An Introduction to Justice League Characters

The debate on whether Marvel and DC have better superheroes continues to rage on without a conclusion in sight. Both these comic giants have their own superheroes with respective superpowers to battle against the never-ending assault of powerful supervillains. On the side of DC Comics, the most well-known assembly of superheroes is known as the Justice League, comprising of the popular characters in the DC universe. Justice League has emerged as a franchise of its own, comprising of various merchandise including bags, video games, movies, and animated series.

Below is a brief description of the staple Justice League members you should know about.

Superman (Clark Kent)

Arguably the most popular superhero in the list, if not the entire DC superheroes roster, Superman is also often referred as the Big Blue Boy Scout, the Man of Steel, and the Man of Tomorrow. He was born as Kal-El on the planet Krypton and was rocketed to planet Earth as an infant, moments before the destruction of his home planet. Adopted by a farm couple, the child was raised as under the name of Clark Kent, an identity that he uses to hide his true identity in his later years. Even during his early years, Clark displayed various superhuman abilities which he eventually masters and uses for the benefit of humanity through the “Superman” moniker.

Superman has a variety of superhuman abilities at his disposal which he uses to defeat his enemies and protect humans with. These powers include superhuman speed, superhuman strength, invulnerability, superior vision (X-ray microscopic, telescopic, and infrared), flight, and many more.

Batman (Bruce Wayne)

Batman is the only founding member of the Justice League that technically does not have superhuman abilities. Bruce Wayne is a wealthy American philanthropist and owner of Wayne Enterprises. After witnessing the murder of his parents at a young age, he swore vengeance against criminals. As he does not have superpowers, he trained himself physically and intellectually. He also donned a bat-inspired persona to hide his identity when fighting crime.

Wonder Woman (Princess Diana)

The only female Justice League founders, Princess Diana is the Ambassador of the Amazon people. When outside of her homeland of Themyscira, she adopts a civilian identity Diana Prince. Wonder Woman is bestowed with an arsenal of advanced technology such as the Lasso of Truth and a pair of indestructible bracelets. Her Amazonian training enabled her to develop skills in tactics, hunting, and combat.

The Flash (Barry Allen)

Fighting alongside Superman in the Justice League is The Flash. His power consists of superhuman speed, being able to run at ten times the speed of light. The Flash is easily distinctive due to his red and gold costume that is designed to resist friction and wind resistance. His speed also provides secondary applications including generating cyclones by spinning his arms quickly. The Flash is also immune to telepathic attacks as he can shift his thoughts faster than normal types.

Green Lantern (Hal Jordan)

Another founding member of the Justice League that fights alongside Superman is Hal Jordan, also known as Green Lantern. Hal is a member of an intergalactic police force known as the Green Lantern Corps. He combats against evil forces across the universe with a power ring that grants its carrier the ability to channel their willpower to create all types of fantastical constructs such as weapons, swords, and lasers.
