How Strong are the Rebirth Justice League

So assuming that I am correct in what it seems Rebirth has done, then all of Earth 1's feats should apply to the characters. As such I wanted to make a quick blog to explore the power of The Justice League....in particular the 7 original founding members:

  1. Superman
  2. Batman
  3. Wonder Woman
  4. Green Lantern
  5. The Flash
  6. Aquaman
  7. Martian Manhunter

So how strong are they, assuming I'm right? I'll try to stick to relevant stuff (best stat feats and haxes). This is only what I know, but hopefully it is of use. 

Superman (Clark Kent):

Physical Stats:
Heat Vision: 
Speed-Based Powers:
Martial Arts:
Vibration Attack:
  • In Final Crisis, Superman uses his superintelligence to calculate and then his supervoice to cancel out the vibrations of Darkseid's strings. This is True Form Darkseid too, albeit dying True Form Darkseid. This attack wipes Darkseid from existence. 
Superflare Attack:
There are probably a bunch more in Pre-Crisis. That is the era that I am least knowledgeable in due to it's length. 

Batman (Bruce Wayne):

Martial Arts:
Other Technques:
A New 52 Armor, and his strongest Armor, made to go up against Darkseid himself.
So, something about Wonder Woman not understood. Her power comes from the Gods, and the more Gods rest their power in her, the more powerful she becomes. Without their favor, she loses all her powers. Her normal state is her gaining power from the goddess Athena, who is the Patron of the Amazons.

Physical Stats:
Equipment-Lasso of Truth:
Green Lantern (Hal Jordan):

Physical Stats:
Matter Manipulation:

Mental Manipulation:
A Specific Version of Hal Jordan....not the current version so I'm not including it's feats here, but for the record Hal has become powerful enough to cause one of the major DC Crisis, Zero Hour.

The Flash (Barry Allen):

Swan made an amazing RT for him already that still holds after the Rebirth:

Aquaman (Arthur Curry):

Hook Hand:
Waterbearer Hand:
Martian Manhunter (J'onn J'onzz)

  • Yes. This is a real thing. Technically it's just molecular control on an extremely fine level but still.
In Conclusion....

Respect The Justice League.

Cartoons Good for Japanese Audience

Please note that the rest of this after this sentence is a translation of an old web page I found in Japanese:

Hello! I have become interested in Foreigner "Cartoons" and wanted to help give suggestions for what Foreigner "Cartoons" would be most well-received amount the majority of Japanese. Anime is looked down upon. It is not true that the West loves those who likes anime, however it is more kindly received then here. Both countries associated animation with childishness, however in Japan this is seen as irresponsible, and in especially America childishness is seen as having some benefit. The following is not true for all Japanese! But in general, we see these things be well-received in Foreigner Works: 

  • Higher Animation Quality then our Anime, as Western Shows often have more workers and more budget!
  • Heroes of Virtue and Villains of Evil, as opposed to Heroes of Selfishness. 
  • Serious Recurring Villains and Comical Once-Appearing Villains, like Our Sentai
  • Because most "Cartoon" watchers here are Male, Technology and Wuxia are better then Magic
  • Cute Girls, especially if they have powers! The Dashing Bishonen (Hard to translate) can also be helpful! 
  • Silent Cartoons are well-received as well
  • Clear Influence of Japan
  • "Team" Shows.
  • A Diversity of Peoples (Races) relatively rare to Japan.

These things however may be unpleasant to our audience that are more common in Foreigner Works:
  • Rebelliousness and Unruly-ness. Depicting the Government as evil.
  • Related to above, parents or grandparents being shown as cruel or incompetent. Portrayed positively is very good on the other hand 
  • Highely Irresonspible Protagonists 
  • Works that focus on the individual, as opposed to team
  • The Excessive Loudness and Crudeness. 

Specific Shows I have found that are pleasing to Japan


  • Disney Shows that are connected to a major Disney Movie
  • Kim Possible
  • Dave the Barbarian
  • American Dragon: Jake Long
Cartoon Network:
  • Samurai Jack
  • The Powerpuff Girls
  • Codename: Kids Next Door
  • Teen Titans
  • Ben 10
  • Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi
  • Code Lyoko
  • Robot Boy
  • Danny Phantom
  • My Life as a Teenage Robot
  • The Xs
  • Spongebob Squarepants

Other: (I am not so knowledgeable yet! Sorry)
  • Transformers
  • Tom and Jerry
  • [Jet-family] Cartoons
  • Jem and the Holograms
  • Betty Boop cartoons
