The first issue of JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #1 will be a bit different from the titles that are usually released from DC. To celebrate the U.S. as well as all 52 DC titles, DC will release 52 different variant covers for the first issue, each cover will feature '52 U.s. flag variant editions,' one for each of the 50 states in the union as well as one for Washington, D.C. and one for Puerto Rico. The image will feature members of the league including Catwoman, Green Arrow, Baz (the new Green Lantern) and Vibe.

The image is inspired by the classic photograph taken by Joe Rosenthal for the Associated Press back in February 23, 1945 during World War II in which a group os U.S Marines hoisted the flag on Mount Suribachi. The historical photograph is titled 'Raising The Flag On Iwo Jima' and is a classic picture, so it makes sense that the artist David Finch would use the image as inspiration for the cover to the first issue of JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #1, due to his comic shop shelves on February 6th, 2013.

According to DC, there is "no minimum purchase needed to order the variants," and a shrinkwrapped pack of JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #1 along with all 52 covers will be made available for purchase. Below are three of the 52 total covers, one sporting an American flag and the other two featuring the state flags for California and New York to give you an idea of what they will look like. What do you think of this idea?

Hahaha I thought by 52 variant covers there literally would be 52 unique state-themed varants. Oh well, I'll be getting New York.

Looks like they just molded the flags onto those, which to me makes it look like they aren't even part of the original picture.

I'll probably get one for Montana just because. I guess I had been hoping for something a little more unique for each of the variants, but 52 different covers for each book would be a ridiculous amount of work.

Whoa, both Vibe and Catwoman look a little too comfortable on this cover. I know they're trying to be patriotic but doesn't this kind of divide us as a nation? It's like how we have sports teams so that states can battle it out for supremacy without actually murdering each other. We should be united, now more than ever. The politicians can't protect us forever. This kind of looks like a sales tactic since hardcore collectors are obviously going to want all the variations. Weird that Puerto Rico gets a spot but not Guam. Then again our flag is kind of lame. I'll stick with the good ol' stars and stripes, maybe Puerto Rico.

This maybe a dumb question, but.... . .. . ..

Why is it called the Justice League of America? Is there a Justice League of India? Africa? Japan? Shouldn't it just be called The Justice League.

Because the regular Justice league already exists

@Gotham's Dark Knight: I see it as the Justice League are suppose to stop threats on a global scale. I'm assuming Steve Trevor is assembling the JLA for the sole purpose of taking down the actual Justice League should they pose a threat to the American government. Also they can safeguard the U.S. if the regular JL are indisposed or out of commission.

Because the Justice League International failed, meaning this is subtly a hoot for American superiority.

..i think it is because they work for the american government!!and there is already a justice league!

Wait. Baz is Lebanese and recently deported to Gitmo without due process. Hawkman and MM are aliens. Katana is Japanese, and Catwoman is apparently russian or something (screw that origin).

so...

I get the idea of sticking with the "52" theme and all, but the U.S. has at least one other territory. If you're going to do something like this, go all out.

Because since the relationship between the Justice League and the US Government failed, the US government made their own JL team, hence Justice League of America. The JLI is sponsored by the UN, hence the International part.

I think that even though it's an over-the-top cash grab, it's a good one. I'm sure I'll grab a few myself, just not from tfaw.

Robert Downey Jr. is already in Avengers, he shouldn't be in Justice League.

hopefully those pesky green arrow ads on the front page will be gone by then. they really take away from the art on the front page. it must drive the artists down at DC comics nuts.
