When J.M. DeMatteis and Keith Giffen took over the reins of Justice League, they gave us a team unlike any league we had seen before. Humor was served in equal doses with superhero action, and it was a refreshing change from the grim and gritty trend that had been dominating the comics scene at the time. One little character bit that they added which I really liked was The Martian Manhunter's love of "Choco" cookies. It was a fun way to inject some humor and personality into a hero that is known to be quiet and stoic. Not everyone could be the wise crackers that Blue Beetle and Mister Miracle were, after all.
