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.See more »

Vast improvement, 15 January 2003
Author: (comic207@aol.com) from Manchester, NH

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.
