DC is responsible for some of pop culture's best known comic book super heroes, including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman, Green Arrow, and their teammates in the Justice League of America.

Heroes Evolutions

  • Hiro ends another blog entry with "in brightest day, in blackest night", referring to Green Lantern's oath.
  • Hiro signs off, "Great hera," one of Wonder Woman's catchphrases.
  • Excited about meeting other evolved humans, Hiro blogs, "Soon we will be the Justice League of America! Actually it would be Justice League International." However, because Isaac's apartment is in New York City and not in Happy Harbor, Rhode Island (the first location of the Justice League of America), or in Detroit, Michigan (the location of the League's main bunker), he settles on calling the group of evolved humans the Justice Society of America, who kept a headquarters in New York.
  • In a February 10, 2010, message, Hiro signs off, "In brightest day and blackest night". This is very close to Green Lantern's oath.
