Before he became a [[WesternAnimation/HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw defense lawyer]], Birdman was the headliner of ''Birdman and the Galaxy Trio'', part of Creator/HannaBarbera's brief SuperHero cycle in the mid-1960s.

The Galaxy Trio, stars of the backup segment, consisted of Vapor Man, who could turn his body into any kind of gas; Meteor Man, who could enlarge his fists or any other part of his body, and Gravity Girl, who could make people and objects seem lighter or heavier. Together, TheyFightCrime and patrol space in their cruiser, Condor One, maintaining order working for their superior, the Chief of the Galactic Patrol law enforcement agency.
