As I’m going through Justice League members, there is one group that stands out to me as their own long running definitive team, The Justice League International. Justice League International is responsible for giving some characters their more notable traits, or amplifying what was already there. Most present in the cases of Guy Gardner, and Booster Gold. In Martian Manhunter’s case, it the source of where his enjoyment of Oreos first originated.
While the team has changed alot over the years, I personally it’s most recognizable with Guy Gardner, Booster Gold, Blue Beetle, Fire, and Ice. Batman was a founding member of the team, but being Batman, he’s a member of a lot of teams. While he has one of the most iconic moments from the book with Guy Gardner, he’s not exactly someone I associate with the team.
To round out the team, I chose to include Martian Manhunter and Mr. Miracle. I was going to include Dr. Fate, an other original member of the team. But the more I looked, I didn’t feel that he really fit the group as much. What I like about the books and the team is the humor and lighter tone. You get to see the character get to be more petty and more human in their interactions and needs.
