* '''JLA''' (Grant Morrison/Howard Porter/Mark Waid/Joe Kelly/Doug Mahnke): Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash III (Wally West), Green Lantern V (Kyle Rayner), Aquaman, Martian Manhunter. In other words, the original seven (or rather, five of them and the then-current successors of the other two). Based on the Moon. Later included {{Steel}} III, ComicBook/PlasticMan, [[ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey Oracle]], [[ComicBook/NewGods Big Barda, Orion,]] Zauriel, ComicBook/{{Huntress}}, and, temporarily, Wonder Woman's mother Hippolyta instead of Diana. Main focus was the core seven (occasionally plus Plastic Man), though. Largely had to do with the idea that because the JLA is so powerful, they should be fighting harder villains than just super-terrorists. Very fondly remembered, even by those who hate everything else Creator/GrantMorrison has ever done.

* TheSmurfettePrinciple: When the ''Justice League Of America'' started in 1960, Franchise/WonderWoman was the only female member, and though not ''necessarily'' the weakest, was certainly the most resembling. At least the early Gardner Fox stories treated her like the other members, and not like TheChick. Though she soon became the secretary at the JLA's meetings, taking minutes and so on. It took almost a decade before ComicBook/BlackCanary became the second female member (and that was only after Wonder Woman had resigned; it would take several more years before there was more than one woman on the team).
** To add insult to injury, the JLA '''rejected''' a female member prior to letting Black Canary in: Hawkgirl was specifically disallowed, initially because the bylaws required they only let in one new member at a time, and they had just let in Comicbook/{{Hawkman}}. Later, she was kept out because her powers duplicated Hawkman's, so she brought nothing new to the table. Hawkman, of course, only has flight and scientific/detective skills ([[ContinuitySnarl usually]]), thus is made completely redundant by Superman and Batman, but nobody moved to kick Hawkman out on these grounds. Hawkgirl was finally allowed in in the 70s, when the writers caught up with the sexual revolution.
** While we are on the subject of Justice League, the fact that movies starring male superheroes were being greenlit left and right, and Wonder Woman's own film used to be in DevelopmentHell, did not go unnoticed until Warner Bros announced that her solo film will be released in 2017 before the Justice League movie. Considering the [[SarcasmMode runaway success]] of ''Film/{{Supergirl}}'', ''Film/BarbWire'', and ''Film/{{Catwoman}}'', it isn't exactly surprising. But that in itself is [[DoubleStandard a problem]] - a superhero movie that bombs is just that film's failure, but a superheroine movie that bombs makes movie execs fearful of ever making another one because they think that [[InsaneTrollLogic obviously superheroine movies don't make as much money]].
