Creating your own comic book character usually includes a list of “cool” abilities and features like claws, levitation, laser eyes, and a great costume. When Conan O’Brien got his chance to create his own comic book character, he went typical Conan: goofy. Bruce Timm, co-creator and character designer of Batman: The Animated Series and more, gave O’Brien the royal treatment by drawing The Flaming C. However, Timm didn’t stop there. In the latest episode of The Conan O’Brien Show, they premiered footage of The Flaming C spliced into the pilot episode of Cartoon Network’s awesome new series, Young Justice, and hilarity ensues.

On Tuesday morning, Collider was invited to a Warner Bros. Animation presentation on the studio lot, as part of the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour that kicked off this week.
Held in the Steven J. Ross Theater and hosted by Peter Roth, President of Warner Bros. Television, and Sam Register, Executive Vice President of Creative Affairs for Warner Bros. Animation, the gathered press were shown highlights from current series Batman: The Brave and the Bold and Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, as well as sneak peeks of their upcoming programs MAD, Young Justice and The Looney Tunes Show.
Following that, we were then given a screening of two of their three new state-of-the-art CG and 3-D theatrical cartoon shorts, each three minutes in length and featuring the iconic characters of Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner. In the films, Wile E. Coyote continues to be left in the dust by his hapless nemesis, Road Runner, always taunting him with his famous “beep-beep.” These cartoons will debut in theaters, attached to upcoming feature film releases from Warner Bros. Pictures. More after the jump:
Cartoon Network unveiled their new and returning series yesterday and one of the new ones was Young Justice. Based on characters from the DC Universe, Young Justice will feature teenage versions of Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis. The series will be executive produced by Sam Register (Teen Titans, Ben 10, Batman: The Brave and the Bold) and Brandon Vietti (Batman: Under the Red Hood, Superman Doomsday, The Batman) and Greg Weisman (Gargoyles, The Spectacular Spider-Man, W.I.T.C.H.) are the producers.
No word on the premiere date, but I’d imagine it’s sometime in the fall and we’ll hear specifics at Comic-Con. Hit the jump for the first image/poster from the series.
