This series features the first appearances of the New Gods of Apokolips, such as Darkseid, Kalibak and Desaad. This was prompted by the fact that this series features the characters of the Kenner Toy Company's Super Powers collection and the toy company felt that the creations of the renowned comic book artist, Jack Kirby, were ideal larger-than-life villains for the toy line. In addition, Kirby was commissioned to design the action figures of his creations and thus for the first time in his artistic career received direct compensation for his creative work that was otherwise done in work-for-hire contracts.

This series was actually pretty good. I haven't seen all the old series yet, just the original, and this is much better than that one. The stories are much more entertaining and they actually have real villains. Sadly, they just use the same three over and over(Darkeseid, Lex Luthor and Mxyzptlk). While they seem to often repeat the theme of the Super Friends easily getting captured, it's never boring. I noticed that Darkseid sounded like Dr. Claw from Inspector Gadget and upon doing a little research, it turns out to be the same voice actor. Surprisingly, the same guy did the voice of Marvin in the original Super Friends series. This time the episodes are only a half hour and that helps a lot. They have proved(n) they can't write a good hour long Super Friends many times. One disappointment is that they couldn't make Firestorm's hair look like fire. It just looks like a stupid hat. This series is definitely worth watching.
