    I'm gonna wait and read next week's Hawkman to see how Vendetti would handle the JSA, but I think that maybe he could do a good work with them.

    Or else we'll be always depending on the return of Johns or Robinson or Levitz and so on. The same guys responsible for the current situation the team is at.
    Johns has been stalling the JSA's return since forever due to his Rebirth/Doomsday Clock plans.
    Levitz wrote terrible versions of PG and Huntress and hasn't written anything truly good in years.
    Robinson was the writer behind the New 52 Earth-2 book (plus tons of terrible JL books before that).
    I think they've all had their chance and now we need someone new for a change.
    Now that I think about it, this is true. Still, I hope whoever it is doesn't try to "fix" or "improve" the JSA. Just write their characters, and give them a certain feel, perhaps a bit less grim than the JLA, and go with it.

    Ah, it was Eric Trautmann who wrote JSA vs Kobra, and Gena Ha on art. I quite liked both. I'd like to see how they can do with another JSA story, perhaps emphasizing other JSAers than Mr. Terrific, who I thought he got right.

    Shayera in her costume kind of stands out with everyone else, but cool seeing the JSA and ISA .

    I’m not sure to what extent in continuity the JSA are after Death Metal, Hawkman, and Flash, but I will say I am happy that today’s Batman #104 makes it canonical that Wildcat trained Batman to fist fight. I honestly really enjoyed that part of Batman: the brave and the bold cartoon so I’m happy to see that here.

    Well, pre Flashpoint he was also trained by Wildcat, so it's not that big a step. Wildcat seemed to teach a lot of heroes to box prior to Flashpoint. But I'm getting a bit tired of waiting for DC to remember they even exist. That title should be their priority, but not a hint of a hint of a possible new JSA book at the farthest point on the distant horizon that they've revealed anything about yet.

    Wildcat also trained Catwoman.

    I don't know what extent its canonical (is that a word?) either but given that BATMAN/WILDCAT was one of my favourite minis of the late 90s (1997 IIRC) I'm glad to see Ted and Bruce's history acknowledged

    I love the JSA as they have been in their most recent series (not the nu52 stuff). However, I expect a writer to want to "fix" and/or "improve" what they are writing. The issue is that the writer does not change the concept in a way we like. Every franchise and concept out there has some parts of it that are musts. Although we can mostly agree on this, defining those points exactly is up to interpretation. I would hope that if DC comes up with a new JSA book, that writer would want to not copy what went before. They should also not settle for "almost as good". And yes, that is much more difficult to pull off than it seems.

    The JSA is one of those teams where it's easy to get all their voices/characters wrong if you're just going by archetype. Sad to say, you need to be pretty well-versed in DC history to get them "right," which is why most don't.

    I mean, Ted probably gives everyone on the JSA, young or old, a few pointers .

    Ted: ... And then you punch them real hard.

    Pieter: Ted, I'm blind.

    Ted: ... Have you tried punching that problem?

    Pieter: No, Ted, I haven't. It's not that kind of problem.

    Ted: How's your footwork?

    Pieter: Ted.

    Ted: Pieter I don't know why you come to me for combat training can we just get a beer?


    And then they listen to boxing matches on the radio while drinking a brew and discussing CTE.

    He did teach PG to box, leading Magog once to complain about her feet leaving the floor, (a reference to her ability to fly, when Magog was boxing her). A minor amusing moment. But...how did Wildcat teach PG how to box, and how did she learn Krav and Thai boxing....given that to properly learn them, you have to spar....and who is PG going to spar with? Only Diana among the super-super set is fast and strong enough and good enough to spar with, and she is busy doing other things.
