LEGION OF SUPER HEROES: "KARATE KID"

Kids' WB! has released four images from "Karate Kid," this Saturday's new episode of Legion of Super Heroes.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"When the dreaded Legion Auditions produce just one potential new member -- Nemesis Kid -- Superman goes out recruiting, and finds an unlikely candidate to join the Legion. A perpetual underdog, Karate Kid has no super powers -- which goes against Legion membership rules -- but Superman believes he has the heart to join the Legion. As the Legion hunts down Grimbor the Chainsman, Karate Kid believes he can be an asset, while the others worry he is only putting himself in harm's way. "

Keith Ferguson provides the voice of both Karate Kid and Nemesis Kid.

"Karate Kid" was writted by Eddie Guzelian and directed by Brandon Vietti and Scott Jeralds.

WORLD WAR HULK FINALE

Marvel Comics on Tuesday released two covers, an inside page and five panel shots from World War Hulk #5, the mini-series finale that goes on sale on Nov. 14.

The issue is written by Greg Pak, with art by John Romita Jr. and covers by Romita and David Finch.

Here's how Marvel describes the issue:

"The Hulk and Earth's heroes square off one last time...but who is the real hero of this war? Now that Sentry has involved himself in this epic conflict, does the more-powerful-than-ever Hulk stand a chance? And will anyone close to them survive this clash of the titans?

"Challenging your very notions of vengeance and justice, World War Hulk #5 will leave the Hulk -- and Marvel Universe -- forever changed. There's no going back for the Green Goliath, as he enters the final battle in this blockbuster event...and only one side can win! Once this issue is finished, shockwaves will ripple through Mighty Avengers, New Avengers and more! And there's an announcement about three new major titles in the final pages!"
