We've seen the issue where it was shown that the Justice League refused to allow other members to join the team. Something really big went down with Martian Manhunter. Green Arrow was determined to join but they would't have anything to do with him. All that's about to change.

Today at Fan Expo, it was announced that the roster is changing, big time.

No Caption Provided

You should notice one difference. This is going to be JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA. Geoff Johns will be joined by David Finch and the team will be under the guidance of Steve Trevor. On the team we see Vibe, Catwoman, Martian Manhunter, the new Green Lantern, Stargirl, Katana, Hawkman and Green Arrow.

You can check out an interview with Johns and Finch over at MTV Geek.

What do you think about this roster? Does this team make sense? We'll see more of this in 2013. Are you ready for another Justice League comic?

EDIT

To clarify, this is a NEW title. It's mentioned above but to be clear, we'll have JUSTICE LEAGUE and JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA.

From DC's blog:

Launching in 2013, DC Comics will publish a new ongoing comic book series, JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA, written by Geoff Johns and drawn by David Finch.

Looks good, I'm sure the Manhunter's fans will be happy to see him back on a JL team. Catwoman though, that's interesting.

I for one will be looking forward to Catwoman/Green Arrow interaction. That dialogue alone should be fun enough to warrant buying this for a bit.

Are they changing the name of the current JUSTICE LEAGUE book or this going to be a completely new title?

Excuse my confusion.

Finally something new from DC that I'm looking forward to. The line up is leagues more interesting than the current Justice League team. I'm excited about this.

And the Martian Manhunter fans can stop bitching and complaining now.

Looks to be a new title, guys.

I'm VERY interested in Justice League 12 now that so much is spinning out of it's wake.

(And with GL Baz fighting the main Justice League, J'onn fighting them, and Green Arrow not welcome in, does that instantly put these two groups at odds?)

Sounds like a new title. Also surprised they didn't tease this the same way Marvel does some Avengers teams. Don't know if this will be a sort of Black Ops team? Meh.

Seems like it. This is the group Steve Trevor was asking Green Arrow to join in one of the previous Justice League issues. It's also would explain JLI's out of the blue cancellation.

But spoilers.....

steve trevor is dead in the last issue of justice league, how can he lead here?

Roster looks cool, hope this is a new series and doesn't straight up replace current JL. As run of the mill as it is, I still enjoy the classic roster too.

As long as it's a new title, or not replacing the main cast, I'm good (I didn't care much for JLoA v4 when the trinity left & it was a bunch of scab-leaguers). I'm definitely glad MM will be getting to be featured in an environment I'm much more familiar with though (I was sad he wasn't in the new JL, and I tried to read Stormwatch (just for him), but I just didn't care for it).

looks fun! glad to see J'onn back in the spotlight and GA hopefully handled better than in his book. cant say i really care for the idea of another Lantern. why not use John or Kyle? and why is Katana leaving BoP? and im really interested in seeing how Catwoman fits in to this.

In a way it's interesting, in another way it's pretty sad that with the massive failure of the UN's JLI that the US will now have a sole go at the idea.

Also, I don't know if I want to get my hopes up, Johns' JL is already in a poor state...hows this going to turn out?

@leosol: The answer is simple. "Comic Books."

I'm excited for this. This roster will work better than the JLI one, sadly.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Johns steps up in the writing department with this book. As much as I'm digging the line up, I'm not going to be buying this if the writing is the way it is in Justice League.

This is AWESOME! As long as this is a secondary title and not actually replacing Justice League. I know it isnt the most popular book on Comicvine but Im personally LOVING Johns and Lee's JL. But this definatly looks like its going to be a government sanctioned Justice League which would explain JLIs cancellation as well as the team that Steve Trevor was putting together.
