A comic book related glass making company called "Toon Tumblers" released on their Facebook page what appears to be Jim Lee's promotional spread for the new Justice League, part of which will be used on drinking glasses given out at this years San Diego Comic Con. As a result, we now have the complete line-up of the Justice League in the wake of the relaunch:

In the center, going from left to right, are the seven members we already know:
  • Aquaman
  • Green Lantern (Hal Jordan)
  • Wonder Woman
  • Superman
  • Batman (Bruce Wayne)
  • The Flash (Barry Allen)
  • Cyborg

On the left side of the image, going from top to bottom, we have four additional members:
  • Deadman
  • The Atom (Ray Palmer)
  • Element Woman (from Flashpoint: Secret Seven)
  • Firestorm (Ronnie Raymond and Jason Rusch)

And on the right side, going from top to bottom, we have four more:
  • Green Arrow
  • Hawkman (Carter Hall)
  • A woman who could be either Zealot, Power Girl, or Miranda Shrieve (from Flashpoint: Frankenstein and the Creatures of the Unknown)
  • Mera

Call me crazy, but for some reason the redesigned costumes look a whole lot better when Jim Lee draws them.  Anyway, what do folks think?

Yes, I'd agree that is less dignified than a thong. It's not even the concept of her usual uniform that grates on me, it's the way the bottom sometimes can get smaller and smaller while the window gets bigger and bigger that does. ...Why does the random shoulder armor make me think of Saiyans? Anyways, there are too many conflicting elements in that outfit to look even remotely worth keeping, and it's an excellent example of when a thong is actually the lesser of two evils. Now, if the entire torso section was blue without the white diamond and the hole in the middle of it was gone, while also removing the funny flap thing at the neck that is presumably leftover cape material, the arm stripes were changed to red, the cape was switched to red with a blue border, the headband was removed or tones down, the industrial-strength gel was removed from her hair, the shoulder armor was either removed all together (or less likely to work: integrated with another piece or two of complimentary armor)... Yeah, I think I could salvage some of the design elements into something halfway decent, but it'd be the drawing equivalent of repairing a piece of electronics for nearly the cost of buying a new replacement one. Jeez, she's had some terrible costumes throughout the years, hasn't she? I think this is why people don't complain about the boob window more than they already do; the alternative would probably be even worse.
