I wowuld like to see what Morrison would do, because he gave us a really neat version of "Flash of Two Worlds" that worked with the one-world concept without really destroying the original work laid down by the original creators.

But if we're looking at a new origin of the JSA, what would everyone suggest? I have some thoughts, but I'd be curious what other people think...

While I often have problems with Morrison's work, he is my single favorite Silver Age pastiche writer ever. I've never seen him do anything on the Golden Age, though it would be interesting.

I would go back to the Levitz original as much as possible. But rather than having the Atom revived from death by the Spectre (a tedious trick, as well as a gimmick that had already been done in the Silver Age), Superman's and Batman's involvement would be carefully rewritten to include the other characters who had prominent positions in ALL-STAR COMICS but who wouldn't be likely members of the JSA: Biff Bronson, Red White & Blue, and Hop Harrigan. Possibly also Ultra-Man if I couldn't think of any other way to duplicate Superman's last-minute bomb-stopping save.
