Weekend Poll: What Do You Think of DC's New JUSTICE LEAGUE?

Weekend Poll: What Do You Think of JLA?

Scan of an Ad seen in DC Comics the week of September 16

Well, it's certainly a NEW Justice League of America.

When James Robinson and Mark Bagley take over the JLA next month with issue 38, they're making a few changes to the team. There are certainly characters in many of the iconic positions, and seasoned veterans, but there are also some surprises and a lot of characters graduating from younger teams and relatively new solo careers. Our own J. Caleb Mozzocco has an in-depth and candid look at the new line-up over at Blog@Newsarama (Go ahead, we'll be here when you get back), but for a brief recap:

CONGORILLA- A big, mystically-empowered golden gorilla who was a simple explorer named Congo Bill.

DONNA TROY- She's filling the Wonder Woman role. She's been Wonder Girl, and Troia, she's been a mirror-image sister of Wonder Woman and a product of the legendary Titans of Myth.

MON-EL- Superman's slot (and possibly the superhero name, judging by the "S" Crest now on his costume) goes to this chap from Daxam. As we recently learned in the Superman Annual, Daxamites are actually anciently related to Kryptonians, and Mon has some other blood coursing through his veins as well.

BATMAN (Dick Grayson)- He's, at his core, like the Batman pop culture fans know; a regular man trained to the peak of mental and physical conditioning, using gadgets galore to fight crime after the tragic loss of his parents. However, he's got a sunny side, and a lot more willingness to depend on his friends. This Batman smiles.

DR. LIGHT (Kimiyo)- No, not the crazy villain who Meltzer made into a topic of epic controversy. This is the Dr. Light who has been a hero of various levels for years, and one of the few holdovers from either current Justice League of America.

GREEN ARROW (Oliver Queen)- Ollie's back, and this time, he's the grizzled veteran of the team. A lot of his team dynamic comes from playing off other characters, including his buddy cop show relationship with Hal Jordan and his constant clashes with Batman. With a new man under the cowl (and a whole lot of first time Leaguers), how will GA's actions and reactions change?

GREEN LANTERN (Hal Jordan)- With everything Hal's been through in the last few years, he certainly has the experience column checked off. With his buddy Oliver on the team, their dynamic can continue to be played with. However, with a starring role in the current mega event Blackest Night and his own solo book, some people may be a bit confused as to why he, over the other three Green Lanterns of Earth, is on the team.

THE ATOM (Ray Palmer)- Another veteran who has recently returned to his role, the incredible shrinking man certainly adds a big brain to the team. That is, until you look at...

CYBORG- The longtime Teen and teen-less Titan who is often looked to as a backbone for that family of characters finally gets his graduation day. Alongside teammates Dick and Donna, he finally gets a crack at the big leagues. He's not the only other Titan moving on up, as...

STARFIRE- Also joins from the Titans (is there anyone left?). She's an alien princess with very high-level energy powers, and another of Dick Grayson's former loves.

THE GUARDIAN- This super cop has seen a recent revival in the pages of the Superman books, but joining the premier superteam in the States is a surprising move for the character. He's probably the sleeper character to watch here.

So, that's the list. Now, what're your opinions?
