In Justice League # 59, Green Arrow makes a comment that foreshadows a tragedy that was first featured in Future State: Justice League # 1.
Warning! Spoilers ahead for League of Justice # 59
A seemingly harmless comment made by Green Arrow will set in motion the destruction of League of Justice later seen in the Future state comics event. Of course, the future is not set in stone, but the way things look now, Green Arrow keeps the Justice League on the same destructive path it will be on in the future, so much so that it will then force the team. of superheroes to completely change the way your organization works.
After a rather challenging skirmish against an unknown assailant is interrupted, the Justice League gathers at their headquarters, where Green Arrow expresses concern that he and his Justice League colleagues have been fighting together for so long. that now they are always the same. page. And that’s not good. They work too well together. He wants more dissent and alteration of the status quo. Different opinions, he believes, could push them to achieve even more good things than they are now by broadening their horizons. However, achieving this would require them to accept more members into their organization.

While this sounds good in theory, knowing what happens in Future state puts a brake on things just a little for the reader. According to future Superman Jonathan Kent, the Justice League had accepted too many members, one of whom actually stole information about the Justice League and used it against them in an act of treason. The repercussions of that betrayal were so great that the original team members thought it best to keep their organization smaller and tighter to prevent such an incident from happening again. An additional provision greatly restricted future iterations even further by limiting the number of times the Justice League could meet, absolutely prohibiting interactions between its members unless absolutely mission-relevant.
Interestingly, Superman never shares the name of the hero who betrayed the Justice League. Who could it be? As of now, the only person of interest is Black Adam because oddly enough, not only does he act like a decent human being, but he even fights alongside the Justice League in League of Justice # 59, written by Brian Michael Bendis and Ram V. with art by Xermanico and David Marquez.
Black Adam has always been a bad guy, especially through his exploits against Shazam, so it wouldn’t be too hard to imagine him hurting the Justice League. But why would its members accept Black Adam in the first place? The fact that I’m acting decently could lead Green Arrow and Superman to bring him on board, as their different views would undoubtedly bring the dissent and disruption that Green Arrow feels his team so desperately needs. So the question remains: Why does Black Adam act like a hero? And if he has changed his mind, is it possible that he will later revert to his old ways and betray the League of Justice?
