Robinson's new JLA roster

Interesting line up, it seems the main theme is that the younger heroes are getting their shot in the BIG super hero team. A lot of Titans seem to have been promoted.
Im happy to see Ollie there and the Guardian is a cool pick, he has been the best part about Robinson's Superman run imo. But as interesting as the line up is I probabley wont be buying this book as I'm not loving the creative team at the moment.
What are you guys thinking about the roster? Happy, sad, surprised?

  3. Weird to think of this as the Justice League. Whenever the JLA starts to feature characters like Guardian, I can't help but think of the Jurgens era JLA, with Fire, Ice, Guy Gardner (yellow ring), Bloodwynd, and Booster Gold--shudder.

    I think Cyborg needs some more character development, so this could be good for him. Stafire, on the other hand, just needs to go away.

  4. "Stafire, on the other hand, just needs to go away." Kello, you stole the words right out of my mouth! Or keyboard I guess... I hate that Starfire is STILL hanging around Dick Grayson. Can't say I'm pleased to see Congorilla there either, I HATE talking monkeys!!! Other then that I'm really excited about this line-up.

    The fact that there isn't a Flash on the team(as Robert astutely pointed out)is kind of weird... You'd think with all the other Titans present, Wally West would be a perfect fit. Wally not being there makes me feel really uneasy... With so many Titans present on this team, I wonder what that means for the current Titans series.

    Other then that, I'm insanely psyched for this comic! Unlike you Matthew, I can't get enough of James Robinson's work. He's easily among my 5 current favorite writers, as well as one of my all-time favs.
