Meet the Allied Perpetrators of Evil (A. P. E.): The Warlock, a made-for-TV villain; Lex Luthor, the team founder and leader; The Toyman (Winslow Schott), the last guy you want to buy toys from for your kids; The Prankster, who looks nothing like his original appearance in the comics (Oswald Loomis, you see, had a gap tooth and is stout), as he looks more like a British thug who is out of place in Metropolis. The goal, of course, is to eliminate Superman. Good luck with that, gentlemen.
A. P. E. would have two go-rounds as a unit, and this is the first one.
Typical fare of the period. Not on board with the pseudo-European accent given to Luthor, as he was as American as apple pie. Moldy apple pie, that is.
