#12 Posted by EnSabahNurX (2321 posts) - - Show Bio

I like them one Smallville XD but the twin who can turn to water needs a power boost XD I say revamp those two, they could be cool if they become more developed and serious characters

I love the editing touch of G-Man changing into water there at the end. It was really well done.

@G-Man: 
Well, Joey deserves a raise. That little touch was beautifully done. 
 
I hope moving goes well for the staff. I almost forget there is no podcast this week.
#24 Posted by jamdown (301 posts) - - Show Bio

that has to be the worst power to change into water
#25 Posted by ImperiousRix (1144 posts) - - Show Bio

Nice, this was unexpected.  I'm definitely digging the shirt, too.

#26 Posted by Xenozoic Shaman (422 posts) - - Show Bio

I remember not liking them much while growing up, and now I can say that I feel the same way.  Kinda campy.

Awesome Wonder Twins t-shirt, G-man!

#28 Posted by symphonix (15 posts) - - Show Bio

This was great, especially as had just finished watching an old Superfriends episode on some retro channel I found.

#29 Posted by LP (683 posts) - - Show Bio

Smallville's version is better.... but turning into water? Seriously? All a common thug would need to do to stop him is to drink him!

The first comic I ever owned was the Super-Friends Special and watching them every Saturday was the best part of cartoons back then. A great retro 3 minutes.

#32 Edited by Big (329 posts) - - Show Bio

Tony looks like a Wonder Twin. In fact, Tony blends into one of the comic book panels in the background. I'm like, "Where's Tony?" I felt like he should  have done the Hussle while  he was telling the origin story - "Boom-chicka, WOW-WOW!"
#33 Posted by doordoor123 (3810 posts) - - Show Bio

 I have never seen the Wonder Twins in a comic. It would be nice to see them. And wheres Ragman? The only jewish superhero in DC?
meh.
Editor: This seemed pretty stale. Not the best ive seen from you.

#34 Posted by Big (329 posts) - - Show Bio
@madclawmannn:
That's why Wonder Twins must die.
#35 Posted by Big (329 posts) - - Show Bio
@ImJustLikeParker:
Only if it's  "Wonder Twins: The Later Years," with Eric Estrada and Rita Moreno. I'd see that!
#36 Posted by bingbangboom (782 posts) - - Show Bio

I always thought that these characters had alot of potential if done right... just havn't been.

#37 Posted by Comicjew (188 posts) - - Show Bio

He forgot to mention Zan can create buckets when in water form! 
Zan sounds completely useless and Jayna's powers sound like they're a rip off Beast Boy's.

But what if he changed back inside the  thug? :S

I helped the Wonder Twins back in my interning days.
 
They were captured and couldn't quite touch, so I put my cute little nose in the space between then became a conduit for their powers.
 
And another time I used my tail to get the keys to the cell.

#40 Edited by waruikumo (364 posts) - - Show Bio

And I always thought they were asian.   
 
Good job G-man, I love the 3-minute experts. 
 
PS that cat in the early part of the video, during their origin looks like battle cat from he-man.

Another good job on TME.

#43 Posted by simonchan (106 posts) - - Show Bio

I find this 3 min expert bit AWESOME.
 

#44 Posted by ArtisticNeedham (2471 posts) - - Show Bio

I say do another retcon and bring them back in the current continuity with their old super friends past story, but updated to have the quality of today stuff.  and have it written and drawn by some popular artists and writers.  like Maguire and Giffen.

#45 Posted by VicDiGital (6 posts) - - Show Bio

 Wow, that's a lot more about the Wonder Twins than I though actually existed.   
  
I'm happy to say that I contributed a SuperFriends parody to the pantheon of SuperFriends parodies.  This one was for Watchmen, and was a shot for shot remake of the initial trailer.  It features the Wonder Twins and Gleek in a prominent way.

 One thing i never understood & still don't is:  why can 1 of them ONLY turn to water???

#47 Posted by charlieboy (7148 posts) - - Show Bio

great video.
#48 Posted by Shadowdoggy (3868 posts) - - Show Bio

yeah, I was wondering why Tony didn't mention the JLU appearance/homage?????
#49 Posted by G-Man (38677 posts) - - Show Bio
@Shadowdoggy: I don't care what the Rolling Stones said, time is not on my side. You can see (and some people complain) that these videos tend to go over three minutes. I try to get as much in them as possible but some stuff simply has to get cut. Sure we could extend the time further but the point is to try to keep it brief.
