Plastic Man was the other hero to get a big break on the opening morning of DC Nation in a comedic and fast-paced short. I am not always a big fan of puns, but they were used well here to drive PM's shape-shifting. Also, any day Shaggy shows up is a good day. This may not have been drop dead funny, but it was 60 seconds well spent and a good step in redeeming the character from his tragic failure to land his own series a few years earlier - even if the energy was toned down a tad from that effort.

Also known as Madame Hydra, Viper is one of the leading ladies of evil Marvel organizations. First appearing in 1969's Captain America #110, Viper has also had tangles with the mutant known as Logan and is therefore slated to appear in next years The Wolverine. Because of licensing issues (Marvel retains the rights to Hydra) this Viper will be named Victoria as opposed to the original name Ophelia. But this will not be Vipers first onscreen appearance.
Most notably, this episode introduced the world to Black Vulcan, the first of the characters created to give diversity to the Super Friends lineup. I have to say, BV knew how to travel in style. He transformed into a lightning bolt leaving Aquaman to travel via jet ski.

Although I prefer the Joker's disappearing pencil trick, Wonder Woman had a trick of her own up her sleeve- well, not up her sleeve exactly, since she doesn't actually have sleeves, but hidden somewhere under her costume. I not only remember this segment from when I was a kid, I think I even tried this trick, but as a child I lacked Wonder Woman's showmanship. I will give this a favorable nod over the de-coder segments for sure.
