Call Me Stormy

Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

Universe Of Evil

Hey kids (of all ages), it’s Saturday Morning Cartoon time again!

Hanna-Barbera’s take on the Justice League of America were kinda’ phoning it in by the end of the Disco Decade. Although the WORLD’S GREATEST SUPERFRIENDS had a full hour time slot (albeit as the 8AM curtain-jerker), only eight half-hour episodes were made for the series. The rest was recycled from earlier Super Friends shows.

I picked this one because it features a concept that has been recurring since the DC Multiverse was established in the early 1960s, and which has been beaten like the proverbial deceased equine in recent years… Alternate versions of our superheroes — including Superman, Batman and Robin, Wonder Woman and Aquaman — who are, in fact, villains. From October 1979. More from the Old Horseman.
