Animated World of DC Comics: Super Friends vs. Mirror Master (Reflections in Crime, 1984)

If there was a disturbing trend to the Super Friends shorts between 1977-85, it was the fact that in some cases, villains were used, but not against their canonical nemesis. For example, the Gentleman Ghost, closely associated with Hawkman, became one of the first DCU villains to appear, but the Winged Wonder was nowhere to be seen.

Seven years later, Mirror Master, one of Flash's Rogues, made his animated debut in "Reflections of Crime", but where is the Scarlet Speedster? Not in this story. Instead, Mirror Master tangles with Superman & Samurai.

For those of you scoring at home, Jack Angel was the voice of both Samurai and Flash during this period.

Typical of the late period of the franchise.

Rating: B-.
