In episode 144 of the Man of Screen podcast, Mike Zummo begins his journey into the ninth and final season of “Superfriends”, even though “Superfriends” is nowhere in the title.
Welcome to the “The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians”.
And with the change brings a new format, at least in the first segment.
First, Darkseid is going to launch his attack on Earth because he wants to take over. Hes still after Wonder Woman and wants to make her his bride.
But this time, hes going to attack with plants, a whole lot of them and they will make Earth into a new Apokolips.
Were also going to meet a new superhero, one you dont normally associate with the Justice League. Youre going to meet DCs first computer hacker, Cyborg.
Watch as he helps the team combat “The Seeds of Doom”.
Then were going into space as a few members of the team are on a mission. And they run into a derelict ship. And theres an automated system that attacks the team at every opportunity.
How does Darkseid fit into this?
What happens when we visit “The Ghost Ship”?
And then the episode is going to completely go mad as we get a team-up of the zany as Mr. Mxyzptlk tries to lend a hand to Bizarro and watch for the madness and mayhem that comes with “The Bizarro Super Powers Team”.
Next time: Two 22-minute episodes: “The Darkseid Deception” and “The Fear”.
