Superfriends grows up
James Fabiano | 08/14/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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."
One of the best Superfriends Seasons
J. Hector Gomez Zurita | Chicago, IL USA | 07/29/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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."
Episode breakdown; Classic but slightly modernized
Blahoooooo | Southern California | 01/24/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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."
