I read your post, Fastback, and I understood what you meant. The cartoon brought in new fans of the JLA who never knew J'onn. Those fans were not familiar with him because he wasn't in the cartoon or the comics (Superfriends or JLA) at the time and therefore that "generation" of fans didn't miss him or think of him as being such an integral part of the team.

Thanks for the translation!
