Krypto The Superdog (2005 - 2006)

CLASSIC COMIC PEDIGREE Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a...dog! "Krypto the Superdog" chronicles the comedic canine adventures of Metropolis' super dog. As a puppy, Krypto was a test pilot on the planet Krypton. After Jor-El, Superman's father, launches Krypto into space, something goes wrong, and Krypto goes into suspended animation--headed straight for Earth! By the time he arrives, Krypto's a full-grown yet fun-loving dog, looking for a friend and a new family. Luckily, he meets Kevin Whitney, who is new to Metropolis and could use a pal too. Kevin's also the only human who can have a conversation with Krypto, thanks to a special intergalactic communicator that Krypto brought with him. Endowed with an awesome array of superpowers--from heat vision to superior strength to flying--Krypto partners with Kevin in a never-ending crusade to fight the evil forces that threaten the safety and well-being of both humans and animals in Metropolis. So begins the surprising story of a boy and his dog...or is it the story of a dog and his boy? In this fantastical universe filled with a kinetic sense of wonder and playfulness, a dog can bury a bone on the moon, and a game of fetch can span the galaxy. It's a colorful cosmic world in which weird techno gadgets fall into the hands of toddlers, where growth formulas accidentally create monster caterpillars, and where selfless hounds patrol the solar system for signs of trouble from villains intent on taking over the planet! Other crime-fighting comrades: Andrea Sussman, Kevin's know-it-all neighbor; Streaky, Andrea's smart-aleck cat who gains super powers; Ace the Bathound, Batman's canine who teams up with Krypto; The Dog Star Patrol, members of a larger organization of canines that patrols the cosmos.

Justice League Unlimited (2004 - 2006)

In a world of extraterrestrial invasions, powerful sorcerers, vast shadowy conspiracies and ancient gods, the galaxy's most powerful superheroes return to battle the allied villains and criminal plots that endanger the universe. Two years ago, the world's greatest heroes banded together as the Justice League and dedicated themselves to battling threats too great for any single hero to handle. Since then, they've saved the world countless times from unimaginable dangers. But the price has been high. With their ranks diminished after fighting off an alien invasion and with new dangers arising at an ever-increasing pace, the remaining Justice League crime fighters realize that protecting the entire world is going to take more technology and manpower than they have at hand. A lot more. These heroes come home to roost in their high-tech Watchtower, sporting space-based energy weapons and a powered-up fleet of Javelin spaceships. The team members tap innovative matter-transporters that zip them from one location to another in a flash. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern continue to lead the universe's most powerful superheroes, including such well-known defenders as Supergirl, Green Arrow and the Atom as well as Booster Gold, Hawk & Dove, Elongated Man, Mister Miracle, Big Barda and Zatanna. These fearless fighters and many others are the Justice League Unlimited.
