Justice League of America Comics Index


  • Justice League of America #51 (January)
    James Robinson, Mark Bagley, Rob Hunter & Norm Rapmund
    Superman and all the other heroes are unable to stop or get inside the green dome spreading over Washington D.C. Inside the dome The Omega Man attacks the JLA and Crime Syndicate. Jade attacks Omega Man, and he says she's his equal. As he unleashes his power, Jade is seen to be the one who actually creates the green dome in an effort to contain Omega Man's power. As Supergirl attacks, Omega Man urges her on, bringing forth her anger and inner darkness, turning Supergirl into a dark version of herself...

  • Justice League of America #52 (February)
    James Robinson, Mark Bagley, Rob Hunter & Norm Rapmund
    Superman and all the other heroes are still unable to get inside the green dome spread over Washington D.C. Inside the dome The Omega Man seems to be having moments of confusion regarding his identity. Jesse Quick is keeping all the people away from The Omega Man, making it impossible for him to feed on their energy. The JLA and Crime Syndicate team up to fight The Omega Man... except for Supergirl, who has gone dark, and Ultraman, who chooses to side with The Omega Man. With the scales tilted against them, Batman kneels in submission before The Omega Man...

  • Justice League of America #53 (March)
    James Robinson, Mark Bagley, Rob Hunter & Norm Rapmund with Don Ho
    Bored, Supergirl breaks up the fight between Donna and Superwoman. They head with Omega Man to see if Batman has finished putting together the Resurrection Machine. His teammates think Batman is a coward for agreeing to help Omega Man, but it was all a plan. When Owl Man double-crosses them, the machine is turned on, and with the help of Green Lantern (and the newly resurrected Alexander Luthor), the machine was reversed, and Omega Man is pushed through the portal, sending him on a loop to all the worlds he ruined, making it so that his presence will cure each planet instead. With the villains shoved back to their own universes, the green dome is lowered, and the JLA are praised for their efforts.

Jesse takes Alan Scott away from Emerald City as Jade prepares to take on Eclipso. Starman arrives to help with Doomsday, but is swatted away easily. Blue Lantern Saint Walker arrives as the JLA and Doomsday are transported onto the JLA satellite. Eclipso takes over the Emerald City easily. Jade is taken over by Eclipso.

Donna continues to fight Jade. Justice League members, including Cyborg, Red Tornado, Dr. Light, Animal Man, Bulleteer, Zauriel, and others arrive to help. Eclipso sends his posse of shadow villains to engage the Justice League. Batman, Starman, and Saint Walker arrive. Eclipso has already taken over most of the heroes. Saint Walker takes on Eclipso after Zauriel fails, and Batman, Donna, Mikaal, and Congorilla join him. Darkness begins to engulf the JLA heroes.

Eclipso uses Zauriel to bring forth the Spectre. Eclipso attacks and kills the Spectre, obsorbing his energy and power. It seems Earth is the conduit between God and all energy in the universe. As the heroes move to attack, Eclipso uses his new powers to split the moon in half.

  • Justice League of America #58 (August)
    James Robinson, Daniel Sampere & Miguel Sepulveda, Wayne Faucher & Miguel Sepulveda
    With the moon split in half, the Earth is in chaos. The heroes take the fight to Eclipso, with a plan to have the Atom and Starman enter into The Shades brain (via a shot from a gun created by Saint Walker and fired by Congo Bill). Their aim is to somehow remove Eclipso's brainwashing of The Shade to turn him to their cause. While they have their work cut out for them inside, Donna confronts Eclipso on directly, and is viciously stabbed through the chest by the villain.

  • Justice League of America #59 (September)
    James Robinson, Daniel Sampere, Wayne Faucher
    Eclipso sits and gloats that he's won and destroyed the entire universe. However it's a figment of his imagination, placed in his mind by Saint Walker. The Atom and Starman manage to remove the control Eclipso had over The Shade, which in turn frees all the other heroes that were under Eclipso's control. Together they take down Eclipso, repair the Moon and head to Earth to restore order. Five weeks later, this version of the Justice League is disbanded.

  • Justice League of America #60 [Final Issue] (October)
    James Robinson, Daniel Sampere, Wayne Faucher
    After the fight with Eclipso the JLA continued to fight the good fight, defeating rogue robots, and then coming together to the watchtower where each member reveals their desire to focus on other aspects of their lives. Supergirl wants to leave to perhaps attend college. Donna Troy wants to reevaluate her life. Jesse Quick is pregnant. Jade wants to focus on the second chance at life she's been given. Congo Bill needs to repay a debt in Africa. Mik needs to heal. While Dick Grayson is going back to help out with Batman Incorporated. And so this version of the JLA is no more...

JLA Comics Index (1996-2011)


The JLA comic book brought together Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, Green Lantern and the Martian Manhunter. The original line-up has changed as the series has progressed. This comic book title centers around events and situations that can only be dealt with by the combined might and team work of these heroes.

Green Arrow joined the JLA in issues #8 & #9. Aztek joined the JLA in Aztek #10 and was first featured in JLA #10. The JLA was “officially” disbanded in issue #15 but again reformed with a new look line-up in JLA #16. Green Arrown and Aztek were no longer with the JLA. Steel, Huntress, Plastic Man, Zauriel, Oracle, Orion, Big Barda were shown as the new members in JLA #16 & 17, with a rotating “vacant” spot left open for any specialists needed to help out as the situation demands.

After the events of DC 1 Million, the future Hourman became a temporary member of the JLA, as did The Atom in JLA #27, but only on a semi-permanent basis as a scientific advisor.

Following an adventure in which the JLA went back in time to rescue the long-missing Aquaman and Atlantis (thereby implementing an “emergency” team hand-picked by Batman), Superman summed it up best: “The JLA is an organic thing. It exists to cope with the ever-changing face of terror... and in that way, it too, must sometimes evolve.” With that, the League's chairman expanded the core group, inducting several probationary members who had proven their worth in times of crisis. These included reformed super-criminal Major Disaster, ancient Earth shaman Manitou Raven, the mysterious telekinetic powerhouse Faith, and Green Lantern (John Stewart), who took Kyle Rayner's place on the roster. Meanwhile, former members from all incarnations of the JLA have standby status and remain on call should any emergency require their assistance.

This incarnation of the book was concluded with issue #60 ahead of the post-Flashpoint relaunch in late 2011.
