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

Supergirl calls the team to tell them that she, as New Athens Experimental School student adviser Linda Danvers, is bringing some of her students to Gotham City to attend the Nostalgia Convention, and her wards are hoping to see the Super Friends. His cousin assures them that they’ll make an appearance.

In Gotham City, while checking into the hotel, Kara notices the weather is being oddly freaky, so she sneaks off to investigate.

Elsewhere Weather Wizard is trying to steal a valuable collection of presidential campaign buttons when he is caught by Wonder Woman and Supergirl. Supergirl retrieves the stolen buttons, but the Wizard sneaks out during the confusion.

The Super Friends are sure that the Weather Wizard will strike again to steal another valuable collection, so they stake out the convention. Kara/Linda cannot help but feel a bit jealous when she sees her students -who usually ignore Supergirl- swarming about the super-team.

The Weather Wizard indeed strikes again. Fortunately, he is spotted by Kara. He quickly tries to run away, and he actually manages to evade the most of the heroes but is stopped by the Wonder Twins and caught by Supergirl.

The next morning, Linda/Kara’s students buy a copy of the Gotham Gazette hoping to see pictures of the Super Friends in action. To their surprise, the front page is dominated by pictures of the Girl of Steel. Linda tries to explain to them that, for Gotham, Supergirl is the news.
