited Superman, GL Hal Jordan, Barry Allen, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Elongated Man and Green Arrow. Batman thought this gathering was a little suspicious and tailed the team to Apokolips.

2. Where was it founded and why?

On earth to rescue the JSA.

3.How long has it been active?

Not very, in my scenario the league have only operated for around 3 years.

4.Has the roster changed at all? And if so , how?

Yes. Martian Manhunter was imprisoned on Apokolips and was rescued. Elongated Man left to join JSA and MM took his place.

And of course don't forget the other important things

Supes died...

1.How was it founded and by whom

Demonic forces from the Underworld (or some other magical world, it doesn't really matter) come to invade Earth, but they need to block out the sun because their sensitive to light. So, the Justice League, consisting of the following members, has come to stop them (Also this takes place in an alternate future):

1. Cassandra Cain aka Batwoman: Kate Kane, Bruce Wayne, Richard Grayson, and Tim Drake have all retired and/or died, so Cassandra is the new Batwoman and head of the Justice League. She has become an even better fighter and is now able to read and write with the best of them. She is the leader of the Justice League.

2. Conner Kent aka Superman: Conner has full Kyrptonian powers and TK, and has married Cassandra Sandsmark.

3. Kaldur'Ahm aka Aquaman

4. Karen Beecher-Duncan aka Queen Bee

5. Cassandra Kent aka Wonder Woman

6. Ariella Grey aka Captain Marvel: A young woman chosen by the new Guardian of the Rock of Eternity to be the new Captain Marvel with all new gods fueling her power. (I made her up)

7. Alexander Grey aka CM2: The brother of Captain Marvel who is fueled by Male Gods rather than Female ones. (I made him up)

8. Iris West II aka Flash

2. Where was it founded and why?

The Justice League was founded in the ruins of Gotham because the heroes knew that the Demons would never think to look for them there.

3.How long has it been active?

Only about a year. The group has some new members, and some old members that are not used to working with one another.

4.Has the roster changed at all? And if so , how?

Basically, this is a future Justice League, with younger heroes having taken new mantles or the mantles of their predecessors.

And of course don't forget the other important things

I made up the two new Marvels, simply because I feel as though the current Marvels (Billy, Mary, and Freddy) are becoming far too convoluted and unnecessarily complicated. I like the idea of a Female being Captain Marvel as well.

1. The League was founded by Superman, Batman and Martian Manhunter. They were soon joined by Hal Jordan, Wonder Woman, Starman, and Green Arrow.

2. THe team was founded after a large scale White Martian invasion in Metropolis. Earth's finest gathered together to vanquish the martians. Afterwards, the three founders created the team to avoid any future crises.

3.Been active for 3 years or so.

4.So far the roster hasn't changed. Other heros may team up with the league due to the nature of the event, but the main roster has remained reletively in tact.

#38 Edited by xybernauts (858 posts) - - Show Bio

1.How was it founded and by whom?

  • Superman
  • Batman
  • Wonder Woman
  • Flash -
  • Green Lantern -
  • Aquaman
  • Martian Manhunter
  • Cyborg
  • Silias Stone (Cyborg's father)
  • Graves
  • Sandman

2. Where was it founded and why?

The Endless (upper center - Dream of the Endless)

I really like Geoff Johns DCnU origins so I wouldn't change it, but instead I'd create a type of prequel. An origin story that happened before the origin story, so to speak. The basic idea is that the Endless are responsible for the creation of the Justice League, specifically Dream of the Endless aka The Sandman (Daniel Hall). The basic idea is that Daniel Hall seeks to continue the legacy of Wesley Dodds. Wesley Dodds is the original Sandman who acted as the avatar of Dream of the Endless when Dream was trapped on earth. Wesley Dodds used to be in the Justice Society. Daniel Hall, the current avatar of Dreams of the Endless, feels the need to honor the legacy of his predecessor by creating a new version of the Justice Society which in turn would be the Justice League. So prior to the creation of the Justice League, Dream of the Endless brought each of the Justice League founders into "The Dreaming" during their sleep where he would use dreams to inspire them to come together and create the Justice League. Upon waking, each of the founders (except Martian Manhunter) would forget the dream, but they would be hit by the unconscious compulsion to meet together during a crisis, in Geoff Johns origin story, the invasion of Darkseid arc. So to sum it up, the Justice League was created in The Dreaming by The Sandman and the other founding members The Endless, Dream of the Endless, The Dreaming, etc. are characters and places that originate from DC's Vertigo comics.

3.How long has it been active?

Same length as the DCnU version.

4.Has the roster changed at all? And if so , how?

The roster is that same except I added Silias Stone (Cyborg's father), Graves, Martian Manhunter, and Sandman.

The book that the Justice League is named after.
  • Sandman aka Dream of the Endless "oversees the realm of dreams and imagination ("The Dreaming") and regulates dreams and inspiration." Because of this I think it makes sense that the "inspiration" for the creating the JL originate from him. Plus Sandman was one of DC Comics original founding characters so symbolically I think it makes sense to include him.
  • Martian Manhunter is one of the original founding members of the JL in previous incarnations of the JL, so I think it makes sense to include him. Plus it'll make all the crybabies happy :) Basically Martian Manhunter was at the battle where the JL came together psychically influencing each JL member making sure they come together at the right spot.Martian Manhunter acts as a proxy for Dream.
  • Even though Cyborg is the hero in the JL, Victor Stone's powers come from his father, Silas Stone. So to me it makes sense that both Victor and Silas are also visited by Dream of the Endless in his dreams. Somehow Dream inspires the creation of Cyborg.
  • Graves names the Justice League in the DCnU origin. While he isn't directly responsible for creating the League, he helped to promote them with his book. I think it makes sense that he be visited by Dream of the Endless as well. There would be a back story behind the Graves arc which illustrates how Despair of the Endless takes away Graves hope turning him against the JL.

@OutlawRenegade: @JamesKM716: Thank you for including Cyborg!

Version 1:

This team was created by Colonel Steve Trevor to fight extraterrestrial and extra-dimensional invaders. They also recover extraterrestrial and mystic artifacts. Only two members of the team have actual powers, so Trevor has to do a lot of planning and strategizing. These two super-powered members are teens that Trevor sees as his brothers. They are liked by the public to the point of super-stardom but the government doesn't totally trust them. A.R.G.U.S. supports them. Think Halo/Mass Effect meets Indiana Jones meets Thor.
