Hall of Justice

The front of the Hall of Justice.

The Hall of Justice was the publicly known headquarters of the Justice League located in Washington, D.C.. However, the Hall was actually a tourist front with the League's real headquarters orbiting in outer space. The Hall was destroyed in an explosion caused by L-Ron on April 1, 2016.

History

Early history

When the Justice League originally formed, they set up their headquarters inside Mount Justice. Unfortunately, the Joker located their base and attacked.[1] As a result, the League was forced to relocate.[2] In order to create a better public image, the League built the Hall of Justice in Washington, D.C., which would act as faux headquarters and public front. In truth, the League designed the orbiting Watchtower as their real base which could be accessed through Zeta-Tubes.[3]

The building was partially open to the public, and Catherine Cobert toured groups, showing them the trophy room and the main hall.[4]

The Big Leagues

The young heroes arrive at the Hall.

Aqualad, Robin, Speedy and Kid Flash were brought to the Hall of Justice by Aquaman, Batman, Green Arrow and Flash as the first step of their induction into the Justice League. They were given a tour of the facility, concluding in the library. There the League intended to leave their sidekicks while they discussed a series of possibly related crimes that all had occurred in one day. However, before they could leave, Speedy exploded with anger over the limited access that he and the others had been given. Speedy revealed to the shock of Robin, Aqualad and Kid Flash the truth about the Hall of Justice being a public front, having already been informed about the Watchtower by Green Arrow.

As a result, Speedy quit as Green Arrow's sidekick. After his departure, the League was alerted to two disasters occurring simultaneously. One was a fire at Project Cadmus while the other was a mystical villain known as Wotan. The League rushed off to deal with the Wotan threat, and ordered their sidekicks to remain behind. However, Robin proceeded to hack the Hall of Justice's computer system and he along with Kid Flash and Aqualad went to investigate the Cadmus fire.[3]

Hall of Justice in ruins

The Hall of Justice in ruins.

Captain Marvel, Zatanna and Bumblebee joined Superboy, Miss Martian and Mal Duncan at the Hall, as the latter three were gathering their belongings they salvaged from Mount Justice. L-Ron, the majordomo of Despero, arrived and generated a force field around the hall, so his master could fight the heroes. The fight lasted several hours, during which army troops lead by Wade Eiling surrounded the building.

Eventually, the heroes inside defeated Despero. This did not sit well with L-Ron, who accused them of cheating, and decided to activate a bomb in his casing. The explosion brought down the entire hall. Meanwhile, the ambassador arrived and opened the barrier with a special device.[9]
