I doubt it’s a coincidence that DC decided to make a video montage of every superhero that has ever joined the Justice League right before a Comic-Con they’re expected to debut some Justice League movie material. But never mind that. What the hell happened to the Justice League in the early ‘90s?

Lightray? Crimson Fox? Blue Jay? General Glory? Silver Sorceress, who, I might add, is not depicted as being silver in the slightest? My DC comic education began well after Grant Morrison relaunched JLA in 1997, but holy crap I had no idea things had gotten that dire beforehand. When the Wonder Twins count as one of the best additions to the team in the entire decade, you know it’s time for a reboot or three.
