Synopsis for "Universe of Evil"
As Superman attempts to stop an erupting volcano, he finds himself mysteriously transported into an alternate universe where its counterparts of the Super Friends (called the Super Enemies) are evil, while its Superman deals with the Super Friends in their own universe. Fleeing from both the Super Enemies and from the authorities armed with Kryptonite weapons, the Super Friends Superman gets help from a professor at Metropolis University who gives him an anti-matter flask that would help him return to his own universe if he gets to the exact spot where he had entered the Super Enemies' universe. As Superman reaches the spot, he opens the flask and causes himself and his Super Enemies counterpart to switch places and return back to their respective universes.
- No notes.
- Probably the only Super Friends episode that features a group of villains similar to the Pre-Crisis Earth-Three's Crime Syndicate though they are in an Earth-148 like vein.
- Evil Wonder Twins also appear in this episode, but they don't have any lines, and are only seen in shadow in the darkened 'Hall of Evil'. However, evil Gleek does have a significant contribution to the plot.
- A close up reveals the 'Hall of Evil' has the devil's face at the top of the arch.
- Police forces in this universe are equipped with Kryptonite lasers to defend themselves against evil Superman.
- The Super Enemies also have their own Kryptonite lasers, presumably to guard against evil Superman turning against them.
- There are no references to any counterparts of the Legion of Doom existing in the Universe of Evil. However, given that normally heroic characters are evil in this universe, it is possible that there is a Legion of Good as well (similar to the Justice Underground from the Antimatter Universe). It is also possible given how ruthless the Super Enemies are that anyone who tried to oppose them was killed off.
