The first three members from "Rebirth"'s Justice League of America title has been revealed: Vixen, The Ray, and The Atom.

These three characters, and one to be named, will be spotlighted in four one-shots coming in January during the Justice League vs. Suicide Squad event, before leading to the Justice League of America twice-monthly ongoing title beginning in February by Steve Orlando and Ivan Reis.

January 4's Justice League of America: The Atom will be written by Orlando and an undisclosed artist, with Reis providing the main cover - as he will for all the one-shots. This will star Ryan Choi as Atom, as foreshadowed in the DC Universe: Rebirth one-shot.

"Who’s on the roster? The Atom. Meet Ryan Choi, prodigious theoretical physics student, hyper-allergic, and crippling social anxiety sufferer," reads DC's description (via Comic Vine). "But little does young Ryan know, his first day at Ivy University will begin an epic journey that will take the all-new Atom into the very heart of the DC Universe."

January 11's Justice League of America: Vixen is written by Orlando and Jody Houser, with Jamal Campbell illustrating.

"She’s one of the country’s most successful businesswomen, an iconic fashion pioneer, a crusader for social justice, and an incredibly powerful member of the Justice League of America," reads DC's description (via CBR). "But Mari McCabe life wasn’t always this way. Follow her path to becoming the heroic Vixen in this crucial special!"


January 18's Justice League of America: The Ray will be written by Orlando on his own, joined by Green Arrow artist Stephen Byrne, according to Comics Alliance. This will star the 1990s Ray character created by Joe Quesada and Jack C. Harris in 1992, Ray Terrell - son of Lanford "Happy" Terrill, the original Ray.

DC goes on to give a new description for the Justice League of America title itself; and while it carries the "America" suffix to differentiate it from the Justice League title, it is going far outside North and South America.

"Foes of evil! Enemies of injustice! As it began in DC Universe: Rebirth, for the mighty heroes of the Justice League of America, all wrongdoing is a menace to be stamped out! Whether it comes from outer space, from the watery depths of the seven seas, or springs from the minds of men, the Justice League of America is back—just when we need it most!"
