      I've been wondering the same thing and was under the impression that the "other" Justice League (The Producers) were the "real" J.U.S.T.I.C.E league (The Crew) who the Away Team are/were a part of. Something aint right man, & I totally agree w/Mr. Flamboyant's comment about Talib being the "new" Samuel L. Jackson of hip hop (lol). Talib doesn't seem to be comfortable in his "Conscious rapper" skin anymore, he's been all over the place lately.
