Batman - Superman


The legendary "Man of Steel".

The timeless hero shines in his struggle for "Truth, Justice and the American Way." Set in present-day Metropolis against the backdrop of a bright, urban landscape, the ageless superhero combats sinister villains and rescues innocent victims in exciting new stories based on universal themes encompassing the time-honored traditions of the classic Superman legend.

Rocketed to earth by his parents Jor-El and Lara when a cataclysmic explosion obliterates their planet, Krypton, baby Kal-El is raised as Clark Kent by Jonathan and Martha Kent in Smallville, U.S.A. As a teenager, Clark discovers and hones his "super" powers, forges a close friendship with his female confidant

Lana Lang (who gradually becomes aware of his true identity), obtains a job at the Daily Planet and grows into a mild-mannered, yet hard-hitting crime reporter.

Clark's "mortal" life revolves around his work and friendships at the Daily Planet, including such renowned colleagues as Lois Lane, the savvy, quick-witted, imaginative and courageous ace reporter. Lane is quite skeptical of Superman's powers and is determined to uncover the mysterious legend. Rounding out Clark's Daily Planet "family" are: Perry White, the Daily Planet's managing editor, Jimmy Olsen, a budding young photographer and one of Clark's (as well as Superman's), most loyal pals, and Angela Chen, a stunningly beautiful gossip columnist for the newspaper as well as the "on-camera" hostess for "Metropolis Today."

True to the legend, if exposed to Kryptonite, Superman instantly weakens and prolonged exposure to it could, quite possibly, cause his death. Superman also has no power over magic -- he is susceptible to mystic spells like mortals. Kryptonite and magic aside, Superman is "equipped" to handle anything else. In addition to his extraordinary superpowers, this animated series outfits the "man of steel" with special "exoskeleton supersuits" which help him function in hazardous situations -- a space suit, allowing him to breathe in outer space and fly faster than the speed of light and an underwater suit for prolonged periods of time on the ocean floor.

Superman faces some of his most villainous foes ever in this series, including: Lex Luthor, Metropolis' megalomaniacial "ruler," and Superman's evil clone, Bizarro. Other antagonists are Jax-Ur and Mala who escaped from Krypton's Phantom Zone. A dimension for holding Krypton's worst criminals in a state between life and death. These adversaries have but one goal -- to eliminate Superman from the planet.

"Superman" is produced and animated by Warner Bros.


The Caped Crusader is back and cooler then ever.

When last we saw Robin, he and Batman were fighting tirelessly for justice in crime-ridden Gotham City. These days, however, things have changed. Dick Grayson (Robin) is no longer a boy, in fact, he's now a college graduate who has just returned from traveling the world, much like Bruce Wayne did years ago. Living abroad enlightened Grayson and enabled him to study various crime fighting techniques. When the time came to return to Gotham City, Grayson had to consider returning to his role as Robin. Ultimately, he decided that he had outgrown his position as Batman's sidekick and was ready to embark on his own crimefighting career as Nightwing. However, Nightwing (Grayson) can periodically be found teaming up with Batman, offering a few revolutionary crime fighting techniques of his own.

Knowing things wouldn't be the same without his trusty sidekick Robin, Batman befriends Tim Drake, an abandoned 13 year-old boy adopted by Bruce Wayne. Tim's real father is a small-time hood who stole money from the evil villain Two-Face and left town. When Tim becomes caught up in the war between Two-Face and his father (which culminates in Two-Face's attempt to kill Tim), Batman intervenes and rescues him. Knowing how hard it is growing up without parents, Batman takes Tim under his wing and the "new" Robin is born. Tim is a kid through and through, and it is his character's youthful energy which enlivens the new "Batman."

Viewers will see a lot more of Batgirl, as she's now a regular member of the "Batman" team. Recent college graduate Barbara Gordon leads a double life. By day she's the police commissioner's daughter who works for the Gotham City police department; by night she's Batgirl, battling the scum of the city. When Dick Grayson left Gotham City, Batman often called on Batgirl to assist him with special cases, granting her complete access to the Batcave and all of its technology. A quick study, Batgirl knows the Batcomputer inside-out, and even surpasses Batman, Robin and Nightwing in cyberspace expertise.

Together these heroes dedicate their lives to eliminate each and every lying, conniving and cheating criminal from the underbelly of Gotham City, fighting the odds and risking their lives in the pursuit of justice.

"Batman" is produced and animated by Warner Bros.
