I can't believe its [New 52] JLI!

After the reboot, Justice League International got a new run and line-up but ended up cancelled. Would love the team to be revisited and a new Justice League formed. Say perhaps the United Nations are perhaps unhappy at seeing the United States with their Justice League of America team. So, they decide to resume funding of a new incarnation of the Justice League International. Give it to a good writer who works closely with Geoff Johns and give it a backup and it should be good.

List items

  • The Justice League International, a team of superheroes designed with the purpose of representing countries from around the world. Essentially, a team of international heroes with maybe guest appearances from members of the previous JLI runs.

  • The sponsor of the Justice League International who want their own team of superheroes to handle the various threats around the world and perhaps serve as another counter to the Justice League and Justice League of America.

  • Where A.R.G.U.S. is a United States agency, Checkmate would be the United Nation's intelligence group that support Justice League International by providing equipment, agents and other facilities.

  • Perhaps make him become a mentor figure to Firehawk who is grieving the loss of her partner Hurricane who died during the events of the Fury of Firestorm comic.

  • Either leader or co-leader of the team.

  • In the New 52, she got re-imagined as a French lady and I like the change so she would represent France and provide a Firestorm analogue to the team.

  • Perhaps have a back up that deals with his origins and adventuring? Could perhaps get him involved in fights with Intergang and develop his rogues gallery through the back up feature.

  • A re-imagined version of the character with ties to the Fourth World. He would be kind of a Batman of the team but very different...

  • Make her Arthur Light's wife and given his powers.

  • I realised that after looking at my team list that I had no magic user. So, whilst browsing, I saw Janissary and remembered about her and thought why not add her to add some magic to the team's arsenal? It also helps that she helps representative another country on the team.

    Also, I would perhaps make her part of an ancient Muslim order created by Al Jabr from Demon Knights. Their mission being the protection of the world from relics from the past that could destabilize society. I would give her the Eternity Book containing a list of spells. Janissary would also use a combination of magic and science.

  • Keep the tradition by having a new person under the suit and serve as a representative from Russia.

  • I would perhaps each 'story arc' introducing a new member. That way we get to see a new character as part of the team temporarily and the next arc would see another one.

  • Another guest star for a story arc.

  • UN representative that heads the public affairs division for the JLI. I would make her in arguments with Captain Atom.

  • He's already been introduced in OMAC so makes sense to bring him back here if Checkmate is involved.

  • Retool the character into perhaps being the new White Queen in Checkmate.

  • French Checkmate operative.

  • Checkmate hired him to manage their detention facilities.

  • U.N. fast response division attached to Checkmate.

  • Perhaps a Checkmate suggested UN created counterteam to destroy the League in case they ever went rogue.

  • Nemesis to Checkmate.

  • Considering the tie with Maxwell Lord, I think by extension Brother EYE would need to return as a foe for the team.

  • I would make Maxwell Lord impressed with Brother EYE's OMAC Kevin Kho and he decides to replicate it. Ultimately, he makes a somewhat watered down version but they have the ability to adapt. These OMACs would be created from Apokoliptian Techno-Seed nanotechnology.

  • I would make him a rogue British operative who has his own set plan on handling threats. Keep Sister Superior as his sister which adds a personal reason for some of her involvement whenever Black schemes are in play.

  • Makes sense for T.O. Morrow to become a villain for the team considering his creation would be on the JLI. Plus, I'd like to think that some of the villains introduced in Justice League get re-appropriated onto its sister titles. Ivo onto JLA and Morrow to JLI.

  • I can see Checkmate clashing with A.R.G.U.S. with the two being rivals. Plus, agency conflict whenever the JLI operates in America.

  • Would be interesting to see Waller face off against Checkmate and Sister Superior.

  • He got re-imagined as a villain and I say keep him as one. Bring him back now as a JLI villain and wants to attain ultimate power from the spark that created the Big Bang.

  • Some missions could lead to a mission conflict with the Rocket Red Brigade which can add some nice tension considering Rocket Red would have to choose his loyalties between the two teams.

  • Retool the character and make him a high end Russian official who heads his country's contingent to Checkmate. He seeks to subvert control for his own interests and serves as a foil for Rocket Red.

  • Would be amusing to see Rocket Red mumbling about the Germans stealing the Rocket Red design and making a knockoff. Not saying the Rocket Elite are knockoffs, just that this would be Rocket Red's view.

  • Possibly an agent of Checkmate or liaison from the United Kingdom. Have the Britannia suit under development. Get her to become a technopath again as she was in the Flashpoint universe.

  • Make him a semi-villain who engages in minor crimes in the United Kingdom.

  • For extraterrestrial threats, I would have this guy be basically a cosmic salesman who advertises and prepares planets to sell to 'client' alien races.

  • For the possible Plastic Man back-up story.

  • Crime doctor who helps in reverse engineering or creating some of the Apokoliptian tech for Intergang's use. Makes use of forcefield tech for defense and attack. Perhaps make him a bit wacky; borderline between madness and genius.

  • A villain for the team and in particular Mr. Scarlet.
