The '''''Super Friends''''' had an ongoing ''comic book series'' published from 1976 until 1981.
  +
  +
The stories were further adventures of the popular [[Hanna Barbera’s Super Friends| Hanna-Barbera animated series]], ''The Super Friends''.
  +
  +
It began after the [[season 1| 1973 season]] of the TV series was canceled. It focused on the [[Justice League | SuperFriends]], and [[Wendy Harris|Wendy]] and [[Marvin White|Marvin]].

This ''comicbook series'' was responsible for creating the [[Global Guardians]]. Although it would not be till 1982 in the ''parallel universe'' of [[Earth-One]] that they go by that designation.
  +
  +
Like its ''TV counterpart'' the ''SuperFriends Comicbook'' was responsible for introducing several ''international [[superheroes]]''.
  +
  +
In Latin America, the series was called "Superamigos" (Spanish/Portuguese for [[Superfriends]]). These issues were published by [[Editora Abril]] and featured mainly reprints of English language [[DC Comics]], some that weren't even part of the [[American]] Superfriends comic.

* Writer [[E. Nelson Bridwell]], did his best to tie-in the [[Hanna Barbera’s Super Friends| ''SuperFriends'' TV series]] to established canon using footnotes. However, what he achieved was an entirely new universe for the [[Justice League| SuperFriends]], that fans call [[Earth-1A]].

* Bridwell said several times in the letter column that he did not want the [[Legion of Doom]] to appear; so they never did.{{Fact|}}

The Super Friends had an ongoing comic book series published from 1976 until 1981.

The stories were further adventures of the popular Hanna-Barbera animated series, The Super Friends.

It began after the 1973 season of the TV series was canceled. It focused on the SuperFriends, and Wendy and Marvin. Then in 1977, when the SuperFriends cartoon was relaunched with Zan and Jayna, instead of Wendy and Marvin;[1] the comic followed suit. It showed how the kids "retired" to attend college and even gave an origin story to the Wonder Twins.

Although the comic overlapped several seasons of the Superfriends, we assume that the entire series takes place chronologically between Season 1 and 2.[2]

This comicbook series was responsible for creating the Global Guardians. Although it would not be till 1982 in the parallel universe of Earth-One that they go by that designation.

Like its TV counterpart the SuperFriends Comicbook was responsible for introducing several international superheroes.

In Latin America, the series was called "Superamigos" (Spanish/Portuguese for Superfriends). These issues were published by Editora Abril and featured mainly reprints of English language DC Comics, some that weren't even part of the American Superfriends comic.
