A high concept comic book series written and drawn by Darwyn Cooke (under the title ''DC: The New Frontier''), later adapted as an animated film. It ran from 2003 to 2004.

Instead of reimagining the classic superheroes as they would be today, Cooke created a story firmly set in the [[TheFifties 1950s]] and took the superheroes as they were in TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks and made them believable. Even the art work itself is very similar to comics of that era, with only the layout being modernized. The plotline is broad-ranging, featuring dozens of characters in the {{DC Universe}} including {{Superman}}, {{Batman}}, WonderWoman, GreenLantern, TheFlash, MartianManhunter and many more.

Part of this experiment was Cooke trying to figure out a reason why various characters changed in the switch between TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks and TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks. It was easy enough with {{Legacy Character}}s like GreenLantern, but Batman went from a dark and menacing figure who wore grey and black into someone more kid-friendly with blue and yellow highlights. In the story, Batman changes it after frightening a child he was trying to help, rather than the criminals he wants to scare.

The story took the paranoia associated with [=McCarthyism=] and how it would affect the costumed heroes. "Idealistic" heroes like Superman and Wonder Woman were forced to sign loyalty pacts, while Batman remained underground and outside any government control. Even Wonder Woman started to ignore "Man's World" and returned to Paradise Island.

Hal Jordan is a fighter pilot for TheKoreanWar who was shot down, then recruited for a mystery space program. He is soon contacted by a dying alien and given the Green Lantern ring.

The Flash found himself struggling to remain doing his super-heroics without bending to the will of the government, so he announced his intention to stop being a hero altogether on television.

A scientist's experiment results in a alien being teleported from Mars. The scientist suffers from a heart attack and dies, and the Martian gradually assimilates himself into human culture using his shapeshifting abilities but is ever aware of his desire to return home.

While all these internal struggles continued, a monster slowly descends upon civilization. It has psychic powers that leaves miscelleneous people (and the Martian) aware of its existence. As the threat grows in intensity everyone, both superhero and the government, set aside their problems to confront this menace as a united League.

The comic was given an animated DirectToVideo film adaptation in 2008, with the voices of [[Series/{{Angel}} David Boreanaz]] as Hal Jordan, Kyle [=MacLachlan=] as Superman, [[LawAndOrder Jeremy Sisto]] as Batman, [[XenaWarriorPrincess Lucy Lawless]] as Wonder Woman and Creator/NeilPatrickHarris as The Flash. KeithDavid's baritone voiced the omninous and faceless Center. The film was produced by veteran {{DCAU}} man Bruce Timm and paid strict attention to the comic, lifting the majority of dialogue and scenes from the comic straight into the film. Unfortunately the film was only 70 minutes long and many story points had to be cut out.

Critical reception was enormously positive, the only complaint being how short the film was. Compared to other DTV comic book films, including those from {{Marvel}} and prior DC videos, this film was considered a breakthrough for mature WesternAnimation.
----
!!This story provides examples of:
* AdaptationDistillation: There were almost no storylines omitted entirely from the comic to movie; even those that were taken out had a passing mention. This is especially notable due to the short length of the movie. In just 75 minutes they managed to give in-depth origin stories to Green Lantern and Martian Manhunter while giving ample screentime Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman and the Flash and driving the main story forward.
* AmericaSavesTheDay
* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler: Try as he might, John Henry can't beat the Klan]].
* BadassBoast: "You really think you can hit me? It's been tried before." -- The Flash, to a soldier pointing a rifle at his head, ''from point blank range''.
** Batman delivers a memorable one to Martian Manhunter when they first meet:
---> "''My instincts tell me that you're to be trusted. But make no mistake: I have a $70000 sliver of radioactive meteor to stop [[{{Superman}} the one from Metropolis]]... all I would need with you is a penny for a book of matches''."
* BadassNormal: The American government has started recruiting these to make up for the lack of superheroes, so these show up a lot. Let's see, there's the Challengers Of The Unknown, The Blackhawks, The Suicide Squad, The Losers, King Faraday, The Sea Devils, GreenArrow... and Batman, of course.
* BigNo: The Center.
* CassandraTruth: AdamStrange tries to warn Earth about the Center, but is locked up in [[BedlamHouse Arkham]]. The government is still afraid of him, though.
* ClicheStorm[=/=]{{Troperiffic}}: {{In-Universe}}; MartianManhunter bases his human identity of John Jones on detective shows. As a result, John Jones is the single most over-the-top detective you have ever seen. Slam Bradley thinks he's ridiculous, but likes him since he's one of the few good cops in Gotham.
* ColdWar: Hence the SuperRegistrationAct
* CowboyCop: Wonder Woman. Superman, too. He's just discreet about it.
* {{Cult}}: The unnamed purple robed men under the thrall of the Center that Batman dispatches.
* DeathSeeker: The entirety of Task Force X, hence the nickname "Suicide Squad." Also Hal Jordan and John Cloud, though Hal gets over it.
** The trope is deconstructed, as the problems with relying on such unstable individuals are addressed. [[spoiler: Jess Bright loses it, sabotages the spacecraft in mid-mission, and causes an international crisis]].
* DeepSouth: Part of the story deals with John Henry, an African-American vigilante who takes on TheKlan.
* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler: Superman]].
* DoWithHimAsYouWill: WonderWoman frees a group of sex slaves, disarms their captors, [[TheDogBitesBack and lets them decide what to do next.]]
* [[spoiler: DyingMomentOfAwesome: King Faraday (in the movie)/John Cloud (in the comic) jumps into a T-Rex's mouth with a pair of live hand grenades]]. Notably, the comic scene is the current page image for the trope.
* {{Eagleland}}: A central theme. It's a Type 2, but eventually evolves into a type 1.
* EarnYourHappyEnding
* EldritchAbomination
* EnemyMine: Somewhat subverted. The superheroes came to help the military, but they want nothing to do with them. A soldier even threatens to shoot Flash if they don't leave. Fortunately, Superman arrives to stop it and calls them out for continuing their petty hatred with one another while the world is in danger.
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: No. [[EldritchAbomination It is not]].
* FireForgedFriends: The Martian Manhunter and Faraday.
* GoodIsNotNice: King Faraday and pre-Robin Batman. Wonder Woman is a relatively mild case.
* GondorCallsForAid
* HeroicBSOD: Hal Jordan spends most of the story in one over killing a Korean soldier in self-defense. To make it worse, at that point he knew that the war was over, but couldn't communicate it to the soldier.
* HeroicSacrifice: Col. Rick Flagg and Faraday.
* HumansAreBastards: The reason for the Center to destroy them all. The first atomic bombs were the last straw. Also the reason why Martian Manhunter chose to return to Mars.
* IronicEcho: "There's the door, [[{{Superman}} spaceman]]."
* KidAppealCharacter: In-universe, even: after terrifying a child he saves, Batman undergoes a radical image change through a costume update and the adoption of Robin, claiming that he's out to scare "criminals, not children".
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: Comic book only. After gathering evidence on the Center, Batman decides that he's not cut out for cosmic beings and Gotham keeps him too busy as it is, so he hands the evidence over to a guy who can deal with it: [[spoiler: Superman]].
* LetsYouAndHimFight: A Superman vs. Batman fight broke over the SuperRegistrationAct. Batman won. [[spoiler: Though it turns out the fight was staged so Superman wouldn't have to arrest his buddy]].
* TheMenInBlack: King Faraday.
* MyFistForgivesYou: Flash is able to work with Faraday despite Faraday trying to arrest him. You know, after Flash [[CrowningMomentOfFunny punches him in the face]].
* MythologyGag: Captain Nathaniel Adam sacrifices himself by detonating the atomic bomb he's carrying. Don't worry, [[CaptainAtom he'll get better]], eventually.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: JohnFKennedy is never named, even in the credits, but the voice at the end of the movie sounds just like him, and gives a modified version of JFK's [[MeaningfulName New Frontier speech]]
** Ted Grant defends his title against a [[MuhammadAli young black fighter named Clay]] but we never learn Clay's first name or see his face and he's also at least eight years older than Ali. In the movie he ''looks'' like Ali but is renamed [[CreatorCameo "Cooke."]]
* NoSympathy: After Flash's public retirement, some people don't care or glad he quit. This was the last straw for Martian Manhunter in his decision to return to Mars.
* PoorCommunicationKills: The whole reason Hal had to kill in self-defense was because the North Korean jet pilots and ground soldiers hadn't learned that the Korean War had ended.
* RaygunGothic
* RRatedOpening
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: It ''actually'' slides during the course of the story. It starts pretty cynical, but slowly gets more idealistic as the story progresses. How idealistic? The story ends with ''the friggin' formation of the '''{{Justice League of America}}''''', that's how much.
* StartsWithASuicide: The film opens with a writer of a children's book, who is aware of the BigBad, shooting himself in the face in despair.
* StoryboardingTheApocalypse: A particularly creepy example, wherein the Center's plans for humanity are communicated via the writings of a children's author -- specifically, a Dr. Seuss {{Expy}}. Who then shoots himself.
* SuperRegistrationAct
* SupportingProtagonist: Subverted. Hal Jordan doesn't have a huge impact on the story at first. But then, he is [[GreenLantern Hal Jordan]].
* TechnicalPacifist: Hal Jordan gets a lot of flak for this since he's in the Air Force. He eventually decides it's okay to kill in self-defense. (And even before then, he sets enemy pilots up to be shot down, apparently feeling that this isn't the same as doing it himself.)
* TrainingThePeacefulVillagers: We never get to see it, but Wonder Woman trains a group of freed sex slaves in anticipation of a coming war.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Faraday reveals [[spoiler:Hourman]] is still alive and in a government cell, but he's never seen or mentioned again. Not even after the world's saved and everyone decides to work together.
* WhatHaveIBecome: Part of Batman's motivation in changing his look and methods. He realizes that he's taken the dark avenger thing a little ''too'' far and has become a monster to the very people he's trying to protect.
-->'''Batman''': Let's just say I dress this way to scare criminals. Not children.
* WhatTheHellHero: Superman is shocked that Wonder Woman freed slaves and sat by and watched as they killed their masters. Wonder Woman argues that it was necessary for them to get their pride back, and that she's doing more than Superman is about it.
* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Central City appears to be in Illinois, given that one character refers to its resident superhero as "the Illinois Flash."
* WorldOfBadass: One of the main reasons the book is so awesome is that it works ''really'' hard to show you that Superman and Batman aren't the only badasses in the DCU.
