The Justice League of America is described as the ultimate collection of action figures because it contains such popular characters as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, and the Green Lantern. The Justice League of America has now been going for well over fifty years and this makes it one of the most enduring. It was original called the Justice Society but by the 1960s it had changed to the Justice League.
These action figures probably reached the height of their popularity in the 1970s, but they keep on making comebacks. In 1986 the Justice League International was introduced followed by a return to Justice League America in 1996. There are rumors of a new series involving the Justice League universe to be released in the near future. The action figure series is produced by toy manufacturer Mattel.
The Justice League Unlimited line of action figures had run from 2003 right up until today; there have been 70 characters released as part of this series. The original series had Batman, Superman, The Flash, and The Green Lantern. The versions since that time have produced completely new characters or new versions of the more popular ones. As well as the good guys there are also plenty of bad guy action figures to defeat.

The story of the Justice League of American first appeared in the 1960s and there have been many variations of it since then. One reason for this is that the Justice League contains some of the most famous heroes of all time and these are well known in their own right. Superheroes like Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Flash, and the Green Lantern are all members of the Justice League of America; members of the organization have varied considerably over the years.
The Justice League of America originally came together for one mission; to save the Earth from Six aliens that were causing destruction. The mission went so well that they decided to stay around and help defend the Earth from the bad guys. The Justice League of America created a base in a secret cave near Rhode Island. From here they go on missions to defeat anyone that need sorting out. In later episodes this secret base became unsecure and so they needed to move. They also attracted more members so they needed bigger accommodation for this reason as well.
The Justice League fought the good fight for many years until they were eventually discredited by a nasty character called Darkseid. The group was forced to disband, but later many of the members created a new organization called the Justice League International which aimed to deal with more global issues.
The Good Guys
There is probably no other series that has produced as many good guys as the Justice League of America. Here are some of the original members of the team.
Superman spends most of his life living as Clarke Kent. He was born on the planet Krypton, but his home was destroyed when he was just a baby. He was sent to Earth where he was raised by the Kent family. The fact that he comes from the planet Krypton means that he has special super-human powers. He uses these special abilities to fight the bad guys when disguised as Superman.
The Martian Manhunter is an extraterrestrial humanoid from Mars who was brought to Earth against his will. He has no way to return to his home planet so he has decided to devote his life to tackling the bad guys. He takes on the identity of John Jones, but is able to use his special Martian powers to fight crime.
The Green Lantern is a wealthy business man who likes to wear a green costume when going to fight the bad guys. He has the ability to fire special arrows and he also has the green power ring that gives him special abilities.
Flash is a scientist who develops superhuman powers as a result of an accident while working in his laboratory. He develops superfast reflexes and the ability to run incredible fast. He decides to use his new talents to fight bad guys.
Wonder Woman comes from a different dimension where powerful Amazonian women rule. She loses her powers after deciding to stay on Earth and has to retrain to get them back again. As well as having great physical strength she also has great mental powers.
The Bad Guys
There have been thousands of bad guys who went up against the Justice League of America over the years. Here are some of the ones that can’t easily be forgotten. Many of these belonged to the Secret Society of Super Villains.
The Wizard grew up in the world of crime. In the beginning he was willing to just work as an underling but after a stretch in prison he decided that he was sick of taking orders and wanted to be a crime lord. He traveled to Tibet and learned some mystical skills before returning to the United States as a powerful wizard. He invented his own injustice league as a response to the Justice League of America. He wants power and is willing to destroy anyone to get it.
Captain Comet is a member of Secret Society of Super Villains. He has an extremely high IQ and has many superhuman abilities. His real name is Adam Blake and he is believed to represent the most evolved type of human. He has the many paranormal abilities such as being able to read minds. He also has incredible strength and the ability to teleport.
The Creeper was once a good guy who had the alter ego Jack Ryder. Something went wrong though and he was unable to change back and had to remain as the Creeper; this drove him to insanity and to become one of the bad guys. The creeper is fifty per cent demon and has superhuman strength and agility.
Poison Ivy was originally a talented botanist but an attempt to poison her with herbs that almost kill her but also provide her with superhuman powers. The fact that she was so close to death made Poison Ivy go insane; she ended up fighting on the side of evil. Poison Ivy is not only immune to all disease and poison but she can also make plants do her will; she can also produce deadly toxins.
Lex Luthor is an evil scientist who wants to take over the world. He has great technological expertise and he uses his knowledge to help him achieve his evil aims. His least favorite person in the world is Superman, but he will also try and destroy anyone that attempts to get in the way of his grab for power.
Professor Zoom was once known as a small-time twenty-fifth century criminal know as Eobard Thawne. He found a time capsule containing the special suit worn by Flash. He is now able to use this suit to give his special powers and allow him to commit crimes.
