They should have appeared on Justice League, but DC wouldn't let them use the JSA, so they had to cobble together the Justice Guild.


It wasn't that DC wouldn't let them use the characters, they just didn't want them using them as "imaginary" characters who were actually dead at the time of the story.

I thought on the DVD commentary, they said it was because they were doing the dialogue in the style of the old Golden Age comics and DC wanted the JSA to be taken seriously and not associated with a style that seems campy to modern audiences. Something like that.

JSA got my vote

Alan Scott
Jay Garrick
Mr. Terrific
Dr. Midnite
Hourman

Don't have that DVD set, yet. It's been a long time since I read that, I just remember something to the extent that they didn't want the JSA portrayed the way the script had them -- I took that to mean that they didn't want them to be "imaginary" after I saw the show. Never thought it could be that the dialogue was too campy...

I just bought a Ventriloquist and Scarface from the Mattel TNBA 4 packs (not the THE Batman one) and thought that they could at least use the upper torso of Ventriloquist as a Johnny Thunder.

I picked the Seven Soilders! I can't wait to put STRIPES, Crimson Avenger and Speedy on my JLU shelf. Bring them on Mattel! :D

I'd still like to see the Ultimen. (The JSA was covered by the old JLU contract).

I don't think it was just the dialogue, but also that the characters were coming off as so dated. They do go in to quite a bit of depth into back and forth with DC about those episodes. Haven't watched it in a while, but it's pretty interesting. They almost didn't do the episodes at all, until they hit upon the Justice Guild solution.
