History

Born out of response to an impending invasion of Earth by the armies of Apokolips, a new incarnation of Justice League International was founded by Batman. Along with Batman, other members of the previous League were brought in: Aquaman, Booster Gold, Fire, and Martian Manhunter. While the likes of Blue Beetle, Ice, and Guy Gardner proved themselves worthy of the invitation. However, Aquaman was apprehensive after how the previous League ended. Martian Manhunter was designated the team's strategist but he also took to bringing the Watchtower back online and fully operational. The new League's first mission was a near failure when they were almost immediately captured and then defeated by Darkseid. Only the Question's last minute intervention saved them. Nonetheless, despite being an unconventional team, it has the potential to be something special.

After Batman was turned into a vampire by Dala, he was unable to suppress the dark hunger within. He called an emergency meeting, perhaps in hope the League would stop him, at the Watchtower. All except Green Lantern responded to the call. Despite some concern for Batman, the team played along and were all turned into vampire minions except for Martian Manhunter. Etrigan later teleported into the Watchtower and helped Manhunter restore everyone back to normal by changing the base's orbit and drifting it towards the Sun. Batman recovered in the medical bay.

Batman, Aquaman, Green Arrow, Captain Marvel, and Martian Manhunter team up to stop Kanjar Ro from blowing up a planet However, Batman gets injured badly causing him to be in the care of Martian Manhunter But, the criminals of Gotham soon learns about Batman being injured after seeing Aquaman's new memoir So, Green Arrow, Captain Marvel, Plastic Man, and Aquaman takes over for Batman they end up getting captured by Joker where Batman makes an exoskeleton suit and escapes Manhunter's care to take down Joker after that, Batman continues to fight crime with the 4 heroes and Batmen of the Multiverse.

Once the Batman Revenge Squad began assassinating Batmen of various time periods, Batman of the 21st century was erased from the space-time continuum. While Rip Hunter transported Aquaman, Blue Beetle, Booster Gold, Fire, Guy Gardner, and Ice across time, Martian Manhunter remained on the Watchtower to monitor datastreams for Batman's resurgence. However, after the three-pronged mission was completed, Batman was still missing. Upon tracing the energy signature of one of the assassins to the far future, the JLI discovered Equinox was still alive in the form of a dozen fragments. The team was captured by the Batman Revenge Squad but four Batmen teamed up and saved the day.

Justice League International (consisting of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Booster Gold, Green Arrow, Plastic Man, Kid Flash, and Robin) participated in a baseball game against the Legion of Doom (consisting of Lex Luthor, Joker, Cheetah, Felix Faust, Amazo, and Weather Wizard) they are about to lose to the villians until Batman managed to get a home run, making the Legion of Doom lose horribly.

When an initial battle with Major Force failed to capture the villain, the entire Justice League International was mobilized. While at a power plant, half the team was neutralized. The rest were also neutralized by Major Force at the National Mall. The powerless Captain Atom was the only member left. He took his jet and flew it straight into Major Force. The overload in power gave Captain Atom his powers back and he defeated Force. The JLI was restored to normal. After that mission, the JLI added Captain Marvel and Rocket Red to the roster. Batman then came up with the idea of hosting a mixer and inviting the Justice Society of America. Things did not go well until they noticed a distress call from Batman. They invaded Ra's al Ghul's secret headquarters and saved the planet yet again.
