Justice League of America
While the JLA have way more team members then movie Avengers I believe I can still present a very good story out of it. I am NOT a fan of DC comics New52 while I acknowledge there are some good books I do not like it with the Justice League line-up; specifically Cyborg’s inclusion as I feel it disrupts with the original 7 members of the justice League stand for and hopefully I can present that in story what they mean.
Wonder woman= peace
Green Lantern = will power
Martian Manhunter= community
These 7 are the pillars of the DC universe the example by which the others follow.

Seeing this as a chance for greatness, Loki accepts.

They board the Javelin jet to return to base and on their way back to S.T.A.R. Labs they are attacked by Aquaman!
the look is inspired by Marvel’s Namor when he was possessed by the Pheonix and Jason Mamoa’s cinematic Aquaman. I don’t like long hair on swimmers sure Aquaman is special but more hair slows him down so i made it shorter. I prefer the Waterbearer hand over the trident also i wanted Aquaman to be the rest of the team with his symbol on his chest and yeah I know the water-bearer is on the wrong side in the upper right drawing. That’s going to happen a lot.

While Stark and Banner work on locating the Tesseract, Stark is intrigued by Banner’s level of control over the Hulk and shocks him to see how he would react. Rogers is clearly annoyed by Stark’s erratic behavior and disrespect towards authority, and tries to get him to follow orders more carefully, instigating a rivalry between the two. Amidst their arguments, they begin to question S.H.I.E.L.D.’s intentions, deducing that Fury was hiding something regarding their plans with the Tesseract.
