Marvel powers Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes with super voice talent

Since Disney took ownership of Marvel, their universe has not only expanded with superheroes, it’s exploded! This fall, the pair hope to showcase that collection in their latest animated adventure, Avengers Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. The toon, set to air on Disney XD, features a wide cast of famous heroes and villains, but is also loaded with voice talent familiar with the comic book world. Amongst a large collection of stars, the toon will feature the sounds of Kevin Conroy (Batman from Batman: the Animated Series, Justice League, and Justice League Unlimited), Clancy Brown (Lex Luthor from Superman: The Animated Series, Justice League, and Justice League Unlimited), and Ron Perlman (Hellboy from the motion picture films as well as the animated toons). More voices, and guest stars, will be announced in the coming days, and ToonBarn will be there to share the info!

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.

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!

The evil pair plans to usurp the magic of Shazam, which gives Billy his power — but not if Batman and Captain Marvel have anything to say about it!
