The plot of The Guardians of Justice Season 1

What is the upcoming Netflix series about?

Netflix has described The Guardians of Justice as follows:

“When their seemingly fearless leader self-destructs, a team of troubled superheroes must confront festering evil in the world — and in themselves.”

Another long synopsis of the upcoming superhero animated series was released in November 2021. The synopsis reads:

“The alien superhero MARVELOUS MAN has kept the earth at peace for 40 years. But when a devastating secret and its tragic consequences throws our world into chaos, it’s up to Marvelous Man’s bitter, violent lieutenant KNIGHT HAWK and idealistic do-gooder THE SPEED to stop nuclear war. A dark satire of the superhero genre, Guardians of Justice mixes live action with traditional animation, claymation, cut out paper animation, and 8-bit video game footage in a kaleidoscope of pop art insanity.” (Via Cannseries)

Season 1 of The Guardians of Justice will be released globally on March 1st, 2022, exclusively on Netflix.

The ensemble voice cast of the animated series includes Diamond Dallas Page, RJ Mitte, Sharni Vison, Hal Ozsan, Jane Seymour, Christopher Judge, Denise Richards, Andy Milonakis, and Derek Mears.
