As a method of quick and personal communication between members of the Justice League, the communication link was invented most likely by Batman. Referred to as the comm link informally, it appears as a wireless ear implant and is invisible to the naked eye. It emits a low frequency ping during transmission and is answered by a slight tap with the finger. As with the expansion of the League, new members were also given links. However, as in the case of Huntress, upon expulsion one of the items forfeit is the comm link. The use of the device came into greater use as a way to pinpoint the location of people to teleport. As a precaution, all Cadmus facilities are comm link-shielded.

However, it was also used against them by the Legion of Doom. As an effort to make Metabrawl lucrative again, Lex Luthor assigned Sonar to aid Roulette and broadcast Grodd's mind control technology on the comm link's signal. Female superheroes were targeted and used to fight in Metabrawl while in a trance state. They had no memory of the fights and only noted physical exhaustion chalked up to JLU missions. Huntress began to suspect something was awry while observing Black Canary. She followed her to a Metabrawl in Bludhaven and was captured. They both later realize this was the source of the problem and while being forced to fight Vixen, Shayera Hol, and Wonder Woman, they removed their links.
