Justice League 3001 – A League Of Their Own (SPOILERS)

A League Of Their Own is a 1992 American comedy-drama film that tells a fictionalized account of the real-life All-American Girls Professional Baseball League.

Justice League 3000 debuted as a comic book with a number of characters reviving classic Justice League members as flawed clones of themselves in the far future. However, as issue by issue has passed and the comic was relaunched as Justice League 3001, a curious change has come over the book.

The men have gone away. Some have left the book, some have had their heads blown off their shoulders, some are now women. And replacements have joined the team.

Which means you now have Wonder Woman and Guy Gardner Green Lantern from the original team 0 – though Guy is now in a woman's body and his mind has merged somewhat with the woman who his clone's DNA was implanted upon. Then we have a female Flash, Fire and Ice, Supergirl and a new Batman – a young woman in a mega super Bat suit.

And suddenly you are left with the realisation that Keith Giffen and JM DeMatteis planned an all-female superhero team by stealth, replacing one man with a woman, issue by issue.

They don't make it that obvious, there is in big splash page with all the characters, you only get this final silhouette…

But while Marvel have been making a big thing of the upcoming A-Force series, DC Comics have just snuck it in, hiding in plain sight….
