After the conclusion of the Thanagarian invasion, the Justice League went about rebuilding the Watchtower. The main power source was replaced by a nuclear reactor room housed in the Watchtower's lower level. The binary fusion generator was also tied into the main weapons system, a beam cannon. Although the weapon was an object of content with the U.S. federal government, the League justified its existence with alien invasion. A blast from the cannon drains the Watchtower of most of its power and a whole-scale system reboot requires one hour to recharge. As a precaution, staff are ordered to exit the reactor room upon fire, radiation alarms are placed along the tower, bulkhead doors are on standby to be sealed, and at least J'onn Jonzz can override command.

Midway up from the reactor room is the High Security Storage Room. Only authorized personnel are allowed inside. A closely guarded password of 6-22-77 JOS365 is used for access to the room. It contains many confiscated weapons from the many missions conducted by the Justice League including Grodd's Mind Control Module, Thanagarian weapons, Toyman's Takion-firing robot, Lex Luthor's Battle Suit, the Power Disrupter, and the Annihilator. The Watchtower eoncompasses at least 10 levels and travel may be done through access elevators or a stairwell. Staff technicians were hired by the League to handle day to day operations of the now sprawling complex. According to a strict duty schedule, staff meant at a designated place and time to be teleported to the Bridge Transporter Deck. Upon arrival, they are required to present their ID Card, submit to biometric scans, and pass a metal detector.

The only other method of transportation is the Javelin bay. Bay doors are opened remotely but in extreme cases, can be manually opened by a team of two with enhanced strength. The exact number is unknown, but there are at least 27 Javelins and other mass transport vehicles. Other rooms include a large mess hall, a recreation room fully equipped with HD television, Sick Bay, personal quarters for each member of the League, holographic training room, a garden, Utility Room, and a series of interrogation rooms marked as Security 01 and on. At least 7 such rooms exist. There are at least two rooms that only the founders circle and a chosen few are allowed in, a main conference room and a court room-like area. Regular security sweeps are conducted on each level at certain intervals of time. The room with the most activity is the Bridge where J'onn Jonzz exclusively resides. From there, he has access to sensors, long-range communication, League comlinks, the binary fusion generator, and a direct line to the President of the United States.

A series of annexes are in close orbit near the Watchtower. It appears to be the source for the Watchtower's communications array and each have their own power source. Despite enhanced security, the Watchtower was still invaded on three occassions. Task Force X sans Clock King, Hermes, and Galatea and the Ultimen. This Watchtower is still vulnerable to magic and Lex Luthor. In at least one Hypertimeline, the Watchtower was destroyed. In one, Chronos and modified Jokerz overpowered and destroyed it in the 2050's. After Lex Luthor and Brainiac were defeated, the fusion cannon was dismantled. The Watchtower was allowed to operate and coordinated with the Metro Tower on Earth. Based on Chronos' hypertimeline, it can be assumed that the Watchtower is still in operation in the 2050's.
