Writers James Robinson and David Goyer, along with penciller Stephen Sadowski, gave readers an update on the founding fathers of the super-team with this JSA series - the first to feature a roster hailing from various generations. Besides founding Golden Age heroes Green Lantern (Alan Scott), Wildcat (Ted Grant), and the Flash (Jay Garrick), the team also featured a host of newcomers and second generation heroes. Black Canary (Dinah Lance) joined the group, straight from the silver age, as did the grown up Golden Age hero Sand, and former Infinity Inc. member Atom Smasher (formerly Nuklon). Starman joined the fledgling team as well, along with other newcomers Hourman (from the pages of JLA), Hawkgirl, and the new Star-Spangled Kid. It was an impressive line up that would shift and change over the course of the title's successful 87 issue run, as members of the team passed the torch to other new members. Perhaps more importantly, the title's original writers would also pass the torch to a new writer.
