** Similarly, in the Brazilian dub, while the voices were consistent within a same season, they tended to change from season to season. The only voice actors to remain in the same characthers through the whole series (except for the 1973-74 season, but it was very apart from the rest, anyway) were Robin, voiced by Carlos Marques, and the female Superfriends– Ilka Pinheiro as Wonder Woman and Vera Miranda as Jayna.

** Indeed, according to former artist [[http://noblemania.blogspot.com/2011/07/super-70s-and-80s-super-friendsdarrell.html Darrell McNeil]], during pre-production, when the series was called ''Battle of the Superheroes'', Marvel's arch enemy Dr. Sivana was supposed to be the leader of the Legion of Doom, then called the League of Evil. Some other Marvel foes, plus Joker, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze and Penguin would've been the members. But due to cross-town rival Creator/{{Filmation}} making ''Shazam!'' and ''The New Adventures of Batman'' at the time, they couldn't be used, and we got the Legion of Doom as we know it.
