I'd Have Kept the International Part of the Justice League

I never really got the problem some writers had with the concept of the Justice League working with the United Nations.

I mean, yeah, there might be some bureacracy, but not the way that some of these comic writers seemed to make it out to be.

And a nice function of the United Nations relationship is that it allowed characters like Maxwell Lord and Catherine Cobert to have an actual FUNCTION, ya know?

That was another thing I never got, the anger people had towards characters like Lord and Cobert. I thought they were interesting characters.

I liked that too.

I wasn't a fan of Max's at first but he grew on me.

And I'd never have changed him as he was presented after Giffen & DeMatteis' run.

I think the problem with Max is that he was not in the comics that the writers grew up reading, and they hate him for it. I think. I mean, if I wrote the Justice League, they'd be a gigantic multi-national superhero army like in JLU. They'd have a beuracratic mechanism to get them the money and allow them the ability to go blow up stuff in Mumbai or whatever. But I just wouldn't touch on it much. Because that would be stupid in a JLA comic.
