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?

what do you think Batman would store in a pocket in his codpiece?

Maybe kryptonite, in case Clark gets a little too aggressive/friendly? I never ship those two, but I've been here long enough to know what this crowd likes. Personally, I'm more a traditionalist. Bruce/Selina and Clark/Lois. And, though I guess you don't agree, Diana/Steve, if only when written by Marston.

I can't think of any examples of those armor skirts, either, but I know exactly what you mean.

I like your kryptonite idea. And I actually don't ship Clark and Bruce terribly hard, although I have seen a certain amount of subtext with the work of some of the comics writers (and am fond of the fan-writings of some ficcers who do ship them). Bruce/Selena and Clark/Lois are both lovely pairings, although they aren't the only ones I can see working for the characters, depending on the universe (I'll admit a certain guilty pleasure in Clark/Lex based upon the early seasons of Smallville, essentially fanworks in an alternate reality where Lex is not villainous). And I actually do like Diana/Steve, at least sometimes. Steve is pretty much the only male character I do somewhat ship Diana with, but I do see her as likely at least somewhat bisexual, if more likely to be, say a 4 or 5 on the Kinsey scale than 1-3. Diana/Steve, with the right writer, can be quite charming. And I'm glad you understood what I meant about the armor skirts! I'm really not well-versed in technical terms when it comes to armor. I can draw armor about as well as I can draw anything (which admittedly isn't all that well, but I try), but I can't describe it worth a damn (there's a reason that, professionally, I'm a scientist and not a writer - and it's the same reason that my attempts at fanfiction will never become well known). And... I just wrote a whole wall of text for you to sift through, didn't I? Sorry.
