JLA was a monthly comic book published by DC Comics from January 1997 to April 2006 featuring the Justice League . [1] The series restarted DC's approach to the Justice League which had initially featured most of the company's top-tier superheroes but shifted in the 1980s to featuring a rotating cast of established characters alongside newer ones and also saw that franchise expand to several series, diluting the prestige of the name brand. When relaunched by writer Grant Morrison , the team again focused on the most recognizable, powerful, and long-lasting heroes in DC's library.

This series, in an attempt at a "back-to-basics" approach, used as its core the team's original and most famous seven members (or their successors): Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash ( Wally West ), Green Lantern ( Kyle Rayner ), and the Martian Manhunter. [3] Additionally, the team received a new headquarters, the " Watchtower ", based on the Moon . JLA quickly became DC's best-selling title, [4] a position it enjoyed off and on for several years. [5]

Morrison introduced the idea of the JLA allegorically representing a pantheon of gods, with their different powers and personalities, incorporating such characters as Zauriel , Big Barda , Orion , Huntress , Barbara Gordon (Oracle), Steel (John Henry Irons) , and Plastic Man . He also had Aztek , Tomorrow Woman , and Green Arrow (Connor Hawke) as temporaries. [6]
