HistoryEdit

The Justice League established one of their headquarters in space as a space station. The Watchtower established itself on geosyncronous orbit about 22,300 miles above the Equator. Members could teleport to and from the satellite thanks to a cutting edge teleportation station. In order to pass equal responsibility on everyone in the League, the members established a revolving watch duty in which one member was required to monitor Earth from the satellite's command center and dispatch the League on missions. To complement these arrangements, each member was given their own room. The entrance to Hal Jordan's is inscribed with the symbol of the Green Lantern Corps.

In addition to a teleportation pad, meeting area, monitoring station, and medical bay, the Watchtower also includes a Trophy Room and state of the art Training Room. Heroes can train in holographic battle simulations. The sessions can then be adjusted by level of difficulty from 1 to 6, 1 being the easiest and 6 being the most challenging. The technology allows hard light constructs of various cities and locales as well as super villains to appear almost as the real thing. In their early years, Robin, Speedy, and Aqualad were trained here. At some point, Superman challenged Martian Manhunter to a friendly game of arm wrestling in the Training Room.

When a meteroid was set on a collision course with the Watchtower, Batman planned to deal with it personally. Instead of calling in Guy Gardner, he summoned the new Blue Beetle in part to test his potential. Just as Batman and Blue Beetle arrived, the Scarab teleported them to the backside of the Milky Way Galaxy to fight Kanjar Ro. After the space pirate was beaten, they returned at the same moment they left and dispatched the meteroid. The Watchtower was essentially abandoned after the Justice League disbanded. However, Batman quickly assembled a new League to repel an invasion from Apokolips. While the World Threat Alarm was still operational, most of the Watchtower was in dis-repair, including the air conditioning. Martian Manhunter and Skeets were tasked getting the Watchtower fully operational again. Some time later, the JLI hosted a mixer aboard the Watchtower and invited the Justice Society of America.
