Nothing's showing up - or is that just me?

I miss the Flash.
Glad to see Hal Jordan, Superman, Batman and Black Canary, though.  Oh, yes, and Red Tornado.

No, it isn't just you - it doesn't allow remote hotlinking. Though I was able to find it somewhere else. For those that can't see the image, the new JLA roster is:

Superman
Batman
Wonder Woman
Green Lantern (Hal Jordan)
Black Canary
Red Tornado
Hawkgirl
Vixen
Black Lightning
Arsenal


To be honest, I was hoping for a little more Sattellite-era League, though the presence of the extraordinary Red Tornado and Hawkwoman are very welcome. Red Tornado is a character that during some parts of Gerry Conway got a few interesting stories that didn't go far, involving him acquiring a human identity, and it would be interesting to see these threads picked up at some point.

The Vision is easily one of the most stalwart of all Avengers; however, though he and his DC equivalent Red Tornado were introduced around the same time, Red Tornado never got as much to do as the Vision did.

I am DEEPLY disappointed that Zatanna and Elongated Man have been left off. The team won't be the same without you guys!

I do like very much they aren't just having Ollie and Dinah together; that dynamic is played out. Roy Harper and Black Canary on the other hand, now that's something totally different, a choice of Englehartian proportions!

I also like that John Jones has been left off. Not because I don't like the guy (his sensitive, stick-in-the-mud personality under Busiek's tragically brief run was the best of the character we've seen in a long time) but because I suppose Martian Manhunter has come to be seen as having a slot in any JLA roster in recent times by Divine Right, and really that isn't so.

One concern I have is that with the presence of Vixen, Arsenal and Canary the League is "agile costumed athlete" heavy, which makes the team feel more like the Avengers than JLA.

Hit 'reload' if it still doesn't come up.
