Thus us inspired by the DC miniseries Future Quest, and is supposed to be a more fleshed-out idea for that world.
What if there was a world were all the Hanna Barbara cartoons were real? This world would have counterparts of the Fantastic Four (from the 1967 series) and many dc heroes as well (from the Super Friends series). But it would also have many other heroes, such as Birdman, Birdboy, Space Ghost, the Impossibles, the Galaxy Trio, Blue Falcon, Mighty Mightor, Captain Planet, the Radical Squadron, the Drac Pack, Captain Caveman, Atom Ant, and (in later years) the Justice Friends and the Powerfpuff Girls. Inter-Nation Security is an international police organization which also co-ordinates the actions of many heroes (similar to SHIELD).
Some historic divergences which can be inferred from the cartoons. There was no Iranian Revolution (since we see the Shah of Persia in cartoons in the late 1970s), and no Chinese civil war (possibly, in this world, Sun Yat-sen accepted his countries call the become the first president of China, thus preventing Yuan Shikai from establishing a dictatorship). John F. Kennedy may not have been assassinated, since Cape Kennedy is still called Cape Canaveral in 1978. The Soviet Union did not fall until much later, if at all (since Comrade Red is Russia's representative on the Association of World Supermen in 1999, my guess is that he may have done like Superman from "red Son" and seized power when things started to fall apart in the early 1990s).
Technology is far more advanced than in our world, since the first moon base was established in 1973, the first manned mission to Mars was sent in 1978 (both from the Super Friends), and the internet was developed in the late 1960s (based on the Real Adventures of Johnny Quest).
Circa 2008, Mandark took over the world with his Neutronic Protocore, and probably killed many of the world's heroes. He was finally overthrown about 10 years later by Dexter, who then created a global technologic utopia. This is the sci-fi future of Sealab 2020. By the 2060s, this era is also called Dextopia, and the ageing Dexter is still honored as the greatest citizen on Earth, though due to his senility, he has little to do with running global affairs anymore. This is the era of the Jetsons. By the year 2200, technology seems to have leveled off, since the world of the Partridge family is not noticeably different from the world of the Jetsons.
