Beginning June 15, 2002, DC Comics' superheroes will be fighting evil across the pond. Cartoon Network Europe has acquired the new Warner Bros. Animation series JUSTICE LEAGUE, which debuted in the U.S. on Cartoon Network in November 2001. An updated version of the SUPER FRIENDS series that aired from 1973-85, JUSTICE LEAGUE brings together DC Comics' squad of superheroes -- Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Hawkgirl and Martian Manhunter to battle supervillains, evil monsters and natural disasters. "By capturing the spirit of the original comic books, JUSTICE LEAGUE is a very exciting and well made show which will be an excellent addition to Cartoon Network's impressive roster of action adventure programming," said Finn Arnesen, vice president of programming, acquisitions and development for Cartoon Network, Europe. JUSTICE LEAGUE originated in 1940 as DC Comics' All-Star Comics title JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA, which ran for 11 years. DC revived the series in March 1960 as THE JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA, which continues to be one of DC's most popular titles.
