Thanks for posting your thoughts (I don't mean that sarcastically even if it reads like it!) now let me share a few of my own:
As a fan of the character since Geoff Johns invented her I am really looking forward to seeing Lemire's take on Stargirl. I hope there's a little more to Courtney then the character has shown in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA.
I am also loving Lemire's Ollie Queen (GREEN ARROW hasn't been tis good in nearly a decade, yes I have been reading comics that long!0 and I am most excited to see what role he plays on the team.
I've been a J'onn J'onzz fan since Grant Morrison wrote him in the early 2000s and I'm sure he will be team leader (I hope so at least).
Hawkman is not a character I have ever been particularly fond of but we can't have a whole team of good characters so I'll deal with his membership. I kind of feel the same about Adam Strange, neither of them are characters I *hate* I am just not as fond of them as I am many other characters in the DCU.
Equinox has the potential to be interesting, I just hope not to much emphasis is placed on her race. It would be unfortunate if she became the representative token character of the team and nothing more.
Oops, I nearly forgot Animal Man! Buddy is a character I have a lot of time for and I particularly enjoyed him in 52 and in his Vertigo series by Grant Morrison.
As for characters I'd like to see added to the roster, there are a few which I will list below:
1) Black Canary - I know that DC wanted to establish Ollie and Dinah as seperate characters in the NEW 52 before the inevitable meeting of the 2 but I think the time has come for them to meet.
2) Blue Devil - I loved his appearance in DC PRESENTS and it would be a shame to lose him to limbo!
3) Roy Harper - Basically, I want the character *away* from Jason Todd and Starfire because that's the only chance he has of being interesting now and I think it would be interesting to see Roy and Ollie on a team together (8without8 the spectre of drugs which used to hang over their relationship)
4) Cassandra Cain - I'd love to see her introduced in the NEW 52 and I think Lemire would write her well (based on his writing of Shado!)
5) Blue Beetle - Its criminal that Jaime (or Ted) is not being used and I'd like to see Courtney have someone closer to her own age (assuming we went with Jaime) to relate to!
Finally, before I forget, to answer your question on the remaining JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA members I can tell you that Katana will be appearing in GREEN ARROW at least for a few months, Simon Baz will be appearing in GREEN LANTERN and, as you say, Catwoman has a role in her BATMAN ETERNAL and her own solo series.
Vibe (and if you don't like him I can only assume you didn't read his excellent series!) is the only one who I don't know where they will be appearing next but it would be nice to see him involved in MULTIVERSITY IMO.
The reason Simon can't join the Canada team is because of the deal Hal made with Guy and the Red Lanterns which allows Simon to be the ONLY G.L on earth but he can't leave earth 9which we know this team will do!)
