Format

Super Friends: The Legendary Super Powers Show was the first Super Friends series in a new format since 1979's The World's Greatest Super Friends. Continuing the previous three years' policy of producing short stories, this series' format was two stories per half hour, so all the separate stories were ten minutes long each.

According to DC writer/historian Mark Waid, Aquaman's sole appearance in The Legendary Super Powers Show comes via his appearance within the opening credits. The same is true for The Flash and Hawkman. This was the first time Wonder Woman was animated with the =w= symbol on her costume instead of the eagle design, this carried over into the final series Galactic Guardians, which led to Justice League in 2001, where she wears a modified version of the =w= symbol.

The series was also noteworthy for using Adam West as the voice of Batman, two decades after the end of the 1960s live action Batman series. West replaced Olan Soule and would continue through the subsequent Galactic Guardians series.

Villains

 

For this series, Lex Luthor and Brainiac were completely revamped to resemble their comic book counterparts.

Batman Villains, Joker and the Penguin made their first and oly appareance in the run of the series.
