As much as I despised the Wonder Twins at the time, I was able to tolorate them and they have developed a "nostalgic / fun" element since. Wendy and Marvin however; do not nor have they ever posessed any redeaming or endearing qualities whatsoever! LOL... ultimately I classify Marvin though as the most annoying of the two (3 counting the monkey).

Marvin was too "Shaggy-ish" for me. Wendy would have made a better Snapper Carr type character. Wonder what Wendy has been up to since her Super Friends days? I heard that she did some low budget independent films. Anyway, be cool if Alex Ross incorperates her into the Justice storyline, just as a fanboy lark.
Ok, the monkey thing drives me crazy. And the Wonder Twins are just plain annoying. However, I'm deal with the Twins just because they're so ridiculous, it's almost funny. There's a really great Family Guy skit that uses the Wonder Twins too. Very good stuff...

I would vote for them all if I could, but I am going with the wonder twins because they were featured the most, wendy and marvin are a close second. Why would they do this to us? I never understood the purpose of these characters? Did they think that us as kids would find them amusing and funny? I know as an 8 year old boy I HATED the wonder twins, marvin and wendy, and Gleek the wonder monkey.

In chronological order, the top of my hate list is Gleek. I hate that d- - - monkey with a fierce bloody passion. If I were a teen who just got into trouble and learned his lesson, the last thing I want to do is laugh at the antics of a stupid blue monkey. Second worst on my list is Wonder Dog. A Scooby Doo wannabe he is not! And I hated his charades for communication. I'm convinced the writers of that particular series were doped on drugs when they created Wonder Dog as well as Gleek. Next annoyance is Marvin or "Super Marv" He was like a five year old in a 15 year old's body and I could see why Wendy got so annoyed with him. Speaking of Wendy, she is an annoyance for merely being the teacher's pet and for being os self righteous with Marvin all the time. Not that Marvin didn't have it coming at times. The SuperFriends smile at her and shake their heads at Marvin. Regarding the Wonder Twins, Zan is really the annoying one with the lame water powers, but mostly he had a boastful ego and would always be made into an idiot by that bigger idiot Gleek. Jayna is actually a pretty good character if you get her by herself. Actually, I like the Wonder Twins otherwise. It seems that Hanna Barbera's idea for kid proteges for the SuperFriends were always, one boy, one girl, and one pet for comic relief that acted like a human sometimes. Rule of thumb. The girls were smart and the boys were egotistical or stupid or both. And the pets were supposed to be entertaining to little preschool kids and really annoy older viewers. And as for BatMite, not a character I find really neccessary for the show, but I was at least glad Filmation treated him as a character who was more of an annoyance and a pest to Batman and Robin as opposed to being a valued team player. That's my list of anoying side characters. Cheers
BATMITE!!!!!!!!! BATMITE!!!!!!!!! BATMITE!!!!!!!!! The most USELESS character ever in Batman history. He was so annoying. And the fact they dropped Alfred from the cartoon for this blasphemous abomination makes me even madder. Wendy, Marvin, and Wonder Dog were cool. They were ordinary people that were allowed to hang out with the Justice League. Who wouldnt want to do that ? The Wonder Twin were stupid yes, but they were still superheroes. And Gleek for being a stupid super powered monkey was kinda neat. But Batmite was just completely useless. If it wasnt for me being a complete batmark I wouldnt have picked up the newest dvd set with him in it. He was just so annoying and useless. And then that stupid supervillian of his, Zarbor, just had no place to be in Batman to. Why Batman didnt call in Dr Fate or John Constantine to exorcise this character out of their lives I really want to know.
