This was a four-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 must fight enemies whose powers are specifically designed to counteract their own powers. It is only through the intervention of Darkseid, as the new hero Janus, that they are able to figure out to switch opponents and defeat their foes.
