When global catastrophes strike, sometimes the job is too big for a
single hero. This is when the world's greatest superheroes answer the
call to join the Justice League. The Justice League's all-star roster
includes Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash,
Hawkgirl and Martian Manhunter. Justice League follows the premise and
storyline of the DC Comics comic books. Members of the Justice League
are called upon to battle against allied villains, supernatural
creatures and other powerful forces of evil determined to usurp
authority over the world and to destroy the Justice League.
our heroes come from vastly different backgrounds, even different
planets, they must learn to set aside their personal differences to
fight for a common cause. This does not prove easy. By their very
nature, these heroes are independent outsiders, who live according to a
strong personal code of honor. They must learn to trust and rely upon
each other. Members of the Justice League may never become "Superfriends"
but they learn to work together as a team to overcome a dangerous array
of interstellar invaders and world-conquering megalomaniacs. Along with
their many victories, the Justice League will also learn that sometimes
a hero's true measure of greatness is how she or he copes with
disappointment and defeat.
With so much at stake, every episode will truly be an epic event. The
Justice League's relentless pursuit of justice takes them to exciting,
exotic locations around the world, even extending to the farthest
corners of the galaxy. The Justice League protects the Earth from a
floating space station in orbit called The Watchtower. It serves as a
central meeting place for the League's busy members while they work to
detect and defeat threats from remote corners of outer space.
The Justice League superheroes first jumped from the pages
of DC Comics to television on The Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure,
but it was Superfriends (1975) that united Batman, Robin, Superman,
Wonder Woman and Aquaman for a weekly Saturday-morning series on ABC.
Four spin-off series followed: The All New Super-Friends Hour (1977),
Challenge of the Superfriends (1978), The World's Greatest Superfriends
(1979), and The Super Friends Hour (1980). Each show introduced new
characters and The Super Friends Hour incorporated animated safety tips.
