Profile Problems: It is becoming clear that a number of people are having problems with some of the pop-up profiles. To view them you need to make sure you have Javascript enabled in your browser. If that doesn't work then as a stop gap measure look at the URL for the link and remove the javascipt:profile(' or javascript:a2z(' before the file name and the '); after the filename. This problem has been addressed in the next generation on this site. Cheers.

Origins of Hypertime: Some of you may have seen this out on the net, others may not have. Its at article from New Scientist (a British weekly science news mag) called "Here comes hypertime". Its dated November 1997 and makes for some interesting reading - effectively the comicbook hypertime is not really that far off real physics.

Major change: Been a few months (well okay five) since I was last able to do an update to this page and I think its about time I revealed what I was upto. I've been spending a considerable peroid of time rebuilding my home computer and learning about the wonders of XML (eXtensible Markup Language). These new wonders will allow me to better manage the information and resources that go into this webpage. You'll not notice anything different at the moment, but I've put together the first stage of a "prototype page" here. I've started using CSS stylesheets to format the new page, so if anybody has problems or comments can they please let me know.

THIS WEEK: Not much of interest in the way of JLA stuff on the racks this week. However what caught my eye was part two of a three part Wonder Woman story in LEGENDS OF THE DCU by Priest. Its a complex morality play that mixes current Wonder Woman mythos with Roy Thomas All-Star/Infinity canon. Also of note is that the Hawkman and Hawkgirl double set has been released by DC Direct. I had to resist temptation on this one, I got the Hard Traveling Heroes set but deciced to hold off on the Hawks.

Well it seems that I'm beginning to pick up a little steam over the updates. With this latest update I've more or less finished the Speedster community (Impulse and Max will be done at a later date) and I can move onto the Green Lanterns. I'd like to take this chance to welcome Michael Weyer onboard. Michael has compiled a huge list of classic quotes from the Morrison/Waid era.

It all began in the winter of 1940 with the third issue of ALL-STAR COMICS. That issue contained a simple story by today's standards - a group of heroes meeting together to discuss and swap stories. However that was the genesis of the superhero groups that form the foundation of DC, Marvel, Image and a dozen smaller publishers universes. ALL-STAR COMICS #3 opened the way for teams made up of characters from different titles, it also showed us the original archetype for those teams - the Justice Society of America (JSA)

The adventure comic declined after the war as cowboys, science fiction and horror replaced the costumed heroes. After a story titled "The Mystery of the Vanishing Detectives" the JSA joined their brightly coloured friends in comic book limbo. It was the end of the Golden Age...

Wheels turned and the first appearance of Barry Allen heralded the dawn of a new age, the Silver Age. Less that a decade after the Justice Society had disappeared their legacy was realised by one of their original creators, Gardner F. Fox, as he introduced the world to the revamped heroes of DC/National, together as the Justice League of America (JLA).

Since their first appearance in BRAVE AND THE BOLD #28 the JLA has spawned three series of comics, five spin-off series and over a dozen specials and mini-series. Also the JLA has appeared in a live action TV pilot, a classic animated TV series (the Superfriends & Aquaman), guest starred on the BBC Superman Radio Play, had its own toyline (Total Justice) and for a time its own computer game.

Now fourty years after their first appearance the Justice League is reborn. A cabal of transatlantic talent including Scottish writer Grant Morrison (Animal Man, Invisibles) and his sucessor the US's own Mark Waid (The Flash, Kingdom Come) have breathed new life into the League. The main JLA title has gone from zero to be DC's best selling title. The indications are that they've only just started!
