This happened all the way back in 1978 when DC got along with ABC and released a series called Challenge of the Superfields. It only lasted for 16 episodes but featured almost all the important characters like Superman, Aquaman, Green Lantern and others. It featured the Legion of Doom which had all the enemies of the Justice League team.

She had the ability to absorb heat and convert it into energy blasts of really cold energy which can be used to freeze objects and enemies both.
He can be called a duplicate of Superman and has a backward S on his chest and his powers are very similar to that of Superman. Everything he does works out as a sort of gimmick and he is seen as an evil Superman.
While in the comics, he tried being the good guy, the animated series showed him as plain evil. He is susceptible to blue kyrptonite and isn’t as smart as Superman.
6. Gorilla Grodd
He’s an enlarged animal who is really intelligent and has numerous supergorilla abilities. He’s a genius with strength and can even control people’s minds via telekinesis. He’s also one of the deadliest enemies to be faced by Flash.
