DC Nation 4/28/12: Green Lantern, Young Justice and S.B.F.F.

Now you have a reason to wake up early on Saturdays.

It's almost the weekend so that means it's time to make sure your alarm is set for Saturday morning at 10: a.m. ET/PT. DC Nation airs on Cartoon Network each Saturday morning, delivering episodes of Green Lantern: The Animated Series, Young Justice as well various other DC characters in the animated shorts during each episode.

Here's what you can expect.

Green Lantern: The Animated Series

"...In Love and War"

The Green Lanterns save a different type of Lantern from an invading space monster. Grateful for their rescue, the Star Sapphires, whose power comes from love, invite everyone to their homeworld. It turns out, however, that the whole thing was a set-up to drain the Lanterns’ power rings by encasing them in crystals.

Here's a couple clips courtesy of Warner Bros. Televison and Cartoon Network along with some images.

== TEASER ==

Young Justice

"Happy New Year"

The Team takes on the intergalactic bounty hunter Lobo… as a precursor to an alien INVASION!

Hmm...too bad Lobo isn't in this clip that was provided.

At least we get a glimpse at Lobo below.



That stands for Super Best Friends Forever, in case you were wondering.

@Daywing: I was thinking the same thing. I hope they didn't change the voice actress

Huzzah for Season 2 of Young Justice

Posted by redbird3rdboywonder

Love Young Justice. Can't wait for both shows.

Posted by Lvenger

Season 2 so soon? There have been long breaks between episodes admittedly.

Posted by VioletPhoenix

AW YEAH Season 2 of Young Justice!! And it only took a year and a half.

Weirdly enough I find the caricatures in SBFF's charming.

Posted by Ganthetsward20

Super psyched about season 2 of young justice!! This S.B.F.F. looks hilarious btw.

Posted by deadpool25mm

Cant wait for these ep's!!

Posted by Bestostero

cannot wait for Young Justice....!

Posted by Primmaster64

I hope that Nightwing thing is time travel. It would suck so much that Superboy didn't grow up.

Carol becomes Star Sapphire!!!!! I am so watching this episode!! That clip just made me more excited for Green Lantern than for Young Justice!

Posted by monkeyonurback_

i seriously think they should make a marvel family / plastic man half hour show and a flash / green lantern half hour show..neither of them have to be taken that seriously given they'd only be 10mins long but i think that'd be soo cool to watch

Posted by RedOwl_1

BLUE BEETLE, F*CK YEAH!!! (Looks like I can't stop saying it)

And I think Supergirl is on trouble :P

PD: Is Green Lantern any good? The episode looks TOTALLY COOL (till I still don't liking animation)

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

10AM isn't exactly early, but yes, DC Nation is BOSS right now!

Posted by Miss_Garrick

I'm not a huge Cassie fan, but I'm happy they have her wearing her best costume.


Blue Beetle better be voiced by Will Freidle again!

I'm happy that the new gen of kids get to enjoy characters I love when I was a kid.

Posted by KidSupreme

big fan of all the shows

Posted by sethysquare
Star Sapphires!!!!!! Lobo!!!! Cassie!!!!!
Posted by WolfMonkey

sooo... wondergirl. and superboy and MM are together... love triangle?

Posted by WolfMonkey

@Primmaster64: nightwing? where'd you see him?

Edited by Zeeguy91

@RedOwl_1: Yeah, I'd say Green Lantern is a really good show. I'm not a fan of the animation either, but the story is awesome. I've bought every episode on iTunes so far. Why don't you watch this week's episode to see for yourself and if you like it, start watching the older episodes.

Posted by Zeeguy91

@Miss_Garrick: Well, that is, assuming that Superboy and Miss Martian are even still together, given that there's supposed to be a major time skip. I think its supposed to be about 3-5 years??? I may be mistaken on that.

And....YES, I would love if Will Freidle voiced Blue Beetle again, or maybe even Lagoon Boy. I loved Boy Meets World as a kid!!

Posted by SmoothJammin

Megan radio's the "Delta" Squad... does that mean there's going to be an Alpha Squad, and therefore 2 teams?(A-tier and B-tier?)

Posted by KnightRise

@WolfMonkey: i think he's refering to the episode where black canary is conseling robin and he says he doesnt want to grow up to be batman, and says something along the lines of forging his own identity. I for one took it as a hint toward nightwing

Posted by KnightRise

@Primmaster64: like a young justice show version of titans tommorrow? thatd be dope

Posted by GBrutality

so, wonder girl is apart of the team now too? cool.

Posted by EscGamer

honestly i was hoping for donna troy instead of cassie but hey it works

Posted by Mrakbarman

Yay! Love lobo! ( btw is he having the same voice actor in Superman TAS)

Posted by thebluedragon07

Freaking finally they add in Wonder Girl, but after noticing they are adding in Blue Beetle sweet!

Posted by Blizaga101

Blue beetle looks pretty epic in this and can't wait to see wonder girl

Posted by charlieboy

yay!!! wonder girl!!!

Posted by Eyz

Awesome, so much quality in DC cartoons, that's what you got from having Warner Bros animation working with ya :P

Posted by doomsilver

Can't wait for yj!

Posted by GothamRed

so they're making up for for the hundreds of hiatuses that they had by have no grace period between season 1 and 2 of the show

Posted by kamionero

I wonder if Young Justice is gonna mention Slobo...

I wonder if Cassie, Blue Beetle and Lagoon Boy (Im assuming thats him) are permanent additions to the roster or maybe they will make cameos... and I wonder if the entire team stayed. I haven't seen Artemis, Rocket, Aqualad or Zatanna in any of season 2 promotional material.

@WolfMonkey: @KnightRise: here

Awesome! I love DC nation and I can't wait for the next episode of Young Justice. New members and everyone else is probably an adult now meaning Dick is Nightwing, and Wally could be Flash now. Best DC show yet! And Green Lantern is awesome too!

Posted by Zeeguy91

@FoxCircuit101: I don't think Wally's gonna be Flash, given that Barry is still Flash in the comics presently. If they make him Flash, that means that they either killed off Barry or retired him. I don't see either of those things happening. He may still have graduated out if his Kid Flash mantle, but I don't expect him to be the Flash.
