An acronym for Justice Society of America which, according to the good folks at DC Comics is the Original Superteam. They were originally heroes during WWII but some have died (Atom, Hourman, Sandman, Black Canary, Hawkman, Hawkgirl. Others are still alive and well today in Y2K,(Sentinel, The Flash, Wildcat) while some of the original members have been replaced by their children(Black Canary), godchildren (Atom Smasher, THFKA Nuklon), descendants (Hawkgirl), sidekicks(Sand) and in one situation, a diamond-generation intelligent machine colony from the 853rd century (see DC One Million) programmed with bio-software based on their genetic code (Hourman). Other orignal members have been replaced by new heroes carrying their legacy forward. These include Dr. Mid-Nite, Mr. Terrific and the Star-Spangled Kid.
