Justice League Unlimited returns to Cartoon Network on Saturday at 10:30 p.m. with "Flash and Substance."

Here's how Cartoon Network describes the episode, which has already aired on Cartoon Network UK:

"Batman and Orion see a different side of the Flash when a rogues' gallery of villains attacks the museum that is opening in his honor."

"Flash and Substance" was written by story editor Matt Wayne, who has also worked on the first Hellboy animated movie.

"I love the Flash, particularly the JLU take on him," Wayne told The Continuum. "The great thing about this Wally is what a nuanced character he is. He's kind of the League's heart, the moral compass. He's also a big goof--an arrested adolescent who either tries too hard to impress girls or can't read their signals.

"This was initially supposed to tell a straightforward, simple story after all the armies charging at each other in the two previous episodes, to give the board artists and animators a break. Somewhere in there we decided to have the Rogues Gallery appear. So much for going easy on the crew. It ended up being a fun action episode that also deals with what makes him the Flash."

Mark Hamill, who played The Trickster in CBS' live-action The Flash, reprises the role in animation. Other guest voices include Donal Gibson as Captain Boomerang, Kim Mai Guest as Linda Park, Alexis Denisof as Mirror Master, Ron Perlman as Orion and Lex Lang as Captain Cold.


Marvel Comics on Thursday staged a telephone news conference for its upcoming Annihilation event.

Jim McLauchlin, Top Cow's editor-in-chief, told The Continuum that the first issue of the Rising Stars: Untouchable mini-series will ship on Feb. 22, earlier than solicited.

The second issue of the five-issue mini-series, by Fiona Avery and Brent Anderson, will be in stores on March 29.

"It's a five-issue series, and we have all the line art for #1-#4 done," McLauchlin said. "Brent Anderson is into #5 as we speak. Retail may order with confidence. Readers may read with confidence."

Here's how Top Cow describes the first issue:

"Ripped from the pages of the monumental Rising Stars, learn the truth behind Laurel Darkhaven's telekinetic secrets in this new limited series! Writer Fiona Avery and artist Brent Anderson craft the tale of young 'Special' Laurel Darkhaven, an 18-year-old high-school graduate recruited as a CIA assassin. International intrigue abounds!"
