Justice Leagues changes

April brings changes to at least two of the Justice League teams based in the 21st Century, if not all of the three.

Here is an overview of the changes:


 Luthor and Captain Cold join the team.  Apparently Firestorm and Superman leave the team.

My take:  Atomica has already betrayed the team. So we have a Red Tornado like betrayal.. or do we?  She was a Crime Syndicate mole.  My thoughts are that the two new members will either betray the team, or have methods that don't agree with the other members. We will see how it all plays out.

MEMBERSHIP (Based on the press so far): Captain Cold, Batman, Wonder Woman, Luthor, Shazam, Cyborg, Aquaman,

Not enough has been let out if the membership still has Firestorm and Superman. Johns rarely disappoints me with his books so we are in for a ride.


 Moving to Canada. Adding a couple new members. Apparently losing Baz and Catwoman.  They are going into space.

Martian Manhunter, Adam Strange, Stargirl, Supergirl , Green Arrow, and Animal Man and Hawkman. And they are adding others to include a native american woman.

My Take:  

1.  Moving this Justice League out of America and into to space was a good idea. 

2,  Bringing in Adam Strange and making him something other than American was also a great idea. Putting him in a team gives him more chances to have other stories rather than the zeta beam ones he used to have.

3 The change of Locals, Space and Canada,  was something this book needed.  It got to be too much like a Suicide Squad for heroes.

We will see if this makes the book more fun to read.


The team already has almost a new membership during Forever Evil. Swamp Thing, The Nightmare Nurse, Phantom Stranger, Pandora, and The Question joim Constitine and Deadman.  I like the current line up, but I liked the one they had in place as well.

It doesn't sound like there will be too many changes in April, but I could be wrong.

Those are my thoughts and I am sticking to them.

Go Forth and Do Well
