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?

Could someone explain HOW Wonder Woman's new costume doesn't look like Wonder Woman? I mean, I get it, "waah waah she has to wear pants!" But...she's a tall, Amazonian brunette wearing a tiara, a =W=/eagle symbol, and a golden lasso. That's Wonder Woman. It meets ALL the requirements.

I think it's the altered color-scheme that is somewhat off-putting to some people. It's like if Aquaman's scaley armor shirt thing was suddenly yellow instead of orange. Or Batman showed up at a crime scene in his rainbow uniform without a canon explanation (heck, what if the gray parts of his uniform were navy instead?). It's like how people reacted to the Electric Superman suit, kind of, I think, or Spiderman's black cloth-version-of-the-symbiote suit or the yellow & red SI one during Civil War. Changing up a much-used color combo on a superhero uniform causes some double-takes at the very least, even if it still has classic design elements that means that it theoretically meets all the requirements. What would you think if Green Lantern was suddenly wearing lime green instead of forest green, otherwise largely unchanged in appearance? He still meets ALL the requirements. Even if he either doesn't really look like Green Lantern so much, or looks like he lost a fight with a bottle of bleach, LOL.

Oh, and FYI, I like that Wonder Woman gets pants. ;P I just wish that they were a very dark shade of blue instead of black. Or at the very least, that her boots were red, maybe. And I don't know that I've ever seen a version that used silver, and not gold, for any metallic accents other than the bracelets/gauntlets of any version of Wonder Woman in the past (if you recall one, please let me know, and maybe include a picture if you have one?).
