JLA And Analogues
2 Greek myths/royal persons: an Amazon princess and an Atlantean king;
2 cosmic forces: speed and light;
2 extraterrestrial exiles: a Martian and a Kryptonian;
1 masked avenger.
At least two other superhero teams are exact one to one analogues:
the Marvel Comics Squadron Supreme;
the Seven in Garth Ennis' The Boys.
The Seven are (allegedly):
a Queen of Otherworld and a helmeted submariner;
Mr Marathon replaced by A-Train and the Lamplighter replaced by Starlight;
a Jovian and an extrasolar alien;
Black Noir (who turns out to be a surprise).
