Members of JSA

DC FanDome was an unprecedented success, leaving fans gasping and asking for more.

One of the most anticipated panels was the Black Adam panel, and it was delivered.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who is playing Black Adam, revealed that members of the Justice Society were confirmed for the movie.

Noah Centineo, who plays Atom Smasher also made an appearance and hyped audiences before a teaser, showcasing the rise of Black Adam through concept art, was revealed.

Given that the JSA is slated to appear with members like Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Atom Smasher, and the young Cyclone. With that in mind, here are the strongest JSA members of all time:

Starman

Starman has had a strong, complicated but rich legacy when it comes to the JSA. Scientist Ted Knight fought crime with his cosmic rod and his sons David and Jack followed in his footsteps for a while.

Then came Thom Kallor with his mental health issues with his density manipulation powers who went on to become a beloved fixture of this group.

Thom is capable of controlling the gravity, mass, and density of any object, making him a force to be reckoned with.

Obsidian and Jade

Obsidian and Jade are the son and daughter of Alan Scott and Rose Canton also known as the first Green Lantern in comics, and the supervillain Thorn.

While Todd Rice, Obsidian uses tangible shadows and darkness to fight evil, his sister Jade uses the same green energy (and later the star heart, a magical stone) like her father to manipulate and create green hard light constructs to counter threats.

Jade was also briefly made Ion, the wielder of the green entity. Individually they’re strong. Together, they’re insanely difficult to beat. 

Green Lantern

Green Lantern is the elder statesman in the JSA along with Dr. Fate, Hawkman, Starman, and The Flash.

Don’t let his age fool you. He might just be over a hundred years old. But do not let that fool you in any way.

Decades of mastery and experience with the magical star heart ring have kept Alan Scott alive and well and always ready to take on new challenges and threats to humanity.

 The Flash

Jay Garrick was at one point in time, the fastest man alive.

Along with the JSA, Garrick continues to live a rich and adventure-filled life as one of the elder statesmen of the JSA.

Jay might not be as fast as Barry or Wally but given the right conditions, the first flash is a force to be reckoned with.

We’ve seen him steal the speed of extremely fast individuals like Superman and Black Adam and render them immobile.

Fighting a speedster standing still is not always the best of ideas. He’s also a veteran in understanding and using the speed force. 

Black Adam

Dwayne Johnson Reveals First Look at His Black Adam Costume

Hail Black Adam! Ruler of Kahndaq!

For a brief period, this villain/ anti-hero was a member of the Justice Society. He wasn’t given the warmest of welcomes though.

However, Adam began a strong friendship with Atom Smasher and insisted on being given a chance to prove his heroic worth.

Adam’s actions would lead to the events of classic JSA storylines such as “Black Reign” and “World War III”.

Shazam

Captain Marvel, now known as Shazam, became a prominent fixture of the Justice Society in the 2000s.

He joined the team to keep an eye on Black Adam if he ever went rogue but quickly became integral to the team. He left the team after the team confronted him when he was seen dating Stargirl.

Shazam and Black Adam are colossally strong with their powers coming from the Greek and Egyptian pantheons respectively.

While they are usually seen at loggerheads, Shazam has that slight edge over Adam, given that at one point he replaced the Wizard as the keeper of the rock of eternity. 

Johnny Thunder/ Jakeem Thunder
