Subj: Love The Top Banner

I saw the banners for this week and I must say they are delightful. But the one that caught my attention was the first one. As a fan of the Satellite Era, I must say it was the best pre-New 52 roster. Having such heavyweights as Aquaman, Atom, Batman, Black Canary, Elongated Man, Firestorm, Flash, Green Arrow, Green Lantern, Hawkman (with Hawkgirl in tow), Martian Manhunter, Red Tornado, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Zatanna working together was a blast and I wish it could be revived in the New DC Universe. However, there were a few downsides to the roster:

1. Seeing that it's called the Justice League of America, the team was entirely white. They should have added someone of color, especially Black Lightning.

2. Another character that should have joined was Metamorpho, seeing that he said no in 1966.

3. Phantom Stranger's position in the roster was unclear. Was he a member or not?

4. Why did it have to be picked up by JL Detroit? Why couldn't the comic end in 1984 or the JLA continue after the Martian War?

5. Snapper Carr should have returned as the mascot. He would have been spending time with Sue Dibny.

6. They should have added another female like Black Orchid.

7. Adam Strange should have been a member.

And that's all I have to say about that.
