Justice League of America #32 - Dec. 1964

sgHawkman and Superman learn a lot about each other in this issue. Welcome to the JLA, Carter!

The story: "Attack of the Star-Bolt Warrior!" by Gardner Fox, Mike Sekowsky, and Bernard Sachs. The debut of a new villain, the goofily-attired Brainstorm, who forces the JLA--or some of it, at least--to watch as he executes Green Lantern for the murder of this brother!

Roll Call: Superman, Batman, Flash, Green Lantern, Atom, Hawkman

Notable Moments: Brainstorm debuts in what will be the first of many appearances in the DCU.

I think Fox felt a lot more comfortable writing Hawkman, since he appeared a lot in subsequent issues, much moreso than a lot of the older members.

The letters page header changes again. Atom is still not re-drawn, but Hawkman has been added, by what looks like Murphy Anderson:
sg...it's getting crowded in there!

I used to wear a hat similar to Brainstorm's to school.

Hey, at least The Atom has been colored in!

Sort of...

I always hated this story. When Brainstorm tells the JLA that he has captured one of them for murder, I remember Batman and the others saying, "Who? None of us would commit murder! Who?" When Brainstorm tells them it's Green Lantern, they say, "Of all of us, it can't be GL!!" I always thought, "Huh? Then which JLAer *might* have been capable of murder?? I mean seriously!"

I think if I had to cast Brainstorm in a JLA movie I'd use Jon Waters...

Brainstorm....yeah, we haven't quite made it up to the Legion of Doom quality villains yet, but at least he gets a costume. Hey, if they run out of room in the Mail Room, they can always just kick Snapper Carr out!
