DC Comics 101: What's the Difference Between the Justice Society and the Justice League?

You’d be hard pressed to find anyone with even a passing knowledge of DC Comics who doesn’t feel at least a little familiar with the Justice League of America. They are, after all, one of the most iconic and widely recognized super hero teams of all time. Their similarly named ancestor, the Justice Society of America, however, does not share the same notoriety.

In fact, there’s a decent chance this season of #DCTV might be the first time that some of you have heard of the JSA at all.

Don’t worry. If that’s the case, you are far from alone.

Starting Young with Batman

Fandom starts young for many people, but sometimes kids catch me off guard. I know they are exposed to super heroes through comics and cartoons at an early age, but because I didn't start finding my way to the world of super heroes and villains until I was an adult, I occasionally forget that you’re never too young to be a Batman fan. With all the different mediums of storytelling at their fingertips, kids can become experts before they hit double digits. That's the case with 10-year-old Mason Fujikawa.
