This series adapted the adventures of the popular Hanna-Barbera animated TV series, ‘The Super Friends’ and took place outside of the established Pre-Crisis reality of the time.

Synopsis

The Overlord returns, gloating that he has escaped justice by blaming his crimes on his ’employer’, Sandor Fane, then embarks on a new scheme of conquest, hypnotizing the Super Friends to be his puppets. They are defeated and returned to normal by the Wonder Twins, with help from Green Fury, Tasmanian Devil, Nubia, Seraph, Mera, Aqualad and Green Lantern but the Overlord escapes.
