With the release of Man of Steel next week, it's admittedly difficult to not think ahead to the much rumored and much maligned Justice League of America movie. If you don't know what that is, it's basically The Avengers only with DC characters (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, etc.). And it's crazy that we live in a world where The Avengers are more popular than Justice League, because until recently that was never the case (think of all of the iterations of Super Friends there have been, which is a watered down version of Justice League). With Man of Steel, the framework is certainly being set, but, at least if we're looking at Marvel's blueprint, something seems missing. And what's missing has everything to do with The Flash.
