The Justice Friends
“The Justice Friends, three of Earth's mightiest heroes, joining forces under one roof... to face the challenge of everyday life!”
Opening quote

The Justice Friends is a back-up segment that airs between two Dexter's Laboratory shorts during the second half of the first season and two episodes of the second season.

Plot[]

The Justice Friends consists of Major Glory, The Infraggable Krunk, and Valhallen, who are all roommates living in an apartment complex called Muscular Arms. Most of the adventures of The Justice Friends deal with the three trying to balance out their superhero adventures while just trying to keep their composure having to adjust to their living arrangement. Most of these adventures play out like a sitcom along with a laugh track, used in a satirical manner.

Characters[]

Main Cast[]

  • Major Glory - The self-appointed leader of the Justice Friends, Major Glory is an overly patriotic and dramatic man. He is a perfectionist who wants things done the right way, though his allies' easygoing personalities often cause more harm than good.
  • Valhallen - The guitar-playing Viking God of Rock. He has long-hair and a surfer dude accent. Valhallen's source of divine power is his Ax, which he also uses as a method of getting around. Without his Ax, Valhallen is powerless.
  • Krunk - The muscular member of the Justice Friends, Krunk, despite his hulking size, has the behavior of a child, often leading to more trouble for both Major Glory and Valhallen. Despite his childlike behavior, Krunk is well-meaning.

Recurring Characters[]

  • Living Bullet - A man who, true to his name, moves at lightning-fast speeds.
