Were you a fan of the Silver Age JLA, in the mountain-side cave HQ? A satellite-era fan? Detroit League? Justice League Europe? Max Lord League of America? Superman League of America? Morrison League of America?

I go with the Satellite Era, mostly. As I posted in another thread below, it screamed "Justice League of America" to me. It usually affored "lesser-lights" like Aquaman, Atom, and Hawkman their share of the spotlight without ignoring Superman, Green Lantern, Flash, and Batman.

The stories were mostly cosmic in scope, with the League travelling to other worlds, and taking on foes who were too big to battle alone.

Your favorite(s)? \:\)

I forever will be a fan of the satellite era JLofA. That's when I started and that's where I finished back in the day.

Satellite Era all the way but I'll also always have a soft spot in my heart for the Detroit League. I thought it was just finding its footing when the plug was pulled. JLI was fun for a little bit but I stopped buying long before the end and with the Morrison run, well, I just have never gotten Morrison's standard super-hero fare. I thought his Animal Man and Doom Patrol were amazing but everything since just leaves me cold. This new JLA is cool because it has the Satellite flavor. I just wish there had been some actual stories to go with that.

I actually started off and on with the mountain-side HQ, but I, too, mostly grew up with the satellite. That era had EVERYTHING in it, too. I especially loved how different members could appear in another character's book if he/she had to go to the satellite for some research or somesuch.

For example, if Flash had to go to the satellite, Batman could make a cameo in the book, and help Flash out from the HQ. I always wsa fascinated by that aspect. \:\)

I think I kind'a liked the premise they were going for RIGHT before the Detroit League came into being, when they were going to ease out Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, and Green Lantern and just say those four were "busy" on other cases in their own books and couldn't appear in the JLA book.

I think they were planning to have each make appearances from time to time, but their involvement was going to be quite limited. If they'd done THAT, and slowly brought in a COUPLE of the Detroit Leaguers in, I think more fans would've been accepting of the change.

I know I would've been! \:\)

THAT'S WHERE THE Justice League began, and for me, that's where it ended.

I think the thing that REALLY turned me off when it came to the Fox/Sekowsky Era was Sekowsky's artwork. I mean, even the HEROES were ugly, IMO! I think Sekowsky may've reminded me somewhat of Wayne Boring, who I couldn't stand, either. Boring FINALLY started growing on me, but I STILL have some trouble seeing his artwork at times.

Fox's stories, although lacking in characterization (again, MY opinion) were TOP-NOTCH in plots. I loved the different space invasions and other worlds the JLA would face. \:\)

I found it to be a little more Bat-centric than I'd've liked, but overall, I found the stories to be quite enjoyable. \:\)
