Question: Justice league heroes

Hi I bought a second hand copy of this game and it has no instructions. I have played a couple of levels, occasionally, when defeated, a foe will drop a little orb that looks like Saturn as well as the collection of little green orbs. The little Saturn orbs can be a few different colours and I don't seem to be able to pick them up or interact with them at all. Anyone know what they are for?
