    Super Friends
Search for 'Super Friends' on Amazon

In comics, the Super Friends are a sub-set of the Earth-1 Justice League.

They operate out of two locations—the JLA satellite and the earthbound Hall of Justice. The Hall is explained to be a ground-based extension of the satellite.

More importantly, though, it's the campus of the Super-Hero Academy, of which Zan, Jayna, Marvin and Wendy were students. Robin was, in the parlance of the British educational system, the sort of "Head Boy". (Issue #1 makes it clear that Robin is not a member of the Justice League proper, but someone who has "helped out from time to time".)

Thus, while the cartoons may have implied that they were the "friends" of each other, the comic makes it clearer that they are the Justice League "friends" to young super-hero talent.

The comic states that Snapper Carr once was in the same program as Zan, Jayna, Wendy and Marvin, implying that the Super Friends, and the Hall of Justice, weren't new to the DCU at the outset of the comic.

An alternate form of address for a young Super Friend is "Junior Justice Leaguer".
