Did You Know?


Dwayne McDuffie's official website explained why certain characters such as Blue Beetle, Mary Marvel, Black Lightning, Plastic Man and Sandman did appear. Firestorm (from the Super Powersseries) was considered until Waverider was added and a new character named Firestorm was created in the comics. DC Comics did not give the rights for Black Lightning to be used, and have Robin, Batgirl and others from Batman comics on a banned list. Steel II, Vibe, Hawk, and Dove are in the series since they remained alive in the DC Animated Universe, though they did in the comics. The character of Galatea was created as a substitute for Power Girl. See more »

Supergirl: [Green Arrow and Captain Atom are arguing] HEY! We've got a giant out of control robot out there! But if you two guys are too busy playing Alpha Males Smackdown, I guess I'll just have to deal with it myself.
[starts to leave]
Green Lantern: SHAYERA!
[everyone turns to GL]
Green Lantern: You need a plan. You need to find its weakness.
