Robot Chicken DC Comics Special DVD Preview

Robot Chicken DC Comics Special Blu-Ray/DVD Releases on Tuesday, July 9, 2013

The first thing you notice when you watch the Robot Chicken DC Comics Special DVD is the menu has the original theme from CHALLENGE OF THE SUPERFRIENDS (debut: Sept. 9, 1978) playing in a loop, which was the first time the Legion of Doom was introduced in the Saturday Morning Cartoons we all loved as kids. If you didn’t have the chance to see the RCDC Special when it debuted on Adult Swim last September, the menu immediately identifies which version of the JLA/Superfriends they are lampooning on the DVD. Thank GOD! Thankfully, we weren’t put through the ringer with Marvin, Wendy, Wonderdog, the Wonder Twins or Gleek. In “Challenge of the Superfriends”, we weren’t distracted by lame characters thrown in for comic relief, and we were able to focus on the fact that Robin and Aquaman really don’t contribute a whole lot to the Justice League’s successes.

Injustice: Gods Among Us recently stopped posting videos of playable characters and went ahead with a story trailer, which provides the reason why all of these heroes and villains are at each other’s throats. People naturally assumed that we’ve already seen the last of the roster, but lo and behold: a new trailer has been released revealing a new character – Aquaman.

Greatest TV Cartoon Theme Songs #6: Super Friends

Greatest TV Cartoon Theme Songs #6: Super Friends

Ahhh! Saturday Mornings with Cereal and Super Friends. This made for a perfect combination, even if the show wasn’t very good. The Theme song was very good. The Super Friends Theme starts out with a type of roll call as a strong beat is placed. The images shown are of each character highlighted in the middle, then placed into their spot under the Super Friends Marquee. It then introduces each of the 4 main Superheroes, showing them in action, including the 3 Junior Superheroes, who are really just super sleuths. Narrating this theme with a powerful and effective voice is Ted Knight, who also did narrating duties for the show as well.

DC Comics relaunches the DC Universe, Justice League

They’re still Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman… but something is different. Actually, many things are different! In a few months time, DC Comics will be recreating their entire comic book universe; particularly close to the launch of the upcoming Green Lantern film, animated DVD, and upcoming cartoon series! In the process, DC is promising changes that range from minor tweaks to vast differences, and hopefully all dubbed as “positive” — but we’ll be the judge of that! DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. will continue to reveal more information on how these changes will impact the comic books, movies, shows, and cartoons we’ve come to know and love over the years, but in the meantime, they’ve offered a quick look at a reworked Justice League cover, which will pair author Geoff Johns and artist Jim Lee. Check it out!

In Young Justice, being a teenager means proving yourself over and over — to peers, parents, teachers, mentors and, ultimately, to yourself. But what if you’re not just a normal teenager? What if you’re a teenage super hero? How much harder will it be to prove yourself in a world of super powers, super villains and super secrets? Are you ready to come of age in such a world? Are you ready for life or death rites of passage? Are you ready to join the ranks of the great heroes and prove you’re worthy of the Justice League? That’s exactly what the members of Young Justice — Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis — will found out … whether they have what it takes to be a proven hero. It all starts tonight, January 7th, at 7pm on Cartoon Network!

At 7pm on January 7th, the CN will premiere Young Justice, a toon featuring the younger version of the Justice League. The animated series stars Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, and other junior-level heroes (all of whom were formally trapped in the shadow of their mentors, Batman, Superman, Flash, Wonder Woman, etc.) now leading their own adventures.

Batman The Brave and the Bold Plague of the Prototypes tonight on Cartoon Network

Batman The Brave and the Bold Plague of the Prototypes tonight on Cartoon Network

As awesome as the guy is, Batman can’t do everything himself. Sometimes, there’s a job that calls for Robin, Blue Beetle, Green Arrow, Aquaman, or any other superhero ready and willing to lend a helping hand. And if there aren’t any around, Batman will just make them! On tonight’s episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold, we get to see why that’s a great thing, as well as why it could be a dangerous thing, as Cartoon Network presents Plague of the Prototypes. In the toon, the Dark Knight goes toe to toe with Black Mask, whose goon Taboo has hijacked one of the Bat-Robots and turned them against the Caped Crusader. Now Batman, using experiences gained from his ally Sgt. Rock, must revive his beta test robot named Proto to save the day. Check out the following clip, then be sure to TOON in tonight at 7:30pm!

Cartoon Network debuts The Siege of Starro, part two, on Batman the Brave and the Bold

Oh, hey, um, Aquaman? You got something on your face there, pal. Gross. I guess it’s not too fun to be taken over by a mind-stealing race of alien star fish, especially when they slime all over your cheeks like that. Thus is the constant battle DC Comics Super Heroes must face in Cartoon Network’s Batman: The Brave and The Bold. Last week, we got part one of “The Siege of Starro!” and now Cartoon Network delivers the second half, hitting your tube this Friday, September 24th, at 7:30pm. Star Conqueror may be defeated, but Faceless Hunter is not! The alien warrior manipulates B’Wana Beast, forcing him to combine the tiny starros into one massive beast he plans to use to destroy the planet! But Batman has his own back-up — the Metal Men! Take a look at some screens and a preview clip!

Warner Bros.’ Young Justice brings DC Comics to Cartoon Network

Young Justice Group

There’s been a number of super hero related toons over the years, and lately it seems like more and more of the comic book flock are heading to the animated world. Young Justice made it’s animated debut at this year’s Comic-Con 2010, and the Warner Bros. toon is sure to shake up the ground of Cartoon Network when it starts up this fall. Teenage heroes like Robin, Superboy, Kid Flash, Miss Martian, Artemis, and Aqualad fill out the Young Justice roster, though producers claim that wont necessarily be the same lineup at the end of the year; supposedly, some will be cut, some new ones will be added, and some will have lost the fight against evil. Take a sneak peek look at some of the artwork and renders that we’ll be privy to soon enough

Warner Bros. features Young Justice footage at Comic-Con 2010

Comic-Con does comic books and super hero related events like E3 does video games: they cover all the great new and upcoming items and make us nuts while we sit home and wait for them. This year’s con, Comic-Con 2010, is no different, as Warner Bros. teams with Cartoon Network to tease the upcoming animated series Young Justice. We first got wind of the show a few months ago, but can now start to see the toon in motion, with special sneak peeks from the Con. In it, we see Robin, Superboy, Kid Flash, Miss Martian, Artemis, and Aqualad, protegees of the Justice League heroes like Batman, Superman, Flash, Martian Manhunter, Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, and Aquaman. Brandon Vietti and Greg Weisman are responsible for bringing us the series, which should hit our TVs this November. Take a look at the teaser trailer!
