Did the Justice League work for the Shah?

When I was a kid in Iran,  I loved watching the Superfriends/League of Justice cartoon on TV after school.  It was dubbed into Persian so flawlessly that I had no idea the characters were, well… ‘foreign.’  So when the superheros would be called to duty on an assignment, I assumed they were getting the call from the Shah.

An extra tidbit in my defense, notice that the Justice League building in the cartoon looked cartoonishly similar to the Iranian Senate building at the time, which I was used to seeing on the intro to the news at 6:00pm.

Who could have known?!
