Well, this week was SUPPOSED to have an issue of ‘Doomsday Clock’ which returned the Justice Society of America to the canon, but thanks to delays, all we get is a preview and the mess than was the latest issue of ‘Heroes In Crisis.’  Still, the idea of having the JSA back makes me quite happy, as I’ve been a fan of them since the days of the All-Star Squadron, and I can’t imagine the team without founding member Jay “The Flash” Garrick.  Others have opined the the group MUST have Hawkman, and some support The Green Lantern, which all leads to today’s boogie-woogie bugle query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) will concede that modern JSA stories kind of need Stargirl/Star-Spangled Kid, if only to have someone who isn’t a nonagenarian, asking: Which member of the Justice Society is ABSOLUTELY necessary for a successful revival?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    Jay or Alan has to be there, but to revive the team in modern comics you need Star Girl. Just the right kind of character: likable, young and perfect as an inexperienced but idealistic team leader. Grampa heroes will fit perfectly to mentor role.
