Jason and Fred Savage were reunited after having not seen each other in 6 years when they did a guest appearance playing, of all things, two brothers who were also superheroes on Justice League (2001) in an episode titled "Hawk & Dove". Ironically, Fred voiced the older, more aggressive brother, Hank Hall/Hawk, while Jason voiced the younger, more docile brother, Don Hall/Dove, a complete reversal of their roles on The Wonder Years (1988), even though it was originally intended for Jason to voice the older brother and Fred the younger brother.
Based his characterization of bullying older brother Wayne on "Wonder Years" on his own older brother, who liked to taunt him whenever he could. In one episode where Wayne keeps stopping and forwarding a car so Kevin can't get in, this is one of many things that Jason's own brother did to him.
