Storyline

This iteration of the Superfriends program contained full half-hour episodes which were among the darkest of the superheroes' careers. It featured only Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Robin, Aquaman, and the Wonder Twins. Their adventures took them into underground kingdoms of dwarves, mushroom worlds populated by tar creatures, transformed them into vampire bats, pitted them against the Super enemies of an alternate dimension's Hall of Evil, and even a planet Mr. Myxyzptlk has based on L. Frank Baum's land of Oz. Written by Scott Hutchins <scottandrewh@home.com>

Only a few brief moments in an otherwise lousy season
15 January 2003 | by comic207See all my reviews

What I remember most about this series was "bitter disappointment." The extended members of the JLA (Flash, Green Lantern, etc.) were all but gone, leaving the main team of Superman, Batman and Robin, Wonder Woman, and Aquaman with the Wonder Twins and that damn Gleek! I was getting bored. Most of the episodes involved darker menaces, but they made up one-dimensional throwaway villains that I couldn't care less about.

There were a couple of bright moments, such as the one where the SuperFriends powers were stolen for a Super-Frankenstein Monster. To stop him, the remaining portion of the heroes energies were transferred into Robin, who used it to single-handedly defeat the monster and save his comrades. This was great because it finally featured Robin as more of a sidekick dependent on Batman, which was the way he had been portrayed in the comics for years. There was another which introduced the mirror universe, with the evil Super Enemies. But did they have to add the mustaches and eyepatches like if they didn't wear them they couldn't possibly be evil? ;)

All in all, I avoid this series most of the time.
