While I'm sure most readers would agree we have more than plenty members in the JSA right now I would still like to see some story lines invlving the following characters... does anyone agree or disagree?

1. Danette Reilly - My most favourite member of the All Star Squadron, Grandmother to Atom Smasher - She has hardly appeared in years and while its been illuded that she was killed in battle its never been confirmed....I'd like to see some more on Danette and perhaps even the introduction of her granddaughter as the new Firebrand...

2. Helix members Penny Dreadful and Tao Jones - Last seen in Wonder Woman 175 I think...It would be good to see whats happening with these characters - both had alot of potential...

3. Hazard - As the gamblers grand daughter Hazard was never really a villian - infact her timely intervention saved Stripsey and his son and most of Infinity Inc toward the end of their main series - What happened to her after that?

4. Villiany Inc - i think they weould be a great team of Villians to battle the JSA - their appearance in Wonder Woman made them and interesting assortment of misfits...

5. Rose and Thorn - in the revised Infinite Crisis universe could she have some sort of link to the original Thorn ?

6. Jonni Thunder - What ever happened to her?

7. Mayflower - though now dead was her connection to Jade and Obsidian ever really investigated...

1.) Sadly, Danette was at least strongly implied to have suffered a terrible fate at the hands of the Dragon King in Stars and STRIPE. Apparently, she left no children.

2.) Tao Jones was actually referenced in Meltzer's JLA... Black Lightning has been running her as an informant on the Society's ativities... she has been working with them and feeding Jeff information because she needs the money to pay for her mother's cancer treatments.

3.) Hazard has had precious few appearances since then. I THINK she was in Wonder Woman #175, but otherwise, nothing. I just hope Roulette didn't kill her, or her cousin, the third Gambler didn't do away with her.

4.) Villany Inc. would be a great JSA opponent, I agree.

5.) I'd enjoy seeing Thorn I and II connected myself. Possibly even toss Black Thorn from Vigilante in as well.

6.) She lost all her powers, as her Thunderbolt was a hostile alien? Last seen at SSK's funeral, I believe.

7.) Mayflower's connection to Jade and Obsidian was something I had completely forgotten... but, since replicas of her peers had popped up as enforcers for SHADE in Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters, perhaps that's still something that can be done. Plus, y'know, crossover with Uncle Sam!

Sounds good! I thought she was a big part of the All Star Squadrons backbone along with Liberty Belle and given the legacy those members have had it seems most odd she has had not a mention in the modern JSA.

While i think Dannette would be way too old by now to be of any particular story interest I see no issue in digging up either a long lost grand-son/daughter or other family relative at this point as we've seen Ted Grant, Terry Sloane & Steel have been revealed as having extended and previously unmentioned families! This is what the JSA is about after all.

I'm not too bothered. Helix were weirdly wonderful and eccentric but like the Force of July they're of their time and of limited potential.

No idea, I had thought initially she was Roullette but given their similarities I really don't think we'll ever see Hazard again...

Sure, though given we loosely have an Injustice Society they might be a little redundant...

I have wondered that myself but really i'd be more interested in exploring Alan Scotts relationship with the original Thorn and his children, there have been allusions over the years there might be much more going on than was thought - I remember for example Stargirl commenting to Billy Batson in the runup to #50 how hard to believe it was that Alan knew nothing about his childrens existence etc. That seemed to be a deliberate subplot Johns was setting up but was never picked up on....

Depowered, but even retooled not sure what she could offer the JSA anyway, she was created to be a revised modern version of Johnny Thunder and that vacancy is filled by Jakeem now. She's therefore redundant, in the same way Sylvester Pemberton or Yolanda Montez are...
