Justice League superhero pairs in DC logo box, 1990-92

Over two series and two-and-a-half years, on certain Justice League covers, DC Comics placed a pair of superheroes posing playfully at top left (below the logo). In all, thirteen heroes were featured.

  • Three of those characters (Flash, Elongated Man, Power Girl) made repeat appearances with a different partner. 
  • Two (Elongated Man, Power Girl) made repeat appearances in a different (arguably worse) costume.
  • Two pairs appeared only once: Flash/Power Girl, Elongated Man/Power Girl. (Dont feel bad, Power Girl; some characters did not appear at all.)
  • Three pairs were established buddies (Beetle/Booster, Fire/Ice, Flash/Green Lantern); the rest were more unlikely combos.

The first two pairs appeared on covers of Justice League America, the rest Justice League Europe.

Here is a collage gallery of each pairs first appearance:
