Easily a favorite of mine.

Batman Beyond and Justice League had pretty good intros. Batman Beyond was even fairly unique.

Wow. Never heard that before, but it's pretty great.

What's funny is I think to this day most never even got the parallel Filmation nods.

Not a part of the intro, but I'll add Filmation's Batman.

(sadly they couldn't add him or Wonder Woman at the time as they were licensed for live action shows.Batman 66-67 and look for the equally camp 67 Wonder Woman pilot)

I don't know, could be a track circulating among animators? They both debuted September 9, 1967.
LOL! Do you have a link to the comparable Spider-Man track? Not the classic intro.

Reference point would be in the episode 'Horn of the Rhino' episode, that theme that plays in the airport scene.

LOL Great call, they do sound similar.
Man that incidental Spidey music brings me back. Although I think it's a pretty generic coincidence.

Damn I love that show! Don't know why the youtube links don't work on it here, but when the Rhino grins LOL!
Then breaks through the fuel truck! And the whole football back and forth with the top-secret luggage at the airport, pure joy!

Came in to say Robotech. Best music of any animated show ever, makes it that much more enjoyable.

Also,



And I quite enjoy the DBS Tournament of Power Intro:
