'Spider-Man', 'Batman', 'Legion' - Kids WB! has too many heroes!

By Rob M. Worley     March 01, 2008

On March 8, Kids' WB! brings you Super Hero Saturday, an action-packed television event like nothing you've seen before!

On that morning, 'The Spectacular Spider-Man' premieres on Kids' WB!, 'The Batman' comes to its final exciting conclusion, and 'Legion of Super Heroes' returns with all-new episodes on The CW.

'The Spectacular Spider-Man' makes its world network television debut with back-to-back episodes. "Survival of the Fittest," which introduces the series and its many characters while pitting Spider-Man against Vulture, airs at 10:00 a.m. ET/PT; Spider-Man's first confrontation with Electro is featured in "Interactions" at 10:30 a.m. ET/PT.

Multiple Emmy Award winner 'The Batman' closes its fifth and final season with a full-hour "movie" entitled "Lost Heroes" at 11:00 a.m. ET/PT. In the special TV movie, the most powerful members of the Justice League are abducted one-by-one. Batman, Robin and Green Arrow discover the mystery surrounding their disappearance – The Joining has returned (with some earthly villainous assistance) and has transferred the Justice League's powers into alien androids. It's up to Batman, Robin and Green Arrow to help their JL friends regain their powers and prevent an alien invasion. The one-hour special includes appearances by Green Lantern, Hawkman, Flash, Superman, Green Arrow, Toyman, Mirror Master, Dr. Hugo Strange and The Joining. The film is written by Stan Berkowitz and Alexx Van Dyne, and directed by John Fang and Vinton Heuck.

While 'The Batman' comes to an end, 'Legion of Super Heroes' returns in a new timeslot – 9:30 a.m. ET/PT – with an all-new episode that examines the formation of the future corps of heroes. The "In the Beginning" synopsis:  While on a mission to rescue the Legion's benefactor, R.J. Brande, our heroes find themselves reminiscing about how the Legion was first created by Brande and its founding members: Cosmic Boy, Lightning Lad, and Saturn Girl. The episode is written by Steven Melching and directed by James Tucker.
