Cartoon Description: Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam

Notice: This is not Japanese animation! I have, however, decided to include it on this site anyway. If you're one of those hard-core anime purists who can't stand seeing a non-anime series on a site dedicated to Japanese animation, then just press the Back button on your web browser and pretend like you were never here.

Four adventures featuring 6 of DC Comics greatest heroes are showcased in this anthology of 4 tales. First, in Fawcett City orphan Billy Baston is to be featured in an article by Daily Planet reporter Clark Kent, but during a breakfast as the two conduct their interview, the evil Black Adam returns from a 5,000 year exile – and his target is the young Billy! Superman then battles the murderous villain but is overwhelmed by Black Adam's magical abilities. But then the reasons for his quest become clear – as Billy discovers his destiny as the World's Mightiest Mortal, Captain Marvel!

Next, the murder of a prominent movie producer has hard-boiled detective Jim Corrigan, a.k.a. The Spectre, investigating the case. And in the Spectre's often lethal fashion, he goes after the culprits until he finds the ringleader of the deadly scheme.

Then, Oliver Queen, a.k.a. Green Arrow, is held-up at the airport while picking-up his future fiancé that he plans to 'pop the question' on – on account of an old enemy involved in an assassination of a young princess! It soon becomes obvious about the motive as the battle winds its way through the bowels of the building.

And finally, old west bounty hunter Jonah Hex is on the trail of a killer who has the bad luck of coming to a saloon run by a deadly woman. If he wants the reward, then he's going to have to go through her!
