Tons of people are doing this, so I decided to try.

This is what I'm rebooting.
Same origin... with a twist. Kryptonians are at war with Thanagarians. Jor-El, a Kryptonian soldier, decides to send his son away in an escape pod before the war gets worst. A few days after Kal-El lands on Earth, a Thanagarian death-ray destroys the planet. Kal-El is raised by John and Martha Kent. They raise him to be good, and when he discovers his powers he finds out the truth. "Clark" finds the escape-pod he came to Earth in, and inside is a Kryptonian soldier uniform. You guessed it, that becomes his costume. He finds a message from his father, Jor-El, inside the pod. It says Clark is the last Kryptonian, and he has to take care of the new world he had landed on so it isn't destroyed like Krypton. With some training and a super-name, BAM! You've got yourself Superman.
Sort of the same origin... except some conspiracy with his dad. His father, Thomas Wayne, was secretly involved with the mafia. Joe Chill, an assassin, was hired to "take care" of Thomas Wayne after he got into big trouble. As Batman, Bruce seeks to stop all crime in Gotham after learning the truth about his father.
Princess Diana, the daughter of Hippolyta, was raised as a warrior. Her home, Themyscaira, was a popular target of the evil Ares, god of war. When ever Ares attacked, Diana led other Amazon warriors to battle to deffend there home. One day, Ares had a plan. He cast a spell on Diana that gave her amnesia, and then he brought her far away (to L.A., to be exact) from Themyscaira. Ares summoned an army of evil beasts to help him attack Themyscaira. In L.A., Diana woke up in the hospital. She remembered her name, Diana. She decided to start a new life as Diana Prince. She met (and fell in love with) Steve Trevor, but she soon got her memory back and returned to her home to fight Ares. She came back to L.A. to continue her life, and started protecting L.A. from evil under the name "Wonder Woman."
An Atlantean teenager, Atlanna, managed to sneak out to the surface. She fell in love with Tom Curry. Every night she managed to sneak away from Atlantis to meet him. One day they got married, and she had to reveal to him she was Atlantean. They had two twins. Tom named the first one "Arthur". Atlanna named the second one "Orm"", after her great grandfather. Atlanna one day had to return to Atlantis to help when they were attacked by sea monsters. Orm and Arthur never got to know her. At school, Orm was picked on because of his name and his love for fish. Arthur often stood up for Orm and got in trouble for hurting the bullies who picked on Orm. One day, Tom decided to tell them the truth... there mom was an Atlantean. Orm ran away and Arthur went to find him. Arthur found him at the beach, crying. The two brothers made a promise that day. They'd always be there for each other. When Atlanna came back to the surface, she took Orm and Arthur to Atlantis with her. Thats when they discovered they could breathe underwater. It was all fun until the sea monsters returned to Atlantis. Atlanna was killed in front of the two boys. They got back to the surface before they were killed, too. The boys never spoke of there abilities, mom, or traumatic visit to Atlantis for years, until one day Tom went missing. He was last seen going boating with his friends, leaving the boys with there aunt. The boys ran off to the beach and went to find there dad. They couldn't find him at all. They decided they should go down to Atlantis. Down there, they were attacked by sea-monsters. The monsters took Orm away, but Arthur got away. Arthur went to find Orm. He met Orm in an underwater land full of monsters. The monsters made Orm there king. They all reffered to him as "The Ocean Master". Arthur tried to get Orm to come home with him, but Orm refused. The two had a huge argument, which resulted in a fight. During that fight, Orm finally snapped. He tried to kill Arthur. Arthur got away, leaving behind Orm. Thats when Orm was confronted by his aunt. His aunt told him she knew about his mom. She said to Arthur that his dad was actually part of a scuba-diver group searching for Atlantis, calling themselves "The Aquamen". She even showed him Tom's old uniform. Arthur used the uniform (without the scuba equipment) to find his brother. He spent every day searching for his brother, as... the Aquaman.
This JL starts out as just Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Batman, and Superman, who form when Ocean Master threatens the surface world. They use there combined powers to defeat Ocean Master's army of sea-monsters. Aquaman and Superman, the only members able to breathe underwater, confronted Ocean Master and defeated him. Ocean Master was taken into custody, and the JL briefly disbanded. The second version of the team is Green Lantern, The Flash, Martian Manhunter, Aquaman, and Superman.
Basically the same origin, except a couple differences:
Hal is not an air plane pilot, he's an astronaut.
The power ring creates constructs based on confidence and imagination rather then bravery and willpower.
