    Here's another version of the OP's picture that contains the full frame from the comic panel. In it, the left & right frames are not obscured. – user31178 Aug 27 '15 at 20:32

    What I am surprised by is not a single one of you mentioned the name of this quintessential super-team, The Justice League. In addition, each of these photographs shows a particular iteration of the Justice League: The original Justice League of America, Justice League Detroit, Justice League Unlimited, Justice League of America (expanded ranks) and the JLA (the branding for the comic series at the time). – Thaddeus Howze Aug 27 '15 at 20:46
  • @Thaddeus Maybe you can tell us why Martian Manhunter is in every one of those background pictures, but not in the new one? – Jack B Nimble Aug 27 '15 at 21:51

    Because DC wanted to legitimize the inclusion of the Wildstorm superhero group, The Authority (Stormwatch), which was integrated into the New 52 universe. The Martian Manhunter is leading Stormwatch. - img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20140108004502/marvel_dc/images/8/… – Thaddeus Howze Aug 27 '15 at 21:55

    To be fair, at the time Roy Harper was Red Arrow, not Speedy...and I'm not just saying that to increase the rep on my answer...really...I'm not... – Splitting Adam Aug 26 '15 at 20:37

    Black Lightning, and not Static Shock? – TylerH Aug 27 '15 at 21:39
  • @TylerH It is definitely Black Lightning. Static Shock has a lightning bolt on his chest. – Jack B Nimble Aug 27 '15 at 21:41
  • @JackBNimble Oh. I thought that was a lightning bolt on Black Lightning's chest. I guess it's DC's version of Static Shock – TylerH Aug 27 '15 at 21:57

    @TylerH: Static is part of the extended DC universe. And Black Lightning far predates him. – FuzzyBoots Aug 27 '15 at 22:15

The foreground image is the initial line-up of the Justice League team seen in Justice League of America (2006). The image comes from issue #7 of that series.

The photographs seen on the wall around those team members show the membership of the team from other times in the group's history.

Front and Center:

  • Green Lantern (Hal Jordan)
  • Wonder Woman
  • Superman
  • Batman
  • Black Canary
  • Hawk Girl
  • Black Lightning
  • Red Arrow (Roy Harper, otherwise known as Speedy or Arsenal)
  • Vixen
  • Red Tornado

Top left framed image: - This represents the original membership of the Justice League of America, as they first appeared in The Brave and the Bold (1955) #28 (cover-dated February/March 1960):

  • Martian Manhunter
  • Batman
  • Aquaman
  • Wonder Woman
  • Superman
  • The Flash (Barry Allen)
  • Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) - obscured

Middle left framed image: - This represents the Justice League's membership during the "satellite era" (when they moved from a headquarters in a cave to a satellite headquarters, circa Justice League of America (1960) #78-232). Technically, Martian Manhunter and Snapper Carr were not members of the League during this time, but both made occasional appearances. I was unable to find this image, but I suspect it appeared somewhere around issue #200 (in which both Martian Manhunter and Snapper Carr appeared, and which had art by George Perez, who looks like the artist of this piece).

  • Batman
  • The Elongated Man
  • Firestorm
  • Hawkgirl
  • Green Lantern (Hal Jordan)
  • Snapper Carr ~
  • Superman - obscured
  • Wonder Woman - obscured
  • Red Tornado - obscured
  • Martian Manhunter - obscured
  • The Flash (Barry Allen) - obscured
  • Zatanna - obscured
  • HawkMan - obscured
  • The Atom - obscured
  • Aquaman - obscured
  • Green Arrow - obscured
  • Black Canary - obscured

Top center framed image: - This represents the "Detroit" era of the Justice League. Following the destruction of the satellite headquarters, current League chairman Aquaman decided the League should only consist of full-time members; only the four previous members below remained, with four relative newcomers joining. Their new headquarters was in Detroit. This version of the League was active in Justice League of America (1960) 233-261, following their introduction in Justice League of America Annual #2 (which is where the image comes from).

  • Zatanna
  • Aquaman
  • The Elongated Man
  • Martian Manhunter
  • Gypsy
  • Steel
  • Vibe
  • Vixen - obscured

Top right framed image: - This represents the version of the League seen in Justice League (1987) (The title changed to Justice League International with issue # 7, and Justice League America with issue #26). The image is from the cover of issue #1.

  • Doctor Light,
  • Oberon
  • Blue Beetle
  • Green Lantern (Guy Gardner)
  • Mr. Miracle
  • Batman
  • Black Canary - obscured
  • Doctor Fate - obscured
  • Captain Marvel - obscured
  • Martian Manhunter - obscured

Middle right framed image: - This image represents the version of the Justice League from JLA (1997). Grant Morrison returned to the original 7 League members (or the characters who had taken over for them) as the core team for his run.

  • Aquaman
  • Martian Manhunter
  • Batman
  • Wonder Woman
  • Superman
  • Green Lantern (Kyle Rayner) - obscured
  • The Flash (Wally West) - obscured

~ Special thanks to Mike Edenfield for identifying Snapper Carr for me.

    With such perseverance and attention to detail, I'm surprised you didn't qualify parenthetically that the foreground Green Lantern is Hal Jordan. Tsk tsk. I'd give you +infinity for this, but I can't...so +1. – Praxis Aug 26 '15 at 23:18

    What about the painting in the middle center? ;^) – Holger Aug 27 '15 at 7:47

    I like how this question went from a negative score yesterday to a positive one today because of Jack's answer. – kjw Aug 27 '15 at 16:22

    @JackBNimble - still, though, I'm afraid there's just not enough detail here for an upvote. – Omegacron Aug 27 '15 at 20:22

    @Omegacron You are dead to me. – Jack B Nimble Aug 27 '15 at 20:30
