Ladies and Gentlemen, the legendary Justice Society of America, then and now:

Image

With these guys on our side, you have to wonder how the war lasted as long as it did. :mrgreen:

They are the first team of super-heroes ever created, and though they've had their ups and downs, they've lasted nearly seventy years. That's extraordinary when you think about it, and it says something about how passionate fandom has become about these characters.

I first discovered the JSA as a wee lad back in the summer of 1965. I went to the local drug store hoping to find the latest issue of my beloved Justice League of America. I found it alright, but something was wrong. There wasn't a single member of the mighty JLA on the cover.

Image

The Atom, Flash and Green Lantern were all wrong. I had no idea who Dr. Fate and Mr. Terrific were. And what the heck was with the big pink thing?

I bought the comic, jumped on my bike and peddled home as fast as I could. I think I read and re-read that issue so many times it nearly fell apart.

I was fascinated with the idea of other-worldy counterparts to the Justice League. I loved the whole concept. And later there were the Infinite Earths ... The Crime Syndicate of Earth Three, the Freedom Fighters of Earth-X, and so on. But the JSA were always my favorites.

Of all the teams in the DC and Marvel Universes, this is the team I want to see completed the most in action figure form. Pre-Crisis. Post-Crisis. Post Infinite Crisis. Any Crisis. If a character is or was a card-carrying member of the JSA, I wanna see him or her in the DCUC and DCIH.

This is the one that did it for me years ago in 1984 when I was 10.

I was like "That's not the Flash!?"

And who are the rest of these guys?

I've been under the JSA spell since then.

All Star Squadron and Infinity Inc. man were we spoiled back then.
Good times.

Hope that image works.

Awesome work Mike!

I don't have the patience to put something like that together. Man, though, some of those covers bring back memories. The JSA is cool.

I'm totally blown away by this thread. What a spectacular display of the JSA past and present!

I'm not going as crazy for DCUC as I am for JLU.

But I will buy any JSA members Mattel makes.

Also, a JSA BAF needs to be Karen Starr/Kara Zor El's chest... 8)

Some great covers of some great stories in there! I get mad when I think that my uncle, who was an alcoholic (RIP) sent a good chunk of my borrowed JLA comics to his kids.

I forget: who was the Killer? Was it Johnny Thunder?
