New Justice League of America raises Pennsylvania flag on #1 cover

Written by Sharon Eberson on .

JLA PAflag"They aren’t the world’s greatest super heroes — they’re the most dangerous!" That's how DC Comics describes gathering of the troops in the new Justice League of America comic series, which debuts Feb. 20 with writer Geoff Johns and artist David Finch at the helm. The unlikely bunch inlcudes Green Arrow, Katana, Martian Manhunter, Simon Baz, Stargirl, Vibe, Hawkman and Catwoman.
 
To launch the series, covers that are state-specific will grace “Justice League Of America #1." Inspired by the “Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima” photo, the covers will show JLA characters with a flag for each of the 50 states and Puerto Rico. (Check out a sneak peek of the Pennsylvania cover to your left.)
 
DC teases that "The march toward 'Trinity War' begins with part one of 'World's Most Dangerous' in 'Justice League of America #1,' where the team will begin to form and secret motives will be revealed."
 
"They're underdogs who have everything to prove and something to lose," says Johns.

Beginning with "JLA #2," you also can follow a new back-up series featuring Manhunter, co-written by Matt Kindt and Johns and illustrated by Scott Clark. 
 
"The reason that Martian Manhunter is in the back-up is because of the role he'll be playing," Johns told Newsarama. "Just like Shazam will play an integral role to 'Justice League' as that continues on, Martian Manhunter is central to 'Justice League of America' and the bigger DC Universe."
