Fans of superheroic action will get a double dose of animated thrills in a poignant and action-packed send-off to Justice League Unlimited . The final two episodes of the series will air on Saturday, May 6, and Saturday, May 13, at 10:30 p.m. during the Cartoon Network's Toonami block.

In the series conclusion of JLU, the curtain is finally pulled back to reveal the villainous puppet master behind the new Legion of Doom. Longtime JLU viewers won't be surprised to find out the ubervillain is none other than...a secret that TV.com won't spoil.

In the action-packed finale, The League must get even more "unlimited" help than they have in the past to fight this last, all-out battle. This time, they find help in the most unexpected of places, including...again, TV.com is not going to spoil the surprise.

JLU premiered in 2001, simply titled Justice League. The series featured a team of heroes made up of DC Comics mainstays Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Hawkgirl, and Martian Manhunter. Together, this formidable team fought off the likes of Brainiac, Lex Luthor, and the usual suspects, as well as a host of aliens, sorcerers, and idiotic humans.

In the third season, Unlimited was added to the title, thus allowing the team to attain the super services of a wider range of guest-heroes.

The show featured the voice talents of Carl Lumbly, who plays Marcus Dixon on the soon-to-be-ending series Alias, as Martian Manhunter. Phil LaMarr of sketch-comedy show MadTV performed the voice of Green Lantern.

The series was created by Bruce Timm, who oversaw another popular comic-book series, Batman: The Animated Series.
