Green Lantern comes to television in an all-new CG animated action series from world-renowned producer, artist and animator Bruce Timm ("Batman: The Animated Series," "Justice League"). Based upon the DC Comics super hero, "Green Lantern: The Animated Series" follows Earth's Green Lantern, Hal Jordan, who is used to being in dangerous situations - but he's never faced anything like this! Set in the farthest reaches of deep space, the series finds Hal on the Guardian Frontier, where he must face down an invasion from the Red Lantern Corps. Powered by pure rage, the evil Red Lanterns have sworn to destroy the Green Lantern Corps and everything they stand for. Dispatched on the experimental spacecraft The Interceptor, Hal is soon joined by an all-new group of heroes on a mission to protect Guardian Space - and the Green Lantern Corps itself!
Kind of intense for Cartoon Network. Can you imagine the Super Friends with a villain actually killing a hero? Not saying it's a bad thing, just thinking about how much cartoons have changed since the days of the 70's when all violence was outlawed. I'm actually glad cartoon characters can actually hit each other again.
