SuperFriends Wiki

Super Powers series was published by DC Comics, in three volumes, from 1984 to 1986. These comics are part of the larger Super Powers Merchandise Collection.

The Crisis on Infinite Earths: The Compendium (the collected works), formally establishes that Super Powers Volumes 1, 2 and 3 as well as the Super Powers Collection as all happening on Earth-Thirty-Two (Earth-1A).


Super Powers, Volume One (1984)

This series focuses on the Justice League's further conflict with Darkseid, which started in the season 9 episode of the TV Series, The Bride of Darkseid (Part One), the rest of season 9 and season 10.

This conflict is also further explored in the next Super Powers Series, Volume Two and in the Super Powers mini-comics (1984-1985).

Super Powers, Volume Two (1985-1986)

Like the previous series, this series also focuses on the events that occur after the Justice League's battle with Darkseid.

Super Powers, Volume Three (1986)

This series significantly departs from previously established canon, due to the origin of Samurai being shown a long time after his character was already introduced, even though the above mentioned Compendium Volume formally established that Super Powers Volumes as happening on Earth-Thirty-Two / Earth-1A. This can be explained via hypertime.
