The Lord Of Middle Earth

Lord of the Rings Fan?
All that was missing was a good wizard. It was Lord of the Rings all the way, as the evil Mal Havoc forces trolls to dig in his mines. He turns the Superfriends, all save Gleek, into troll versions as well.
Wonder Woman and Batman flee with Gleek and the troll king, Balderscam, to retrieve the ring of Dondor, all that can be used to defeat Mal Havoc.
First they meet the living cave. Wonder Woman yanks out one stalactite tooth with her magic lasso, then all the "teeth" fall out and the cave is stopped.
Then the spider people. Wow, what a laugh they were. They were defeated by the friendly snails.
It was all done so dramatically you cannot laugh.
Then they get the ring from the chained dragon and Batman has his grandest moment (actually one of his grandest moments) as he challenges Mal Havoc to shoot at him with his 'dimestore magic' and inadvertantly frees the dragon.
And how about Gorca? I remembered his little bit of dialogue and can still recite it. He was the little informant of Mal Havoc's.
Batman would come to the wounded Balderscam's aid with a little pep speech as well, of course.
Then Gleek would be the one to save the day and rather heroically too, using that tail of his to put the ring on the statue, destroying Mal Havoc.
Alas, it was all a dream, the ONLY downfall to this story. Gleek dreamed it all, but then he would spy troll shadows running in the forest.
The dream bit was completely unnecessary.
