The Justice League is an organization comprised of the world's most powerful superheroes, dedicated to fighting crime and injustice, and protecting the world itself. They work together as a team, acting as planet Earth's first line of defense against both local and extraterrestrial threats.
The original Justice League was founded by Batman and Wonder Woman after the heroic death of Superman (at Doomsday's hands), with the intention of protecting Earth from the mysterious powerful alien threat that Lex Luthor had warned Batman of (Darkseid, and his army of Parademons), since Earth was otherwise left vulnerable after its greatest hero's death.
Eventually the mystical Justice League Dark would take inspiration for their team's name from the original League.
After Superman's death at the hands of Doomsday, Batman and Wonder Woman set out to find various metahumans from the LexCorp files in hopes to combat Steppenwolf and his army. When asked by Prince about his reasons, Wayne merely commented, "Just a feeling," (In reality, he was heeding the words of the time traveler in his "dream", as well as Lex Luthor's cryptic warning).
Meeting with Amanda WallerEdit
After the events in Midway City were succesfully foiled by the Suicide Squad, Amanda Waller met up with Wayne and requested that he protect her from rumors regarding the Midway City attack, which Wayne complied to in exchange for the metahuman files Waller was rumored to have collected, with the files of the Aquaman and Flash among them. He then told her to shut down the Task Force X program, stating that "my friends and I" would handle any future problems, before using the files to track down the metahumans he needed.
Assembling the LeagueEdit
Locating the FlashEditBarry Allen to his home in Central City, were he breaks into and waits in Allen's "second favorite chair" until he gets home. He introduces himself to a dismayed and confused Allen (whom Wayne recognizes as the past version of the scarlet time-traveler that appeared in his "dream"), promptly handing him a printout of the security camera tape he found on the LexCorp files. Allen instantly recognizes himself in the photo and tries, unsuccessfully, to dismiss the person as someone who merely looks like him, Jewish and someone who drinks milk, claiming that he himself does not do so. Wayne ignores Barry's failed attempts at deflecting, surveying his apartment, where he noticed the speedster's scarlet suit, and informed Allen that he knows he latter has abilities, but just needs to know what they are.
As Allen nervously rambles about his personal skills, including competitive ice dancing, Wayne suddenly hurls a batarang at him as hard as possible, but Allen uses his speed to dodge and catch it. Recognizing it, an awed Allen deduces that Wayne is Batman. Wayne, in turn, responds by stating that Barry is fast, to which the latter calls an oversimplification. Wayne then begins to tells Barry about the "team" he is putting together, but before he finishes, Barry accepts, stating his answer for "needing friends". Wayne is momentarily confused, but he accepts his decision. Allen, who up until this point has been admiring the batarang, then asks Wayne if he can keep it.

- Unlike most versions of the League in other media, this team's original roster is only made up of six members. Normally there would be a seventh member when the group was founded, usually Green Lantern.
- Doubling the irony, Cyborg (as of the New-52 comics) is supposed to be the seventh member of the League.
- Almost every member of the League has lost both their parents. Superman, Wonder Woman, and Cyborg are the exception, with at least 1 parent left. The Flash, however lost only his mother, but his father has been imprisoned since his Barry's childhood. Superman is also an odd exception, as he's lost both his biological parents, as well as his adoptive father.
- This represents an ongoing trope with DC Comics, in that their character roster is largely comprised of orphaned heroes.
