He only did it in season 2 (both of his appearances.) I know Space Ghost only shouted his name in the intro and outro, while Birdman and Black Vulcan did it in the actual episodes. However, by Challenge of the Super Friends, this trademark of BV was gone and replaced with his catchphrase "Great Lightning!" which he kept throughout his further appearances. Was it taking a toll on Buster Jones' lungs? Gary Owens and Keith Andes didn't mind doing it (although they seemed to have only recorded it once, judging by how it's the same soundbyte every episode in the latter's case, while you can hear the difference in Buster Jones' yells in the two episodes.) Or was it that Hanna-Barbera finally realized the trend of having their superheroes shout their names was dumb? I personally don't mind it, but it makes them look like carbon copies of one another.
