Marvin 2

Marvin White, aka "Super Marv" was a Junior SuperFriend. His pet and sidekick was Wonder Dog, and his best friend was Wendy.

Although somewhat bumbling at times,[1] Marvin's cleverness and resourcefulness made him invaluable to the other SuperFriends.[2]

He was always dressed with a cape and a big letter "M" on his chest.

Continuity from SuperFriends Comic Book

Marvin was the son of Diana Prince White, the nurse whose name Wonder Woman took when she came to Man's World; and Daniel White.[3]

In 1977, after several years as a Junior SuperFriends Member, Marvin goes on to Ivy University, where fellow superhero Ray Palmer worked as a professor.[4]

A few years later, he returned with Wendy to aid the new Junior SuperFriends, the Wonder Twins, posing as Zan's and Jayna's human disguises, "John" and "Joanna", to fool a criminal who had deduced the Wonder Twins' and Batman's secret identities.[5]

Later Years

In his later years, Marvin's superhero days are apparently far behind him. As he now began to put on some pounds, and he grew a goatee and joined a band with Wendy, and signed on to a major record label. He doesn't envy the Wonder Twins of their fame in the Justice League of America, and he considers his departure from the Superfriends as a blessing, because now he can focus on his musical career with his band.

  • Detective: Marvin has some detective skills. This comes as no surprise, as his father, Daniel White was a detective who trained Batman in the art of criminal detection. Marvin has cited Sherlock Holmes as an inspiration for his detective work.[6]
  • Wrestling: Marvin was seen wrestling Superman on one occasion, although Superman was letting him win. Nevertheless, it appeared that he was possibly skilled at it.
  • Music: Marvin has a passion and talent for music. Years after their time with the Super Friends, he told Zan and Jayna that he and Wendy's band had just signed on to a major label.
