Illustration for article titled The Return of Thundercats  and the Season Finale of Archer

This week, Thundercats returns, we learn what happens to Archer and his fellow ISIS members aboard the International Space Station, ponies plan for a tornado, and a fan favorite Autobot returns in this week's episode of Transformers: Prime - Minor Spoilers Ahead!


Thundercats – "New Alliances"

The Thundercats ramp things up, looking to take down Mumm-Ra's lizard army. Mumm-Ra convinces Slithe to recruit Addicus and Kaynar as Generals to battle the Thundercats, with a showdown between the generals and Lion-O in this clip.

Green Lantern: TAS – "Into the Abyss"

A cargo ship is caught in a black hole, and the Lanterns are sent to inspect the disturbance. In this clip, Kilowog and the Red Lantern Razer battle it out in order to recharge Razer's Red Lantern ring.

Young Justice – "Agendas"

While members of Young Justice gather for a dinner with their family, Superboy is called by a mysterious voice to Project Cadmus, only to find out that the genetics lab may be hiding another Clone of Superman. The Justice League appear in this episode as well!


DC Nation Short – "Shazamwich & Invisible Jet"

The first clip is the premier of Super Best Friends, the new short by Lauren Faust, one of the minds behind Power Puff Girl and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Supergirl wants to use the invisible jet to toilet paper the fortress of solitude, while Batgirl wants to flee to Mexico. Sounds interesting.

The second of the shorts shown on DC Nation is Shazamwich, and it initially aired on Cartoon Network's MAD. In this short, Billy Batson uses his Captain Marvel persona to sell a brand of sandwiches. I wonder what Kid Miracleman would do to sell a sandwich to Miracleman?

Also, here is a preview of this week's Aardman Animations DC short, showing their interpretation of Superman as he ponders the utility of Wonder Woman's clothes.


Marvel Anime: Blade – " Sins of the Father "

In this episode, Blade is a prisoner of Existence, and we learn a little bit more about the tragic story behind Deacon Frost and what drives him to perform genetic research on vampires.


Archer – "Space Race: Part 2"

This is the finale for Season 3 - these seasons of Archer are waaaay too short. A mutiny is taking place on the International Space Station, and the mutineers need to fertile women to colonize Mars. Keep your eye peeled for a power loader from the Alien movies in the background. Somewhere on Mars, in the distant future, an entire colony of little Pams might jump and play amongst the red dirt.


Transformers Prime – " Loose Cannons"

Wheeljack is back! Wheeljack comes to Earth in looking for the Deception Dreadwing, but Optimus Prime is suspicious of Wheeljack's return. You can see Wheeljack's story of tracking Dreadwing in this clip.


My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic – "Hurricane Fluttershy"

Fluttershy is self-conscious, but she needs to get over it, as Rainbow Dash and several of the other ponies are preparing for Tornado Day. This clip shows the ponies using anemometer to learn how well they are flying, with the hopes of setting a new Tornado speed record.

It wasn't as memorable as the creepy "Danger Zone" line by Cranston's character, but I enjoyed the less than subtle Wrath of Khan reference.

Lana being a total catty bitch to Trish but Trish kind of provoked it.

And Carol/Cheryl was a hilarious as the wannabe Queen of Mars.

"But just to be clear, we don’t do babies."

"Do’ as in?"

"Do as in tolerate, be around, touch and definitely as in let them claw their monstery way out of our vagina."
