The Justice League was a team of superpowered and highly skilled individuals dedicated to protect the world from extra normal calamities, ranging from alien invasions to supernatural occurrences. The founding members all met and worked together for the first time to fight off Darkseid's invasion. Although Shazam initially gave the group the name of the Super Seven, it was later changed due to Justice League being preferred in focus groups.

In the 2020 Apokolips War film, the Justice League were all but destroyed along with the Teen Titans, Suicide Squad and the rest of the New 52 Earth.

History[]

Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox[]

The Flashpoint version

This movie creates a universe that will take you all the Justice League War throughout the end of the universe. Flash started a universe with all superheroes that will soon become the Justice League (That happens in Justice League War and Justice League: Throne of Atlantis).

Flash (Barry Allen) was stuck on the road without gas with his mother (Nora Allen). Barry was on his way home from school ( BTW it was Nora's Birthday) but when he stepped foot into his house, there was his mother, blood everywhere, glass is broken, the house was ruined. Police were at their home while Barry was still on the fact that his mother was murdered. (Into the movie, you'll know who murder his mother and his childhood). We have a funeral for Barry's mother.

Nora Allen' s Birthday (Graveyard)

Barry is all grown now and he has a wife name (Iris West). Barry feels like he could’ve run a little bit faster, he could’ve been there to save his mother. Iris reminds him that it’s not his fault and reminds him what his mother said: "Accept the things you cannot changes." He gets a notification from the Justice League and he’s on the run.

Justice League: War[]

When Darkseid invaded Earth with his Parademons several superheroes, including the likes of Superman, Batman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Cyborg and Shazam banded together to stop him.[1]

The Hall of Justice was under construction (in Metropolis which is in Delaware, America) at this point, with statues dedicated to the seven heroes. Until then STAR. Labs became the home of Cyborg and was occasionally visited by Steve Trevor who had been made the liaison with the league. Shazam is known to have visited the Hall as he enjoyed being part of a team. As Cyborg pointed out, at this point the Justice League is nothing more than a lie the human race has told itself to make it feel safer; Batman prefers to be solo, Green Lantern has an entire quadrant of space to monitor.[2]

Justice League: Throne of Atlantis[]

In Throne of Atlantis, tensions rise between the long-thought-mythical underwater city of Atlantis and the surface world. The Justice League investigates an Atlantean attack on a military submarine near the Mariana Trench, and concluded that the attacks must be of Atlantean origin.

The Justice League investigates and researches rumors and myths surrounding Atlantis, leading them to a half-human-half-Atlantean man named Arthur Curry. The team locate Arthur mid-fight, and assist him and another Atlantean warrior to fight off an assassination attempt, carried out by Trench Dwellers and orchestrated by Arthur's half-brother Orm. Orm was attempting a coup in Atlantis, murdering his mother (the Queen of Atlantis), and orchestrating an assassination of the Queen's firstborn, Arthur, who may have a legitimate claim to the Throne.

After Orm successfully seizes control of Atlantis, he blames his mother's murder on surface dwellers, and rallies the full might of the Atlanean military, and the power of the Royal Trident of Atlantis to wage war against the surface. The Justice League teams up with Arthur to neutralize the threat, and bring peace between Atlantis and the Surface.

After a long fight, Cyborg uses his technology to replay a memory of when Orm admitted his murder of the Queen of Atlantis in an attempt to seize power, broadcasted to the entire Atlantean army. Arthur then proceeds to best Orm in single combat, and seize control of the Trident. He then rallies the Atlantean army behind him, and promises to lead Atlantis to a peaceful future with the surface world.

The Justice League, Arthur, and the Atlantean army return to Atlantis for Arthur's coronation. The team concludes that they should solidify their team with weekly meetings, and Arthur conveys his wish to join the team to maintain a connection to the surface world. The Justice League agrees, and the movie ends with Arthur and Mera (his Atlantean love interest, and a member of the royal guard), enthusiastically preparing to defend the city against an army of Trench Dwellers.

The Justice League eventually move to a new base of operations called, the Hall of Justice. Which is paid for by United Nations grants and the Wayne Foundation. The hall was attacked by Lex Luthor and his Legion of Doom. However they were defeated by Superman, Wonder Woman and the The Flash.

Justice League vs. Teen Titans[]

In Justice League vs. Teen Titans, the League (excluding Green Lantern, Aquaman, and Shazam) work together with the Titans to defend the world against the imminent invasion from Raven's father, Trigon. Trigon sends his minions to Earth to possess powerful members of the Justice league, and searching the Infernal Shrine to force Raven to open a portal for Trigon to enter Earth and conquer the planet.

With most of the League Members possessed by demons, and Raven captured and forced to begin summoning Trigon, the Titans must work together to free the League and Raven, and stop Trigon. They successfully injure Superman with kryptonite which expels the demon from his body. Superman proceeds to break Flash's leg, which expels the demon from his body. Superman then proceeds to use Wonder Woman's Lasso of Truth, to compel Wonder Woman to admit who she really is, Diana of Themyscira, expelling the demon from her body. Together the League and the Titans reach Raven who admits that she's already summoned Trigon.

Knowing the only way to stop him was to seal him in a crystal from Hell, Raven teleports herself, Starfire, Robin Damian, Cyborg, Blue Beetle, and Beast Boy to Trigon's realm to find the crystal that he can be sealed in. The rest of the Justice League proceed to try and stop Trigon as he rampages through a City in the Middle East, destroying everything in sight. The League fails to stop Trigon, but the Titans and Cyborg succeed in finding the crystal in Trigon's realm and Raven seals him away.

The movie ends with the League commending the Titans on their performance throughout Trigon's Invasion. Cyborg treats the Titan's to pizza, and Raven is seen with Trigon's Crystal attached to her forehead, where she can observe and maintain the prison in person, while maintaining her participation with the Titans.

New Members[]

At some point following the battle with Trigon. J'onn J'onzz, the Martian Manhunter and Carter Hall, Hawkman joined the league. John Stewart who’s also a Green Lantern of Earth is also classed as a member if and when himself and Hal Jordan have to trade duties.

Justice League Dark[]

Numerous people around the world suddenly go berserk, claiming to see ordinary people as demons. This results in several deaths and injuries. Wonder Woman stops a woman driving madly after having a vision. Superman finds a husband has gone mad and killed his neighbors, and threatening his family. Batman saves a baby girl from her mother, who thinks she gave birth to a demon; however, he’s unable to prevent the mother from committing suicide. Due to their past experiences with magical beings like Xerxes, Felix Faust and Trigon, most of the League believe a magician is responsible for the madness. However, Batman firmly believes they should try considering it simple madness, not the result of someone tampering with minds with the use of magic.

Batman goes solo to seek John Constantine's help in finding answers. He also teams up with Zatanna, Deadman, Jason Blood/Etrigan, Black Orchid and Swamp Thing, forming the secondary division of the League, the Justice League Dark. When Destiny begins causing madness around Gotham, the League becomes infected, forcing Zatanna to hold them at bay.

Once Destiny is defeated, the League invite Zatanna and Constantine to join. Zatanna accepts the offer, while Constantine prefers to stay away from the "tights and capes crew." After Zatanna tells Constantine that it was Batman's idea, a shocked Constantine accepts.

The Death of Superman[]

In their first scene of this film, there were at a regular staff meeting at the Hall of Justice, with Cyborg reading various Daily Planet News headlines. After the meeting, Batman announces that he’ll be attending a parent-teacher conference about Damian Wayne, his son, while the Flash announces he’s getting married.

When the animalistic alien and demon being known as Doomsday went on a spree of killing and destruction, the Justice League attempted to stop him. However, Doomsday strength proved to be overwhelming as he defeated each and every member, until only Superman was left to stop him.

After Superman’s death, all the Justice League members (excluding Batman and Shazam) attended his funeral.

Reign of the Supermen[]

Following the events of Superman's death, the league now lead by Batman, attempts to launch the Justice League Watchtower.

Justice League Dark: Apokolips War[]

The Justice League appears to discuss Superman's plans to launch a direct attack on Darkseid and Apokolips. Despite Lex Luthor's and John Constantine's disagreements, Superman is adamant on ending Darkseid as he plans to invade Earth again sooner or later. Leaving the Earth in the care of the Teen Titans, the Justice League depart for Apokolips. Upon arriving, they’re ambushed by a large horde of Paradooms, genetic hybrids of Parademons and Doomsday. Despite the League's best efforts, they’re completely decimated. Hal Jordan, Aquaman, and Zatanna were killed, John Constantine, Lex Luthor, and Shazam escape, and the remaining members were captured as Darkseid had plans for them. Batman was strapped to a Mobius chair, tortured and brainwashed to become Darkseid's right-hand man, Superman was left depowered after being injected by liquid Kryptonite, The Flash was forced to endlessly run on a treadmill to serve as a power generator, and Cyborg was forced to subjugate into Apokolips itself, becoming subservient to Darkseid. The remaining members, consisting of Wonder Woman, Mera, Martian Manhunter, Hawkman, and Starfire (from the Paradooms' later invasion of Earth when the Teen Titans were killed) were brainwashed, equipped with cybernetic body parts to replace body parts torn off during the battle, and became Darkseid's Furies.

Two years later, Lois Lane acts as the leader and organizer of the resistance force, consisting of surviving members of the Justice League, Titans, and the Suicide Squad upon forming an alliance with them. In the later battles with the Paradooms, Shazam, Steel, Superboy, Batwing, Batgirl, Batwoman, Black Orchid, Swamp Thing, Lex Luthor, Lois Lane, and the Suicide Squad have all been killed. With the resistance force infiltrating Apokolips, they succeed in freeing the Furies, Flash, Batman, and Cyborg from Darkseid's control, and they return to Earth. Cyborg sacrifices himself to imprison Darkseid, and Superman regains his powers after Trigon takes control of his body and inadvertently removes the liquid Kryptonite.

In the epilogue, the Justice League consists of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Hawkman, Martian Manhunter, Mera, Starfire, Flash, Robin, Raven, and John Constantine; all other members have been killed. Due to the hopelessness of their situation, Flash is convinced to run back in time and create a second Flashpoint, wanting to clear the board and reset the timeline. Thus, the DCAMU ceases to exist, and the fate of the current Justice League remains unknown.
