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.

Trivia

In an effort to add racial diversity, Black Vulcan, Samurai, and Apache Chief were created specifically for the show. Black Vulcan is black, Samurai is Japanese and Apache Chief is an American Indian. 25 years later, the Justice League comic writer Joe Kelly, a fan of the show, brought the character of Apache Chief to the comic book world. Hanna-Barbera had originally planned to use Black Lightning, DC Comics' first prominent black superhero, for the African-American character. But the company learned that, in order to use the character, it would have to pay a royalty fee to Tony Isabella, the writer who had created Black Lightning and wrote the "Black Lightning" comic book. Instead, the artists created Black Vulcan, whose powers and costume were similar to Black Lightning's, in order to avoid paying the fee. In response, Tony Isabella wrote a story in the comic book that featured a con artist named Barbara Hanna and an impostor pretending to be Black Lightning. See more »

Wondering about The Wonder Twins
20 June 2004 | by (East Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

I like this show better than the first one, but liked "Challenge Of The SuperFriends" better than this one. Why? Because of the Wonder Twins and that annoying monkey thing that was with him (How did it ALWAYS manage to have a bucket when Zan turns into water?). It would have been nice to have more info on them. Also, why was the Wonder Twins limited to turning into animals and water (Or something with water, like icicles)? Finally, on their own (When they had their segments that teaches kids a "valuable lesson"), they did o.k., but they screwed up a lot when working with the SuperFriends. Am I the only one who noticed this? Probably not. Personally, I would like to have the episodes, just to scream in sugar-induced hysteria, "WONDER TWIN POWERS, ACTIVATE!!!" I would scream either "FORM OF A WATER SPOUT!" or "SHAPE OF A SNAKE!" Then I would fall to the ground, writhing around, covered in water!

O.K. Seriously (And with all the sugar hallucinations gone), this was a pretty good series. Great for people who love 70's cartoons or any cartoon.
