Green Lantern: The Animated Series Sneak Peek
October 26, 2011

In preparation for the debut of Green Lantern: The Animated Series, Warner has released this first scene of the new cartoon:

The one-hour debut special will air on Cartoon Network Friday, November 11 at 7 PM. Further episodes of the CG-animated series will launch next year as part of the “DC Nation” programming block. The premise draws from recent comics, most obviously in use of the Red Lanterns (a concept I thought would be considered too edgy for a kids’ cartoon — although that MODOK-looking one is a hoot!), but promises an “all-new story”:

As Earth’s Green Lantern, Hal Jordan is used to being in dangerous situations — but he’s never faced anything like this! Set at the farthest reaches of deep space, Green Lantern: The Animated Series finds Hal on the Guardian Frontier, where he must face down an invasion by 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!

A Green Lantern: The Animated Series comic will be coming out later in November from DC Comics.

I’d think whether the Red Lanterns are suitable for a kids’ cartoon is in the execution — “Powered by pure rage” isn’t too bad, if things like blood-vomiting and overly unpleasant backstories are dropped. The 90s Spider-man cartoon had Carnage and Venom….

Mmm, good point. Kids can probably relate to being angry and feeling powerless about it and wanting revenge.
