I split up some of the groups that had major shifts in approach, although some of the lesser groups, I did not do that. (Sorry Infinity, Legion of Superheroes, etc. fans :csad: )

To me, the DC universe really took off in the 80's, so I haven't included any titles before that although there is a reference to the classic Doom Patrol.

That's alot to choose from.If i had to,it would be between the JLA,JSA and Teen Titans.A Pre-Crisis poll should be done also.
 
JSA late 90's. JSA: Justice Be Done was the trade that opened the floodgate for me to read comic books again.
 
It's going to have to be the JSA, although I'm a big Infinity, Inc./Outsiders fan.
