Justice League of America was one of several DC Comics based superhero segments that formed part of the 60-minute compilation series, The Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure. Being an ancillary segment, only three, 7-minute Justice League of America episodes were produced.
When the forces of evil were too great for any single superhero to conquer alone, the combined might of the world’s greatest superheroes saved the day as the Justice League of America. The group was led by Superman, with other members including Aquaman, Green Lantern, Hawkman, the Flash, and the Atom, each of which had they own series that ran concurrently with Justice League of America. Notably, even though Aquaman appeared as a member of the JLA in the opening segment, he never actually participated in any of the JLA episodes. He and the other members did, however, reunite a few years later as members of Hanna-Barbera’s version of the JLA, the Super Friends, which ran through various titles and lineup changes from 1973 to 1985.
