Which Intro Do You Prefer?

Created to coincide with the popular Kenner Super Powers Collection, Hanna-Barbera studios created the Superfriends: The Legendary Super Powers Show in 1984…

…and followed it a year later with The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians.

Which Intro do you prefer, friends? A big thanks to hewey1972 for uploading these two up on YouTube.

    Definitely the first one. It does have some lame footage…I mean really, is that all that Aquaman is good for? Having fish throw him out of the water! The music is better, though, and I like the shots of superman much better than laser-bouncing from the 2nd one.

    I’m with the first one too. The classic theme sounds better than the Galactic Guardians version. It’s more watered down in GG.

  3. I have to say the second one. Superman seems to be more powerful and Darkseid looks badass, a lot better than he does in the first one. Plus we get to see the Joker! you can’t go wrong with the Joker.

    I have to go with the first one, but I’m biased by nostalgia. I saw the first one many times as a kid, never saw the second one. Seriously, though, what did that robot do to get it handed to him by every superhero on the planet? He didn’t look that aggressive to me.

  5. @Doug Yeah, he kind of looked surprised by how all the heroes were beating up on him! Ha, ha.

    I’m going to have to agree with Pixelcreatures, I prefer the second intro, probably because Darkseid looks more like Jack Kirby’s version. Plus the amount of surprise and fear that registers on the Joker’s face when Superman rips through that very Kirby wall is priceless. :)
