    Moving to Canada or Kooey-Kooey-Kooey doesnt really do anything for me. Just make the team interesting.

    Jeff Lemire on JLC sounds great. He is knocking it out of the park with Animal Man.

    I really really like to try to give creators the benefit of the doubt, but I don't know if I can get over this one.
    Seriously, WTF were they thinking here?
    My only exposure to the character so far has been in Superman: TAS and Young Justice, but even that is enough for me to know that this is all wrong.

    I'd never seen that version before. I've read a fair amount about him on the web, and I've only ever seen the big biker version of the character.

    Seriously if you read the response by the writer, she pretty much says it's not in the book:

    When this kind of stuff happens I always feel sorry for the people like her, who were either not involved or barely involved, but still end up taking the majority of the abuse.

    This has got to be some gimmick storyline like Sinestro as Green Lantern...

    This makes:

    Justice League
    Justice League Dark
    Justice League International
    Justice League America
    Justice League Canada

    so far.

    Why? The League has been "of America", "Europe", "International", "America" and "Antarctica" in the past. What make's Canada so weird?. Lemire hinted it was part of a larger storyline.

    @theenglish..."Justice League of America" is being renamed "Justice League Canada". They're not adding a new book, and this has some kind of repercussions from Forever Evil so maybe the villains force this team out of America for some reason.

    Right, renamed less than a year into the series as a gimmick to boost sales. Not a good sign.
