Did You Know?


The Ultimen team from "Ultimatum" represents a "reunion" or fusion of various previous versions of the Justice League. The Ultimen themselves are based on characters created for The All-New Super Friends Hour (1977) who were not previously existing comic book characters. Shifter and Downpour are based on the Wonder Twins, Long Shadow is based on Apache Chief, Wind Dragon is based on Samurai, while Juice is based on Black Vulcan. Additionally, the structure atop the high rise, which is the Ultimen's headquarters is modeled after the iconic Hall of Justice. The character of Max Lord is the same as the comics character introduced in the 1990s who took over the post-Crisis Justice League and remodeled it as an international business enterprise with loose ties to the United Nations. Furthermore, the Justice League members who oppose the Ultimen in the episode are those who were best known as the "Super Friends": Batman, Superman, Aquaman and Wonder Woman. See more »


When Superman asks Long Shadow about Cadmus, he is on the right, Batman is to their left, and Wonder Woman is across from them. When the Army arrives, Wonder Woman is to Long Shadow's left, Superman stands across from them, Aquaman is the rightmost figure, and Batman is nowhere to be seen, and after the jeep arrives Batman has returned between Long Shadow and Aquaman.

Wonder Woman: Whatever's going on, we'll do everything in our power to...
Wind Dragon: Yes, *power*. That's what it always comes down to, doesn't it? And that's the only way we'll ever be remembered. If we're the ones who take down the Justice League, the world will never forget us!
Batman: Listen to yourself., you're not making any sense! You're getting sicker!
Wind Dragon: Translation: They're afraid to face us.
Long Shadow: No!
Wind Dragon: As a man said, "You're either with us, or against us"!

Nod to the Superfriends
21 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this episode was a great nod to the superfriends.

Apache Chief, Black Vulcan, Samurai, and the Wonder Twins are all represented here.

This acknowledgment would have been good enough. It is unfortunate that this series degraded into the Saturday Morning Cartoon during its last season, while the prior season was the most intelligently written American Animation Adventure show I had ever seen. Every week uncovering the Government and Luthor sub plots was exciting. I wish they could have left the superfriends where they belonged, in the 70's.

That said, Long Shadow was a very successful crossover from Apace Chief, I was glad to see him appear in several additional episodes. The other characters were not explored too much.
