Wizard is reporting that viewers can now catch an animated Bart Allen leaping into action during commercial breaks on Smallville. The CW is airing Smallville Legends: Justice & Doom, a five-part series of supplementary animated shorts featuring Smallville's version of the Justice League--Impulse, Aquaman, Green Arrow, and Cyborg. The first installment is available for viewing online now and the completed series is set to be included on the Smallville: Season Six DVD release.
A fair number of kryptonite-spawned faces have invaded Clark Kent’s hometown in its six seasons of primetime television. Typical guest stars get super-strength, bug-like powers or other annoying party tricks. However, writer Stefan Nilson invaded Smallville last week with something completely different.
Smallville gazers who left their sofas for snacks during the mid-show commercial break Thursday night missed the first in a five-part series of animated shorts titled Smallville Legends: Justice & Doom, which the show commissioned to supplement the adventures of its burgeoning Justice Leaguers. “Mark Warshaw, who is one of the producers for Smallville, came up with the plot for it, and from there I was writing the scripts for all five episodes,” Nilson said. “It’s following what the Justice League characters [Green Arrow, Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg] are doing outside of Smallville and Metropolis.”
