Armed with a whole new approach to badness, step into the adventures of four super villains who have set their sights on nothing less than total neighborhood domination!

Going full blast on the ‘Hero Up’ fun, Cartoon Network takes classic comic heroes fresh from comic book pages and into television screens. From May to June, prepare for three brand new, exciting series, Wolverine and the X-Men, Iron Man Armored Adventures and Super Hero Squad!

In Wolverine and the X-Men, a mysterious explosion devastated Professor Xavier’s school and the mutant heroes found themselves leaderless and without direction and the X-Men disbanded and Wolverine struck out on his own. One year later, the once fiercely independent Wolverine must reunite the X-Men to prevent a horrible vision of the future. A future where the X-Men gave up on Xavier’s mission and the world fell into chaos!

Watch the making of an epic comic book hero in Iron Man Armored Adventures! The series takes viewers into the life of a young Tony Spark who juggles his time cramming for exams, testing his latest inventions, thrill-seeking, and…saving the world. See how Tony reconciles his normal teenage life with the staggering responsibility that comes with his revolutionary invention: hi-tech flight armor, through which the world knows him as Iron Man.

Finally, when the greatest and coolest heroes on the planet unite to face the world’s greatest villains, everyone gets a treat out of the biggest, most family-friendly Super Hero team-up in TV history. It’s no small job protecting Super Hero City from the wild, weird and even wacky villainy of VillainVille’s infamous baddies… but the Super Hero Squad is always up for the job. Tune in to the brave heroes, Captain America, The Hulk and Thor, as they deliver action – but with plenty of humor on the side.
