The one that started it all.
I'm amazed with all the love JLD has kept over the years. Yes...me included. I'm coming to terms with it believe me.I've held on to the books sice 1984. Geez.
I've went back recently and read a few comics here and there. While Steele will not be missed, I'm feeling bad for Vibe. He really didn't get a fair shot.In Justice League Annual 3 Green Arrow hits him. Come on....
Paco Ramone may have been one of those rare characters who took control of the writer and his part of the story. When that happens they ususally kill off the character. (i.e. Jason Todd)
Another thing I find curios is Gary Conway, the mastermind behind JLD ended up as a bigwig for "Law and Order."
So you'ld figure he wouldn't have sterotyped the character the way he did.

And Gypsy...running around the mean streets of Detroit barefoot.That says everything I feel about the character right there.

I did like Dale Gunn, resident groundskeeper/scientist/sharpshooter.
Kinda wonder where he is today.

Anyway here's an editorial from JLA Annual #2 and a pic from Jla Annual #3.

It was likely just timing, but I jumped off the JLofA ship at about the time of the great shift from the classic team to the Detroit team. So it wasn't until I returned to JLofAdom in the mid 90's that I went to back issue bins and filled in the story of the JLofA's most tragic line-up. I'll have to say that in the gleam of an historic view it was an interesting diversion, but it was all too easy to see that it wasn't anything that was going to last long. I liked Manhunter's increased role with the team and it was the best Aquaman stuff ever. That'll I'll give them credit for.

Vibe was hard to read and look at. I'm sensitive to his fans, but he was something of a trainwreck of a character, a trendy wannabe who was the Thunderbird of his day. This perhaps tells us what might've happened if they hadn't offed T-Bird in that famous X-comic. He'd just become Vibe. ;\-\)

I really liked Steel though, and I like that he's back today with the JSofA. Sorta'!
