Animator Bruce Timm, having successfully adapted both Batman and Superman
into animated television programs in the 1990s, took on the challenge of faithfully
adapting the Justice League comic book. Ignoring the sidekicks, pets and other
extraneous elements of the earlier Super Friends show, the line-up of this new JLA
adaptation was created with two things in mind: to pay tribute to the original line-up
of the JLA, while also reflecting racial and cultural diversity. Significantly, the
well-known (but much-depreciated) superhero Aquaman was left out of the lineup
(although he would be used on the show) in favor of a second female on the team -
Hawkgirl - and the African-American Green Lantern John Stewart, who has worked
with the League in the comics before, was used rather than one of the better-known
modern-era Green Lanterns Hal Jordan, Guy Gardner or Kyle Rayner, even though
Rayner had appeared as Green Lantern in the Superman animated series. (In the
second season, Rayner is described as a Lantern in training under Stewart's old
mentor, explaining his absence. Both Rayner and Jordan make brief appearances in
JLU.) Gardner was never seen in either series.

The show met with significant success, partially due to loyal fans already familiar
with these incarnations of the characters, and partially from a new generation of
viewers. The two-part nature of most episodes led Cartoon Network to choose to air
the episodes back-to-back.

According to audio commentary on the DVD release of Season 2, the second
season finale "Starcrossed" was expected to be the final episode of the series.
However, in February 2004, Cartoon Network announced a follow-up series, Justice
League Unlimited, which premiered on July 31, 2004. Justice League Unlimited
features a greatly expanded roster of heroes, usually with only a few appearing in
any given episode, although there are a few featuring just about the entire roster
fighting against one giant enemy.
