TV Shows: Challenge of The Super Friends
Oh Yeah....that's the stuff. aaaaaaaaaahhhhh
The Fab 5 are always there no matter who tags along.
I Love The Superfriends!
Now that statement can mean a lot of things because there were so many different lineups on the Hall of Justice hero roster. No matter what series the following 5 Super Heroes were always there.
Superman a/k/a mild mannered reporter Clark Kent is the all-purpose Super Hero who has great strength, can fly and impervious to everything but Red Kryptonite.
Batman & Robin a/k/a Millionaire Bruce Wayne and his ward the boy wonder Dick Grayson who defend Gotham City with Alfred's help.
Wonder Woman a/k/a Princess Diana of the Amazons is sometimes seen flying her invisible jet but is always packing her magic lasso.
Aquaman who's claim to fame is that he communicates with the fishes and is generally perceived as useless unless you're writing an episode of Entourage of course.
As a Kid I Wanted to Be Green Lantern soooo bad.
