What to watch on Toonami, The Home of Superheroes


Justice League Unlimited

A continuation of the Justice League animated series finds the original members of the team joined in their battle against crime and evil by dozens of other heroes from the DC comics universe.


Superman: The Animated Series

Follow the adventures of Superman the legendary superhero as he battles the forces of villainy and continues his quest for truth justice and the American way.


Batman: The Animated Series

Vowing to avenge the senseless murder of his wealthy parents, the millionaire playboy Bruce Wayne secretly assumes his crime-fighting alter-ego: ’Batman’, and devotes his life to wiping out lawlessness in Gotham City.


Green Lantern: The Animated Series

Hal Jordan, a test pilot from planet Earth, is the first human being to join Green Lantern Corps, an extra galactic police force in order to keep peace and justice through the entire universe.


Justice League

Forces of evil, chaos, and destruction await. Not even protectors like Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern or the Flash have a chance alone. But together as the Justice League, they are a metahuman force (and a hope) to be reckoned with.
