Fantastic Five: Most Underrated Justice League Members
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.
The Justice League is known for having not only the heavy hitters of the DC Universe, but some of the most popular fictional characters in the world, so it’s really no surprise that numerous worthy heroes fall through the cracks and never get the attention and accolades they deserve. Today we’re going to try to remedy that just a little and give five such characters their moment in the sun.
You’re welcome to tell me what I got “wrong” in the comments, but here’s a few things to keep in mind:
- I didn’t “forget” anyone. I went through lists of every Justice Leaguer multiple times, so no one was overlooked.
- The omission from this list of that character you like doesn’t make them (or you) bad, it just means there was one reason (or many) for them not to make it.
- That one character you like is stupid though, and you should feel bad for liking that one.
- You can read Morrison & Millar’s Aztek, The Ultimate Man in it’s entirety in an affordable trade.
- Justice League of America #64 and #192 are both Silver Age fun and he’s generally great in Young Justice.
- Check out Crisis on Infinite Earths to see Dr. Light’s debut.
- Mind Games collects the first 6 issues of Mr. Terrific’s introduction to the New 52.
- Aquaman: Sub-Diego is one of my all time favorite Aquaman stories and it’s newly available as a very inexpensive trade.
