The League of Freedom

"Supermansion" review by Suzanne 10/22/15
Airs Thursdays on Crackle

This is a very funny cartoon about a group of aging superheroes. I know that the team who did "Robot Chicken" is behind it, but frankly I find it better than that show. Here's why. I'm 53, and so I don't get some of the younger pop culture references in "Robot Chicken."  However, this show is about superheroes, so I get those references. It's more of a show for geeks, especially superhero fans.

The show basically satires "The Avengers" and other superhero teams.  They have a character, American Ranger (Keegan-Michael Key), who is kind of a combination of Batman and Captain America. He was frozen for a long time and was recently revived (like Cap), but he also acts a lot like Batman and has a very similar voice. His arch-nemesis is a lot like The Joker. They have a black character in the first episode with an eye-patch, who looks and sounds a lot like Samuel L. Jackson's Fury. The female cat character is somewhat like Catwoman but also reminds me of the Cat character on "Red Dwarf." It's hard to pick a favorite, but I do love Jewbot as well as American Ranger.

The "star" of the show is Titanium Rex (voice by Bryan Cranston), who is very old and trying to keep his team of crazy superheroes together.  I just laughed all the way through it. I don't know anyone who's a comic book fan that won't find it hilarious.
