Countdown to Justice League – DC: The New Frontier

Ricky Church continues his countdown to Justice League with Darwyn Cooke’s DC: The New Frontier…

Over the years there has been a lot of stories that has told how the Justice League first became a team. I already went over Justice League: Origin in my countdown as a modern-day story for the team’s first adventure. This story, however, flashes back to the Silver Age of heroes in the 50s and 60s in a unique and compelling tale by the late and great Darwyn Cooke in DC: The New Frontier.

Taking place in a time period of great division in America, Cooke took inspiration from Alan Moore’s Watchmen where heroes are banned by government when the Red Scare and McCarthyism swept the nation. Only government sanctioned heroes, like Superman and Wonder Woman, operate while Batman does so illegally and many of the other heroes have retired or gone into hiding.

Ricky Church continues his countdown to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with DC: The New Frontier…

With a week to go until Batman v Superman is released in theatres, anticipation has been steadily building to see DC’s most famous heroes – Wonder Woman included – on the big screen. There’s a bit more to the Countdown to the film and the latest entry looks at Darwyn Cooke’s DC: The New Frontier, examining the Trinity’s partnership in the 1950s during a time when social liberties and freedoms were threatened in America due to McCarthyism and the Red Scare.

In this timeline, vigilantism became outlawed because people could not trust those who wore a mask and refused to testify to Senator Joe McCarthy’s House Un-American Activities Committee. As a result, the Justice Society of America disbanded and few heroes operated during this time at all. Superman and Wonder
