My Justice League

It's always talked about, who would you put in the Justice League if it were up to you? It's the ultimate fun topic to discuss. And why not, it's YOU who are in charge of deciding the ultimate super hero team. You have a say in the perfect assembly of hero's that will save the world from the evil threats of the world. How cool is that?!?!

What I have done is carefully examined possible candidates for my league, weighed their powers and the character traits against being able to work within the constraints of a team. I understand that a lot of characters are brought in to the league to help create a sense of angst and tension, but I think with a good writer on board, that can happen no matter whose on the team. So I'm going purely based on the compatibility of the league.

With that being said, I would now like to announce to the blogging world who, if it were up to me, would be in the Justice League! Please, if you have weak constitutions, I suggest bracing yourself for one heck of a line up.....

Black Canary
She has proven herself to be a valuable leader in the current league (or lack there of) and is not afraid to put teammates in their place when out of line. Thanks Brad Meltzer, I don't think I'll ever be able to see the Justice League without This powerful female ever again.

Red Tornado
This hero has been beaten up, torn apart, mangled, battered and pummeled...Yet he keeps coming back just as strong as before. Along with his interesting storyline, this hero has made a mark for himself in the Justice League history books. And being an android allows him that special ability to calculate things logically better and more intelligently than humans can typically do.

Wonder Woman
An indisputable member for the Justice League. This famous hero is an essential part of the history of the league and it would not be the same without her. She is great at being a team player, working with those who disagree with her, and has no fear. She is the strongest and most intelligent member on my league line up.

I have always said it, the brief time that Bloodwynd was in the league was incredible! And he for some strange reason disappeared. his magical abilities are a crucial element for the league in those strange times where the unexplained threats need the mysterious hero figure. And even though he was very much a loner, he still acted as a team player and did what he could to assist the league.

Green Arrow
He may be old, but he sure packs one hell of a punch. If there was ever a hero who was the central core of a strike force, Green Arrow is that hero. Along with his light hearted, sarcastic nature, he provides a sharp shooters eyes that can pin point a centipede 400 miles away. It's nice to have an accurate archer on your team, don't you think?

The Atom
My answer for not having Batman in the league. The Atom is an even better scientist than the Caped Crusader. But not only that, He is able to shrink himself down to the size of an atom...maybe even smaller! Very helpful for those tiny, tiny, TINY situations in which a man who can change his size could be invaluable.

Plastic Man
Someone who can stretch his body out as far and long as he wants, into any shape he can imagine, seems to be a no brainer as a member of the league. And because of his elastic form, there isn't a whole lot out there that can hurt him. He provides a very needed comic relief for the team.

With the ability to call upon the strength, power, speed, agility, endurance, character traits and stamina of any animal or insect in the world, I find Vixen to be a much needed addition to the league. Many times, the league requires an individual who has the ability to quickly change abilities in order to achieve a victorious outcome.

Power Girl
I have as much respect for Power Girl as I do Wonder Woman. She is not someone you want to push around. With most of the abilities of Superman, she would be this version of the leagues power house.

Even though Dick Grayson has taken up the Batman Mantle, this is definatly someone I could see in the league. He is not as independent as Batman, nor as stubborn. Every team needs a detective, and Dick Grayson is definitely that. Trained by Batman, Nightwing would be a great addition to the league.

Now I realize that there are two hero's that I'm sure you are wondering why I didn't put in my league line up. Superman and Batman. Well, to be perfectly honest, I don't feel that they belong in the League.

Superman, even though I can see him in the league, Is better left out. His ideals and set of principles is something the league can benefit from, however, Superman is very much a "attack now, ask questions later" type of guy. And even though I like having Superman in the league, I just don't think he is a good JLA material.

Batman, above everyone should NEVER be in the league. Batman is as stubborn as a mule and should never be allowed to be apart of a team like the Justice League. He goes behind team mates backs, he has his own way of doing things, and is much more of an independent hero than a team player. Batman's part in the league has and always will be the defiant hero who goes against the team on almost every occasion.

Anyways, that's my league. any thoughts? Comments? Disagreements? Let them be known.
