Animated original 7 was dope, they pretty much had all the essentials, I have no idea why they put Cyborg on the team in the reboot, other than ethnical reasons, but still Martian Manhunter was a Martian. I guess people are racist against Martians as well.......sigh

Yea animated 7 is my favourite version they should have just gone with that one and added a few if so. 14 sounds like way too many.

cyborgs in his twenties  
 
 
 
 
im happy for the most part, though it would have made more sense to have j'onn or another veteran leaguer be in the original 7 and have cyborg in the other 8 instead of Mera. 
 
my thoughts
 
Superman 
Batman 
Wonder Woman 
Green Lantern 
The Flash 
Aquaman  
Cyborg-love him to death, but i dont think he should be a founder.....a member definitly but not a founder 
Element Girl-i dont know if she's replacing metamorpho or not. i like rex but who can resist an insane hottie 
Atom- same as hawkman and green arrow
Deadman-id be happier if he wasnt already in the shadowp..........i mean justice league dark 
Green Arrow- same as hawkman 
Hawkman-not suprised or mad.  
Zealot-for some reason i keep relating er to diana wich is just my problem so i wont bellyache about it 
Mera- like her but she does NOT need to be here if Aquaman is already here. so many other more unique/more deserving heroes/heroines

No. He's not. You have no idea what you're talking about, with all due respect. It might seem like he's thirty but he isn't. I am not okay with Cyborg being a founder. Being a member, ok, but a founder? But that's for another rant.  
 
My JLA; if the World was perfect  

 
Dick Grayson (Field Leader) 
Superman 
Wonder Woman 
Green Lantern (Hal or Kyle) 
Green Arrow 
Tempest 
Flash (Barry Allen) 
Martian Manhunter

Superman

Batman

Wonder Woman

Aquaman

Green Lantern (Hal)

Flash (Barry)

Captain Marvel (Billy)

Green Arrow (Ollie)

Black Canary

That's who should be on the team called: Justice League of America.

Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Aquaman, Flash, Green Lantern, and Martian Manhunter as the founding members.

Deadman, Vixen, Mera, August General in Iron, Rocket Red, Crimson Fox, and Element Woman should be later members. If they're gonna drop the "of America" from the name, then the team has gotta be bigger and have a more global presence, if that makes sense.

The Marvel Family, Booster Gold, Cyborg and Plastic Man could be 'honorary members', backup if ever needed.

I'd like to see Mister Terrific lead some sorta Checkmate-like organization again.

I will forever hate you for putting Donna on the YJ roster. I mean, forever hate you with a passion. The rest is well thought out -- though I never liked Vixen on the JL for some reason :/

@ReVamp: I tried doing the last two teams based on age, so if Donna's on the completely wrong team, I'll change it. I was gonna put Red Tornado or Hawkgirl instead of Vixen, but I think Vixen needs the exposure.

#19 Posted by ReVamp (22865 posts) - - Show Bio

@Gambit1024: If you're doing the last two teams based on age then Donna Troy and Supergirl need to be switched. Beast Boy and Raven are kinda in-between, so they fit on both teams.

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

@ReVamp: Supergirl's not that young.

She is. In fact, she's exactly the age of everyone on that team. (Going by Pre-Flashpoint of course) She was 17, Tim had turned 18 IIRC. Wonder Girl was around the same age. She just got put onto the JLA because she wasn't on a team, but don't let it fool you.

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

@ReVamp: Huh. Well putting her and Superboy on the same team would be dumb, then. I changed the last two rosters, btw.

#23 Posted by ReVamp (22865 posts) - - Show Bio

@Gambit1024: It would. I don't have anything against your teams, far from it, I was just making sure that you had the information in full. ^_^

#24 Posted by The_Tree (7288 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd want the team to be something like this:

  • Superman
  • Batman
  • Wonder Woman
  • Aquaman
  • Flash (Barry)
  • Green Lantern (Hal)
  • Green Arrow
  • Black Lightning
  • Martian Manhunter
  • Black Canary
