Considering the "human in a bat themed suit" seems to be the only adult in the room with the NuJLA I'd take him over the other yahoos.
Aquaman and Wonder Woman haven't entered the room yet. Remains to be seen if their backgrounds in leadership ( they are after all royalty) factor into things and how "adult" they will be portrayed. Given Johns "Aqua-love" of late, Arthur might get the nod.

I have to admit, it would be kind of interesting and cool to see WW lead the group for once. Don't have a good enough read yet on what this current version is like, but the WW of the JLU cartoon was certainly strong and capable enough.

It's very interesting that Johns is writing Justice League because there is of course the following characters he has written in it: Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), The Flash (Barry Allen), Superman (Clark Kent), Cyborg (Vic Stone) (Teen Titans and Flashpoint), and finally Aquaman (Arthur Curry). Arthur (really because Mera though) and Vic are his latest personal projects. It will be interesting to see how he writes Diana of five years ago, her book takes place in the 52 Verse present, I'm guessing she might be a little more like her Justice League animated series when we first meet her...and Johns hasn't much experience writing Batman. He wrote the script for Batman: Earth One one assumes before he started work on Justice League.

Yeah, but this is five years ago.

Still, making Batman the leader would make some sense. Whatever qualities he brings to that would give him something to do besides being the obvious weak link to be stepped on.
You want to ruin all my fun.

I think Aquaman should be leader of The Justice League.

I mean, he's pretty much useless so why not let him feel like he's contributing?

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

I liked Hal informing Barry that Batman is real and "He's a total tool."

Seriously, though, Bats seems the natural to organize and lead these folks. He's demonstrating that he thinks things through more than the others, because he does have to avoid that nasty getting-stepped-on-by-gods thing. There are inevitably going to be many times when he can't be in the middle of whatever fight's going down, so let him strategize and call the plays.

^ Like I said though his obsession with putting Gotham first in his war on crime is the only thing keeping him leading the league. The thing with Justice League International is different since it is already part an ongoing investigation and we know he's not the leader in Batman, Inc. So it will be interesting to see what happens at the end of the origin arc and when we flash forward at the start of issue seven.

I hope Johns keeps to the "Hal/Bruce tolerate one another at best" thing. It has always made a lot of sense to me, even eliminating Emerald Twilight from consideration.

You'd think the Space Cop and the Science Cop would be Batman's best pals.

Barry and Bruce have been close before...as Barry mentioned in Flashpoint according to him they would talk all the time about forensics and stuff. Bruce hasn't really been friendly towards Hal since Parallax.

Barry, Hal, Bruce and Katar should have formed a Law and Order wing of the JLA.

^ That'd be kind of awesome. Just with regards again to the leadership debate (i guess we're having our own in here ) Justice League Dark seems to have hinted a little bit about this in the first issue with Superman, Wonder Woman, and Cyborg appearing. I think there was someone else (I know Bruce was dealing with Zee) maybe it was Hal.

To quote Green Arrow "You're mysterious, but its a loud type of mysterious".

Batman likes honest cops. Hal seems to be an honest cop.

[python]Batman: My chief weapon is surprise...surprise and fear...fear and surprise.... two weapons are fear and surprise...and ruthless efficiency.... My *three* weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency...and an almost fanatical devotion to Justice.... My *four*...no... *Amongst* my weapons.... Amongst my weaponry...are such elements as fear, surprise.... I'll come in again.[/python]

Thats pretty much how Geoff Johns framed the dichatomy between Bruce and Hal in Rebirth and in Blackest Night. He made fun of the last bit between light and dark in Blackest Night 0.
