Young and the Legion of Super Heroes

Newsarama has a look at the new Legion of Super Heroes cartoon that is set to air in the fall in the Kids'WB programming block. They also make mention and link to an article about the recent changes that forced Superboy to be renamed "Young Superman".

According to the current version of the official press release, a group of teenagers from the 31st century travel back in time to recruit Superman in their fight against evil in their time. Unfortunately, they go too far back and land in a time when Superman was younger, just before he went to Metropolis. Taking him back to their future, the young Superman helps the Legion in fighting evil and upholding the laws of the United Planets. It is described as a "fast-paced, character-driven action comedy".

Personally I've never been a big fan of the Legion of Super Heroes and I'm wary of any DC cartoon that doesn't have the Paul Dini seal-of approval. It is a super hero cartoon so I'll give it a chance but I doubt if it will be appointment TV.
