I have to admit that I will always have a fondness for the lineup I originally fell in love with...the hey day of the Satellite Era circa JL of A 200ish: Superman, Batman, Flash, Wonder Woman, Elongated Man, Green Lantern (John Stewart a little, Hal mostly), Aquaman, Zatanna, Firestorm, Green Arrow, Black Canary, the Hawks, Red Tornado, the Atom. The cast could be large at times, but they did a god job bring them into squads or just using smaller groupings. It was the first League I discovered, so I think that it will always hold a special place in the heart.

Second favorite would have to be the Giffen League at the time Booster joined: Batman, J'onn, Gardner, Black Canary, Dr. Light, Dr. Fate, Captain Marvel, Mr. Miracle, Blue Beetle, Booster Gold. It gets remembered for the humor, but when that first League came out I also teally like the line up. It had a neat mix of experienced Leaguers and newcomers and also a really good combo of powers and specialties (worldbeaters like Captain Marvel and J'onn, street level mixers like Bats and Beetle, energy projectors, supernatural heroes like Mr. Miracle and Fate). It was a fun mix that unfortunately gets lost in all the BWAH-HA-Has.

Man, that brings back memories for me. I loved that era as well. I can still recall the JLA/JSA team up around that time with the Ultra-Humanite's team getting ambushed and Batman's utterly awesome line:

"Please. Don't come quietly."

200 was an outstanding issue, and my first exposure to the Martian Manhunter. It left me wishing to see more of him and his brief appearance in Crisis made me mark out.

So I think any line up for me needs the Manhunter From Mars. I also like Green Arrow. The original Green Arrow, not the murderous whackjob we have now been subjected to. I think Batman is important as is Superman and Wonder Woman. Zantanna is a great addition and I welcome any incarnation of Firestorm. The Hal Jordan Green Lantern would round out the team.
