This week in the world of cartoons, Anarky makes an appearance on Beware the Batman, Disney's recent purchases of Marvel and Lucasfilm show through on Ultimate Spider-Man, and we get a raucous series finale to Transformers Prime.
As always - minor spoilers ahead!
Beware the Batman – "Tests"
Anarky, the villain targeted as Batman's number one for on the series finally makes an appearance this week. Batman takes down some graffiti artists before Anarky debuts in this clip.
Anarky began as a comic book character inspired by Alan Moore & David Lloyd's V for Vendetta, but this version is quite different from the the four color analogue. This iteration of Anarky looks a little too much like Moon Knight.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – "Operation: Break Out"
April O'Neil's psychologist father, Kirby O'Neill, is being held by Kraang and Dimension X's Newtralizer. Donatello, forever in love with April, breaks in to save him and bonds with Kirby in this clip.
Axe Cop - "Zombie Island... In Space"
I will watch anything that involves Nick Offerman (an expert woodworker best known as Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation). Offersman pairs with his wife Megan Mullally (Will & Grace, Party Down) and The State's Ken Marino to provide voices for Axe Cop, a new offering from Fox's Animation Domination line.
The series is based on the webcomic by brothers Ethan Nicolle and Malachai Nicholle - Malachai started the comic at the age of 5 (he's now 9).
Transformers Prime - "Deadlock"
It's the series finale of the best Transformers series in a long time. The Autobots are on the verge of returning Cybertron to its past glory, and a battle against the Decepticons in space is all that stands in their way.
Futurama – "Calculon 2.0"
Calculon returns from the dead in this episode, with Fry and Bender venturing to Robot Hell to retrieve Calculon's disembodied software.
