    I don't mind the concept but we really gotta stop using the Dark subtitle to designate a magical faction version

    Because none of the previous names stuck.

    We have had:
    -Trenchcoat Brigade (in the Berger adjacent stuff)
    -Primal Force/Leymen (post-Zero Hour)
    -Sentinels of Magic (post-Days of Judgement)
    -Shadowpact (post-Infinite Crisis)
    -Secret Seven (in Flashpoint).

    None of these names stuck. JLD/JSD has lasted the longest by far.

    If someone gave them a new name literally the next guy will change it for his own idea.

    JSD has lasted for a few pages at most. It's a pathetic and unoriginal attempt to utilize the idea of a different JL team dealing with magic to the JSA team and not even coming up with a new naming convention.

    I don't think that Secret Seven was a serious attempt at creating a magic based team, it felt like a placeholder for JLD since I think same writer wrote both?

    But other than that yeah, JL in the name is going to move extra units and thats why we have it. JSD would be redundant.

    I didn’t quite intend for the going off topic.

    Considering the time period you’d think a JS Europe of JS International would be more likely than a JS Dark?

    I’m assuming the focus on Helena is A) Bat connection and B) making sure Helena sticks around as a woman out of time?
    Possibly. This series does revamp her well enough as a character. So she could hang out with Power Girl and Lilith.

    It will only be a problem once they announce Batman Dark

    Lol Batman Noir would be classier.

    I believe there is a line of black/white Batman collections called Batman Noir.

    I rather it was set on Earth 2 but I'm fine with the JSA run so far. The timeskips at the end when she gets thrown from 1940s JSA to Khalid’s time is the only confusing part.

    Huh, didn't know the Mister Miracle mantle pre-dated Scott Free. I just looked him up and he sounds kinda cool, but I still don't get why he's leading the JSD since he doesn't have any magical powers.

    Only technically. Originally, he was a one-off character whose only role was that he was the guy who gave Scott Free his costume. This version greatly expands his role into being a Golden Age hero in his own right.

    I'm curious about that, too.

    Thaddeus could have some mystical abilities or have expierenced supernatural adventures.

    You don't need magical powers to be in JLD.

    I see everyone's fate but my own. Sometimes that scares me. But when I see the future of someone such as yourself, I believe in tomorrow again
