    If it has to be set on the same earth as the main continuity, then a solid "NO" to all of them.

    If the JSA is on earth-2, or we're dealing with some other alternative reality, then a big fat yes to the Trinity, a "no, he can join Infinity later on" for Robin, and a solid "Don't care either way" for Arrow and Orin.

    Without.

    What's the point if you're just going to fill up the team with Justice Leagers?

    Without. Rather see Sandman, Dr. Midnight, Wildcat, Starman, Mr. Terrific, Dr Fate, Spectre, Red Tornado, etc

    If it's on Earth-2, they definitely should be there. They shouldn't get a whole lot of focus, because they get enough on the main Earth as it is, but they should be there. If for no other reason than for allowing Power Girl, Huntress and the Fury to exist.

    If they are on the main Earth, I'd have them take advantage of Superman and Wonder Woman's immortality and have them be members if they are hellbent on having the JSA tied to WWII. But they shouldn't be on the same Earth at all, IMO.

    They were Society members before they were Leaguers.

    I would say yes to Green Arrow and Aquaman if DC were canceling their comics. But they're not.

    Without, regardless of whether it's on the main Earth or Earth 2. The Trinity already get tons of attention, they don't need to steal it from the JSA too.

    On Earth-2? Certainly, though they don't have to be full-time members. Robin shouldn't be a member until he's an adult, IMO.

    They were originally members, or honorary members, on the old earth 2, so yes... I always liked that we got to see older versions of characters like Superman and Batman and I see no reason why they can’t still be around... That’s if we do get the original JSA and the original Earth 2 back, neither of which I’m very confident about at the moment.

    When I think of the Justice Society, these characters usually aren't the first few I think about.

    Some things to clear up regarding the JSA's pre-CoIE history:
    4. Robin: originally, the Boy Wonder was (sometimes?) said to be an honorary member of the JSA as well (along with Batman).

    However, the adult Robin gained full membership in 1967, almost 10 years prior to the "Super Squad".


    5. Aquaman was never a member of the JSA; I don't think the separate Earth-2 version of Aquaman was really established until All-Star Squadron in the 1980s.

    Without, please. They'd just feel redundant and out of place on the team to me now.

    If the JSA happened on a parallel Earth, then I like going back to having those other-Earth versions of Superman, Batman, Robin, and Wonder Woman having their pre-CoIE roles back similar to how they previously were.
    But if DC is shoving the history of the JSA back onto clutter-Earth, it doesn't make any sense.

    As for Aquaman and Green Arrow, they never really were a part of the JSA in the past and don't need to suddenly be now.
