    Cassandra Cain (she doesn't need to be black bat or batgirl)
    I think she counts as a spinoff of Batman.

    She is but OP specifically stated male superheroes and not villains.

    With this requirement, who are your 6 heroines?
    I'll do ten members, as many past teams have been more than the big 7.

    Black Canary - Leader
    Wonder Woman
    Vixen
    Nightshade
    Starfire
    Fire
    Ice
    plus Martian Manhunter, Firestorm, and Batman

    The more I think about it Star Sapphire is an interesting character that could benefit from the growth she'd get in the JLA.

    I'd like any color of Lantern other than Green, actually. Earth has six plus Greens these days, and it's gotten boring.

    But probably counts as a derivative of a male hero, so not suitable for this particular thread.

    That's the letter of the law, not the spirit of the law.

    I was a little iffy on whether she would count as a derivative or not. Her history is kind of long and a little complicated.

    Derivative may be iffy, but I think "spin-off" is a slam dunk.

    Hawkgirl? She debuted in the same issue as Hawkman, so they need not be considered spinoffs of each other.

    Wonder Woman, Black Canary, and Vixen feel like a strong basis in any case. Raven and either Nightshade or Black Orchid can round out the team.

    actually, while Sheira debuted in the same issue, she didn't become Hawkgirl until a year later and based off Hawkman's design. In fact, IIRC she created her costume by literally taking one of Hawkman's spare ones. So she's definitely a derivative/spin-off character (though I personally like Hawkgirl more than Hawkman)
    SIGNAL/Duke Thomas is the Midnight Sun of Gotham (respect thread)
    John Stewart is my Lantern.
    Naomi was great, pass it on...
    DC: Batman and the Outsiders, Justice League, Teen Titans, Deathstroke, The Flash, Justice League Odyssey, Doomsday Clock
    Marvel: Immortal Hulk, Miles Morales: Spiderman, Black Panther, Ironheart, X-Men (2019), Venom, Avengers
    Anticipated titles: Far Sector, Love Army*, The Other History of DC*

    And worth noting is that All-Star Comics #15 showed a female Starman, Doctor Fate, and Spectre as well.



    Later revisited in Starman #69.
