Meet the Injustice League...and the JLA's new Writer!

Wow, that was fast. I was all set to speculate on this image for the cover of JLA #13, when news breaks from Heroes Con that this is the Injustice League, and that Again With the Comics favorite Dwayne McDuffie is set to be the title's next writer. This is fantastic news, as McDuffie was also one of the head writers for the animated Justice League and JL Unlimited. It looks like he's going to tweak the team lineup and gather a new group of sociopaths to occupy the JLA. Let's see who we have here:

Front row, Left to Right (sort of-criminals are a disorganized and uncooperative lot.):
Granny Goodness
Doctor Sivana
Circe (above Sivana and Granny)
Fatality
Bolt
Amazo
Poison Ivy
Grodd
Lex Luthor
Joker
Cheetah
Cheshire
Doctor Light
Shadow Thief
Move up a bit, head back towards the right, and we've got:
Zoom
Icicle
Parasite
Despero
Scarecrow
Felix Faust
Two-Face
Lionmane
Captain Cold
Toyman
Mammoth
(Unknown above Mammoth...Snapper?!?)
Solomon Grundy
Deathstroke
Mongul
Merlyn
Sinestro
Validus
Black Manta
Move up and head back left, we see those lurking furthest back are:
Chemo
Killer Frost
Again With the Black Adam
Giganta
On her shoulder, Doctor Psycho
Bizarro
Major Force
Effigy

That's forty-one murderous maniacs. These are my best guesses, but I'm sure you won't hesitate to correct me if I'm wrong, will you dear readers? Can you identify the mystery characters? Got a "That's Thumpina of Apokalips, not Circe, you dolt!" all bottled up inside? Wanna correct my spelling of Apokolips? Take it to the comments, folks!

I'd hope there would be a good explination for Black Adam, 1. having his powers back after just giving them away to Mary and 2. being back on a team that tried to kill him during the whole IC thing...

Also Bolt is dead. Ants ate 'em, then blew him up. He was freaking skeletonized. Dead. Dead. Dead.

Oh and lastly, I hate about 60% of those haircuts. Especially Grodd. And Grundy looks like he's possesing Bobo Benetti...

Is the (unknown) between Mongul and Sinestro Ocean Master?

Taking a look at a bigger version, I believe it might be Merlyn...

Yeah, I'm completely Black-Adamed out at this point. I just magnified the image, and Mr Unknown has a quiver and black Tunic. So Merlyn it is.
