    We're even farther from the Old West, yet we still like cowboy movies and western TV. And ditto other, even further events. In fact, there are still actual war stories from WWII that haven't AFAIK been told in movie format or even comic book format, such as the greatest underdog victory ever, the story of Taffy 3. Or the PQ convoys. I think a well written comic book featuring the JSA during the war as mystery men doing mostly covert missions with a mix of bigger superhero stuff to counter fantastical Nazi threats could be great. It all depends on execution. And as villains you can show no quarter to and hiss at without reserve, it's hard to beat Nazis.

    It would be a period piece set in the 1940s. And for marketing reasons (due to character duplication) it would have JSA: as a prefix on the title. It would be a sister book to a present day set Justice Society of America series, and obviously Flash, Green Lantern, and Wildcat would be in both. Stories that happen to the ASS would have consequences for the modern JSA.

    Period piece or just picking up where Roy left off.

    Then a JSA series in the present.

    And an All Star Comics for anthology or just rotating cast or focusing on a single member for an arc, kinda like JSA classified.

    Then maybe fans will feel satisfied after having most of the characters in limbo for a whole decade.

    I'd pick up where Roy Thomas left off. Seriously. Golden Age Earth 2 and all. A few things I'd like to see:


    1.) An all female hero team-up with Liberty Belle, Firebrand, Wonder Woman, Hawkgirl, Phantom Lady, Red Tornado, Miss America, Fury, and Tsunami.

    2.) An all sidekick team-up, possibly leading to an Earth 2 Teen Titans) featuring Robin, Dyna-mite, Speedy, Sandy, Fury, & Little Boy Blue.
    Currently Reading: Crime Syndicate, Infinite Frontier, Justice League/Justice League Dark, Sensational Wonder Woman, Suicide Squad, The Other History of the DC Universe, & Wonder Woman.

    Yes, but I'd expand it to something broader. Include some "untold stories" of the golden age characters, perhaps as the backup feature if you run it as a split book. That also gives you an opportunity to do stories with a more diverse cast, by featuring new characters that you claim were "dwelling in the background" back in the day, mainly focusing within their own communities, and generally "ignored by the media" of their time.

    Set it in modern day, with a new team made up of well-known and lesser-known characters, who go after super-powered extremist factions within the US. Because in the DCU, you know a-holes like White Dragon and the Ayran Brigade are proliferating.

    76 years after the end of World War II, there is once again a need for heroes to fight against greater terror foreign and domestic. As chaos and hatred engulfs the world, the President has decided it is well past time to reform... the All-Star Squadron!

    If I were given the power to get an All-Star Squadron project rolling, my first call would be to secure Roy Thomas as writer/editor. Second call? Jerry Ordway for art. From there, I'd step out of the way and let these two legends work their respective magic.

    Works for me. Let Roy pick up where he left off, complete with Earth-2 Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, etc.

    Here's the thing that I would do: I would ignore the DCU. Because, to be honest, is there a single person on the planet that could honestly tell you where things stand with each character, considering all of the reboots and retcons? So, I think jumping right in where Roy Thomas left it would be a great place to pick it up. And, if they did so and it became a hit (which it might), they could issue omnibuses that started with the original stuff and just jumped right into the new series, and they would sell well because the All-Star Squadron was something that had the ability to sell, even if it was a repackaging of stuff from 30+ years ago (because that old stuff was actually the GOOD stuff!!!).
