Add one more Marvel-based animated series to the lineup.
Though it was announced previously, an animated Marvel Super Hero Squad has found a home on Cartoon Network. According to Variety, CN has ordered 26 episodes of Marvel Super Hero Squad, featuring versions of their classic characters that are more young audience friendly. The “look” of Super Hero Squad is based on the Hasbro toy line of the same name. Marvel has published Super Hero Squad comics, both online and print, and at one time, was working on a videogame starring the versions of the characters with THQ.
According to the trade, Captain America, Silver Surfer, Hulk, Wolverine and Iron Man will “team up to fight crime.” Vocal talent for the series will include Tom Kenny, Charlie Adler, Grey DeLisle and Steve Blum.
The half-hour show targeted for 6-8 year olds is aiming for a late 2009 debut.
