A bunch of rookie do-gooders couldn’t ask for better mentors than Batman and Wonder Woman.

Gotham City’s resident Dark Knight, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck), even sees a little of himself in fresh-faced newbie Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) — the Flash — when he rounds up new troops to take on the evil Steppenwolf in Justice League (in theaters Thursday night). “Well, they’re always bright and sunny when they start out,” Miller says. “And in Bruce’s mind, he’s like, ‘Hey, kid, talk to me after 25 years of fighting maniacs and looking into their cold dead eyes and then come cracking your jokes.’ ”

The Flash, oceanic bad boy Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and the high-tech half-android Cyborg (Ray Fisher) all have splashy introductions in director Zack Snyder’s supergroup film. Here’s what you need to know about the three heroes who get a crash course in justice:

Cyborg

Gotham City University star quarterback Victor Stone became Cyborg thanks to his father’s work following a horrendous accident. However, at the same time his is a Frankenstein story where Victor not only has to learn how to live again but also figure out his weaponized android body. “It was really fun just being able to put in some of the work on the physical side of things: just mapping out how he moves, so when he’s unable to control his cannon in one of the scenes, figuring out what that looks like so it’s not just me up there pop-locking,” says Fisher.

Cyborg’s powers evolve over the course of the film and the actor admits there’s more to be done. So, does that mean solo movie? “I’m down,” Fisher says, adding he’s interested in a story that asks "relevant questions of the audience as far as where we are with technology and how much is too much and how soon is too soon with respect to where we advance.”

The Flash

Miller’s up-and-coming hero is another college kid with a heavy heart. Barry’s determined to prove his father’s innocence after being convicted for his mom’s murder — though Batman is far more interested in the fact Barry’s the fastest man alive, the result of being struck by lightning. 

But the Flash is a little freaked out by the whole fighting-bad-guys thing. “There’s nothing interesting about a perfect superhero,” Miller says. “Stories about greatness are best rooted in the mundane, in the weaknesses that dwell beneath that greatness.”

Aquaman

As for Arthur Curry, well, he just doesn’t like anybody: The son of a man and an Atlantean queen, Momoa’s main man rejects the surface world and the undersea one. It’s only until he sees the threat facing the world of his mother when he takes action. “He is definitely this reluctant hero,” Momoa says. “He lives on the fringes of society and he’s a loner.”

There’s not much time for his backstory in Justice League, but Momoa promises more will be revealed in Aquaman (Dec. 21, 2018), directed by James Wan. “A lot of people may question why he’s like this – obviously you’re going to find out soon enough. It’s an interesting role to play because this guy doesn’t know what to do with his powers. And it takes these people believing in him and he takes a chance on them, and eventually you’re going to see a man become king.”
