I would love to see Xanadu become a central kind of leadership role for the team. Like a guiding mother who is kind of a mentor to Zatanna.
Also, Etrigan is a must.
Merlin would be cool as like some sort of resurrection thing.

I think it would be cool to have a JLD that, instead of being magicians (or magic themed), was spy themed. Whenever I hear “Justice League Dark” I have to mentally remind myself they aren’t a black-ops group consisting of:

Black Bat: What black-ops team doesn’t need a ninja with a teddy-bear’s personality?

Martian Manhunter: A shape-shifting, mind-reading, detective? I’ll put one of those on my team!

Oracle: Someone has to run comms and why not pick the best?!

Plastic Man: That guy seems to know an awful lot about how the underworld works… and he’s funny!

Zee (Zanna (Zatanna)): If the team comes across any magic villains that thought “magic” where some thought “black-ops” they will need the earth’s best magician who doesn’t lock themselves in a tower they never leave!

The Question: A street level detective with a eye for the big picture, he’ll make sure the team knows the street and maybe solve the mystery behind the sinister aglets!

For starters, John Constantine is a must. Swamp Thing and Zatanna are staples too. Then we can get weird… I’d elevate Raven to the team- if Cyborg can be in the Justice League, why can’t she? Then throw in Mera with her deep sea magic, and Vixen with her mystical Tantu Totem.

And sure, throw The Question in there for good measure. No powers, but you need a guy who can get nuts.

I would keep Zatanna and Constantine. Then add the Spectre, Dr. Fate, and Ragman.

Oh, and Detective Chimp…because, come on, it’s Detective Chimp.

Ooh, Shazam would be a good, and a more lighthearted edition. It would be fun to see him alongside someone like Deadman.

Zatanna
John Constantine
Deadman

These three are basically the trinity for the JLD the same way that Superman, Batman & Wonder Woman are the trinity of the Justice League, it just doesn’t feel right without them.

Swamp Thing I think is also a good one, someone who would have some knowledge of the Green and by osmosis all the other primal forces of the Earth.

Shazam would make for an interesting addition – with his deep connection to magic now, I think it makes sense that he would have to have some say in the affairs of it, plus it would be interesting to see this young, more idealistic kid deal with the often horrific problems that the JLD is called to solve.

Raven would be really good, she could school even Constantine in some manners of demonology. Plus, I think it’s just high time for her to be able to graduate from a Teen Titan to a member of the Justice League.

I would pick Shazam , Constantine, Zantana, Estrin the demon( think I totally misspelled his name) Hawkman, and Raven and last but not least yes a tag team Blue Beetle and Booster Gold. That’s my Justice League Dark team

I would keep John Constantine and Zatanna on the team. Thinking outside of the box I would add Mr. Mxyztplk, Raven, Pariah, and Huntress.

I like the addition of Wonder Woman on Tynions run. So my team would be: Wonder Woman, Zatanna, Constantine, Detective Chimp, Swamp Thing, Etrigan, Ragman, Raven and Doctor Fate. The only complaint I have about team up books like the Justice League, JLD and even marvel teams like the Avengers is I like to see the line up switch between story arcs. Like it doesnt have to be the whole team but take out some characters and bring in others for an arc or two.

I would probably have the three mains of Constantine Zatanna and Swamp Thing
Others will be Etrigan. He just awesome plus who does enjoy his rhymes. Either Martian Manhunter or Miss Martian. I feel the shapeshifting space ways would be really interesting for the JLD team.

rubs chin in thought

Well…

  • Zatanna: The Mistress of Magic is an obvious must, and team leader.

  • John Constantine: Another herculean magic user on a supernatural themed League never hurts. Plus, he and Zee can provide witty repartee that makes everyone else say “Bippity boppity boo yourselves off to a Motel 6 already, we’ve got work to do over here”.

  • Marshmallow Pete: I figure Pete needs to get out of Metropolis for a while, so why not see the sights of magic…and a chainsmoking badass.

Plus, when the fit hits the shan, you just can’t beat having a guy on your team who can transform into a humanoid marshmallow. “Let’s get mushy…and magical!” would be Pete’s new battle cry.

  • Etrigan: He’s taking a break from the constant rhyming, but his desire to rejoin the team as a muscular and magical heavyweight is of perfect timing.

  • Amethyst: Let’s say things have quieted down in Young Justice and she wants a side gig. Why not?

  • The Monolith: Because. Anyone who’s read The Monolith gets it.

  • Hiro Okamura Toyman: Comic relief and the team’s resident tech-whiz.

  • Naomi McDuffie: She’s had a decent taste of the science fiction side of things, now she wants to embark on magical adventures.

That’s the primary team, but Mr. Mxyzptlk may show up once in a while too. Villain? Ally? Neutral observer? Tune in, same JLD-time, same JLD-channel to find out.

I think he would bring a certain level of chaos as you never know what is up his sleeve.

Can’t think of a single wildstorm character to shoehorn here, but I can get out of the box.

Frankenstein
Princess amethyst
Hawkman
Hawkgirl
Tim Hunter
John Constantine
Zantanna

@Wildstorm-Jeff Elijah Snow could be a fun Wildstorm shoe-in, especially if he developed a fondness for Zee.

Void would also be a fun addition, as she’d be the first cybernetic member of a JLD roster.

Matrix - Representative of Heaven
Buzz - Representative of Hell
Enchantress - Representative of the Arcane world
Deadman - Representative of the Dead
Cameron Chase - Representative of the mortal world

Team is led from afar by a depowered Spectre who needs them to carry the torch of vengeance against horrid wrongdoings until the mystery of his lost powers is solved.
