Aquaman was the punchline of the first Robot Chicken DC Comics Special but the King of the Seven Seas is off the hook in the sequel. In fact, he’s not even mentioned in the press release.
The superheroes and supervillains go on Spring Break in Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II: Villains In Paradise, which will kick off season 7. The rivalry between Superman (Breckin Meyer) and Lex Luthor (Alfred Molina) gets personal when their proteges team up. Superboy (Zac Efron) and Lex Luthor’s daughter Lena (Sarah Hyland) fall in love because as every fanboy knows the men of the House of El have a thing for women with the initials L.L.
“DC was incredibly cool about letting us be silly, knowing that everything comes from a place of love,” creator Seth told TV Guide. “We’re celebrating their willingness not to take themselves too seriously.”
Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II: Villains In Paradise premieres Sunday, April 6 at 11:30 p.m. on Adult Swim.
