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.

For me, it would have to be the Satellite Era team. The members were very diverse and everyone seemed to like it. If I had to write the JLA comic, here's my choice of characters:

1. Superman
2. Batman
3. Wonder Woman
4. Flash (Barry)
5. Green Lantern (can alternate between Hal and John)
6. Martian Manhunter
7. Aquaman
8. Green Arrow (Ollie)
9. Atom (Ray)
10. Hawkman
11. Black Canary
12. Plastic Man (I'd choose him over Ralph)
13. Red Tornado
14. Zatanna
15. Firestorm
16. Black Lightning
17. Vixen
18. Blue Beetle
19. Captain Atom
20. Booster Gold
21. Steel (John)
22. Rising Sun (needs at least one Asian member)
23. Captain Marvel
24. Gypsy (I have a soft spot for her)

No Paco or Hank. I'd keep them dead if I were you. The reason I picked Rising Sun is because Fire, Ice, and Tasmanian Devil joined and he's a good candidate for the League. Maybe if there is space, I'd add Olympian, Jack O'Lantern, Seraph, and Godiva as well.
