In the new series Justice League Unlimited, the world’s greatest
superheroes, led by Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and the Green
Lantern, enlist some help from their friends to take a more aggressive
approach to thwarting alien invasions, criminal threats and global
the season begins, Superman addresses an awesome assemblage of heroes.
He and the rest of the Justice League, which in the past included the
Flash, Green Lantern, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter
and Hawkgirl, have come to realize that the universe might be best
served by enlarging the group, being more proactive and coordinating
more effectively. The group assembles an awesome collection of
superheroes and brings them together aboard the Watchtower, the orbiting
space station. It’s from this perch that Martian Manhunter monitors
goings-on across the galaxies and assigns teams of superheroes to tackle
But it isn’t always smooth sailing for the members of the expanded
Justice League. Superheroes usually work alone and have powerful, and
idiosyncratic, personalities, so conflicts inevitably arise. Like any
co-workers, these people don’t always agree on the best way to solve a
problem. But in the case of the new Justice League, these superheroes
are dealing with civil wars, rogue criminals and rampaging monsters, so
they must learn to work together.
The new roster of Justice League Unlimited includes some of the most
famous superheroes around, like Green Arrow, Supergirl and Captain Atom.
Other members may be a bit more obscure. Hawk & Dove are siblings with a
very different take on conflict resolution techniques. B’wana Beast is a
jungle man-turned-superhero, a combination of the Bronx and the Bronx
Zoo. The Atom is the world’s smallest superhero. Booster Gold, a
glory-seeking hero from the future, joins the Justice League, as does
Zatanna, a beautiful magician and sorceress. While there is a universe
filled with new threats, a few classic villains return, including Lex
Luthor, Solomon Grundy and Mongul.
