The Justice League of America

The Justice League has to be the best club in the world. And I'm NOT just talking about the Giffen/DeMatteis incarnation either (although it WAS the best) but practically any version of the JL of A. Silver Age in particular. Not only did you get to go out and battle Starro the Conquerer, save the world, and bask in the adoration of millions, but you got to hang out with some of your friends while doing it. Not to mention a cool headquarters, really spectacular technology, and unlimited budget (thank you Batman!) and a whole lot of other perks.

And you got to play games! Fun fun games. Like Ring around the Rosie, for example...


Sure, there were SOME disadvantages. You had to put up Snapper Carr and his incomprehensible attempts at being "hip"...not to mention that goddamned finger-snapping. On the other hand, there was the opportunity to gaze at Wonder Woman's rack or even Hal's beautiful hair. Sure, Superman cried a lot but Martian Manhunter's milk and chocos made up for it.

Not quite as much fun as the parties that the old JLI used to have of course...


Fire was always a blast at parties. And so HANDY!

Of course it wasn't always beer and skittles. Bad things happened occasionally. People even died. Or went crazy, or had their backs broken, or got blowed up...or worse still, CANCELLED! But somehow, like all good friends, they managed to work through it. It could still be confusing however...


In the end however, no matter how bad the art or terrible the writing, we should ALWAYS have some form of the Justice League around. Always. Because otherwise, they won't have a place to hang out, and be with their friends...oh and save the world a time or two. And because it would upset Hal. You wouldn't want to upset Hal would you?

What, is Ollie MOONING them in that last panel, or something? From Hal's reaction, Ollie must have a tattoo of a Green Lantern symbol in a heart on his butt -- or something. ;-)

He totally does. One more reason to join the Justice League: you get to discuss such important subjects as who has the hairier butt, Ollie or Guy? (Correct answer: Batman.)

And I'm not sure why I adore it so much when Ollie is drawn with his silly cap pushed so far back on his head, but I do.

You're ALWAYS speechless, Hal--being clonked on the head will do that to ya!

Are the Flash and Martian Manhunter . . . hiding behind Supes and Hal? Because otherwise, I . . . you know, I don't even want to know.

That's the sound of me simultaneously spitting out my tea and choking on my danish. Sea, you and Duskdog win the prize! Of COURSE they're looking at Ollie, who just can't seem to resist showing off.

You don't even want to know the kind of stuff that Vibe and Vixen got up to back in the old Detroit League. According to Scipio at least, Zatanna and Vixen had a crush on Dale Gunn. Go figure.
