DC Nation 4/21/12: New Green Lantern, Young Justice, Teen Titans and Plastic Man

In case you needed a reason to wake up early on Saturday mornings.

Saturday Morning Cartoons should be full of fun and excitement. That's what DC Nation has been doing. During the hour long block, you get new episodes of Green Lantern: The Animated Series, Young Justice and some DC shorts. Here's what you can expect this week.

Green Lantern: The Animated Series

"Fear Itself"

With supplies running low, Hal and Kilowog search an uncharted planet for food and find themselves each stranded on different sides of the two warring species that live here. Meanwhile, Razer must recharge his power ring.

Here's a clip and some images courtesy of Cartoon Network and Warner Bros. Television.

== TEASER ==

Young Justice

"Auld Acquaintances"

The team finally learns the identity of the traitor in their midst, forcing a battle against an enemy more dangerous than any they’ve ever faced before!

Teen Titans

"Turn Back the Clock"

Plastic Man

"Boobtube"

YJ is on every Saturday at 10:30am and that's Zatanna with short (her hair long, you just can't tell from that angle), black hair, not Artemis.

You could be thinking of rocket, she's the newest team member.

Already saw who the traitor on Young Justice is

At first it seems like it's Superboy and then Artemis too... then even Miss Martian... but in the end it turns out to be Roy also known as Arsenal or Red Arrow

Looks cool, but I'll probably sleep in.

@kingjoeg: He was mentioned in the first issue of Justice League international as a possible candidate for the team, but beyond that i don't know if anything more's been mentioned about our plasticy friend.
 
Plus i had to lol at going all 90's.

Never tough I'll say this but, CGI or not, green lantern is better than I expected, me and my lil sister watch it everytime

I'm sad that I haven't gotten more of an opportunity to watch the DC Nation block; partially because I don't know when the heck it's on.

I really want to follow Young Justice, I just have missed so much at this point that I'm daunted by it.

Edited by Herokiller12344

I already have a reason to wake up early on Saturdays. If you catch my drift.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

I keep forgetting to see this. I really need a DVR to capture this for me so I can see it at my leisure :(

DC Nation starts every Saturday at 10:00am -11:00am.

Give us Teen Titans back full time! These clips are cute but the real deal it better. Young Justice and Green Lantern majorly suck.

I love that Tom Kenny was able to come back as Plastic Man.

Ah~ the nostalgia. I remember playing a Cartoon Networks game during third grade, where you have to fight against Mad Mod and his weird robot soldiers. Good times, good times..

Posted by doomsilver

just seen the young justice and green lantern and they were awesome and seen the clips for the new season and wonder girl is on it robin has a new costume and it looks awesome

Posted by Hivemind

I really like Young Justice! Green Lantern is terrible. The shorts are annoying. I hope they can get some more quality cartoons. I am not even going to give the new Batman a chance, from what I have seen of it.

Posted by Bestostero

Young Justice was AMAZING today! :D

Posted by lightfright12

"Seriously? are you kidding me!" Love stars reaction to her 80's costume, not to mention covering herself with her hair.

Love DC nation! I'll be honest i was a bit sceptical at first when i saw the advertisements, especially for the Green Lantern show, but as my boys & I watched the first episodes I became hooked. The GL show, i sort of found the animation style a little clunky at first, but I found that i enjoyed the characters more, making me feel like I was watching a batman animated/justice league unlimited but in CG. As for Young justice, the animation is awesome! the characters seem to be true to their what I have read in the comics & find myself more & more interested in the Teen Titans, a title I have never fully embraced before, all due to the animation & story lines. if you can't get up, use your dvr, you won't regret it. It will bring you back to the days when saturday mornings were sacred.

Expand the block, add a half or full hour of old DC programing (anything from Justice League Unlimited to Superfriends) and you have the ultimate block on TV. So says this quirky character.

Saturday and Sunday mornings are BACK!!! Loving Young Justice and Avengers. Liking Green Lantern. Ultimate Spider-Man is growing on me. The only thing I don't like is the Superman of Japan shorts and the Plastic Man shorts. Super excited for the Hulk toon, not so much for Beware of the Batman.

does anyone know the characters with robin the toy wonder (aka robin 1000000) at the end?

Posted by TheDarkHood

I enjoyed all the Dc comics this week the only shorts i hate are the british clay made ones and it depends on the episode of GL and young justice was AWESOME how the face off against their mentors/family members and how superman talks to superboy

Posted by Eyz

I've been personally enyjoing the DC Nation shorts a lot more than the actual shows, personally :P

My question is, will they be released on DVD or Bluray at some point? I'd love to be able to watch all the sorts of a character or another back to back, later on...
