I question some of those versuses. The flying guy can't do much against the swimming guy. And Katana versus girl-Superman? No.

Katana is one of the world's foremost martial artists. She's not to be underestimated. Wonder Woman can overpower her yes, but Katana would give her a vicious fight before that happened.

Except for the Martian Manhunter not a single one of the JLA has a chance against his/her JL counter.

I also don't get why a team created to be an alternative to the Justice League also has to called the Justice League. If I decide to go off and create an alternate Star Trek themed message board I wouldn't name it TrekBBSofAmerica.com.

You guys are thinking physical counter-parts...and not strategic counterparts. It's not all about power levels here Perhaps there is some psychological aspects to this as well. *Shrugs*.

She also has a magic sword.

Vibe can cancel out Flash's speed powers.

Was that a tiny female Atom in Justice League? Has she been seen before (other than last month)?

That one never really makes much sense to me, does it matter how good your martial arts are if you are still only human? Unless you do a lot of jobbing (or have a magic sword as mentioned above), really someone who moves much faster than a human and can survive bullets (which will impact with much force that the human hand) will still make mincemeat out of you.

That is one of the things I liked about "for the man who has everything", when mongul turns up, Batman didn't even attempt to fight him because "that's out of our league". If that story was written today, he'd push wonder woman out of the way and wrestle him to the ground.

JMS does something similar when he has Spider-man beat the shit out of the kingpin because he is only human and Peter isn't.

I also forgot about the magic sword that'd probably help against Superman as well since I believe Clark is still vulnerable to magic in the 52'Verse.

Having read Katana #1 she would be easily beaten by just about anyone. Her inclusion in the JLA will probably end when her book does.

Actually you have got it reversed. The book was a result of her inclusion into the JLA. The same for Vibe.

One of the lower points of her previous book.

I think it's a pretty cool name.
