Justice League: (Old) West
After reading Jonah Hex #1, this question was posed to me:
"If The Justice League were composed of DC Comics' Western Heroes, who would be on the team?"
Instantly, I thought that Jonah Hex would fill the Batman role perfectly. Next, I thought, "Who would be The Flash?" This fella came to mind almost immediately.
Nighthawk and Cinnamon would be a natural lock for Hawkman and Hawkwoman with "Pow-Wow" Smith acting as The Martian Manhunter. You know, the whole "trapped between two worlds" thing and all...
or I have to ask, "By lumping them all together, do we diminish these heroes by trying to make them what we need them to be?"
Before there were Wonder Women and Supermen to take care of The DC Universe, ordinary men and women took up arms it upon themselves to make a hard world better.
Either way I think they're pretty damned special. What do you all think?
