The Super Friends had to deal with a lot of problems. They had to fight crime without actual violence on the screen, one of them was a bucket of water, six of them didn't wear pants and the non-Caucasian ones were so clumsily written that they seemed like animatronics from a racist pizza parlor. To make matters even more confusing, I saw this episode in French and translated it back into English with no knowledge of the French language. I was extremely true to what the original plot probably was, but there is a two percent margin of error. Please enjoy Twice-Translated Tales of the Super Friends.
This should have resulted in years of therapy.
Sometimes it's just a matter of making the US Department of Defense look, like, REALLY cool.
Actual impending doom like global climate change or mass extinction just makes people bored.
