In 1973, two publishers from yesteryear are brought to the forefront: Fawcett and Quality. The former, acquired a year before, is reintroduced with Shazam! (Volume 1), as a separate continuity that has been suspended in time for twenty years, while the latter is explained with Earth-X and the Freedom Fighters; the Quality heroes were previously part of Earth-Two and moved to continue the war on Earth-X.

Starting on September 8, ABC adds Super Friends to the Saturday morning line-up.
