Justice League Membership

In 2010, with the New 52, Cosmic Teams ceased covering the Justice League. This section is archival only.

Field Operatives

The following are/were members of the Justice League of America, Justice League America, Justice League International, Justice League Europe and Justice League Task Force and Extreme Justice. These heroes all meet the following criteria (with examples). See Continuity for details on individual members' service and lives. Allies & Branches lists heroes who served in other capacities, and the the Who's Who Index lists all profiles available.

  1. This list is valid only for pre-New 52 continuity
  2. Members served as a FIELD OPERATIVES.
    (Example: Oberon, Maxwell Lord and Sue Dibny were not field operatives.)
  3. Members were OFFERED membership by an official branch of the League.
    (Example: Although she acted like a member, Artemis was never offered membership.)
  4. Members ACCEPTED that membership.
    (Example: Black Condor and Agent Liberty never accepted their JLA membership offers, though they got roped into a mission.)
  5. Members held part- or full-time status for a REASONABLE TENURE.
    (Example: One-time Task Force operatives are not included.)
  6. Members did not join under false pretenses, and were not villains.

The Pantheon

Grant Morrison envisioned the JLA as a parallel to the pantheon of Greek gods. Here's his logic:

Superman = Zeus Batman = Hades
Plastic Man = Dionysus Wonder Woman = Hera
Aquaman = Poseidon Martian Manhunter = an advisor only
Flash = Hermes Big Barda = Demeter
Orion = Ares Huntress = Artemis
Steel = Hephaestus Green Lantern = Apollo
Oracle = Athena Zauriel = Eros
