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 »

This is where I first got into comics
15 January 2003 | by (Manchester, NH) – See all my reviews

I had seen a couple of the 1973 Super Friends cartoons, but don't remember enough about them from that time. There was Superman, Batman and Robin, and the first time I had seen Wonder Woman and Aquaman. When this series premiered, I had noticed that Wendy, Marvin, and Wonder Dog were gone (In retrospect, an improvement). The series had several formats. The first story was a team-up between the central Super Friends (Superman, Batman *and* Robin, Wonder Woman, and Aquaman), followed by a solo Wonder Twins story, an extended story with the entire main cast of Super Friends, and the part I lived for...a team-up with a Super Friend and another super-hero...this is how I first learned about the Flash, Green Lantern, Hawkman and Hawkgirl, Rima, the Atom, and other "made-up" heroes like Black Vulcan (who should've been Black Lightning), Samurai (whose wind powers reminded me of the Red Tornado), and Apache Chief (can you spell stereotypical?). I might have the line-up mixed up.

The art was pretty good even if the stories were simplistic (again, in retrospect). When I found out many characters had their own comics, I had to read about them, and the dominoes rolled...I hope to see those team-ups again.
