Kind of a corny start
15 January 2003 | by (Manchester, NH) – See all my reviews

OK, it was a kids show. I accept that. That's why they didn't want to scare kids with bloodthirsty villains like Lex Luthor and the Joker and instead used well-intentioned mad scientists so that kids could learn about right and wrong. ;-)

I only remember a few scenes from the first season before they were rerun years later. First introduced to Wonder Woman and Aquaman. During reruns, I saw that there were guest appearances by Green Arrow and Plastic Man. There was even one with the Blackhawks, but I haven't seen it yet.

The thing that really irks me was Wendy and Marvin. Never really liked them. And Wonder Dog was a Scooby-Doo wannabe, let's face it!

Some think it's a classic, some think it's crap. I like to think of the first season as a prototype for the real thing to come, right up to "Justice League."
