Storyline

The further adventures of the Justice League of America. The battle is now primarily against the evil New God Darkseid, who is bent on conquering Earth. Against this threat, the Super Friends are strengthened by the addition of a student and scientist who are able to fuse at will to become Firestorm, a superhero whose main power is the ability to manipulate the atomic structure of any inorganic object into anything he desires.

Trivia

The new-look Brainiac debuted in this series. Brainiac's new look came about as a result of the decision to alter the character radically in time to celebrate the anniversary of ACTION COMICS, Superman's debut title. After his radical transformation, Brainiac appeared as essentially a big metal walking skeleton with a giant pink braincase containing his altered computer brain - the same altered appearance that he boasts on this show.

Vast improvement
15 January 2003 | by (Manchester, NH) – See all my reviews

After "Worlds Greatest Superfriends," I had pretty much given up on the Super Friends. But they brought back a new series which introduced Firestorm (a very popular character in comics) and Darkseid (major villain). There had been a lot of updating with some characters, such as the return of DC villians like Lex Luthor and Brainiac, a little more detail in characters (Wonder Woman and her boyfriend Steve Trevor), etc. It wasn't perfect, but it was a step in the right direction and a welcome relief.

The Wonder Twins were pretty much gone, I think. By the way, the Twins were introduced in mainstream comics in 1995 in a Justice League-related title, EXTREME JUSTICE, with a revised origin and (thank God) no Gleek. They were last seen in YOUNG JUSTICE.
