I always thought it was cool that Marvel had a team of JLA analogues in their super-group The Squadron Supreme. The fact that their "Superman" - Hyperion - had red hair was an added bonus. As a redhead, I was always looking out for heroes that looked like me, and it was great to have one as a team leader. Marvel had been doing some interesting things with Hyperion and the Squadron, but once J. Michael Straczynski left those titles, they seemed to lose their momentum and stopped appearing before too long. Hopefully they will be back soon, I've enjoyed them in all their various incarnations over the years.
