How's that for a slice of fried gold?
A peek into what's on my mind...for better or for worse...
Successories: The Superfriends

In keeping with the release of The Dark Knight (go see it right now, it's that good!), I decided to post more comic book-related successories with a blast from my past - the Superfriends! I still have very fond memories of countless Saturday mornings watching so-bad-they're-good episodes of my favorite heroes. Incidentally, if you'd like a good laugh about the Superfriends, check out seanbaby.com's commentary on the classic Superfriends shows (thanks jharish for introducing me to that site). Warning though, it's not polite or for the kids...but damn funny!








Recent past successories (both by me and ones I've found online) can be found here. The complete index of all my posted successories can be found here.

Have some successories you'd like to post? Post them at successoriesfun.

ROFWL wrong but hilarious.

I think you could also have put in a few about how they got all 'Diverse' with Apache Chief and Black Lightning(The two Hanna Barbara made up to make it more 'pc' back then).

I think there was a whrilwind Japanese guy too. There we so many characters that weren't Batman, Superman and Wonderwoman, the three mainstays of the Superfriends. (Flash and others didn't show up in as many episodes, it was like those three had the best contracts for screen time)

That thought has occured to me, but it was surprisingly hard enough to find viable Superfriends images for this set, I'll have to really hunt to find images of the "b leaguers."

PS: I commissioned this icon with you in mind. A friend of mine was offering for $5 and I think he's bad ass so I gave him lots of money for a bunch.

Anyway, to respond to your point, the 'B Leagers' were featured in Harvey Birdman, Attorney At Law, quite a bit. Black Lightning and Apache Chief are in it. But not that Japanese Guy. I could look him up but I'm lazy right now.

Yeah, I remember them on Harvey Birdman...
20th-Jul-2008 11:35 pm (UTC) - I hate that I like the art in the first one
Don't get me wrong--I understand why Wonder Woman in the first picture is, if not impossible, then at least highly improbable, and that the fact that I like the picture is a failing of mine, not a success by the artist, but...um...who drew that?

Thankfully, it's not Rob Liefeld, as both Messrs. Carlin and DiDio wisely kept him far away from DC. Well, that and her waist doesn't look like it would snap like a twig...and her legs are, if a bit muscular, at least well-toned and not entirely geometrical. I also presume one might be able to see her feet with the naked eye. Jim Lee, perhaps? Or an imitator?

I haven't the foggiest idea who drew that picture, but it pretty much represents what I think of most comic book artists.

And I say that being someone who tried to become one many years ago!

"Superheroes" has a link problem. Good thing I've got supervision with the smaller copy.

I think you may have been trying to click on "Superheroes" while I was replacing it. I found a typo in it and replaced it with an updated image. It should work just fine now!
