    Default Justice Society Poll II: Who are your favorite members (1961-1999)?

    Based on the characters that were "honorary members" or guests during the Golden Age run, as well as additions / changes to the membership that occurred between their Silver Age return and 1999 (just before JSA: Secret Files and Origins #1), which of these were your favorite members of the Justice Society of America?
    Choices are:
    Superman (Clark Kent / Kal-L)
    Batman (Bruce Wayne)
    Red Tornado (Ma Hunkel) #1
    Wildcat (Ted Grant)
    Mr. Terrific (Terry Sloane)
    Robin (Dick Grayson)
    Red Tornado (later named "John Smith) #2
    Star-Spangled Kid (Sylvester Pemberton)
    Power Girl (Karen Starr / Kara Zor-L)
    Huntress (Helena Wayne)
    Miss America (Joan Dale / later Joan Dale Trevor; 1st retconned replacement for Wonder Woman)
    Hawkgirl (Shiera Sanders Hall)
    Hippolyta (2nd retconned replacement for Wonder Woman)
    Again, no limit on how many you may choose, but you might want to try and keep it to no more than, say, eight?
    (Seems like a fair number since there were eight members originally . . . two each from four different comic book titles.)

    (Nor the title, since Black Adam wasn't in the JSA series when it first started.)

    Major Hoy, I'm looking forward to a possible Part III poll from 2000-2011. Especially since it seemed that everyone and their third-cousin was a member of the Society towards the end (Flashpoint).

    When I do a Part III, it would only cover the JSA run (1999-2006).
    Polls here have a limit to the number of choices.

    I dont consider the Super/Power Girl and Huntress characters who showed up in Earth 2 to be the characters they claimed to be. Neither character would have taken the name Supergirl or Robin. In fact, Kara was opposed to being called Supergirl. I would love for these two characters to return should DC do an Earth 2 proper title.

    However, this thread / poll isn't for all Golden Age / Earth-2 characters. This thread / poll (which is Part II in a series of polls / threads) deals with certain heroes that were in the Justice Society of America during a specific span of time.

    Well, sine this thread isn't titled simply "Justice Society: Who are your favorite members from all time?", one might think about what the "Poll II" and "1961-1999" parts of the title mean.
    And, as mentioned in the original post,

    Now, if you've never happened to create a poll on this forum, you also may not be aware that there is a limit of 15 options available. Since I wanted to create polls about which members people like, breaking down the 77 year history of the Justice Society of America in to smaller sections seemed the more reasonable way to go.

    Oh, I disagree entirely with you about "the Super/Power Girl and Huntress characters who showed up in Earth 2" not being "the characters they claimed to be. Neither character would have taken the name Supergirl or Robin. In fact, Kara was opposed to being called Supergirl".
    It's just that the two female characters seen in Worlds' Finest and the Earth 2 titles during the New52 aren't the same characters we had before Flashpoint (or, in Helena Wayne's case, before the end of Crisis on Infinite Earths). None of those Earth 2 series characters were exactly the same as their Golden Age (and beyond) counterparts, not even Michael Holt. They were "re-imagined" / "rebooted" versions and were separate characters from the actual characters we read about before the New52.
