Them's the Rules

JLA Charter 1

JLA Charter 2

Charter 3

I don't know why, but I love this these things. Do any of the big publishers still put stuff like this together when they come up with a series bible?

from The Amazing World of DC Comics #14

That's weird, there's nothing in there about sitting around calling each other by their first names...

FUN FACT: I made a JLA Membership Certificate for a friend of mine and framed it for Christmas one year. It's rad.

I know I've got the Legion constitution somewhere... letters page of the old series? Who's Who in the LSH? I don't know which box to open, but I know I have one.

I love that stuff too.

Wait, the charter refers to John Stewart as 'Black Lantern'? Ooh, boy.

And Charley Parker's on there? They probably gave him the honorary spot out of pity, but I bet they regretted that one when he start showing up on the satelite all the time...

Wow! Free life insurance! Who WOULDN'T want to join up!

Wait, isn't Sue Dibney an honorary member as well?

And if you die, and are removed from the service, you can't rejoin when you return from the dead? That would mean that most of the members aren't eligible!

Does anyone know if the Wayne Foundation still funds the JLA in modern continuity?

Although this was published in Amazing World of DC Comics it's not really the case that the publisher put it together as part of a series bible. Mark Gruenwald wrote this (and all the other stuff in that issue) on his own as a JLA fan, and it impressed certain DC staffers enough that they acquired it for AWODCC.

Of course, Gruenwald was the sort of person who did this sort of thing, and he continued in this same direction after he became an editor at Marvel, as the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe demonstrates.

That's really cool. Everything I've read about Gruenwald has implied that he never lost his sense of wonderment when it came to comics. That it never really became old-hat to him.
