This was a six-issue limited series published as a companion to a Super Powers action figure line on sale at the time, and was intended to be an introduction to the DC characters for fans of the action figures who may not be reading comics. The series did not fit into canon however.

Synopsis

The Super Friends attack Darkseid’s base on the moon but are captured! After they are freed by the Martian Manhunter’s shape-shifting abilities, they must stop Darkseid from destroying the Earth. Darkseid is defeated by his minion DeSaad, who stages a coup then is arrested by Batman.
