    Sinestro never made sense to me with an Earth-based team like this, TBH.

    I mean, neither do the other arches of the big name Leaguers either do taking orders from Lex or being afraid of a clown.

    Legion of Doom should be the arch nemesis' of all the main JLA
    So you have
    Luthor
    Joker
    Reverse Flash/Grodd/Etc
    Black Manta
    Cheetah/Giganta/Circe
    Sinestro


    basically any villains who will work together and conceivably give the JLA trouble together

    Pretty much everyone from the Challenge of the Super Friends cartoon.

    Honestly agree with this not mention the level of pride and arrogance he has.

    Iíd question it with Manta and Cheetah as well but given how Snyder wrote them in his JL run it made sense. They were their to serve their own interest and are using the group to their own agendas. Which Lex ofcourse understands. So it doesnít downplay any of them.

    I donít think it necessarily should be archenemies but I do think it should be characters that pose a threat and make sense to be on the team

    I don't see the Legion as being necessarily Earth-based anymore than the Justice League is.

    All of the Leaguers live on or grew up on Earth-- Sinestro didn't.

    Yeah, but they usually have a hero on their whose beat is space and get involved in extraterrestrial affairs, so I don't think it's altogether surprising that the Legion would have one member who covers space and matches up with GL.

    And that's why I think there should be a human GL villain who also regularly operates in space.

    Hm. Key.

    You want some major enemies of as many individual JL members as possible. Most of them have at least one, some have several. Exactly who really doesn't matter unless you want to be faithful to the toon (which, I admit, I love).

    Key, however, is probably a matter of who could assemble and propel such an organization. Further, such a council should be rife with scheming to use and betray each other, each with potential to pull their individual scheme off against the others. So:
    • Black Adam
    • Brainiac
    • Grodd
    • Luthor
    • Queen Bee
    • Ras al Ghul

    Is there anybody that would apply to? Black Hand, maybe, but I don't think they'd carry the weight Sinestro does and Sinestro has Super Friends cred.
