Editorial Reviews

In 1985 this final version of Hanna-Barbera's Superfriends premiered. The Superfriends were once again headquartered at the Hall of Justice in Metropolis, and battled such familiar foes as Lex Luthor, Scarecrow and Darkseid.� Second only to Challenge of the Superfriends, Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians was one of the most faithful TV adaptations of DC Comic superheroes. Like its predecessor, SuperFriends: The Legendary Super Powers show, Galactic Guardians featured Adam West as Batman along with featuring Superman and Robin and showcasing relatively new superheroes Firestorm and Cyborg as well as members of previous Super Friend incarnations (Samurai, Green Lantern, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Hawkman, The Flash). The show featured Darkseid of Apokolips and his minions Kalibak and DeSaad as the primary protagonists. Other DC villains (the Joker, Lex Luthor, the Penguin, Scarecrow, Felix Faust, Joker, The Penguin, Brainiac, etc.) also appeared from time to time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superfriends grows up August 14, 2007
Well this is it, the final chapter of the Hanna-Barbera saga of the Justice League of America, and we go out with more treats for comic fans. There's appearances by past adversaries like Mxyzptlk, Brainiac, the Scarecrow (finally portrayed as he was meant to be!), and of course Darkseid and company, but we also have newcomers to the series like Felix Faust, the Penguin, the Joker, and the Royal Flush Gang. We have another new hero in Cyborg (sorry, Teen Titans fans, no booyahing to be found here) and the exit of campy characters like the Wonder Twins. And the stories! Superman "dies," Batman's origin is told on TV for the first time, and we also get probably the best and most original-spirited version of the Bizarros at the time (as they are now totally played for comedy). The characters all receive makeovers from their Alex Toth roots as well, some subtle, some more noticeable.

Did the series reach Timmverse-like quality? No. But it definitely concluded with a new hint of maturity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Episode breakdown; Classic but slightly modernized January 24, 2008
This series, "The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians", ran in the 80s and only made 8 episodes. All 8 are in this set:

Disk 1:
The Seeds of Doom
Ghost ship
The Bizarro Super Powers Team
Darkseid Deception
The Fear

Disk 2:
The Wild Cards
Brainchild
Escape From Space City
The Death of Superman

A couple of the above episodes are split in half to create 2 "shorts" - so the dvd says it's 10 episodes, but it's actually 8.

My daughter (& I) enjoyed the slightly more modernized style in this version compared to the 70s series. It's a tad more *cinematic* than it's predecessors, appearing to (barely) foreshadow the more naturalized drawings, scripts, and styles of the 90s animations.

The superfriends maintain their black & white, one-dimensional, clear cut *good* personalities so prominent in the 70s series. So, while the cartoon style seems updated, they have not yet written the multifaceted behaviors that the characters of today posess.

I find that one-dimensional-ness charming and *safe* for my young daughter to watch, providing great conversation fodder, they are so firm in their by-the-book behaviors, while today's characters are more jaded and likely to bend rules. Of course, today's characters provide great fodder in other ways, just that the older series is a safer starting point for children.

As a side note, I loved the addition of a strong, black superhero, (Cyborg), as well as the fact that it was his father who was the brilliant and talented man who invented the cyborg technology to save his son.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Superfriends Seasons July 29, 2007
This was a great superfriends' series. With new super heros like Firestorm and Cyborg, great animation for its time, and amazing storyboards. Some great episodes like "The Death Of Superman" or "Fear" make all the superfriends get together in spectacular action. Old and new villians join the superfriends in this series, the last one of that era and probably the best too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Pleasantly Surprised December 10, 2008
I have been guilty of buying up all of the prior Superfriends collections and, sadly, not for their intricate plots or beautiful artwork. No, indeed nostalgia is a powerful motivator in these instances and so I thought when my chronological Superfriends collection led me toward purchasing The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians, the final incarnation of the Superfriends formula.

I came into the set expecting a slightly modified variation of the Legendary Super Powers Show (which was the season before Galactic Guardians by the way); a show that I felt made vast improvements over seasons prior. What I found in Galactic Guardians was a revolution not only in just the realm of the Superfriends, but also what I thought was possible within the heavily restricted realm of Saturday morning cartoons circa 1985.

A closer look at what makes this incarnation vastly superior to prior efforts reveals a cast of individuals who would continue going on producing beautiful DCAU efforts even up through today: Andrea Romano (Batman: Animated series, Batman Beyond, Justice League, JL Unlimited, The Batman) directs the voice talent here and story editor Allan Barnett (The Batman) appears on the roster as well. Clearly this show was the stepping-stone to what would eventually become the DCAU as we know it today. Plus, thanks to reworked character models from none-other than famed comic artist José Luis García-López, the team received a much-needed makeover which coincided with DC comic books at the time.

The writing matured to include much more space-scenarios with (thankfully) an improved scientific understanding throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Animated Justice League Ever!!!
The closest animated version of the real Justice League ever. And yes, that includes the cartoony JLU on Cartoon Network, which was good, but a little too stylized.
