Injoke: Tye Longshadow appears to be a younger version of Apache Chief, a hero created specifically for the Challenge of the SuperFriends animated series (1978). The character was voiced by Michael Rye and had the ability to grow to giant by uttering the Apache phrase, "Eh-neeek-chock" ("big man"). The last name "longshadow" is another injoke, a reference to a character named "Long Shadow" who appeared in the Justice League Unlimited episode "Ultimatum." That character was voiced by Gregg Rainwater, who also voices Tye Longshadow here, and was also a homage to Apache Chief.
