I like the idea he's going for, but the concept is a bit lost to me.
The only one I outright hate is Victor. Probably because I've never liked Cyborg, and felt he has no place on the Justice League. Mostly because the character has nothing to really stand for.
All the original Magnificent Seven stand for something. They all mean something.
The Titans however, a point to them was that they were just teens, and they weren't Icons. They were kids, putting on costumes and helping out, but no longer following in the footsteps of the bigger heroes. But that's for another time.

I like that Superman is more to his roots, but he's also left some too. Superman is a model for the working man, yes, but he's also the Strongman at the circus. This design takes the social commentary and only that, leaving out the heroics. He seems more of a vehicle, than he does a Hero.

Wonder Woman design here is admirable, but like any design with Wonder Woman, it's hard to say what to emphasize. Wonder Woman has been a character who's been lost for far too long. This, I don't think can make her right, since it still emphasizes one thing over another, which is far too common with her. She's hardly had any characterization, but she has promise in what was penned years ago. I'm one to say, if a Hero has been around for 50 years, don't tug on their cape too much, and that's an issue here, but it's also an issue of, yes, Wonder Woman is a woman, so play to that, not just the Greek imagery.

Martian Man Hunter isn't worse off than Wonder Woman, but often treated this way. It's mostly because he was made into a second rate Superman, and today, his relevance is so little, and so unknown, that people forget, before he was a second rate Slam Bradley before a second rate Superman. If I say there's one thing to play up for Martian Man Hunter, it's the Detective angle, which is touched upon, but not as strongly as possible. When I think of Martain Man Hunter, I think DC New Frontier. This one, seems to be too despondent. Apathy doesn't lend well with Superheroes.

Green Lantern is interesting. I think it's the simplest design there, and it's effective. The removal of the ring makes sense, though the iconography of the Ring means it should be here to stay. He also seems to forgo an important point of the Green Lantern. They're ringslingers, but they call themselves Lanterns, because they're beacons.

The Flash also loses a lot of Character. I don't mind a new person taking the role of the The Flash, but he said these are supposed to take to the core of who the characters are, which is entirely lost here. He seems too lost in wanting a cure, whereas a Flash, should love what he does, and what he can do. I think a Green Lantern is more the one to take a job seriously, or want to get out, whereas a Flash, should enjoy what they do a lot more than they should. Jay, Barry, Wally, and Bart all have one thing in common, They love what they do. Before they were the Flash, they were all helping people, and after they only used what they had to help more. They're kind folk, who should put others above everything else. That's to the core of the character.

Power Girl is the only one I have no opinion on, since she's entirely different. I don't mind it either. I think Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti are two people who understood what Power Girl needed to be, and did it right, but I'm not 100% convinced of the character from them, nor by Diaz's design here, and I don't know what the character needs. She doesn't seem like she's a statement against meaning something, but nor does she mean something either. I suppose that's a charm to the character, but my indifference to Power Girl only shows why I shouldn't judge her more than I already do.

All and all, it's admirable, but the characters have lost things they need. He does talk of Balancing acts a bit, but falls short with many of them.
And I'm certain if I made my designs for a reboot of most the characters, I'd fall short on some things too to someone else's eyes.
