    Default If the (big 7) Justice league were to add an official 8th member who would it be

    I think It would be Zatanna. Magic-user seems to be the role sorely missing from most versions of the league.

    I agree, even if they do have a whole 'nother team to handle magic stuff.
    Alternate choices for me would be either Black Canary, Vixen or Hawkgirl. It definitely needs to be a woman, because the Big 7 is too much of a sausage fest.

    Yeah, I've never been a big fan of adding magic to the JLA(prefer that with my JSA, e.g. Spectre, Dr. Fate)

    Assuming the "big 7" are:
    1. Batman
    2. Superman
    3. Wonder Woman
    4. Aquaman
    5. Flash
    6. Green Lantern
    7. Martian Manhunter

    I think my 8th would be Hawkwoman.

    Vixen is another good choice. I prefer Black Canary to play off Green Arrow in JLA(or run with the women in Birds of Prey).

    Who are we saying are the 7 outside the Trinity?

    I second the nods for Vixen and Zatana. I would also offer up for consideration Kimiyo Hoshi and a matured Serafina of Soyuz or former Empress Maxima

    Agree with all the votes for Zatanna, Black Canary, and Vixen (nothing against Hawkwoman, just personally prefer her and Hawkman not being in separate books, they should be together). Out of the three? Tough choice. Zatanna would be the heavy hitter, Black Canary the street leveler, and Vixen the in between medium power level.

    Now I just think those three together could make a damn good team book on their own.

    Hmm...Mary Marvel? Feel like the Shazam family could benefit by being represented on the team more often.

    Green Arrow, Black Canary, Hawkman, Black Lightning, Big Barda, The Question, or Animal Man.

    If we're going by historic importance, it would be Green Arrow hands down. Throughout most of the Silver Age, he was pretty much considered the eighth member of the JLA.

    I don't think there needs to be an 8th. The classic satellite line up always had a rotation of several core heroes on the team (Green Arrow & Black Canary, Hawkman/Hawkgirl, The Atom, Red Tornado, Zatanna ect)

    Assuming that we're talking the classic seven slots filled (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, Flash (Barry or Wally), and Green Lantern (Hal or Kyle), I'd definitely go with Vixen. She brings more diversity to the line-up and has an interesting power set (and IS a magic-based character, though she's not whipping spells up like Zatanna).

    Couldn't agree with you more. In fact, this team needs a POV character and any member from the SHAZAM!/Marvel Family certainly fits the bill (IMHO):

    Yeah I would also choose Vixen. She would add another much needed woman and POC character to the lineup, plus her powers are unique. I was very pro-Cyborg but the League already has Batman to be the tech guy. Batman also checks the gadgets and hand to hand combat role so that’s why I wouldn’t choose Green Arrow or Black Canary.

    Zatanna would be my second pick because the “Big 7” League doesn’t have a true magic user.

    If they needed a new junior member I would choose Blue Beetle.
