Who are the Wonder Twins?
The Wonder Twins are named Zan and Jayna, and are a pair of aliens from the planet Exxor, who are effectively super
heroes in training. They also have a pet blue monkey, named Gleek, who is bright but troublesome (sounds sort of like Guy
Gardner, but not as violent). Zan, the boy twin, had the power to spontaneously change into any water based form, where Jayna
could become any animal. In many cases, these powers were pretty liberal, allowing things like, "Shape of the Sphinx!" or,
"Form of...an Ice Shovel!" The twins needed to touch hands, and shout "Wonder Twin Powers, Activate!" in order to use their
shape shifting powers...
As a point in fact, you have no Idea how often people shout that at me. However, I highly recommend that you try
it...its pretty satisfying, and you never know...
Anyway, to continue, Zan and Jayna also had the power to communicate
with each other telepathically. They didn't have to touch one another to do this, which is good, since its pretty limiting
to communicate telepathically with someone you could just talk to. The also carried their "Teen Trouble Alerts", which allowed
troubled teenagers the world over to contact them instantly. In other words, a super pager.
