Smallville: Who is in the JSA painting in Absolute Justice?

I don't know if anyone else is curious about this, but I was. Comic book artist Rodolfo Migliari created the fabulous painting we see in the trailer for Absolute Justice. He said on his blog that "the idea for the painting was to do [a] combination between Leonardo Da Vinci's 'Last Supper' and the cover from All Star Comics #3." He also identified all the superheroes he included.

Below, L to R: The Golden Age Star Spangled Kid, Wildcat, The Golden Age Atom, and The Golden Age Sandman.

Below, L to R: The Spectre, The Golden Age Flash, Hawkman, and Hawkgirl. To the right of Hawkgirl, but not featured in any of the close-up shots in the trailer: Doctor Fate and The Golden Age Green Lantern.

Below, L to R: The Golden Age Hourman, The Golden Age Dr. Mid-Nite, The Golden Age Black Canary, and The Golden Age Mr. Terrific.

Just for fun, here are a few more of my favorite caps from the trailer:

And one more, a little bigger, just because he's so damn gorgeous! :)

Credit to The Source for the trailer, and thanks again to SHoE for the download. I made the caps.

I think the painting is a very cool piece, and I love that Smallville commissioned it especially for this 2-hour movie. All the artifacts that Clark finds in the former headquarters of the JSA look awesome. It really looks like the show has given Absolute Justice the care (and the budget) to make it into a true event. Mark your calendars, two weeks from today!

ETA: Rodolfo Migliari was true to his word, and posted a gorgeous scan of the painting once Absolute Justice had aired. Click on the thumbnail for full size:
