Holy adaptation! How well do you know DC Comics superheroes on television?

Can you do this quiz ''Justice''?

Svengoolie follows Wonder Woman on Super Sci-Fi Saturday Night — but now Svengoolie can call Wonder Woman a true acquaintance. That's right, Svengoolie is rubbing shoulders with the Justice League, the ultimate horror host turns up in issues of DC Comics in the crossover event Svengoolie Meets the DC Universe.

In the comic, the Justice League are even watching MeTV in the Hall of Justice!

That got us thinking about DC superheroes in classic TV. Adventures of Superman kicked off the DC television universe in 1952. In the decades since, DC characters have had network shows, Saturday morning cartoons and syndicated series.

Let's see how well you know the history of DC superheroes on TV.

HOWDY THERE, ROBERT! I didn't know that you log on to the "METV" website, or that you watch shows on the "METV" channel. But, as Groucho Marx would say, "It's a small world after all". LOL!

14 out of 14.

Mark Hamill has also played the Trickster on the current Flash series, and did the voice of the Trickster in the Justice League cartoon.

And in the Justice League Action short "Missing the Mark" he did the voices of the Trickster, the Joker, Swamp Thing, AND Mark Hamill.

Got 11 out of the 14. But I've always been more of a superhero comics kind of guy than a superhero TV show kind of guy since Hollywood nearly always takes "artistic license" and almost always messes the characters and stories up.
