    The characters were created by Norman Maurer, William Hanna and Joseph Barbera and made their debut in The World’s Greatest Super Friends in 1977. Zan and Jayna, the twins, are an extraterrestrial brother-sister duo. They can activate their powers by bumping fists and saying, “Wonder Twin powers, activate!” Zan’s ability is to become water in any state, while Jayna can become any animal she pleases. They are accompanied by their pet monkey Gleek. Gleek wears glasses and usually assists them in serving justice.
