Justice Leagues was a six-issue crossover event published by DC Comics in 2001. In the mini-series, alien invaders used Hector Hammond, a telepathic supervillain, to make the world forget that the Justice League of America had ever existed, only to find the individual members of the Justice League instinctively creating new crime-fighting organizations beginning with the "Justice League of A" to fill the void. Each issue was supposedly the first of a new series featuring one of the alternate teams, although they were really one-offs except the last, which featured the recreated Justice League of America.

Featured JLAs were the "Justice League of Aliens", led by Superman and the Martian Manhunter; the "Justice League of Amazons", led by Wonder Woman; the "Justice League of Arkham", led by Batman; and the "Justice League of Atlantis", led by Aquaman. Cameo appearances were made by the "Justice League of Adventure", led by the Flash (Wally West); the "Justice League of Air", led by Green Lantern (Kyle Rayner); the "Justice League of Anarchy", led by Plastic Man and Harley Quinn; and the "Justice League of Apostles", led by the angel Zauriel.
