    Not sure how this slipped under the radar... Tonight at 8pm

    From AICN...

    "TRIAL BY FIRE," airing Saturday, Sept 2 at 8 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 9 at 11 a.m.

    Johnny is put on trial for crimes against the Kree Empire by Ronan the Accuser after destroying the latest in a line of Kree Sentries, alien robots that have been observing the Fantastic Four. When Johnny chooses Reed as his lawyer, Ben and Susan take the stand in Johnny's defense. But defending Johnny's reckless behavior is tougher than they thought, especially when the accused is presumed guilty before the trial even starts.

    "DOOMED," airing Saturday, Sept. 9 at 8 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 16 at 11 a.m.

    Doctor Doom hacks into Reed's consciousness, transferring his mind into Reed's body. Now trapped inside Doom's body, Reed must fight his way back to his family and friends before Doom transforms the Baxter Building into a weapon that could wipe out the Fantastic Four and half of the city.

    "DOOMSDAY," airing Saturday, Sept. 16 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 23 at 11 a.m.

    When Reed is accused of having purposefully exposed Susan, Johnny and Ben to the cosmic rays that transformed them into the Fantastic Four, the team is torn apart. But as Susan, Johnny and Ben individually wonder if Reed is capable of such a betrayal, they're attacked by the mastermind behind the plot against Reed -- Doctor Doom. Now the team has to escape Doom's prisons in order to save Reed and prevent Doom from plunging the city into the Negative Zone.

    "HARD KNOCKS," airing Saturday, Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 30 at 11 a.m.

    When an old friend of Reed's shows up looking for help, the Fantastic Four are in for the fight of their lives. His name is Bruce Banner, and he has a terrible secret -- he's the Incredible Hulk. And when Banner Hulks out and goes on a rampage through New York City, it¹s up to the FF to stop him.

    "MY NEIGHBOR WAS A SKRULL," airing Saturday, Sept. 30 at 8 p.m.

    Both the Storms suck, but Thing and Reed are pretty cool. Not impressed, but shows potential.

    No Justice League, tho.

    But Kree and mention of the Skrulls right out of the gate gets cool points.

    And Marvel churns out yet another terrible cartoon. I never thought any superhero 'toon would be able to make "The Batman" look good, but here it is. Horribly cliched plot, painful dialogue, bland voice-acting and a choppy mix of cel and CGI animation. Definitely not watching this again.

    Yay.. another cookie cutter, wanna be, anime show. Animation kinda reminds me of Sigma Six. Not as good though.

    It's not quite like Sigma Six, the conversations are much better paced and more natural. It just has that sharp anime design in the characters. The episode was really boring. I enjoyed Thing though.

    Anyone else notice the writer of the episode, Bob Forward.

    Also I was getting a Benimaru Nikaido vibe from Johnny Storm's hair.

    Not that bad. Yes, cliche, but not a trainwreck like most CN shows nowadays. I give it 6 episodes before CN decides they can't make licensing money off it and cancel it...

    Jeebus, sounds like the FF can't get a break into the cartoon world....

    The 70's version was no prize winner, and the early 90's cartoon goes out of its way to attract mediocrity....and yet, I have the set in my DVD collection.

    I agree. My biggest problem is that I felt like I was being thrown in head first. Granted, pretty much everyone probably knows the F4's origin, but some background would be nice. This didn't seem like the first episode, which wouldn't surprise me if that were the case.

    Also, Sue fainting seemed horribly out of character.
