Justice League Unlimited Bounds Into Boomerang Action June 3
Created 06/01/2007 - 00:00
JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED comes to Boomerang with the world's greatest superheroes, led by Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and the Green Lantern, as they enlist some help from their friends to take a more aggressive approach to thwarting alien invasions, criminal threats and global conspiracies. The 30-minute action-adventure series, produced by Bruce Timm, James Tucker, Linda Steiner and Dwayne McDuffie at Warner Bros. Animation, will premiere on Boomerang starting Sunday, June 3, 2007, at 11:00 pm (ET). JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED, a direct spin-off of the extremely popular JUSTICE LEAGUE animated series that ran on Cartoon Network from 2001-2004, will anchor Boomerang's "Boomeraction" franchise, which features classic action-adventure series, such as Superfriends and SWAT KATS.
As the season begins, Superman addresses an awesome assemblage of heroes. He and the rest of the Justice League, which had included the Flash, Green Lantern, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter and Hawkgirl, have come to realize that the universe might be best served by enlarging the group, being more proactive and coordinating more effectively. The group, minus Hawkgirl, assembles aboard the Watchtower, the orbiting space station. Martian Manhunter monitors goings-on across the galaxies and assigns teams of superheroes to tackle problems.
The new roster of JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED includes some of the most famous superheroes around, like Green Arrow, Supergirl and Captain Atom. Other members may be a bit more obscure. Hawk & Dove are siblings with a very different take on conflict resolution techniques. B'wana Beast is a jungle man-turned-superhero, a combination of the Bronx and the Bronx Zoo. The Atom is the world's smallest superhero. Booster Gold, a glory-seeking hero from the future, joins the Justice League, as does Zatanna, a beautiful magician and sorceress. While there is a universe filled with new threats, a few classic villains return, including Lex Luthor, Soloman Grundy and Mongul.
JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED will air Sunday-Saturday at 11:00 pm (ET). Initial episodes to be aired in the first week include the following:
