Storyline

Continuing the adventures of the Justice League, this incarnation of the show replaced Marvin, Wendy, and Wonder Dog with the Wonder Twins. Zan and Jayna, from the planet Exor, possessed shape shifting powers; Zan could become any form of water or ice, while Jayna could assume the shape of any animal. Assisted by their pet monkey Gleek, they not only helped the Justice Leaguers but lent assistance to teenagers in trouble. In addition to the classic Superman/Batman/Robin/Aquaman/Wonder Woman lineup, guests such as the Flash, the Atom, Green Lantern, and Hawkman & Hawkwoman appeared occasionally.

A Slight Improvement
1 May 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

When this version first premiered I was wondering how I was going to like it as opposed to the original show. Even though it wasn't much better, at least it was a slight improvement. The shows tended to still be overly preachy, but at least you had some real foes for the heroes and at least Zan and his twin sister Jayna had super powers as opposed to Wendy and Marvin (they still could have eliminated Gleek, but at least he wasn't Wonder Dog).

However, they could have explained how the Twins joined the team and what happened to Wendy and Marvin. For the record, the twins were offered membership after helping the team defeat an alien who wanted to destroy Earth and Wendy and Marvin left the team after graduating from high school (Wendy went to Paradise Island to study with the Amazons and Marvin to Gotham University).

Another thing I really enjoyed was the fact that they brought in other super heroes including The Flash, The Atom, Green Lantern, Hawkman and Hawkgirl. Too bad they had to add characters like Samurai (who as another person said was a duplicate of Red Tornado), Black Vulcan (who actually should have been the moderately successful Black Lightning) and Apache Chief. I guess Hanna Barbera couldn't get permission from D.C. comics to use the heroes they were patterned after, nor could they get permission to use Green Arrow, Black Canary or Elongated Man. Maybe I would have liked this show a little more if those heroes were included.
