We Can Be Heroes - Edited and rerostered by theDisappointment We Can Be Heroes - Edited and rerostered by theDisappointment
Many years ago, when these things seemed far more important than they do now, a school friend of mine told me that the X-men team could beat the Justice League in a fair fight.

Our friendship was never the same after that.

DC banner for the We Can Be Heroes charity campaign started in 2012, edited to include some additional JL favourites. Silhouettes based mostly on the art of Jim Lee and David Finch.

I started this one a while back, but it took me longer to finish than I expected. I tried to keep as true to the New 52 costumes as I could. With the obvious exception being Hawkgirl, because I'm not too fond of her new, blue Earth 2 look. Mostly because of the Helmet.

Characters listed from left to right:

Arthur "Aquaman" Curry
Hal "Green Lantern" Jordan
Dinah "Black Canary" Lance
J'onn "Martian Manhunter" J'onzz
Princess "Wonder Woman" Diana (of Themyscira)
Clark "Superman" Kent
Bruce "The Batman" Wayne
Barry "The Flash" Allen
Kendra "Hawkgirl" Saunders
Victor "Cyborg" Stone
Oliver "Green Arrow" Queen

All characters belong to DC comics and/or their original creators/writers/artists. Not to me. Unfortunately.

(Also, I'm not entirely sure "Rerostered" is a real word)

So cool. It's awesome to see Martian Manhunter get some recognition. So underutilized.

I wonder if anyone has thought to doing the inverse to this. "We Can Be Villains" with all the main antagonists like Luthor, Joker, Black Manta and the like.

Is there a non-silhouette version?

Hey, thanks for the :+fav:! No I only made this one, but it's mostly based on promotional images for Justice League by Jim Lee and JLA by David Finch.

Aww, cool.  I was curious because you included other characters and such.  Cool image, good job.  :)

Yeah he's great! Especially in Geoff Johns' recent Justice League back-up. That was one of my favorite things in the New 52 so far. However, I wasn't sure if he should be in the line-up, because he's rarely a core member of the Justice League. I was also trying (unsuccessfully) to avoid using too many male characters. There are only three women up there as it is, and nobody wants a dude-heavy JL!!
I'm about to start another version with some DC Villains, which may or may not feature Black Adam...

Thank you for the feedback!

I know,right.Because in a few shows in Young Justice ,all the other sidekicks treat him like trash.

Definitely an underrated hero. Although he might be getting his own monthly comic in 2014, possibly written by Johns', so hopefully he'll start getting the recognition he deserves! Thanks again for the comment!

Will you possibly release a larger version to use as a wallpaper?

Hey, thanks for the :+fav:! I'm not really planning to upload another version, no. Sorry. The current resolution is 1600899 though, I hoped that would be alright. Does it not look good?

Oh alright.  I use a MacBook with a 27" monitor so the resolution is a lot bigger.  Thanks though!

I would've loved to see the Atom(Ray Palmer).

theDisappointment Featured By Owner May 11, 2013
Ah, I was going to put Atom in! But since I was sticking mostly to the New 52 versions it would've been the new female atom, and I haven't really seen her do much yet. Thanks for the comment anyway, sorry to disappoint.

Also, sorry for hiding your comment, I just don't want someone to read the spoiler and be disappointed. Thanks though!

Hey again, yeah I recently finished Trinity War. I know Ray Palmer was featured as a side character in Frankenstein, so I think they definitely have plans to bring him back at some point. This does seem like a good opportunity, so maybe you're right.

I love X-men, but by power comparison DC takes Marvel for most times.

I agree. I'm an X-men fan too though, maybe I'll do another of these line-up pictures with some X-men favourites. Thanks for the comment, and the +fav!

Where's Catwoman? She's in the JLA now!

I thought about adding Catwoman, but I don't think there's room for her AND Batman on the same team. Plus, I always preferred Catwoman as a crook. I'm thinking of doing a similar piece with some DC Villains, so maybe I'll add her to that. Thanks for the comment!
