    As far as iconic JL female members it goes:

    1) Wonder Woman
    2) Hawkgirl
    3) Black Canary
    4) Zatanna
    5) Vixen
    It would be too difficult to do the math, but Iíd venture that Black Canary was in the most issues during the Satellite era which was, of course, the longest run by far. Iím guessing she appeared even more often than Wonder Woman then but, if not, she was #2. Hawkgirl was very rarely featured until the JL cartoons, but youíre right that sheís been #2 since then. Itís wild to see her featured so much more than Hawkman when the reverse was true for about 20 years.

    While I agree that Hawkgirl/woman is the number 2 female of the JL thanks to the animated series and a lot of outside media exposure, in terms of comic appearances in mainline JL books (JL, JLA) she places at number 3.

    1. Wonder Woman- 519
    2. Black Canary- 219
    3. Hawkgirl- 134
    4. Zatanna- 133
    5. Vixen- 104
    6. Fire- 79
    7. Jessica Cruz- 59
    8. Power Girl- 57
    9. Ice- 51
    10. Gypsy- 44

    However taking into account every JL book (JLI, JLD, JLE, JLTF, JLU...etc) as well as mini/maxi series, the list looks like this:

    1. Wonder Woman- 829
    2. Black Canary- 270
    3. Zatanna- 230
    4. Hawkgirl- 219
    5. Fire- 192
    6. Power Girl- 157
    7. Vixen- 152
    8. Ice- 152
    9. Gypsy- 100
    10. Jessica Cruz- 90

    I think it’s pretty interesting and I predict that in the future Hawkgirl will eventually overtake Black Canary and Zatanna in JL appearances while Jessica Cruz will enter the top 5, taking Vixens spot. DC doesn’t really use Gypsy, Ice, Fire or Power Girl that much anymore but they’ve racked up enough appearances to where their spots in the top 10 are secure (don’t see Crimson Fox or Dr Light getting any love either, and they’re the next two in number of most appearances).

    Rookie mistake, my dude. Writers who aren't Cooke should train you expect the worst with WW and the JL.

    Honestly if New 52 looks were more like this, I wouldnít have been mad at that. Really make each character stand out

    And Hawkwoman, and Elongated Man, and Red Tornado. (and Firestorm. But I'm fine without Firestorm. It could have stopped when Zatanna joined the team).

    PS: Anyway, it's an amazing piece by Paul Smith.

    My favourite lineup for the Justice league would definitely be:
    Batman
    Superman
    Wonder Woman
    The Flash (Barry Allen)
    Green Lantern (Jessica Cruz)
    Aquaman
    Martian Manhunter
    Shazam!
    Black Canary
    Black Lightning

    and for the movie I would've done the lineup like this:

    Batman
    Superman
    Wonder Woman
    The Flash (Barry Allen)
    Aquaman
    Black Lightning
    Martian Manhunter
