Trivia

The characters of Wendy, Marvin, and Wonder Dog were introduced to the DC Comics Universe over 30 years later in Geoff John's 'Teen Titans' series around 2006. Marvin would be subsequently killed off (by a rabid Wonder Dog, no less) and Wendy made paraplegic by the writer who took over after Johns left the title two years later. See more »

The Whimping out of Super Heroes
28 March 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

I pretty much grew up reading the comic books that D.C. published in the 70's and 80's, so as a seven year old I was excited to hear that a new cartoon with all the great heroes that I loved was coming out. Imaging my shock when this turned out to be a wimpy piece of garbage that had our super heroes imparting valuable life lessons to the two annoying brats that they were saddled with, Wendy and Marvin, and their flea-bitten mutt, Wonder Dog.

Too bad this came out after several parents watchdog groups eliminated what they perceived as violent content from all children's programming. If I want to get valuable life lessons I will look at either the children's shows on P.B.S. or at another show that came out around the same time, Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids. At least that one was entertaining.
