In 2010 Cartoon Network unleashed a unique cartoon series focusing on the villains instead of the heroes with The League of Super Villains. The series ran for 3 seasons and was one of the more unique series of the time. After it ended in August of 2012 fans thought it was the last time the League would rear their evil heads, but thanks to Cinedigm you can now bring the entire series home with the League of Super Evil complete series on DVD.
The series follows a group of Super Villains who are plotting to take over their neighborhood in Metrotown and ultimately the world. Sadly most of their adventures never leave the neighborhood. While most of the area is an average suburban neighborhood, the League have a secret evil lair. Usually they are forced to square off against not just Metrotown’s heroes, but also more ‘important” super villains. The league consists of Voltar, Doktor Frogg, Red Menace, and Doomageddon. The series plays similar to other shows like Invader Zim, but plays up the comedy aspect way more with successful results. The animation has a computer traditional style that gives it a unique feel and makes it stand out like no other. The characters are all awesome and bumbling working with each other as well as against each other delivering some highly entertaining storylines. The character designs are great with a lot of contradictions between their names and looks. While they are all great it is the leader Voltar that is the most entertaining and steals the show. In addition to the leads this series never ceases to deliver on the fun with the other heroes and villains each more entertaining than the next. You actually feel bad for them because they try so hard, but never seem to do much other than annoy people and cause harm to themselves.
This is one of the most entertaining and underrated shows in years. In a world where the same superhero characters are constantly re-branded and given new shows this one stood out on its own and delivered something new that holds up really well. This DVD set includes all 52 episodes from the 3 seasons and is a must have for any super hero or super villain fan out there.
