glad you liked the issue a hope you enjoyed jlu7:)

Thank you. The thing about Justice League United is that it contains my three favorite members of the Justice League of America, namely Hawkman, Green Arrow, and Martian Manhunter. I'm glad all three of them stayed on the team. However, I was not too sure about Stargirl being on the team. I always wanted her to emigrate to Earth-2, but since Jeff Lemire picked her to be on the team, I accepted her to be with J'onn, Ollie, and Carter. She is also the closest to Cindy Reynolds in the New 52.

I was expecting Simon to be on the team since Canada was near his home in Michigan, but it appears that he was needed more on Earth. I never liked Vibe and I thought Katana would be a bad fit for this Canadian-based team (at first, I wanted her to be on the team, but I decided the best three returning characters were Hawkman, Green Arrow, and Simon Baz). It's a shame we don't see much of Tatsu, Cisco, and Simon these days. Maybe they could all retire as super heroes.

Now for the newcomers. I'm glad they made Adam Strange a Canadian and I enjoyed Animal Man's interactions with Green Arrow. Perhaps when Hawkman returns to the team, the three can be the Three Amigos of the Great White North. Supergirl, like Stargirl, was unexpected, but I'm thrilled she is on the team. I'm glad Jeff ditched Catwoman and replaced her with someone more heroic. Finally, Equinox is a fantastic character. Being the only minority of the team, she is a welcoming addition to the storylines. If only Lemire can do a stand alone issue where Miiyahbin, Kara, and Courtney have a slumber party while J'onn, Adam, Ollie, Carter, and Buddy fight in the Great White North.

While I like the group, I was hoping Lemire would add a few more members. Perhaps the most appropriate would be the Atom, whom Lemire reintroduced in the pages of Batman/Superman #10. Let's face it, both Green Arrow and Hawkman are on the team and it would be nice to put in the Atom as well since 5/8ths of the team are blondes and Ray Palmer is a redhead. Also, I'd like to see Atom interact with Hawkman. Another good choice is the Black Canary. With Birds of Prey cancelled, Justice League United would be the perfect team for Dinah. I'd also like to see her interact with Ollie and form a relationship. A final reason I want to see Dinah aboard is because there are three teenage girls on the team and five grown men. Put in Dinah and she'd be a mentor to the girls.

I'm looking forward to Justice League United #7, when we continue the Infinitus Saga.
