* DorkAge: Invoked in-universe. During Morrison's run, Triumph's return is loaded with characters mocking him for his duration on the team, citing that it was loaded with "losers and also-rans" and the villains they fought were just terrorists and space maniacs. Triumph spends most of his time saying it's not fair that the current League got the glory, the better headquarters, and the better villains.

* EigenPlot: A staple of the Gardner Fox era, and [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in Steve Engelhart's run in an issue where Aquaman, the Atom, and Elongated Man reflect on the way they seem to be in the League entirely for those moments where only their powers can contribute.


Added DiffLines:

* OhCrap: So many, so many examples. A memorable one happens in ''Justice League United'' when the team runs into a band of bounty hunters. Kara is ''giddy'' because she has to punch them. Animal Man... is not giddy. At all.
-->'''ComicBook/GreenArrow:''' Sardath said this space station was a bit rough... be ready for anything. Supergirl, I hear voices through that door, can you see through it with your X-Ray vision?\\
'''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}:''' Oh... This is going to be fun!\\
'''Green Arrow:''' Hmmm... What is it, Supergirl? A few alien thugs?\\
'''Supergirl:''' (smiling) No. Much better than that... Bounty hunters. '''Lots''' of them.\\
'''Animal Man:''' ... Oh Crapballs.

Green Arrow, the main character in ''Cry For Justice'', was a member for the first few issues, until certain events in ''Cry For Justice'' caught up with him.

* '''The Post-ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis League''' (Brad Meltzer/Ed Benes/Dwayne [=McDuffie=]): Varied but seemed similar to the Satellite version, except they were now based in the [[WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}} Hall Of Justice]]. Started out with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern II/IV (either Hal or John Stewart), Vixen, Black Canary II, Red Tornado II, Comicbook/BlackLightning, Red Arrow, and Hawkgirl (Kendra Saunders); Geo-Force was often pictured as part of this lineup, but he never actually joined, he just played a minor part in their first story arc.

* '''Justice League[=/=]ComicBook/JusticeLeagueInternational/Justice League America''' (Keith Giffen/J.M. [=DeMatteis=]): Created after the events of the ''[[ComicBook/LegendsDC Legends]]'' CrisisCrossover. Officially, started with a (probably editorially mandated) lineup of Batman, Martian Manhunter, Green Lantern III (Guy Gardner), Black Canary II, [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]], Dr. Light III (Kimiyo Hoshi), ComicBook/BlueBeetle II (Ted Kord), [[ComicBook/NewGods Mr. Miracle]] (with his 'manager', Oberon), and ComicBook/DoctorFate II, a lineup that showed off the possibilities of the new continuity by featuring characters previously from four different Earths. The writers had different ideas; Doctor Light never actually joined (until much later), Doctor Fate and Captain Marvel were gone within six issues, and the stories soon took on a generally humorous tone that did not, at first, sit well with some fans. ComicBook/BoosterGold, ComicBook/CaptainAtom, Rocket Red #7 (Vladimir Mikoyan), Fire, and Ice were among the first of [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters many]] to join as those same elements of humor quickly made the series a fan favorite. After the events of ''Invasion!'', as well as the opening of Justice League Europe (see below), JLI was renamed "Justice League America" (no "of"). After Giffen and [=DeMatteis=] left the series following the "Breakdowns" arc, the series struggled along as writers such as Dan Jurgens, Dan Vado, and Gerard Jones tried to keep the book and its spin-offs afloat with little success.

* CrossOver: [[ComicBook/JLAAvengers The crossover]] with Comicbook/TheAvengers is the most famous but the team has also crossed over with the ComicBook/XMen during ''All Access'', a sequel to ''Marvel Vs. DC''. They also had a crossover with the ComicBook/{{WildCATS}} before Wildstorm went to DC. A 2017 crossover with Creator/BOOMStudios unites the team with the ComicBook/MightyMorphinPowerRangers.

** ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' - As the name suggests, the movie sets up the origins of the League, with focus on the Trinity (Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman) and cameos of the other members via the footage Bruce Wayne steals to Lex Luthor.

** '''The [[ComicBook/PostCrisis Post-Crisis]]/Year One League''' (Mark Waid): Like most things in the DCU, this was retconned after ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths''. In this version of the team's history, Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman were no longer founding members of the League, but Black Canary II was. Following the events of ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'', Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman were restored as founding members; it's not entirely clear whether Black Canary remains as an eighth founder, or joined later as she did in the original continuity.
