Well, Hal Jordan & Barry Allen were the originals for JL in the comics, but you can use John Stewart & Wally West if you want.

So far, Aquaman is the only one who hasn't been listed as a favorite.

@wushu59: Nope. The first official formation of JLA never had the big two in them.

What was the line up?

This is from the DC Universe Encylopedia:

ORIGIN

SILVER AGE

The Justice League of America was formed when an alien incursion from the planet Appelax forced seven of the World’s Greatest Super Heroes to come together and defeat them. After Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman, and the Martian Manhunter came together to repel the invasion, they decided to regularly band together to tackle crimes too large for one hero to handle alone. They set up their headquarters in a mountain in Happy Harbor, Rhode Island, and although Superman and Batman were only part time members in those early years, they successfully saved the world from the likes of alien despots Despero and Kanjar-Ro, the sorcerer Felix Faust, and Starro, the Conqueror.

In time, the League inducted more heroes, like the Green Arrow, the Atom, Hawkman, and Black Canary. During these early years, the JLA made contact with the parallel world of Earth-2, where their predecessors the Justice Society of America had fought in the days of World War II. This began an annual tradition, where the JLA and the JSA would cross dimensions and share an adventure together. One of those adventures was joining forces to battle the Crime Syndicate of Earth-3, who were all evil doppelgangers of the League, and who would return to menace the team time and again. It was during the end of the Silver Age that the team’s mascot, teenager Snapper Carr, betrayed the location of the League’s home base to the Joker. Around this time, Wonder Woman lost her powers and left the League. These were the first two large blows to the team’s morale.

@infantfinite128: The first official lineup was the same original members. Only without the big two.

1. Batman- Even though the actual characterization may not live up to these values, the Batman concept has the most metaphorical value for fortitude and temperance than any Justice League member, and for actual characterization, he has the best writing thanks to Frank Miller and Gerry Conway.

Although, my overall favorite Batman writer was Chuck Dixon; my favorite Batman run was the Batman Adventures by Kelley Puckett, Ty Templeton, and Paul Dini; and my favorite story was written by Devin Grayson from the Batman: Gotham Knights: Transference trade.

My favorite characterization would have been the Batman the Animated Series (the three seasons) if it didn't continue in The New Batman Adventures and Justice League Unlimited.

At his best, Batman is the most empathetic and compassionate superhero.

2. The Flash- Barry's incredible power combined with his amazing sense of creativity makes The Flash a good metaphor for self-control and discipline. It's great having a member of the police extend his hope for justice with his superhero role.

My favorite characterization of his was from the Batman the Brave and the Bold cartoon episode "Requiem for a Scarlet Speedster!"

3. Green Lantern-Hal Jordan provides great metaphorical value because, unlike doubt which can be dismissed with logical thinking, fear can be used for control, and fear is the opposite of Faith, so I really appreciate having a superhero who is known for overcoming fear like Hal Jordan. And, similar to Barry, I appreciate the self-control and discipline necessary for his Green Lantern role. And I really like that his Green Lantern role is basically a space cop so he doesn't have to be a vigilante in his pursuit for justice.

He could be higher on this list if there was a specific story that I could reference for characterization, but I can't think of one I really liked.

Maybe Denny O'Neil's and Neal Adam's Green Lantern.

4. Superman- The best writing I've read for Superman is by Roger Stern, but my favorite Superman run is by Peter Tomasi. I really like decent families in fiction, and Peter Tomasi's family man take on Superman was a treat. It was my favorite DC run since Geoff Johns' New 52 Aquaman run, and if Superman was consistently written like he was in Peter Tomasi's run, he might be in my top 3 favorite superheroes.

5. Aquaman- I enjoyed Geoff Johns' characterization

6. Wonder Woman- I enjoyed Joe Kelly's characterization

7. Martian Manhunter- I enjoyed J.M. DeMatteis' characterization.

@michaelbn:I understood that from your post, but based on my research, everyone is saying the line up that the Topic Creator wrote.

Can you give evidence to why they aren't? Because that DC Encyclopedia says Batman and Superman were part time members.
