Superfriends Wendy and Marvin by BillWalko Superfriends Wendy and Marvin by BillWalko
Wendy & Marvin: "Mucking Up Monitor Duty"
On television, they were two junior Superfriends-in-training. In the comics, they were two super-smart siblings that took care of Titans Tower. In both incarnations, Marvin's goofball antics were balanced by Wendy's resourcefulness. Here they are with some modernized design tweaks... but some things never change. Wendy walks Wonder Dog for five minutes and Marvin mucks up Monitor Duty!

In the original "Super Friends" Wendy and Marvin are not siblings -- their post-Crisis counterparts were, the twin children the Noah Kuttler, aka. the villain "Calculator" -- but part of the original Silver Age that was the "next generation" to the original Golden Age.

Marvin WHITE is the son of US Army munitions engineer Dan White and his wife, former Army nurse Diana Prince -- the same Diana Prince who sold her identity to the Golden-Age Wonder Woman. Strange that Marvin has brown hair, since his mother's hair was black and his father's was red.

Wendy Harris is the niece of Harvey Harris, one of Bruce Wayne's tutors before he became Batman -- as well as one of the few people who guessed the Dark Knight's true identity. She is also the Silver-Age counterpart of the Golden-Age "Wendi Harris", who later married Rex Tyler, the Golden-Age Hourman.

"Wonder Dog" was owned by Marvin, obviously named because of his Wonder Woman obsession. His post-Crisis incarnation was a demonic shape-shifter unknowingly adopted by the Teen Titans, who killed Marvin and mauled Wendy -- rendered paraplegic, she became Barbara "Oracle" Gordon's sidekick "Proxy".

Welp, it's still better than the second-to-last attempt to include Wendy and Marvin (the most recent attempt has W&M as high-school students on Young Justice, who act as friends for Miss Martian and Superboy. The second most recent attempt had Wonder Dog turn into a giant monster, kill Marvin, and leave Wendy parapalegic). Fortunately, their appearance on Young Justice seems to still be fine, and I think that they should turn out alright.

Hey, you know they're in the Young Justice cartoon? The most recent ep that's on line, but hasn't aired on TV yet.

Alright, the toony type art here is nicely done, however I'm not used to seeing these characters in highly toony art. The way they were normally drawn for the show had some portions of tooniness but only an accent, kinda like scooby doo, so mostly realistic and comic book.

But aside from that, this dam picture is brilliant!!!!! I totally love it! Thanks for treating it with respect and true tribute, you really capture their characterization. Superfriends forever, baby!
