While this is Garth's live-action screen debut, some fans may remember enjoying his first television appearance all the way back in 1967's animateed 'The Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure.'

He would eventually step out from the shadow of his mentor to become his own hero as a Titan along with many other former sidekicks."
