The Justice League: A Super Friendly Tour - A Brave, Bold JLI

While previous animated series had chosen to focus on the Justice League of America, or simply the Justice League, Batman: The Brave and the Bold in its typical fashion gave preference to the underdog. Although both the Justice League of America and Justice Society appeared in the series, the Justice League International was the premier super team with which this Batman chose to associate.

Brave and the Bold was set post-JLA. For some reason that was never revealed, the Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman headed team had broken up leading Batman to assemble a new League to man their Earth orbiting base.

The JLI officially assembled in the episode Darkseid Descending to fend off the invasion of Apokolips. The team consisted of Batman, Blue Beetle, Booster Gold, Guy Gardner, Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, Fire and Ice

During the series final season the JLI roster continued to grow adding Rip Hunter, Captain Atom, Captain Marvel, Plastic Man, Green Arrow, and Rocket Red. 


The team also fought to earn the respect of the legacy Justice Society team and took their place along side the retired JLA as a worthy team to bear the name of Justice League.
