The Thing and The Metal Men

Out of all of DC's properties, I think that The Metal Men have the best potential for translation to children's animation. A team of brightly colored robots that can transform into anything, each with their own distinct personalities? Sounds like the perfect recipe to me. Their stories are exciting but light hearted and best of all educational... I really think DC is missing a sure thing by not pitching a series to Nickelodeon or The Cartoon Network. I was beyond thrilled to see The Metal Men make a few appearances on Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and those episodes only confirmed my opinion on this. So, if anyone from DC reads this blog, get this in motion!

Absolutely true. My five year old adores the Metal men solely from their appearance on batb. It seems like the perfect sciencey-kid friendly super hero concept.
Also, awesome cover!

I have thought for years the Metal Men would be great as a cartoon series. Hopefully they do one at Cartoon Network.
