Adam Strange is an example of these honorary JLA members. He was considered a part of the team as of JLA: Secret Files #1. He's often worked with various team members separately over the years to help solve crimes or avert tragedies. I'd think with his fighting ability and technology there'd be a spot for him as a full-time JLA member, if only he were on Earth all the time. What I love about this character is that he's the epitome of the old guard Sci-Fi action hero! With the Jet Pack, Blaster pistol and all. He would travel or be transported, from Earth to the planet Rann where his family lived on a regular basis.
Of the various story arcs that feature Adam Strange, my favorite were the fairly recent Rann/ Thanagar War that also featured Hawkman and Hawkgirl. These Earthly superheroes travel to their planets to find them at war with each other. It's a very cool, big space battle in a lot of ways. Also there was an
Adam Strange mini series called Planet Heist, drawn by Pascal Ferry that I really enjoyed. Strange is easily in my top 5 DC superheroes, so I was glad to have a chance to draw him finally this year.
