Storyline

In this series, the adventures of various superhero characters from DC Comics are featured. When trouble erupts, the last son of Krypton doffs his identity as Clark Kent to become Superman. When villians threaten the sea, they must face the power of its Atlantian defenders, Aquaman, Aqualad and Mera. In addition to these featured characters, we have several other heroes' adventures. These include the adventures of police scientist Barry Allen who fights crime as the fastest man alive, the Flash. Katar Hol fights crime as the winged avenger, Hawkman. Armed with the wonderous power ring, test pilot Hal Jordan responds to threats to his sector of space as its assigned Green Lantern. Scientist Ray Palmer opposes evil using his shrinking and density control equipment as the Atom. In addition, these heroes work together for the Justice League of America. Also, the teen sidekicks of these heroes have their own adventures as the Teen Titans. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Trivia

The Teen Titans line up was Kid Flash, Aqualad, Speedy and Wonder Girl. Notably absent was Robin. This was because Robin was appearing in the Batman (1966) television series at the time, broadcast by rival network ABC, so they could not use the character. Whenever the Titans contacted each other on screen at the beginning of the episode, each character would appear on separate monitors. There was one monitor that was usually blank, presumably this would have been where Robin's image would appear. See more »

Goofs

Green Lantern normally wears his power ring on his right hand, but in several shots he is firing the ring from his left hand. See more »

Quotes

Barry Allen: It's Blue Bolt again, Wally, and you know what that means. Time for us to get into our speedgear, kid.
[Barry Allen and Wally West transform into The Flash and Kid Flash]

What is so hard about the costumes?
9 June 2002 | by (Vero Beach, FL) – See all my reviews



I was in fourth grade, the thick of my comic-reading years, when this show came out. I couldn't believe my luck that my favorite DC heroes were now on TV.

The stories may seem corny now, but they were played straight, unlike the campy or downright comical Super Friends.

But some things really annoyed me. Most basically: What was so hard about getting the costumes right? Almost every character had such changes to his costume that even I at age 9 could notice (and still remember at age 44!).

1. The show gave Aquaman black boots. In the comic, he wore no boots, just the green tights.

2. The show gave Flash yellow gauntlets and a regular yellow belt. In the comic, he wears a yellow lighting belt and lightning bands around his forearms with red gloves.

3. The show reversed Kid Flash's color schemes.

4. The show gave Hawkman some kind of claw/glove on his right hand. It could emit beams of some kind. The comic Hawkman fought bare-handed, though sometimes with a mace. And he didn't have a pet hawk in the comics.

5. The Atom wore a plain blue shirt and trunks, broken by a black belt, instead of the comic's red and blue shirt, blue belt, and no trunks on red tights.

6. Green Lantern's costume came out unscathed. But he has this alien buddy Kiro instead of the Inuit buddy Pieface. Never figured that one.

7. We get Wonder Girl and Speedy in the Teen Titans, but we don't get Wonder Woman or Green Arrow in the Justice League of America. Go figure.

This show left me wondering for years whether Filmation got the rights to the characters, but not to all of the costumes. At least when Super Friends came out, they got the costumes right. And they gave us Wonder Woman, too!
