The Justice Society of America: Coming to Smallville

by at . Comments

Wonder Twins Zan and Jayna will arrive on episode eight of the new season of Smallville.

But they aren't the only comic book character appearing on the show this winter.

As first reported by TV Guide Magazine, the Justice Society of America will come out of retirement to deliver “the screwed-up guys of the next generation a needed smack down,” said comic book scribs Geoff Johns. “They’re the Mystery heroes who started it all–like the Watchmen.”

Created by DC Comics, the organization is comprised of members that include Hawkman, Spectre, Doctor Fate and the Atom.

Justice Society of America

The Justice Society of America is a World War II-era unit of older superheroes that exist in an alternate reality. Johns hasn't revealed which members he’s writing in to the mid-season episode, but the original Flash and the original Green Lantern will not be among them.

“It’s going to be about them coming out of retirement to give these screwed up guys of the next generation a needed smack-down," Johns said.

Smallville Quotes

Clark: She saw it.
Nurse: Saw what?
Clark: Her future.

Clark: Lois, sometimes you can see things that I can't. And when you walked away I thought because you couldn't bring yourself to be the one to stand in between me and my destiny.
Lois: Well, here's the thing about that: I can be loud, and at times I'm a little bossy. So someone might wonder why a person of your God-like caliber would be with a woman who is so imperfect. Well don't take this the wrong way but you come with some baggage of your own and it's made me a better person. Just like being with me will make you a greater man and a superhero.
