The first superhero group in the world
In the 1940s, there were already so many superheroes that the comic series went out for them. Therefore, author Gardener Fox and editor Sheldon Mayer decided to have various heroes to a Black Adam: a founding member of the Justice Society was shown in the Black Adam Superbowl trailer: Hawkman. Source: Warner Brothers super group together. They called them the Justice Society of America (JSA) and bundled into their various well-known heroes a team. In addition to the regular members. Fate and Hawkman were also the early versions of Flash, Wonder Woman and Green Latern at the first appearance of the JSA in All Star Comics # 3. Important for membership was actually only one thing: the hero or heroine was not allowed to have a current title. Therefore, characters like Superman and Batman were only honorary members of the group. Later, this reason for membership was sawn of course.
After the end of the 1940s, the sales of superhero comics but had always decreased more and more, the first course of the JSA ended. Even within the DC universe, the group was increasingly forgotten. Of course, this also has to do with the Justice League in which the Silver Age variants appear some JSA members. In addition, by their stories in the minds of many readers, the Justice Society was too close to the war years and the old, golden age of comics to be able to do something great with the characters.
Experienced heroes for modern times
To make the JSA interesting again and to be able to distinguish it more clearly from the Justice League, authors and draftsmen ventured unusual steps. On the one hand, the Justice Society was physically separated from the Justice League for a while.

Apart from crossover events, both groups had little to do with each other. On the other hand, the creators of the comics allowed the members of the JUSTICE Society to agree. Over time, other young heroes came to JSA, which allowed the authors to build generation conflicts in the otherwise ageless world of comics superheroes or the theme of their own legacy. Especially Geoff Johns managed so in the early 2000s, the JSA again known and interesting. It is also its version of the group, which serves again and again as inspiration for other projects, currently Black Adam (Buy Now 7.28 €).

Black Adam: What does Antiheld Black Adam have to do with the JSA? More than you could accept. Source: Warner Brothers the greater is therefore the pleasure that the predecessor force of the Justice League in Black Adam is put back into the limelight. The members of the group known so far are a mix of experienced and young superheroes. In any case, Hawkman and Dr. Fate, two members of the original Justice Society. Atom Smasher and Cyclone are younger heroes. Moreover, the occupation also corresponds approximately to the Black Adam worked together in the comic JSA during his time.
But stop – an antiheld Wieblack Adam and a group of upright heroes , as the Justice Society is usually how does it fit together? Better than you could think. Many of the JSA heroes are magically gifted or receive their forces through magic. Black Adams super forces have the same origin. And that’s no coincidence of course. Like most original JSA members , Black Adams Erzfeindshazam was built in the Golden Age of Comics , in which magical super forces were the rule. As seen, the Justice Society of America and Black Adam are a perfect complement. And a way for DC and Warner Brothers to explore strange and magical corners of the DC universe and thus tell new stories. To home page to the gallery
