The Justice League will finally see justice.

Snyder’s cut Justice League — is lame when there’s a real justice league you can join

WE ARE RECRUITING NOW

Seeking Justice

As I scan the morning “news” headlines on The NY Times, The Guardian and The Santa Fe New Mexican, I came across what is clearly a priority in this era of colliding crises. It’s not updates on a COVID-19 vaccine, support for the newly jobless or development of a medicare-for-all plan. It’s the earth-shattering news about Justice League.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League, lovingly referred to by fans as the “Snyder Cut”, in an upcoming director’s cut of the 2017 American superhero film Justice League. We will finally see what the original director (who dropped out for personal reasons and was replaced by Avengers film director Josh Whedon) originally wanted. The truth—Snyder’s truth—must be revealed to a horde of desperate fans. In a pandemic. And economic free fall.

Yes, Snyder’s Justice League — with Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman, the Flash, Cyborg and Aquaman (neutered on dry land but looking super buff) — will once again smash through endless plot holes to save the world from the catastrophic threat of the CGI villain Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons. Only this time, Superman’s cape is black. Epic!

Snyder announced that his cut would be released as Zack Snyder’s Justice League on HBO Max in mid-2021 (assuming humans, electricity and HBO still exist, of course).

2021 is an eternity away. While Zack is busy in the editing booth, you might be interested to learn that another Justice League is forming. No, it’s not a sequel or reboot or prequel.

Survive Alive Squad

The Justice League-like team, called the Survive Alive Squad, are real people with superhuman abilities, joining together to ensure that we survive amid colliding crises on planet earth. Their mission: ensure that the five vital services for survival exist in each city and town.

A Near Impossible Mission

The ten superheroes, who all have regular day jobs just like you, are committed to creating a world where everyone can soar, free from crises. Survive Alive Squad and Thrive Masters empower our youth, parents, grandparents, teachers, social workers, healthcare providers and all those committed to a future where each child’s safety and success is society’s highest priority. The superheroes won’t rest until the ten vital services for surviving and thriving are accessible to 100% of residents in each county, city and town. (This is something Superman never even attempted.)

In a Multiverse, Not a Multiplex, Near You

And it’s not just one Justice League-like team forming to save the world. Through the power of interdimensional travel to parallel worlds (see: Spiderman into the Spider-verse), there are many Survive Alive Squad and Thrive Master teams forming as you read this. There is a ten superhero team for each of the nation’s 3000+ counties—protecting, empowering and serving all the cities and communities within county borders. And fighting off the hideous villains who are far from CGI.

An Almost Unbeatable Foe

There is much work to be done as the two entities for good battle their fiercest foe, the giant mutant three-headed hydras of apathy, envy and fear. Compared to the devious and powerful hydras, the Parademons are pussycats.

Coming Soon vs. Recruiting now.

As you wait for the mind-blowing “Snyder cut” to stream in (and never get those four hours back), you can join forces with a real Justice League-like force to save your corner of the universe from the colliding crises and powermad hydras. Unmissable!

*The future is what we make it. Join the evolution.
