The Judgment League Avengers, sometimes referred to as the JLA for short, are an Amalgam Comics superhero team. They are a combination of DC Comics' Justice League and Marvel Comics' Avengers, and made their first true debut in "JLX" #1, though in the Amalgam universe, their first (metafictional) appearance was in "JLA" #1.

Fictional history

Dr. Strangefate brought the original Judgment League Avengers roster together to stop an undisclosed enemy (which may have been the Skulk), the original team consisting of Canary, Angelhawk, Iron Lantern, and the Mariner. These events occurred during "JLA" #1. The five members did not stay together for long, as Dr. Strangefate left the team before "JLA" #4.

As the series moved on, the JLA's roster expanded. In "JLA" #2, Goliath and Myx joined the team, though Myx only stayed until the end of the issue, leaving after realizing his intolerance of superheroes. Somewhere between "JLA" #2 and "JLA" #4, Captain Marvel also joined the team, and Iron Lantern may have left the team during that period of time. In "JLA" #4, the team discovered and thawed out the frozen body of Super-Soldier, who promptly joined the JLA.

In the miniseries "JLA: The New Blood", Apollo, Firebird, Mercury, Runaway, Wraith, and Nightcreeper were all metamutants, also called mutants, who became the newest members of the JLA. The mutants and non-mutants eventually discovered that their views on certain things varied, and their relationships were tested when Will Magnus framed the Mariner, who was also a mutant, for the destruction of a number of Roxxon oil tankers. The Mariner goes on the run, and when S.H.I.E.L.D. failed to capture him, the JLA was asked to capture him. They succeeded, and this was the last straw for the New Blood members of the JLA.

With the assistance of the mysterious Mister X, the New Blood freed the Mariner from where he was being held. Taking the name of JLX, the New Blood members and the Mariner fought an epic battle against the current members of the Judgment League Avengers, which at the time consisted of Super-Soldier, Dark Claw, Captain Marvel, Angelhawk, Goliath, Canary, and Hawkeye. The battle was stopped when Angelhawk faked an injury, as Angelhawk himself was secretly a mutant. Angelhawk later ended up joining the JLX during its first series, "JLX".

*The JLX is a team consisting primarily of former metamutant JLA members that made their first appearance in "JLA Annual" #13.
