    Quick update to my post:

    +The core roster will be Adam Strange, Alanna Lewis, Equinox, Animal Man, and Stargirl.
    +Poison Ivy, Mera, Swamp Thing, and Etrigan are going to be temporary members and the roster will have constant changes.
    +Jeff Parker will write the comic.
    +Travel Foreman will do the art.
    +No variant for issue #11.
    +Supergirl will be off the team "for now." In other words, there is a possibility she will return sooner or later.
    +Martian Manhunter, Green Arrow, and Hawkman are also off the team, but I would like to see them return, too.

I am happy to see Jeff Parker as Lemire's replacement, less happy with the fluctuating menmbrship however.
I have heard Supergirl will be going into hibernation pending the results of the television series so perhaps that is unavoidable, but why the book should lose Green Arrow and Jonn Jonzz I dont know. Any book that can be mucked about with like this is on rocky ground in my view.

    My opinion of the new team:

    While I like Adam Strange, Alanna, Equinox, Animal Man, and Stargirl, I'm not too crazy about the newcomers. However, I like the fact that a couple of redheads are joining a mostly blonde team. Of the four, I'm looking forward to seeing Mera the most since she's my most likely choice. Poison Ivy, on the other hand, is like putting Catwoman in Justice League of America. I'm against adding a former Batman villain to a Justice League. If it were up to me, I'd say I'd add Batgirl or Batwoman. Hey, even Katana would get my vote.

I agree. Batwoman really isn't a team player but I still like the idea of her making a brief tour nontheless... Barbara Gordon makes more sense. Better yet Black Canary - if only she wasn't shackled to Birds of Prey. But it depends on what character function you are looking for, is JL United an ideal place to reintroduce Firehawk, Shining Knight, Looker, Air-Wave?
