OK, the new Justice League of Canada team is actually called Justice League United, which will take place in both Canada and in outer space. Jeff Lemire and Mike McKone are working on the series which will begin in April. The members are Martian Manhunter (finally, my prayers are answered), Adam Strange, Hawkman, Green Arrow, Animal Man, Stargirl, Supergirl, and the Shannen Koostachin inspired First Nations girl. So, we now know instead of three former JLA members, we get four (namely Martian Manhunter, Hawkman, Green Arrow, and Stargirl).

The first storylines will involve Rann and Thanagar (so expect a lot of Adam Strange and Hawkman in these stories), while another involves Hawkman himself. There will be more characters joining the team (my big bets are Atom, Black Canary, Centrix, and Simon Baz Green Lantern) in the issues to come.

And, oh yes, Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman won't be part of the team. I doubt Aquaman, Flash, Hal Jordan Green Lantern, and Cyborg will be on the team as well. As for the remaining members (namely Catwoman, Katana, Simon Baz, and Vibe), I can see Catwoman returning to her shady past, Katana returning to the Birds of Prey, and I'm not too sure about Vibe since I never liked him. Personally, I'd like to see Simon Baz be the Green Lantern of the team. And I'd like to see the remaining members be replaced by Black Canary, Atom, and Centrix.

So here's to a new title created by Jeff Lemire and Mike McKone and a kick ass team of Martian Manhunter, Adam Strange, the First Nations girl, Hawkman, Green Arrow, Animal Man, Stargirl, and Supergirl. And maybe more.


I hear that Vibe may be moving into the Flash family soon. I'll note that Lemire wasn't misleading about who is joining the League from the old team... apparently Hawkman won't be joining until the team is established in the first arc. (Same for the new heroine. Glad she'll have someone her own age to talk to, honestly.)
