    Default Which characters would you put in a Challenge of the Super Friends reboot?

    If there was a Super Friends reboot, which heroes and villains would you put in it.

    The original one had 11 heroes and 13 villains. It's not necessary to keep the numbers the same in the reboot.

    Isn't this basically what Justice League Action was?

    I'd handle it the same way JLU, JLAction, and Snyder's run handled it. Use the Snyder Big 9 lineup (including Cyobrg on a regular basis though), with some of those guys in each episode (more balanced, less Bat-centric) and cycle in guest stars for each new story.

    I'm guessing you meant the Challenge of the Super Friends by the description you gave. With that in mind, I'd keep the rosters of the Super Friends and the Legion of Doom the same with the exceptions of subbing Vixen for Robin and Gentleman Ghost for Toyman.
    Currently Reading:Hawkman, Justice League, Justice League Dark, Legion of Super Heroes, Shazam, Wonder Woman, & Young Justice.

    We have JL and the Injustice Gang.
    So for Super Friends
    I'd focus specifically on the Hanna Barbara created heroes and make them their own team actually called Super Friends.
    Just give them all updates, pants and shirts to start.









    Further, use some hybrid version of their JLU/YJ analogs as their civilian iDs.

    Super Friends:
    1. Tye (Apache) Manitou Longshadow
    2. Volt aka Buster (Vulcan) Jones (after the man who voiced him)
    3. Eduardo (Desperado) Dorado
    4. Toshio (Samurai Wind Dragon) Eto
    5. Asami Qi(氣) Koizumi (a new addition)
    6. Exor Twins (Zan & Jayna & Gleek
    7. Rima (the bird girl)

    Villains again I would develop some of their HB created villains.

    If you are not using the SF specific characters then why call it that, you might as well use the JL

    ^^^dang, you need to re-edit that post!!!

    On topic, i’d Love to see a JLI cartoon, w. similar storylines and artwork...



    ...though being over 30 years old i’m not sure how faithful an adaptation it could actually be.

    Still, Bats, Fate, MM, Canary, Capt. Marvel, BB, Guy...ah the possibilities.

    I'd probably do an original roster and take the cast in directions that DC has failed to do. NO rehashing ANY comic storylines.

    Roster- Cyborg, Supergirl, Lightning , Donna Troy, Beast Boy, Terra.

    Supporting cast- Bumblebee, Power Girl (Tanya) and Roundhouse

    Villains- Ultra Humanite, Grail, Dr. Cyber, Cobalt Blue(heavily reimagined), government sponsored metahuman teams

    Love to see these old Hanna-Barbara Superfriends (or modern re-imaginings of them, like Tye Longshadow from Young Justice!). Skip the more famous 'Big 7' Superfriends entirely, just go with these new faces!

    It could be set in a world where the Big 7 are missing, or a running gag that these Superfriends are the backup or reserve, who 'just happen' to be left behind together when the Big 7 are off fighting some insane over-the-top cosmic threat, and the alarm sounds and it's up to them to save the day! After like, three episodes of this, one of them will comment to the camera, 'It's a weird coincidence that it's always us seven who get left behind to deal with these threats, don't you think?' and then it will never be mentioned again.

    JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time

    I would continue this. Turn into a series; cartoons or movies.

    That's pretty much a version of the Teen Titans. Super Friends is supposed to be the Justice League, right?

    So, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, Cyborg, Vixen, Green Lantern (Jessica Cruz), Firestorm, and Hawkgirl. Note that this lineup has four women, the original only had one, Diana. The kid sidekick characters would be the Super Sons, Robin and Superboy.

    Interesting. I think I'd....
    Keep Supes, Bats and Wonder Woman.... Good friends who do find each other difficult at times. Never address it directlly but Subtextually, perhaps Clark and Diana were a thing at some point but no longer. Supe and Bats would be best friends who frequently annoy the hell out each other.

    Also keep Arthur- Harpoon hand and beard but short haired

    No Marvin or Wendy or Wonderdog

    No Regular spot for Robin but a recurring spot for Nightwing

    Cassndra Cain would be Batgirl and have Robin's spot
    Black Lightning or Static Shock as a regular

    Maybe have Krypto around.

    Guest star spots for reservist likk , Flash, Atom, Black Canary, John Stewart, Wildcat, Green Arrow, Doctor Fate

    Out of the original line-up, only Robin could be dropped today, I think.

    Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman are necessary for prestige and pulling in viewers.
    Aquaman could've been dropped, but he's a bit popular again now thanks to the movie.
    Maybe replace Robin with Captain Mar, I mean Shazam.

    Then just fill in the ranks with Global Guardians members.
