Justice is coming

If you've never watched Justice League on the Cartoon Network, you're really missing out. It's too bad Cartoon Network's treating the show so badly with the changes in timeslots, lack fo reruns, and lack of marketing. The show's written really well and one of my favorites on TV. Once that show is gone, I'll stop watching Cartoon Network as they have canceled two of my favorite cartoons in Justice League Unlimited and Teen Titans.
Still, a game is coming out featuring the original seven minus Hawkgirl with Zatanna in her place. Justice League Heroes
is coming to the Xbox, PS2, and the PSP in the Fall of 2006. The story for the game will be from one of the greats in Dwayne McDuffie
. The game's also developed by Snowblind Studios, best known for Champions of Norrath
and Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance
; two great action RPG games. I'm happy that the property is in good hands and I have high expectations for the game.
By the way, be sure to pick up the box set
of the first season of Justice League which goes on sale tomorrow.
