    Same here.

    My faves were Comet, Jaguar and the first few issues of Black Hood.

    Which brings me to this:



    From the 'That's Why We Can't Have Nice Things' Department-

    The 1991 Justice Society of America mini-series was a throwaway project done to give the artists of the Impact launch titles something to do while they were getting things prepared.
    It also, inadvertently, re-sparked reader interest in the JSA at a time when DC was beginning to make sweeping changes to their titles towards a more 'serious' tone.

    A new regular series was soon brought about due to the team's renewed popularity.
    However... the tone of the series not only clashed with DC's new direction (and possibly threatened to undermine it) but Mike Carlin personally didn't like the book. So, their ongoing series was cancelled and the JSA would become cannon-fodder for Zero Hour to ensure such a thing wouldn't happen again.

    Matter of fact, the series was cancelled at the same time as the first issue shipped to the shops.



    Looking back, the dislike for the JSA series by editorial mirrored the resentment that had developed towards the JLI at the time, which was a top-selling book (and obviously not as easy to get rid of due to its success). And the changes brought about by the new directions in DC titles starting in 1992 and culminating with Zero Hour would ruin DC for me for many years.

    Some solid concepts here and I feel DC was possibly giving this line a "try out" before it ultimately went with Milestone.
    DC has had a history of buying and integrating other comic lines(Captain Marvel & Charlton) as recently as Wildstorm also.
