Recently, my wife asked me who the members of the Super Friends were, and I started down the list.  By the time I reached the mid-teens, my child laughed so hard, they nearly choked to death on their taco.  As the nerd who remembers things, it’s occasionally hard for me to remember that not everyone knows that there were TWENTY-THREE members of the Super Friends/Super Powers Team between ’73 and ’86, leading to today’s Alex Toth-designed query…

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    I get to about 17 before stalling out. But I know that there are many episodes that I have either never seen or very much forgotten.

Let’s say yes, that would be 23!

    About 10, but the show was never shown here and I’m just a bit too young to have seen most of it originally anyway.
