I've been wanting to make this video for ages, but waited until I had the Season 9 DVD, and then, it wasn't until I was rewatching Season 10's "Shield" that I finally got around to doing it. The JSA in both the comics and Smallvile continuity was the organisation of superheroes that predated the Justice League by several decades - in the comics, from around the 1950s, whereas in Smallville, it's insinuated to be the late 70s, early 80s. The group was introduced in Smallville in the telemovies "Absolute Justice" during Season 9, featuring Carter Hall [Hawkman], Sylvester Pemberton [Star-Spangled Kid], Kent Nelson [Dr. Fate], Wesley Dodds [Sandman]. and Courtney Whitmore [Stargirl], among others (Sahar Biniaz as the deceased Shayera Hol [Hawkgirl] was introduced in the Season 10 episode "Shield"), They team up with the proto-Justice League to investigate when Pemberton and Dodds are murdered by the son of one of the team's old villians, the Icicle. When the mission is complete, the group decides to stay and continue to fight the good fight, alongside their new counterparts. Alas, the only surviving member of the group now, is Courtney, after the deaths of both Nelson and Carter during Season 9 and 10, but I thought it would be nice to do a kind of tribute opening credits video, if things had been different. Starring: Michael Shanks as Carter Hall Britt Irvin as Courtney Whitmore Jim Shield as Sylvester Pemberton Sahar Biniaz as Shayera Hol [clip from Sanctuary Season 2 Finale] Ken Lawson as Wesley Dodds and Brent Stait as Kent Nelson Theme used is the original theme for the Justice League cartoon, before it's revamp in Justice League Unlimited. No copyright infringement intended, this video is a tibute to the show Smallville and character introduced, I do not own any footage or music used in the video, they are the property of the true respective owners.
