Try to keep it interesting and balanced/not overly op.

Shit thread, but I'll post anyway, desu.
Alright basic format of the Justice League is that you have a 1-2 "heavyweights" like Superman and Manhunter. You have 2-3 "middleweights" like Aquaman, Green Lantern, Flash and Wonderwoman. The rest of your team should be "lightweights" like Batman, Mister Terrific and Arrow. Normally you have seven characters, but the number could be larger and you try for 1-2 girls for a romantic subplot shoehorned in.
If we don't give a shit about setting then...
Nanoha (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha)
Robin (One Piece)
Lupin (Lupin III)
Norman Burg (Big O)
The hardest part is picking a group that could all conceivably exist in the same setting and also all be willing to work together to tackle challenges they can't face alone, or just be willing to be a part of a group period.
My first pass at the list would be:
Saitama (OP powerhouse)
Jotaro Kujo (Charismatic specialist)
Endo Kanna (token female, comes with a major villain)
L (brooding detective)
Astro Boy (oldschool rep with a new spin)
Roger Smith (iconic mech representation)
Emiya Shirou (team duct tape, holds them together)
It needs a sarcastic comic relief like Green Arrow/Flash, but that's the closest I got. Anime doesn't feel set up for crossover plots.
This guy in the middle. Might be overly OP tho.
>Goku = Superman, barely a choice really
>Archer = Green Arrow
>Ryuko (KLK) = WW
>Saitama = MM?
>Lupin = Batman
>Genos = Cyborg
>Magic swordsman half golem
Try this out:
Dunan and Briareos (Appleseed)
>stable and dependable power couple
>sexy cool guy who's super powerful
Priss (Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040)
>quiet and aloof power-girl
Desert Punk (Desert Punk)
>rouge trouble-maker who tests the rules
Ikaros (Heaven's Lost Property)
>quiet strategist, ranged fighter
Sage (Ronin Warriors)
Konota (Lucky Star)
Over Justice with 6 Inferno Cops
>PURE FUCKING JUSTICE
I had fun thinking about this last time the thread came up. Wanted a good mix of psychos and moralfags, kids and adults, etc. for internal tension.
Sakazuki Akainu (hardass boss)
Seiryu Ubiquitous (redeemable(?) loose cannon)
Kaname Tousen (always the quiet ones)
Emiya Shirou (straight man, moralfag)
Erza Scarlet (aneki, moralfag)
L Lawliet (brains, moralfag)
Saitama (keeps Akainu and Tousen in check)
Vash The Stampede
What would happen if kotomine
Fate zero caster
True assassin would be in one team? Would shirou try to kill all of them instead of changing his ideals?
I tried to pick functional equivalents to the Justice League's big seven's major archetypes.
Goku fits Superman's power niche naturally, but is also a bit more of a bloodthirsty classic hero, moreso in the dubs.
For Batman's human vigilante, I debated between Duke Togo and Lupin III. Golgo fits Batman's preparation angle better, but Lupin functions better as part of a team.
Wonder Woman is the divine/myth-based hero, and given Japan's predilections for running wild with whatever myths they could get their hands on, there's lots to choose from, but Saber being a sovereign and a swordswoman I think fits really well.
For Martian Manhunter's Psychic niche, I went with Jotaro Kujo. Star Platinum is functionally Superman with some wacky extra abilities like Star Finger and stopping time, much like Martian Manhunter is Superman with bonus powers.
For Aquaman's elemental hero equivalent, I picked Edward Elric. Alchemy's got a shitton of applications, but it's all coordinated through one technique. Plus using alchemy to weaponize his metal hand is like Aquaman manipulating water to make a weapon or a hook/another hand when he's missing a hand in certain stories.
For Green Lantern's cosmic hero, Nanoha Takamachi. Yeah, the space part of her series isn't terribly well-developed, but her powers being focused around Raising Heart fits the niche really well.
As to the Flash's equivalent, there are a lot of speedsters(and single-power oriented heroes in general) in anime. I was considering Joe Shimamura, but since Nanoha's on the team, I figured I bring on the speed-based Fate Testarossa too, since the GLs and Flashes are traditionally close, and Nanoha and Fate moreso, if you know what I mean.
>Guardians of the Galaxy
>having Simon not be the leader
>not just filling that block up with the Gurren lagan crew
Half /a/ and half /co/, but the idea stands.
Saitama for Superman
Hei for Batman
Accel for Flash
Birdy for Wonderwoman
Dandy for Martian
Kiritsugu for Arrrow
Guts for Aquaman (because boat)
