It was a new dawn for the heroes of Earth 0. Having survived the Death Metal Crisis and the Dark Crisis, everyone had been through so much that they simply needed a fresh start. But being a superhero never ceases. In this life, you don't get a break. The League, among all the heroes, had been through the ringer. Most of the prominent and founding members had been briefly turned into weapons powering their own worlds by Pariah.
The League's A-Team, led by J'onn J'onzz the Martian Manhunter and including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Hawkwoman, the first Aquaman, Green Lantern John Stewart, and The Flash Barry Allen had been called away. The Legion of Superheroes of the 31st Century were facing their toughest bout yet against the forces of the Fatal Five, and they needed the heroes they admired from eons past to assist them in their darkest hour.
But, back in the present day, Earth wasn't exactly peaceful and prosperous. Villains took notice of the founding Leaguers being absent, and they began to step up their recklessness across the world. Fortunately, the world has many heroes. The Justice League left one of their most trusted members, the Flash Wally West, as the leader and the one who would assemble a new Justice League in their stead. Not only was Wally the Fastest Man Alive, but he was one of the smartest also. No matter the threat he would face, Wally knew exactly who would be on his team.
Simply calling them over JL communication devices would be too slow and impersonal. He hoped beyond anything that the new Justice League could be personal and of the people. Wally quickly gathered seven note cards, wrote the message up, dropped them in the hands of each member across the country, and was back at the Hall of Justice before the second hand moved five ticks on the clock. His message was simple:
"'Meet at the Hall of Justice in one hour.' -Wally West"
By the time the hour was up, all seven of the recruits had entered the Hall and they looked around at each other. Everyone smiled and was proud of how far each person had come. Some of them had been heroes for decades, some of them were much newer in comparison. "Thank you all for coming," Wally said. He was excited to see everyone had accepted his invitation. "As you all know, J'onn tasked me with forming a new League from among the reserve members. I'll introduce each one of you for those of you who haven't worked together in the past."
"Wally West, the Flash, the fastest man alive, but I've worked with each of you in the past.
Captain Nathaniel Adam, Captain Atom, as strong as Superman and has complete control over all forms of energy.
M'gann M'orzz, Miss Martian, a shape-shifting telepath who will keep us all mentally linked during missions.
Pat O'Brian, Plastic Man, indestructible and can turn his body into anything imaginable.
Carter Hall, Hawkman, has lived a thousand lifetimes, is an expert detective, and his symbiotic metal gives him a wealth of abilities.
Kaldur'ahm, Aquaman, can make water constructs and has the sea at his command.
Ty Long, Longshadow, extremely strong and can grow to planetary scale.
And Jessica Cruz, Green Lantern, the bravest Green Lantern of them all. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the core ranks of the Justice League! Let's go save the world."
