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.

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

I'll give you Wally, but Z and Firestorm both functioned as "New Kids on the Block" when they came on to the team--which, honestly for me, is a good thing.

> Kyle gets in because he succeeded the previous Green Lantern, and I'm STILL not convinced Booster Gold was a good idea for a SERIOUS League.

I actually think that that is why Booster should have been on a seriouss League. In his own book (first run) he had a serious arc from well-intending guy hoping to make a buck while doing good, to someone who has seen the cost that true heroism demands. For me, it would have been neat to see Booster come onto a serious League and for people to treat him as the shyster materialist when he really was a true hero at heart. Have Superman J'onn or someone see his true nature and sponser him, and then let Booster when over the rest. That could be cool!

I remember how it was when Zatanna joined, and I think that was a mistake. She'd worked with several of the Leaguers separately and as a team. She was pretty far from bein' any kind of rookie.

Booster WOULD'VE fit in once the League saw his true nature. Unfortunately, his true nature was shown to be "greed", so Superman's dislike was somewhat justified.

If they'd let him mature, he would've been a better character.
