According to, Cartoon Network will premiere the “Justice League Action” animated series in the USA on December 16, 2016.

“Justice League Action” will debut in the U.S. with a 4-part special event titled “Shazam Slam” on Friday, December 16, with new episodes then airing on Saturday mornings starting December 24.

“In ‘Shazam Slam,’ the villainous Black Adam battles Batman on the Rock of Eternity and unleashes a horde of Djinn determined to turn the Earth back to its pre-human, volcanic state. Affected by the otherworldly powers of these primordial monsters, Batman becomes possessed and is turned into a giant flying Batmonster laying waste to the Hall of Justice, with only Superman capable of taking the fight to the Dark Knight. One by one, the Justice League – with the help of Shazam (voiced by Sean Astin) and The Wizard (voiced by Carl Reiner) – must hunt down and defeat each Djinn in order to yet again save the world from destruction.”

I was hyped to see Superman smackdown the Parasite, then Wonder Woman comes to his aid, before he ever needs it. Hopefully, not a sign of things to come.

I’ll watch it, but the art looks terrible, and it was like weren’t even trying make quality cartoon, or wanted to distance themselves so much from JLU or Avengers & The Ultimate Spider-Man that they decided to do the shoddiest work they could. Well at least it looks a little bit better than titans go.

Horrendous. Barf! A minor step up from Super friends. If I was 12 again I might be able to watch this.(might!)
