DC Comics Officially Unveils New Justice League Roster

DC Comics reveals its unlikely new Justice League roster, as a new team rises following the deaths of some of the universe’s greatest heroes.

Warning! Spoilers for Dark Crisis #1 by DC Comics

The original Justice League is dead, and in Dark Crisis #1, Jon Kent’s Superman assembles a new team to take their place for the time being. In the new DC Comics crossover event, Superman chooses a group of unlikely heroes to form the new Justice League, but he doesn’t get every member he hopes to get. So instead, he recruits a ragtag group of heroes, including both Blue Beetles, Dr. Light, and Booster Gold.

The Justice League’s greatest heroes met their end in the lead-up to Dark Crisis, as members of the superteam died brutal deaths in an epic last-stand against Pariah, The Great Darkness, and mind-controlled villains. On Earth, Jon Kent’s Superman and Nightwing are left to pick up the pieces in the absence of the Justice League – even if the latter doesn’t believe that Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman will be gone for long, as he’s seen them die and return many times in the past.

In Dark Crisis #1 by Joshua Williamson, Daniel Sampere, Alejandro Sanchez, and Tom Napolitano from DC Comics, Earth’s remaining heroes mourn the sudden loss of members of the Justice League. Jon Kent’s Superman is inspired to assemble a new roster of heroes to have in place against the Great Darkness comes to Earth, leading him to Brazil, where he tries to recruit Yara Flor’s Wonder Girl. However, after being rejected by the hero, Jayce Fox’s Batman, Sojourner Mullein’s Green Lantern, multiple Flashes, Peacemaker, Vixen, and Firestorm, Superman manages to find a handful of heroes to join him as new members of the Justice League.


While the new Justice League has some formidable members including Supergirl, Aquaman, Dr. Light, and Damian Wayne’s Robin, the rest of the roster comprises several oddball heroes. Out-of-the-box selections include Frankenstein, Ice, Harley Quinn, Booster Gold, and both Blue Beetles. Black Adam tells Superman he’s made a team of children, questioning his picks and calling the team “no Justice League.” However, Superman believes in his group of heroes and is firmly behind them as he’s determined to have good heroes make up the new Justice League. How Frankenstein, Harley Quinn, and Ice qualify as “good heroes” fluctuates heavily depending on their alleigances.


Is the new Justice League one of the strongest teams ever assembled? No. Are the roster of heroes also relatively inexperienced compared to the recently demised team? Yes. Can they all be trusted? That’s debatable But, amid a Dark Crisis, the Earth needs heroes, and Superman did his best to fill the Justice League with people he could depend on. The Justice League is in flux, as the final roster replacing the dead heroes will probably change in the future. But for now, the current team is Earth’s best defense.
