NICKTOONS/MARVEL EPISODES

Nicktoons has scheduled new-to-the-network epsiodes of Marvel animated series as part of blocks during the Thanksgiving weekend.

Following is a rundown:

FRIDAY, NOV. 27

Fantastic Four: World's Greatest Heroes, "Bait & Switch" at 9 p.m.

While Reed conducts an experiment designed to cure Ben Grimm, there's an energy disruption which causes the experiment to go haywire. Now the Fantastic Four's powers have switched, but they don't have time to get used to them before they have to save the city.

Fantastic Four: World's Greatest Heroes, "Annihilation" at 9:30 p.m.

The Fantastic Four fall into a trap and are taken to the Negative Zone, where they're attacked by Annihilus and his warriors. Something in the Zone is affecting the Four's powers and things go from bad to worse when Doctor Doom arrives with Annihilus! But Doom isn't one to share power, and he takes Annihilus' energy source back to Earth with him. But even if the Four can escape Annihilus, how can they defeat Doom, who now has the power to destroy the world?

SATURDAY, NOV. 28

Iron Man: Armored Adventures, "Tales Of Suspense: Part One" at 9 p.m.

Gene Khan wasn't always the Mandarin and leader of the Tong‹his step-father Zhang once held that title. Now Zhang is back for the Makluan Rings, and he'll stop at nothing to get them all. Zhang captures Gene, Tony, and Pepper, and forces the location of the fifth ring from Tony. And while Rhodey struggles to find his friends, Tony and Gene are faced with the fifth guardian... an ancient dragon by the name of Fin Fang Foom. But without Tony's armor and Gene's rings... what can kids do against a dragon?

Iron Man: Armored Adventures, "Tales Of Suspense: Part Two" at 9:30 p.m.

Secrets are revealed and friendships are destroyed forever as Rhodey dons the War Machine armor to save his friends from Zhang and Fin Fang Foom. With all five of the Makluan Rings now within Tony and Gene's reach, it's machine versus magic as Iron Man and War Machine fight against the dual threats of Fin Fang Foom and the Mandarin, in a battle that will change everything.

SUNDAY, NOV. 29

Wolverine and the X-Men, "Foresight ­ Part 1" at 9 p.m.

Jean Grey is now in the clutches of a shadowy organization known as The Inner Circle. The nature of the Phoenix Force dwelling inside her is explained, and a plan is set in motion to remove it from her before it can cause mass destruction. At the same time, Magneto uses Mystique to impersonate Senator Kelly and order the launch of the Sentinels on Genosha. In the face of such an overt and unprovoked attack from the humans, Magneto now has everything he needs to unite mutant-kind and mount a counterattack. However, Wanda wants no part of it and sends a warning to the X-Men, but will it be too late?

Wolverine and the X-Men, "Foresight ­ Part 2" at 9:30 p.m.

Jean is still in the clutches of the Inner Circle, where Emma and The Cuckoos work to open the mental barriers that Xavier had placed in Jean's mind to hold back the Phoenix. But the process is interrupted by Jean's psychic connection to Scott who is in trouble. That's because the unconscious X-Men remain in their crashed jet outside the Sentinel launch facility while the MRD closes in on them. Emma insists on going to help Scott, creating a rift between her and the Inner Circle, which is widened when she learns that the Inner Circle does not plan to destroy the Phoenix, but instead to harness it. Meanwhile, in the future, Xavier has been forced to use Master Mold's Cerebro unit to track down every last mutant on the planet, and once he's finished, Master Mold prepares to execute them all. But at the last minute, some very surprising help comes to Xavier's aid.

Wolverine and the X-Men, "Foresight ­ Part 3" at 10 p.m.

The final chapter. Magneto's Sentinels land in New York, and begin their retaliation against the humans. Meanwhile, the Cuckoos have worn down Jean's mind, and the final barriers holding back the Phoenix are ready to fall. In the future, Xavier, Bishop, and the rest of the X-Men prepare to make a final, hopeless stand against Master Mold. And in the present, it's up to Wolverine to stop both Magneto and the Inner Circle, and prevent that catastrophic future from coming to pass.
