I don't want the JLA to turn into a JSA type thing with 30 or 40 members, but right now I really like the additions of Hawkwoman, Vixen, Geo-Force, and Black Lightning. McDuffie is doing a fine job with these characters.

Yeah, I DON'T want the League to be as big as LOSH or JSA, either. I think as long as they have less than 20 active members, the team should be okay.

> As far as Red Arrow goes, yes he should definitely be in the League, as Red Arrow. No question in my mind. This is Roy finally growing up and coming into his own, as Dick did when he became Nightwing. After all, we know right now that Oliver will be joining Hal in the second League that will be forming after Final Crisis, so Roy will not be redundant. Even were this not the case, Oliver's being alive doesn't automatically mean he should go back to being a full-time Green Arrow or a full-time League member. Were he not going to be in the upcoming new JLA, which I am very much looking forward to, I wouldnt even mind seeing Oliver take a break and do the civilian thing for a while.

I'd say Red Arrow has a ways to go yet. Do all the Leaguers trust that he WON'T have a relapse of his drug addiction? Have they touched upon that yet?

And I'm against Arrow and Lantern forming a new team. Teams should be made of solo heroes and new characters. The League should be an HONOR, one that isn't taken lightly. A hero should be a member for life, serving in whatever capacity they can in certain circumstances. For example, if Arrow should lose an arm, he could still function on Monitor Duty in times of Crisis, acting as a liason for the membership.

> New characters are ok, but should be used sparingly. If you look at Busiek's Power Company, it really flopped. I think that this was because it mostly featured a buch of Busiek creations when DC fans would really have liked to see a new DC team made of some of the random, homeless established characters. I remember when Firestorm and Powergirl showed up in that book, and I thought, "Man, this book would have been better had they been in it from the beginning". Over in the Outsiders book I see the same problem. The two new female characters, Grace and the other lightening girl, are not at all interesting to me, and they take up valuable page space.

I'm against new members in the League for pretty much the reasons you stated above. There was a teenage girl who joined JLE at one point, causing me to scratch my head in amazement. IMO, it was one of the most BORING periods in the League's life.

I hear that! Towards the end of the JLA/JLI/JLE run and then the WW/Infinity INC stages were quite sad. The League should be the best and the brightest. If you have never been on the Super Friends or the first 2 seasons of JL, somebody better have a darn good reason for including you! Even then, some of you better not go there (Wendy, marvin, Zan, Jayna, goofy Batman--I'm looking at you all!). Gimme Batman, Supes, WW, Flash, the top-tiered GL, Aquaman, Hawks, GA, BC, Red Tornado, Zatanna, Black Lightning, Elongated Men...in fact gimme the satelite era and their modern day analogs (ALL OF THEM) and few others.

The problem with that is that the League has always worked better for me with a Rookie on the team as well, whether its Zatanna, Firestorm, Booster Gold, or Wally and Kyle. So you need that role of heavy hitter rookie on the cusp of hitting the big time. The problem is sorting out your Firestorms from your Mayas, Blue Devils, Beefeaters, Azteks,etc
