Hawkgirl/Covergirl Collection Update #70

The idea behind variant covers is to get the buyer to buy two copies of the same comic book and I confess to having fallen for that scheme more than once. At any rate, this time around I present two copies of Justice League of America (2006 2nd Series) #7. The covers are two halves that together present a group photo all the heroes who were members of the Justice League in 2007. Hawkgirl appears on the first cover along Red Arrow (formerly known as “Speedy”), Black Canary, Superman & Batman. One the “B” variant is Red Tornado, Black Lightning, Vixen, Batman, Wonder Woman, & Green Lantern. Behind the current group are pictures of the past JL teams: the original Justice League of America, Justice League Detroit, Justice League, & Justice League International.

The first six issues of this run were for introductions and presenting the existential threat that requires there to be such a thing as the Justice League of America. It is in this issue that the new League is formed and finalized. In between the covers is a centerfold group photo of the JLA of 2007. Here is Kendra’s pose from that group photo.
