CBR interviewed Jeff Lemire about his upcoming series Justice League United. This is what he had to say about Stargirl being on the team.

And what about Stargirl, again, a character that I wouldn’t have pegged for this team based purely on her relatively shorter history within the DCU?
I didn’t plan on the bulk of my female characters being teenagers. It just kind of happened but it also created this interesting dynamic between the three of them: Supergirl, Stargirl and the new character that I don’t want to talk about too much yet. They are three very different personalities.
And Stargirl and Supergirl, specifically, are almost complete opposites. Stargirl is this optimistic, positive, almost embodiment of youth across the DC Universe and Supergirl is this alienated, headstrong loner. Putting those two together, you get immediate friction and that’s really interesting for me.
And Stargirl also creates a link to the Justice League of America, the last incarnation. I thought that it was good to have a couple of members cross over. She has a really great relationship with Martian Manhunter, as well, which Matt Kindt fleshed out in “Justice League of America” these past few months.
She wasn’t on my initial roster and then I started reading Matt’s stuff and I really liked what he was going for with Manhunter and Stargirl bonding. I felt there was some really rich ground that I could keep exploring with those two as their relationship keeps getting closer and closer. Manhunter almost becomes like a surrogate father to her in a weird way over the course of my arc, as well. That’s something I found really endearing and was a lot of fun to write.

The rest of the interview is very good. Jeff discusses pretty much all the characters on the team. I’m interested in seeing more of Stargirl and Martian Manhunter together. Is there anything you are looking forward to in this series? Is there any character you would like to see join the ranks of the JLU?

Earth 2 has seen a bunch of additions to its cast over the past couple months. Who would you like to see get the the new Earth 2 treatment next? I have omitted any characters or legacies that have already appeared. An example would be, Green Lantern, has appeared so he, Jade and Obsidian are not on the list. 

What JSA Member/Legacy would you like to get the Earth 2 treatment?

USA Today reports that Jeff Lemire will be writing Justice League of Canada United with Mike McKone on art. The cover is very cool. I love Adam Strange’s New 52 look! Green Arrow looks a little Conor Hawkish for some reason. And Stargirl is looking very blue. Lemire description of the book is very interesting.  

It’s very much a swashbuckling, world-jumping space adventure.

This looks like one of the many changes to the Justice League books that will be around post Forever Evil.
