> Okay, yesterday I was over on Marvel.com's boards and someone had started a trivia quiz thread. The first question on the list asked us to name the founding members of the JLA. As you might guess, this led to some heated disagreement. It occurred to me that there have been at least four different answers over the last few decades to the question of "Who were the Founders of the original JLA, way back when?"

Superman was part of this, too. He helped found the team, but didn't become a member.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "helped found the team" if he was not one of its early members. (I have read the Zero Hour-related story that first introduced us to Triumph, but it's been a heck of a long time and I don't remember it well.) Are you saying that he was part of a group effort against Appelaxians or something, but at the end of the group effort he wasn't one of the heroes who said, "You know, we ought to agree to make this a regular thing, so we can call each other for help when something really big comes up"? If that's approximately what happened, I wouldn't call him a founder.

Or are you thinking of something else?
