Warner Bros. Animation has just released a new DC Nation animated short clip, this time we get to see their take on the iconic silver age team, the Metal Men. The group is composed of advanced artificially intelligent robots created by Dr. Will Magnus. The six robots are named Gold, Iron, Lead, Mercury, Tin, and Platinum, who all bear personalities mirrored in their namesake metals.
As expected of a DC Nation short, Metal Men seems to be a slightly more humor-oriented take on the team, although it is worth noting that Platinum’s attraction to her creator is also part of the original franchise, with the robot believing that she was a real woman and harboring romantic feelings for her creator.
You can watch DC Nation this Saturday, August 10 at 10:00 a.m. ET/PT On Cartoon Network.
