00:00
what is up Earth's Mightiest subscribers
00:03
it's Ernie Blerd Without Fear welcome
00:06
back to the channel today's video we're
00:10
gonna be talking about something that
00:11
actually meant to drop this back during
00:13
February but me a lot of stuff was going
00:15
on and I figured you know what I'm kind
00:17
of hold on to this will hold it like the
00:18
ace of spades because lo and behold
00:20
you're under quarantine right now and he
00:22
gives me something to talk about during
00:24
this time there are no new comics coming
00:26
out now we are gonna be building a black
00:28
Justice League black and brown Justice
00:31
League if you will and more importantly
00:33
there's some caveats we gotta address
00:35
before we go any further
00:37
caveat number one this team is gonna be
00:39
largely built around the dynamic of the
00:41
original roster of the Justice League
00:44
cartoon series not Justice League
00:47
Unlimited I mean the original Justice
00:49
League cartoon no milestone media
00:53
characters will appear in this list
00:56
because well one right now the rights to
00:59
them is kind of up in the air because
01:00
they just recently as of this past
01:03
December settled that whole court case
01:04
and technically the milestone media
01:07
characters may not be a part of DC
01:08
Comics any longer not to mention they
01:10
also kind of already have their own
01:13
Justice League's if they don't really
01:14
need disease another thing that should
01:16
probably go without saying but all
01:17
characters listed here are going to
01:20
either be black or at the very least
01:22
half black so so I'm sorry Martian
01:25
Manhunter but that would disqualify you
01:27
not only that but even if we were
01:29
counting milestone media characters it
01:31
would also disqualify icon finally this
01:33
is my list so yeah I'm pretty sure
01:36
everyone has their own ideas about how
01:38
wrong I am or about how their list is
01:41
better and that's all well and good you
01:43
can leave that in the comments but don't
01:45
expect to change my mind I've been
01:48
thinking about this for a long time but
01:51
anyways that said we are going to break
01:52
down exactly how we're gonna build our
01:55
all-black Justice League we're gonna
01:57
talk about all that and more right now
01:59
but first watch your damn hands and
02:04
let's hit that intro market-wise grass
02:06
rina one this brother lies gaping chief
02:09
any songs they prefer to lies that's any
02:11
beautiful adrift and her purple eyes you
02:14
can't see me you sleep be wondering have
02:16
our brief smart ever loses that baby
02:18
look before we get started if you want
02:20
to see more awesome comic book videos
02:22
like this ring it only takes two clicks
02:24
to become one of Earth's Mightiest
02:25
subscribers click click I would pick
02:29
none other than bumblebee who
02:31
technically made her first appearance in
02:34
Teen Titans number 45 in 1976 but
02:37
actually made her first appearance as
02:39
bumblebee in Teen Titans number 48 in
02:42
1977 and I feel like bumblebees won't
02:44
scare just once again does not get a lot
02:46
of panel time outside of Teen Titans
02:49
comics if ever her skill set while does
02:51
seem a little limited it actually can be
02:53
quite useful not only can she fly not
02:55
only can she fire off these powerful
02:57
hypersonic blasts as well which I guess
03:00
like her stinger blasts and of course
03:02
she can also shrink
03:03
I feel like bumblebee would make the
03:05
best support characters because she'd
03:06
kind of hang back she could do
03:08
reconnaissance she can kind of fill in
03:09
the gaps in places where other
03:11
characters aren't necessarily the
03:13
strongest for our hitter we are gonna go
03:15
with vixen vixen makes a perfect hitter
03:18
because she can cover so many different
03:20
areas I mean yes she can also make a
03:22
good support character as well so she's
03:23
kind of like a support hitter hybrid if
03:26
the character who first appeared in
03:27
Action Comics number 521 in 1981 she has
03:31
the ability to essentially mimic all of
03:34
the abilities of animals that are on the
03:37
planet that she is on she can tap into
03:39
the red which is basically the spectrum
03:41
to tap into all these different animal
03:43
abilities she can be as strong as a
03:45
gorilla she can be as fast as a cheetah
03:47
she can fly like a hawk she can have the
03:50
senses of a wolf she can do pretty much
03:52
whatever the hell she wants to do she's
03:54
even been able to use this ability to
03:56
tap into the red to actually shape-shift
03:58
into the animals that she uses the
04:00
abilities of she's one of those carrots
04:02
I feel like a doesn't get a lot of panel
04:04
time and B is just viably underused now
04:07
next up we have to look at and that's
04:09
steel see a lot of you thought I was
04:10
gonna say cyborg but cyborg has already
04:12
gotten a lot of play on the Justice
04:13
League and I'm not gonna lie I just
04:15
haven't really been that into him lately
04:18
but
04:18
steal I could get behind because it
04:20
would still give you a Superman esque
04:22
presence on the Justice League but at
04:25
the same time not have Superman in the
04:27
limelight so to speak
04:29
John Harry irons I think could really
04:30
cover a lot of ground that Martian
04:32
Manhunter technically does Alby it he
04:34
would be able to do it telepathically he
04:36
would likely have to do it through tech
04:38
and I think that works just as well now
04:41
let's take a look at who our Green
04:42
Lantern's gonna be none this one's easy
04:44
because who else would I pick to me the
04:46
Green Lantern kind of represents the
04:47
soul of the team I know some people will
04:49
probably say that would be Martian
04:51
Manhunter but to me it's always been you
04:53
the Green Lantern's just because you
04:55
know what regardless of whether you're
04:57
thinking about how Kyle or Jon Stewart
05:00
they usually tend to bring a lot of
05:01
humanity to the Justice League and for
05:04
this I'm picking none other than Jon
05:06
Stewart Jon Stewart is that guy not only
05:08
that he is currently the Green Lantern
05:10
on the team at least up until the end of
05:12
scott Snyder's run and knowing that I
05:14
feel like he is just the better Green
05:16
Lantern in my opinion I know a lot of
05:17
people have their favorites some people
05:19
love how some people love Kyle some
05:22
people love guy but to me it's always
05:24
gonna be Jon Stewart it doesn't matter
05:25
what day you ask me I'm always gonna say
05:28
Jon Stewart that was my Green Lantern
05:30
growing up so that's the one we're gonna
05:32
throw in there now I've already done a
05:33
video on Jon Stewart very recently but
05:36
for those who are not familiar with him
05:37
Jon Stewart made his first appearance in
05:39
Green Lantern number 87 in 1971 and of
05:44
course having the power ring he can
05:46
create whatever he wants he can fly
05:48
he's superhumanly strong when he has the
05:50
ring on and he you just do a lot of
05:52
great things I feel like he would be the
05:55
compensate be the moral compass for the
05:57
team he would be the soul of this Black
06:00
Justice League next up if Green Lantern
06:03
is the soul of the team I feel like
06:06
Wonder Woman is kind of like the team
06:09
mom she's the heart of the Justice
06:12
League and I feel like the character
06:13
that was best embody that would be a
06:15
character I also did a video on very
06:17
recently and that would be Nubia now of
06:21
course Nubia did originally make her
06:23
first appearance in Wonder Woman number
06:25
204 in 1973 however that's not the Nubia
06:29
that I'm talking about not the Nubia who
06:31
was just Wonder Woman's black twins
06:33
sister I'm actually talking about the
06:35
Nubia who was revamped in 1999 and made
06:39
her first appearance in Wonder Woman vol
06:42
2 annual number 8 and that is a Nubia
06:44
who is not so much Wonder Woman's you
06:47
know twin sister her black twin sister
06:49
she is the first Wonder Woman the first
06:52
Amazon to win the tournament of grace
06:55
and Wonder
06:56
thus making her you know kind of you
06:58
back Rhett conned into being the first
07:01
and original Wonder Woman point of the
07:03
matter is I want to use her because one
07:05
Nubian never gets used I mean she has
07:07
been used very recently in Wonder
07:09
Woman's current run that I think is
07:11
still being ridden by G willow Wilson
07:12
but even then she's still not a
07:14
prominent character she's just someone
07:15
who's there in the background and I
07:17
don't want that I want Nubia
07:19
front-and-center I want her to be out
07:22
there doing all the things that Wonder
07:24
Woman can do but doing them with a
07:27
little more grace a little more Wonder
07:29
and a lot more seasoning next up on the
07:32
list is our heavy now this was gonna be
07:35
controversial if for no other reason
07:36
then I'm not picking someone who is
07:38
typically known for their super strength
07:40
I would choose none other than Black
07:42
Lightning now for those who are not
07:44
familiar and I don't know how you are at
07:45
this point but Black Lightning made his
07:47
first appearance in Black Lightning
07:48
number one in 1977 and he could pretty
07:51
much control the electromagnetic
07:53
spectrum he can fire off electricity he
07:56
can fly he can control electricity he
07:58
can create force fields made of
08:00
electricity he can literally turn into
08:02
electricity he can use his electricity
08:04
to heal himself he can do all of that
08:07
but one of the things people don't think
08:08
about is that he does actively use his
08:10
electricity to empower his own super
08:13
strength and durability now would he be
08:15
as strong as Superman probably not
08:17
because Superman is just always booked
08:19
that strong but he'd still be stronger
08:22
than anyone else on the team not to
08:24
mention this guy was trained in
08:26
hand-to-hand combat by Batman himself
08:28
not only that he is in all intents and
08:31
purposes he
08:33
is one of Batman's go-to characters when
08:35
he needs something to get done I've said
08:38
this many times when it comes down to
08:39
Batman Batman when he isn't a pension he
08:41
needs someone to handle some stuff that
08:42
he knows he can't trust anybody else to
08:44
handle he doesn't go to Superman he
08:46
doesn't go to Wonder Woman he doesn't go
08:47
to flash he goes to his homies he
08:50
typically hits up black lightning and
08:52
mr. terrific now that said we're gonna
08:54
talk about who our mastermind is in
08:56
speaking of mr. terrific mr. terrific is
08:59
a third smartest man on the planet and
09:01
some have even said he made that list up
09:03
just to throw people off the scent the
09:04
guy is a natural at everything he ever
09:08
does he is automatically good at
09:11
anything he tries his hand at which
09:13
honestly I kind of feel like is Batman's
09:16
power even though he doesn't technically
09:18
have any and neither does mr. terrific
09:20
but I always just kind of funny that mr.
09:22
terrific was always kind of referred to
09:24
as someone who has a natural aptitude
09:26
for having natural aptitudes and for
09:28
some reason Batman never gets that but
09:30
that said I would pick mr. terrific he
09:32
would be the guy who's calling the shots
09:33
the dude in the chair the dude in the
09:35
field he would be that guy who is coming
09:37
up with plans strategies investigating
09:40
matters at the Justice leaguer looking
09:41
into and basically kind of having
09:44
oversight on everything not only that he
09:46
is a skilled fighter and Batman has gone
09:49
on record to say that yes mr. terrific
09:51
is probably just as smart as he is and
09:53
just as good a fighter as he is but
09:56
anyways those are the characters that I
09:58
picked for my all-black Justice League
10:00
and something I thought was really
10:01
interesting now for those who don't know
10:03
I actually did this in conjunction with
10:06
my guy Devante from alternative
10:08
factual's because he handled the Avenger
10:10
side that I'm handling the Justice
10:11
League side of it but that said you
10:13
should go check out his video about who
10:14
he picked for his Avenger squad and why
10:17
and I think we're gonna be kind of
10:19
trading these back and forth think he's
10:20
gonna do his own version of the Justice
10:22
League and I'm gonna do my own version
10:24
of the Avenger so she go check out his
10:26
