Since the Super Friends are made up of members of the DC Universe (you know, Superman and Batman), and Spider-Man is a part of the Marvel Universe (hangin’ with the likes of Thor, Iron Man and Captain America), I doubt the Super Friends are even aware of Spider-Man's existence. So, what is wrong with your sentence? The problem here is clear: Whoever wrote it clearly has not read enough comic books.

The chief problem here is the fact that "green" and "Michigan" are mentioned within the same sentence. Isn't Michigan where all the old, colorless tires go to die?

As far as T-shirts, I know where to get a box of LA WEEKLY pirate shirts that somebody could doctor with TOSC logo

No hyphen in Spider-Man.

Not true. There's very much a hyphen in "Spider-Man."

The correct answer is that "logical" should be "logistical."

We'll try this again soon with an easier quiz. Looks like we'll have to lower the bar ...

While I do agree that "logistical" would make more sense in the sentence, I don't know if I agree that you could swap out "logical" for it and preserve the original meaning of the sentence. How am I supposed to know that Spider-Man is sane and able to reason effectively and may not indeed need some "logical" help from the Super Friends?

As I am a programmer and not even close to knowing anything about grammar, my question to you is does the word replacement change the original meaning and is the original wording wrong and if so, why?

Man, I have a horrible feeling I'm about to made to feel real dumb.

The problem here is that Greenville is neither troubled nor in need of peacekeeping, be it from fictional characters or otherwise. In fact, it's been more or less milk & honey there since John Green, who came from New York state in 1844, built a saw mill on the Flat River and a cabin nearby and became Greenville's first settler.

I believe Spider-man actuall did make it to super friends in a special crossover comic book -- too popular to deny. I think it's that it should be "logistical" help, not logical help.

Of course, I may be the only dumbass taking this question literally.

Hey, wait. I got the logistical thing before I saw the answer. I did, really.

"Super-Friends" is hyphenated. Marvel and DC Comics characters often made crossover appearances in their respective alternate universes.
