JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED UPDATE

The Legion of Super-Heroes will be featured along with Supergirl in an upcoming episode of Cartoon Network's Justice League Unlimited.

In the episode, Supergirl is kidnapped to the 31st century for what the history books say was her last adventure. The Fatal Five appears, as do more than 20 Legionaires.

Among the Legion members in the episode are Brainiac 5 and Bouncing Boy.

The Legion's appearance has nothing to do with the Legion show in development at Warner Bros. Animation.

In other Justice League news,

* Toonami UK has provided a hint at upcoming events in a recent release promoting its January programming.

It mentions "a two-part series finale" that "reveal the real reason behind all the super-villain's recent attacks and lead to the most unexpected team-up in Justice League history."

* Mark Hamill, who returns to the role of the Trickster 14 years after playing him in The Flash TV series in the "Flash and Substance" episode, will have a "meaty role" in that episode, The Continuum has learned.

IRON MAN ANIMATED MOVIE

Marc Worden is providing the voice of Iron Man in the upcoming Iron Man animated film from Marvel and Lionsgate, The Continuum has learned.

Worden also voices Iron Man in both Ultimate Avengers animated movies.

Although the voice of Iron Man is the same, the Iron Man and Ultimate Avengers films will not be connected. According to comments made by Marvelšs Craig Kyle and writer Greg Johnson at Wizard World Boston, the movie will be an origin piece.

"It's his origin, updated," Johnson said at Boston. "It isn't based on anybody's specific run. There are some surprises that I think are going to thrill the fans because it's a great origin story."

Frank Paur is producing both Iron Man and the next direct-to-DVD film, Doctor Strange.

Worden, 29, has provided voices for Justice League Unlimited, Batman Beyond and Static Shock. His television credits include Enterprise, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, NYPD Blue and Six Feet Under. He was also a regular on the Mickey Mouse Club for five years.

JIMMY PALMIOTTI TALKS JONAH HEX

Bounty hunter Jonah Hex teams up with the pacifistic Bat Lash in Jonah Hex #3, out in stores on Thursday and a unique team-up of DC Comics' Western characters with very different personalities.

"That was one of the fun things about trying to make it work, which I think it does pretty well," said Jimmy Palmiotti, who writes the book with Justin Gray. "The combination of attitudes and values makes for some really interesting confrontations in the book."

In the story, with art by Luke Ross, Jonah Hex finds himself at odds with deadly highwaymen and a corrupt sheriff willing to kill to keep a secret.

It's a self-contained story, part of a series of such planned for the title.

"We have a couple of multi-issue stories in the future but they are for a reason," Palmiotti said. "The first half year out of the gate are all single issues though."

Palmiotti said he has been pleased with the reaction to the series so far.

"The fans are loving it, we have done press, have been reviewed in over 100 magazines and newspapers and the retailers are extremely happy with the sales and the interest in the back issues," he said. "What more can you ask from a series that stands on its own and does not depend on giant crossovers?"

Phil Noto provides the cover with #3, and the rotating cover artists continue with Howard Chaykin on #4 and Brian Bolland on #5.

Palmiotti said he's been told to put a lid on announcing any future cover artists. "Let's just say it's a fantastic list of artists that are dying to handle the property...and it shows in every cover," he said.
