One thing these movies all have in common is that they are all based on big name comic book titles. However, sooner or later, we’re going to run out of A-list comic characters and when that happens expect to see some real stinkers get released.
That’s when I predict we’ll finally get a movie featuring the Wonder Twins, the plucky alien twins with the blue monkey sidekick.
Their costumes were just as lame as their powers. Jayna (the girl) could turn into any animal and Zan (the boy) could turn into any form of H2O. This typically meant that whenever the Legion of Doom tried to take over the world (again) Jayna would turn into a pelican and Zan would turn into water and fill up her beak or something similar.
How this was supposed to fight evil, I’ll never understand.

The Wonder Twins originated on DC Comics‘ cartoon series the Super Friends. which spawned all sorts of racist comic creations (hey, it was the 70s) including Black Vulcan, Apache Chief, El Dorado, and Samurai.
When the inevitable comic book movie race to the bottom occurs, I’m sure the Twins will be joined by their fellow Super Friends.
