Chameleon Boy will be one of the new members of Legion of Super Heroes featured in the show's second season, starting Sept. 22 on Kids' WB!.

Story editor Michael Jelenic described the thought process he and producer James Tucker had in bringing Chameleon Boy into the show.

"The thing about Legion is there's like a ridiculous amount of characters, like hundreds and hundreds. And it's like, who are you going to choose?" Jelenic said. "James and I are were talking about who would be a great addition, and I think Chameleon Boy is pretty obvious, just because his super-powers, he can change and do all sorts of weird stuff. But then we also wanted to bring in the other thing of comic relief."

Tucker described the character as "Eddie Haskell as a shape-shifter."

Chameleon Boy is voiced by Alex Polinsky.

"He voices it in such a hilarious way, but he's still a serious super-hero and can still-kick ass," Jelenic said. "I think everyone's going to like him a lot."

Polinsky said he wasn't familiar with the character when he got the job, but did online research.

"He's kind of humanoid, but the way (the creators) drew him is much more insect-like, and he's much lower to the ground," Polinsky said. "He's much more impish; he kind of looked stuck-up in the original comic."

Polinsky said Chameleon Boy is a smack-talker. "He likes to get into trouble," he said.

Chameleon Boy will already be a member of the team when the second season starts. Tucker explained that the show picks up 18 months to two years after the end of Season 1.

"It will be easy for fans to catch on through the dialogue and stuff," Tucker said. "Chameleon Boy's been there a while. Everyone's kind of used to him. They may not all like him, but he's there and his dad kind of funds the Legion."

The August 14 release of the Doctor Strange animated movie on DVD will include a preview of the fifth Lionsgate/Marvel animated film.

Avengers Reborn, previously titled Teen Avengers, will be released in the summer of 2008.

The film is written by Craig Yost, who co-writes Marvel Comics' New X-Men with Marvel Studios' Craig Kyle and is story editor of Cartoon Network's Fantastic Four animated series. It is directed by Gary Hartle, who storyboarded the big battle sequence in Ultimate Avengers.

Marvel's Eric Rollman told The Continuum the film will skew younger than the two Ultimate Avengers films with younger protagonists.

Avengers Reborn is set in the future, featuring an aged Tony Stark and Ultron as a villain.
