This weekend on The Super Hero Squad, don’t be surprised if your ears perk up a bit.  Adam West will provide the voice for Nighthawk, the leader of a team of the Squadron Supreme.

Led by Nighthawk (voiced by the legendary Adam West), the team of Power Princess and Hyperion have a few things to say to our Squaddies…and they’re saying it with their fists! Plus, The Grandmaster makes his stunning debut, voiced by none other than Seinfeld’s very own John O’Hurley!

The Super Hero Squad airs Saturday morning on the Cartoon Network.

    Yay. Saw the Brave and the Bold episode “Plague Of The Prototypes” and Adam West’s part just killed me on that episode. “Hammock of justice!”

    This should be fun! I love watching this show with my friends kids, and I always find Adam West doing a voice in a cartoon to be quite hilarious, even if unintended (but usually it’s meant to be).

    Initially, the Squadon Supreme were created just so the early 70’s / late 60’s era Avengers could fight DC’s “Justice League”, or at least close approximations thereof. The original Squadron Supreme SO closely mirror the DC properties, I’m surprised a lawsuit didn’t happen.

    The metafiction at play here is going to be over the heads of most viewers, but I have to give kudos to the show runners for thinking of Adam West as the voice of the Marvel U Batman analogue.

      A lawsuit didn’t happen because it was an unofficial crossover, and the creators were all complicit in it… The Justifiers of Angar showed up in JLA roughly the same time, comprised of thinly veiled Avengers expies…
