      Does anyone else think its getting ridcolous. I mean whats up with ginger the witch and her monkey? Theres seriously waay to many second stringers that should get the boot.

    Really? I really like it. You can do a lot with these characters in my opinion. To me, large rosters don't always mean you have to showcase them every issue. You can have some of them in one arc and the next you could have more of a focus on other ones. I can't wait for the new team to get on and tell some great stories.

Sure you CAN do a lot with these characters but Justice Society NEVER does. That's been one of their main problems all along. Look at characters like Sand and Jakeem who dissapear for several issues at a time and then reappear for two panels before dropping out again. They have been with the team since the begining of the new version and very little ever gets done with them. Adding all these other new characters just emphasizes how little they do with many characters they already have. Now the team is just unwieldy and you won't even be able to get everyone in the same room any more. This is a similar situation to what killed JSA: Classified. It was great that they had a title dedicated to showcasing individual members or small groupings but it got to be the same damn characters over and over again. Jakeem was in one single issue and Sand in none yet established, well developed characters like Wildcat and Green Lantern were turning up every other month. If Justice Society doesn't tighten up it's roster and story telling, it is going to be headed for cancelation city too.
