I just read on the Source that the JSA will in fact be back! Thoughts?

Good news. I just hope they can get a good writer on the series. 
I wonder if they'll still have ties to WWII.

They (as in DC) better...is all I have to say about that. You just don't revamp things to the point where you completely discard the grandfather of superhero teams. You just simply do not do it.

That makes me think they're going to write stories about the JSA in the past rather than them be old in the present.

@The_Tree:  I would be okay with that, and it would still leave room for all of the legacy characters.

Ug I was hoping the golden aged heroes of the JSA were gone for good or at least retconed.

So would I, I'd love to read stories, about when they were the top dogs of the DCU, and all of their members were alive.

@The_Tree: 
Don't want to bring anyone down here but DC talked about making Superman the first hero so I don't think they're going to make JSA in the WW2 setting.

Wasn't it stated that Superman was only the first public hero?

@The_Tree
I dont remember the exact wording but then that would mean they weren't known heroes.

@TheRedRobin: I'd be fine with them being seen as urban legends/myths.
 
@Or35ti: That's some tricky wording, when I read that, I didn't see it as them saying the JSA will be back on Earth-2, but them saying that the JSA will return, and Earth-2 will also make a return.

I hope CM returns.

To me it would be better if they were around but not as Superheroes.
Ted Grant could have been a great Boxing champ and own a gym but wasn't wildcat superhero. Wildcat could have been his ring name.
Jay Garrick could be mayor of the city flash is based in.
Things like that. 
Also one pet peeve that really bugs me.      Active during WW2 yet still walking around like they are only in their 50-60s. Bring them up in time a little.

I wouldn't be okay with that. At all. I want them back in the present.

Their aging process has slowed down thanks to Ian Karkull.

You want them as golden aged heroes? Or retconed as heroes of today?
 
I would rather have them on another earth then as heroes of the golden age.

I want them as heroes who fought in the second World War and are still alive today, kinda like we had in New Earth.

I can see why you like them but I was hoping to close that chapter more of a change,
A good compromise would be putting them on another earth. They can even take Captain Marvel with them.
Make them the heroes of that world instead of the JLA..

while i have never been a huge fan of JSA i am happy to hear that they are being redone on Earth-2. I was originally hoping yo keep it down to 1 earth for a couple of years but as long as they better coordinate and organize whats going on where and at what point in time with minimal multi-verse cross overs then i am ok with it.

That will also allow for Powergirl to be herself and for the Supergirl we all have come to know to stay her same peppy self.

I'm curious if they will have Earth-2 Superman and Lois.

I guess you've read DC : New Frontier.

If you want to see Ted Grant as heavyweight boxing champ, you should check New Frontier (only the comic book, not the movie).
