BTW, the All Star Squadron has to hold an all time record for the most members for any Superhero team ever.

I think the Legion of Super-Heroes has more.  In fact, the current incarnation has "thousands of members."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Legion_of_Super-Heroes_members

Oddly enough, Wikipedia lists 37 pre-crisis members; while Supermanica lists only 33:

That's only because the Supermanica is limited by canonical books.

BTW, did you all know that many of the members are actually now in Public Domain?

DC doesn't own them, only the DC version of them.

What about the GL Corps?  Surely many more thousands than the Legion?

The wikipedia article on the Green Lantern Corps says 7200

and here's a list:
