Children with vivid imaginations often fantasize about achieving extraordinary and fantastic milestones, like being sorted into a Hogwarts house or being drafted into the Justice League - unsurprisingly, those fantasies don’t always fade away when children grow up. As such, the notion of seeing Justice League members sorted into Hogwarts houses is enough to set the mind of any Harry Potter or DC fan running wild. Even though an education in witchcraft and wizardry might seem a bit redundant to characters like Green Lantern or Wonder Woman, that doesn’t mean the Sorting Hat wouldn't have some ideas about who should go where.

The four houses of Hogwarts - Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin - aren’t just the wizarding equivalent of fraternities and sororities; they’re lifelong affiliations that are based on one’s inner self and truest qualities. Every fan of the Harry Potter franchise has an opinion about which house is best, but the traits that define the houses are clear and distinct, making sorting easy, even for fictional characters.

    Ravenclaws are often characterized as being so obsessed with knowledge and intelligence that they lose touch with their humanity, so it makes sense that a non-human character would end up in the house.

    Martian Manhunter values logic and understanding above all, something that the Ravenclaw house definitely appreciates. J’onn J’onzz possesses a genius-level intellect and photographic memory, so he would easily obtain the high grades that Ravenclaw expects, and then some. Not to mention he'd probably be decent at Quidditch.

    Placing Kara Zor-El in the same house as her more famous Kryptonian cousin is tempting, but Supergirl actually belongs in Hufflepuff. The fact that she’s so willing to stay in Superman’s shadow, despite her considerable abilities, demonstrates the Hufflepuff values of dedication, patience, and loyalty.

    If anyone is more honest and kind than Superman, it’s Supergirl, and her treatment of others would make any Hufflepuff proud. The fact that it took Kara so long to become a prominent character proves she’s grounded and unlikely to put herself in the spotlight, both of which are Hufflepuff traits.

    Several have donned the Blue Beetle mantle in DC history, but the most well-known also happens to be the best fit for Ravenclaw. Ted Kord is a veritable genius, and although he has no actual superpowers, he has created enough technology to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the rest of the Justice League.

    Kord has mastered all manners of science, including chemistry, physics, and engineering, which is in keeping with the lofty academic standards of Ravenclaw. His sense of humor might not be textbook Ravenclaw, but perhaps he’d add some much-needed levity to the sometimes dreary group.

    Members of Gryffindor are meant to be extraordinarily chivalrous, and Superman is often referred to as “the big blue Boy Scout” - clearly, the two are practically made for one another. Few fictional characters are more heroic than Superman, so who better to represent the same house as Albus Dumbledore, Neville Longbottom, and Harry Potter himself?

    Gryffindors are meant to exemplify bravery, and Superman invariably and regularly puts his life on the line to protect his adopted planet.
