JUSTICE LEAGUE: THE SAVAGE TIME

Courtesy Cartoon Network:

World’s Top Superheroes Band Together to Change History Saturday, November 9, at 7 p.m. (ET, PT)

The fate of the world rests on the shoulders of the world’s top superheroes in Justice League: The Savage Time, which debuts on Saturday, November 9, at 7 p.m. (ET, PT) during Cartoon Theatre, Cartoon Network’s weekly showcase of contemporary animated movies.

In this special feature length presentation of Justice League: The Savage Time, the Justice League returns from a mission deep in space to find a world that has drastically changed - for the worse. A ruthless, repressive dictator named Vandal Savage has seized control. To restore life as they know it, the world’s greatest collection of superheroes must travel back in time and team up with some heroes of the past to re-fight a world war in order to stop Savage from taking power.

When the Justice League lands back in Europe during the waning days of World War II, they find themselves split from each other and fighting side-by-side with the Resistance on the war’s frontline. Superman, Hawkgirl and the Flash join with the Blackhawks, a squad of fighter pilots from occupied nations, and assist in their efforts to destroy a critical enemy weapon before it can be deployed. Green Lantern is trapped behind enemy lines with a tough-as-nails Army squadron without the use of his ring, the source of his powers. Meanwhile, Manhunter heads to Berlin to infiltrate the despot’s headquarters and uncover the secret to his power while Wonder Woman teams up with an American spy to break Savage’s secret code.

The Justice League was born when Superman and Batman enlisted Green Lantern, Flash, Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter and Hawkgirl to face down powerful threats on Earth and from other parts of the galaxy. The heroes of the Justice League, who gather at their orbiting space station The Watchtower, may not always agree on the best way to conquer a threat, but they put their personal differences aside to work together to defeat any peril.
