Justice League

One of the hottest subjects to talk about is Justice League; it may be because it is one of the greatest stories published by DC Comics, it could be because the Justice League: Mortal film is out in 2013 or it could be because superheroes are the biggest trend at the box office and at fancy dress retailers. There are various origins of the League, but the most popular origin told is a story of alien warriors coming to Earth competing to see who would conquer the world first. Attacks from the aliens, Appelaxian drew the attention of many superheroes.

These superheroes were Superman, Batman, Flas, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, Aquaman and Wonder Woman. Each and every superhero managed to fight off many encounters with the aliens, but failed to accomplished one mission; it was only if they worked together as a team that they could relieve Earth from any attacks.

Justice League or Justice League of America or JLA as they are also known as has increased in size since their first appearance in the ever so popular DC Comics. The founding members, stated above first appeared in The Brave and the Bold #28, but it wasn’t until Justice League of America #4 came out where you saw the team start to steadily grow.

The 1960s recruits included Green Arrow, Atom, Hawkman and Black Canary. In the 1970s the Justice League once again expanded this time using the powers of Phantom Stranger, Elongated Man, Red Tornado, Hawkgirl and Zatanna. Since then the Justice League team was split into several groups, some of which were; Justice League America, which was led by none other than Wonder Woman, justice League Task Force, led by Martian Manhunter and Extreme Justice, which was led by Captain Atom. New recruits to the Justice League has carried on with the latest recruits coming from year-long comic book limited series Justice League: Generation Lost, which sees the introduction of Blue Beetle and Rocket Red #7.
