The Justice Society of America is a team of comic book superheroes published by DC Comics.

JSA members are listed here only once—in order of their first joining the team. Retconned members are listed only where they historically took part in the stories. Only official members are listed. No unofficial, reserves or honorary members.

Note: In the wake of DC Comics' Flashpoint event, the history of the JSA has been rebooted. Many of the characters have been reintroduced with new histories while others have yet to reappear. Characters' last known status is listed below. An alternate version of the team appears in the series Earth-2.
