WB Animation, YOUNG JUSTICE. I claim no ownership of the character or his various incarnation across the DC multiverse, this was developed from an existing template.
So here we come to my second Justice League movie idea. This would follow a DC Tier Two set of movies: A Green Lantern movie following Hal Jordan's origin and Alan Scott's retirement sin 1969; Batman: Night of Owls, which follows Batman, Nightwing and Jason Todd's efforts to take down the Court of Owls in 1980; and Superman: Fury, which takes place just a few months before this movie and follows the arrival of Supergirl, her capture by Darkseid, and Superman's efforts to save her. I envisioned this Justice League movie as a "Elaborate Plot" movie, far more so than the one set in the 60s. It opens with the members of the League breaking three CIA operatives out of a Sandinista camp in Nicaragua, and capturing a shipment of Nicaraguan cocaine for the Navy. We see the League is working more closely with the US government at the insistence of the Reagan administration. Steve Trevor's role as liason to the League is increasingly being overshadowed by the President, who likes to deal directly with Superman. The greatest enemies of the Justice League have come together to defeat them: Star Sapphire (Carrie Ferris) the ex-lover of Hal Jordan and current host to the gem of her namesake, Joker (fresh out of Akrham, and a secondary villian in Night of Owls), Priscilla Rich (a debutante and big game hunter who sees Wonder Woman as the ultimate prize), Professor Zoom (Barry Alan's boss at FermiLab who was researching the Speed Force as well), and Ocean Master (Orm) the exiled prince of Atlantis. These villains attack the League, initially framing Iris West for smuggling Cocaine, sending the League on a mission to clear her name, only for them to be broken off to fight their archenemies one by one, leaving only Superman to discover the truth of their situation.
Anyway, the Roster from left to right.
Hal Jordan: The Second Green Lantern - I wanted to keep the classic Silver Age design, I felt it fit the character nicely for the era. In this continuity, Abin Sur was traveling to Earth after the Corps finally detects the ring of Alan Scott (more accurately the ring of Tomar-Re), when he is shot down by a Soviet Missile over Siberia in 1969. An SR-71 in the area, piloted by Hal Jordan diverts to investigate, but experiences a mechanical failure and he's forced to ditch over the Taiga forest and eventually encounters Abin Sur. Meanwhile Alan Scott, having been contacted by Abin prior to his crash, travels to Russia to determine the origin of his Ring. Eventually he meets Hal, and the two discover the origin of the Lantern Corps. Alan retires, and Hal takes his place. Hal is a brash, self-assured Green Lantern, far more impulsive than his predecessor. He has trained under the Lantern Corps, and kept in contact with Alan before learning about his sexuality. Hal is by far the most conservative member of the Justice League, his dedication to duty to the League, the Corps, and Country all appear to be in service to the same goal to Hal, but seem completely in conflict to the rest of the League. He has mastered the ability to form constructs under the tutelage of the Guardians, but his dedication to the corps forced him to leave his long time lover Carrie Ferris, who's all consuming spite drew the Star Sapphire to her. Hal is the first to be split off from the League during their search for the man who framed Iris West. While searching Iris's house with Batman, he detects the energy of the Star Sapphire. Batman and Hal split up to follow separate leads, and Hal is confronted by Carrie who reveals her power and battles him while the rest of the League continues the investigation. Hal nearly kills Carrie in the fight and by the end of the film he is left
Bruce Wayne: Batman - Going on 40 years old, Bruce Wayne is still just as capable now as he was when he first took up the cowl. He's added more Kevlar to his suit as time's gone on, and the Batmobile is now more tank than car. Despite his disagreements with the League working more closely with the government, he remains a steadfast ally and friend to Superman. He's been spending more time with the League ever since he brought down the Court of Owls in the preceding years, and has delegated more of his duties to Jason Todd and Dick Grayson. He's added some new gadgetry to the utility belt, most of which wouldn't be out of place in a CIA operative's toolkit, but he still relies primarily on his fists and wits. After Searching Iris's house Bruce discovers subtle scorch marks similar to those the flash makes when he stops abruptly this sends the rest of the League after Proffessor Zoom. Shortly after Hal Leaves, Bruce finds a sample of cocaine that the police missed. Bruce returns to Gotham to analyze what he's found, only to be called by Jason who is battling the Joker. He diverts to help his ward, only to get there just in time for the Joker to turn himself in; believing all is well, he calls Jason to congratulate him, when he can't get though the Joker begins to Laugh and a nearby warehouse explodes. Batman rushes into the inferno but Jason is already dead. When he returns to question the joker, the FBI is already taking him into custody and won't allow Batman to question him. Bats later discovers that the cocaine from Iris's apartment was identical to that on the ship they intercepted from Nicaragua. As he discovers this, a news feed is intercepted by the BatComputer showing the White House publicly condemning Iris West. By the end of the film, Batman is the last one to leave the League, blaming himself for not being able to save Jason, but also for letting himself get dragged into Superman's deal with the government.
Clark Kent: Superman - Still the Kansas farm boy, and the one trying to hold the League together. Clark was approached by the Reagan administration shortly after he took office, and agreed to work with the government to calm the Public who was beginning to view the League as a threat. After leaving Bruce and Hal to search Iris's apartment, Clark and the remaining members of the Justice League searched for Professor Zoom. Using NRO satellites (provided by the Government for their cooperation) the League detects a Speed Force signature in Metropolis. Just before they can leave, Clark is contacted by the US Navy about a carrier group that is being attacked by Ocean Master in the Mid Atlantic. Aquaman is sent to deal with his brother while Clark and the others travel to Metropolis. On the way Wonder Woman breaks off to see Steve about the Government's own investigation. Zoom leads Superman and Flash to the new LexCorp building forcing them to split up. Superman reaches the top to find Lex who reveals that his friends are all being attacked right now by a legion he assembled. Superman is shocked at this, Lex and Clark had a falling out in 1973 over the death of Lana Lang, for which Lex blames Superman. This is the first time Lex has taken the role of villain, but reveals that he did not truly act alone. Lex only enabled the drugs to be planted at Iris's house, it was the government that supplied it; the agents they rescued and the shipment they stopped were all part of a CIA Arms for Cocaine operation. Lex merely provided the fall-gall in Iris. Shocked at this Revelation, Superman doesn't even notice Lex pull a shard of Kryptonite from his pocket, just before he punches Superman out the window. Superman survives the fall, and rushes to save his friends, helping them defeat their enemies one by one. He later confronts the President about the Arms for Cocaine operation, and the President admits that what he did was morally wrong, but reveals the reason behind his actions: To fund both sides of the Iran-Iraq War to keep either power from threatening energy security in the west. Superman admits that he see's his point, and bargains for Iris's release in exchange for not going to the press about the President's activities. By the end of the film he is the only member of the League remaining at the table.
Diana: Wonder Woman - Taking on a greater role as a diplomat, Diana negotiated with the US Government to provide identities for the Amazons seeking to leave Themyscira. Her relationship with Steve is strained because at 59 years old, its no longer possible for either of them to pretend his aging doesn't matter. When Diana breaks off from Superman and the League to meet Steve about the Government's investigation of Iris West, the two share a heartfelt declaration of their love, and Diana tells Steve that she intends to remain in Man's World to not only age, but live a mortal life with her friend and partner. Just as she begins to walk away a shot rings out and Steve falls over dead. She sprints to see him, but the round has passed through his heart, Steve is gone. Distraught, she hears the cackle of Priscilla Rich, the Cheetah. In her fury she cripples and nearly kills Rich just before Superman arrives to put an end to the fight. Wonder Woman is left inconsolable at loss of her partner of 40 years, and questioning everything she believes after fighting Cheetah. Could the cruelty of Man's World run so deep as to poison the hearts of women too? She is the second to leave the Justice League, and return to Themyscira in the hopes of finding peace.
Barry Alan: The Second Flash - Five years after Jay Garrick retired, Barry Alan joined a research project at FermiLab to study the Speed Force, but an accident granted him the powers of Superspeed. Unlike Jay, Barry is more focused, and isn't just seen as a Blur to the people he saves. He's more personable, and is the new heart of the league. When his wife Iris West is framed for drug trafficking, Barry's calm demeanor begins to break down, and by the end of the film he nearly dies fighting Professor Zoom. Consumed by angry and betrayal, Barry leaves the League to be with his wife, and remain a guardian of Central City, and leave the world behind.
Arthur: Aquaman - A Leaguer since their encounter in the 60s, Arthur is a boisterous, warrior-King who is the least willing to work with the US Government. As a King (of a society no administration has ever revealed the existence of) Arthur balances nobility with a devil-may-care joy of battle.
