    Default Create your own "Big 12" Justice League line-up

    Ever since Morrison's run, I don't think we've had these amount of members for the main team, but I've always thought the correlation to the Greek pantheon was really fun and I love that a bigger team allows for the presence of the "Big 7" + other different and more diverse characters.
    So if you could choose a 12 member Justice League team, which characters would you pick?

    For the record, Morrison's Pantheon: Based on the Twelve Olympians

    Zeus = Superman
    Hera = Wonder Woman
    Poseidon = Aquaman
    Hermes = Flash
    Apollo = Green Lantern
    Demeter = Big Barda
    Ares = Orion
    Artemis = Huntress
    Hephaestus = Steel
    Athena = Oracle
    Eros = Zauriel ?
    Dionysus = Plastic Man
    Hades = Batman

    Martian Manhunter = an advisor only

    (Hades was not usually included among the Olympians his realm was appropriately the underworld hence 13 = Batman)

    My team:



    I wanted to keep a classic team but still have some fresh faces and diversity, I think it makes things way more interesting than having everyone have similar backgrounds.
    Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Flash are no-brainers for me.
    Cyborg was also an easy choice, he adds a lot to the team with his abilities and tech, plus his dynamic with Shazam brings some youthness to the team like Wally and Kyle's used to.
    I added Mera because I think it's long past time she joined the team.
    Shazam is there to bounce off of Cyborg and for the naiveté and connection to magic.
    Zatanna would finally rejoin the team as the only one actually capable of manipulating the mystic energies. She also has kind of an edgier personality than a lot of the team, which would be cool to explore.
    Vixen is another character I feel belongs on the premier team, she's just awesome and a I think she would make for a great spokesperson.
    I also wanted a Green Lantern, but I think Power Ring adds a new dynamic and Hal is usually too busy to join the team these days and I'd want John on a more cosmic oriented JL team lead by Martian Manhunter.
    Lastly, I'd add Element Woman. She has so much untapped potential and I don't think we've really seen her past explored. I'd portray her as a transgendered woman with a real positive outlook on life. Her powers might make her look different, but she'd feel incredibly blessed to have them. I think it would be cool to have an LGBT on the League, the team is usually pretty conservative but adding a transgendered woman and members like the new version of Zatanna could change things up a little.

    I know the team would be pretty big, but all 12 would only be together on the biggest battles. On smaller missions, they'd rotate 7 members for each mission.

    I'd read the heck out of that team.
    Current Pull: Lazarus, The Realm, Seven to Eternity, Aquaman, Flash, Justice League Dark, Justice League Odyssey, Sideways, Black Panther, Captain America, Daredevil, Death of the Inhumans.

    Future Pull: Killmonger.

    Me too!

    In fact I haven't read much in the way of Justice League since Morrison's run. I dipped into Johns' New 52 run at the beginning and enjoyed the first six issues but they lost me with 'The Villain's Journey'. I would welcome a larger roster and a writer on par with Morrison again.

    I always maintain that every member during the team's first decade "matter." So that gives us:

    Superman
    Batman
    Wonder Woman
    The Flash
    Green Lantern
    Aquaman
    Martian Manhunter
    Green Arrow
    Hawkman
    The Atom
    Black Canary

    If we start there we have one slot to fill. Let me think about it.

    I'd want to see a big Justice League team featuring mostly characters on the Justice League Unlimited animated series plus a few other members I think would round out the lineup nicely.

    1. Batman
    2. Superman
    3. Green Lantern
    4. Flash
    5. Martian Manhunter
    6. Hawkgirl
    7. Wonder Woman
    8. Zatanna
    9. Red Tornado
    10. Black Canary
    11. Cyborg
    12. Vixen

    Aquaman, Green Arrow, Red Arrow, Power Girl, Barbara Gordon, and Supergirl are among the many part-time league members whom most frequently assist with the big 12.

    This is great. I was just thinking about Morrison's Justice League and reflecting on how we don't get stories like that anymore. Anyway, here's my team. A mix of classics and the younger crew with a surprise or two:

    Superman
    Batman
    Nightwing
    Wonder Woman
    Aquaman
    Mera
    Flash (Wally)
    Cyborg
    Firestorm
    Manitou Dawn
    Wonder Twins
