Did You Know?


The Legion of Doom traveled to the year 1941 to prevent Diana from becoming Wonder Woman. 1941 was the same year Wonder Woman made her first comic debut in All Star Comics #8. See more »


The origins of Cheetah, Luthor, and most especially Bizarro are tied into the origins of Wonder Woman and Superman. Without a Wonder Woman and a Superman, there shouldn't be a Cheetah, a Luthor, or a Bizarro, but the villains are unaffected by the changes in history. See more »

good episode
14 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just watched this episode guys, and in it when Green Lantern is rescued bye the Flash i think it is, later when they all go to rescue Hawkman and the others, Superman goes in and tears up the room there in Green Lantern is outside yet when Superman gets in to the room where Hawkman is there's Green Lantern in there with them as if he was also captured, I don't think anyone thought about that at the time, its more of a goof than anything but its neat. I grew up watching The Superfriends all the way through the 80s when they changed it to Superpowers Team Galactic Guardians, awesome show for its time, pre- crisis DC comics. before Flash(Barry Allen ) was killed
