Superman. Batman. Wonder Woman. Green Arrow. Black Canary. The Creeper. Wait, the Creeper? Yes, the Creeper! Is this the most intriguing and oddball Justice League lineup ever imagined? Not quite, but it is a glorious image by the masterful Jim Aparo.
The above image was lifted from the cover of World's Finest Comics #250 from April 1978.
I'm not sure who is responsible for transposing the characters onto that dynamic orange background in the image on top, but I like it. It has a very Challenge of the Superfriends feel, I think, which makes me wonder again what cartoonish adventures these six particular DC heroes could get up to if they were ever made an official team.
