Out Today: “Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox” (7/30/2013)

It thrilled you in comic book form and now the long anticipated animated adaptation of “Flashpoint” is here and entitled “Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox”. It’s a straight to video release and you can learn more about it below the graphic.

Bluray - Justice League Flashpoint

Brief Premise (as found on Wikipedia): While visiting his mother’s grave, Barry Allen, known as the Flash, is alerted to a break-in by Captain Cold, Captain Boomerang, Heat Wave, Mirror Master, and Top at the Flash Museum. Defeating the rogues, he discovers that they have been hired by his arch-enemy Professor Zoom as part of a plan to destroy Central City. With the help of the Justice League, Barry foils Zoom’s plot, but Zoom’s taunts over the death of his mother still haunt Barry as he departs.

Airing Today: “Green Lantern: The Animated Series” (11/11/2011)

It might be National Metal Day for us diehards but for the animated series maniacs today is rather important because the “Green Lantern Animated Series” begins airing today as well on the Cartoon Network. It’s Developed by Bruce Timm, Giancarlo Volpe and Jim Krieg with Direction by Sam Liu, and Rick Morales. From the looks of GL in the banner below, you can tell that this will work with the same animation style as “Batman Adventures” and “The Adventures Of Superman’. I like that for consistency sake.

Banner - Green Lantern Animated

The series is computer generated which should be really cool to see on television and it follows the adventures of Green Lantern and Kilowog as they travel to the far ends of space and come into conflict with assorted lanterns across the spectrum. We’ll find Red, Orange, Blue and Yellow Lanterns coming into blows with our emerald hero. The cast is below.
