Sci Fi Wire has some notes about actor Kirk Jones doing approximately 85 percent of his own stunts. I'm hanging from chains for, like, 12 hours like this [mimes a crucifixion pose], like 'The Passion of [the] Christ,'" Jones said. "I mean, not straight [through]Ńyou come out [for breaks]Ńbut through the course of the whole day. That's how I got, like, damaged nerves, ruptured nerves, actually, [in my fingertips]. ... It was fun, though. All of the sword and fighting stuff I like to do myself. They've got an expert in kickboxing to simulate some of my kicks, but other than that, I try to do it, all me. ... I've been preparing for this role my whole life, because I've been in training for as long as I remember. Weight training, fighting training. ... Boxing training. But now it's all about martial-arts training. But boxing is the foundation of all our fighting. ... We practice almost every day. Sometimes it may be more. We put more time into it than others, where we have a set schedule, and we go to the action room and mess around for like three, four hours, you know? Or we might mess around for a half hour on the set, in between takes and stuff."

LEGION OF SUPER HEROES
Toon Zone has the network's description of the futuristic feature: "One thousand years from now, a group of teenage super heroes travel back in time to recruit the greatest hero of all, Superman, and enlist him their fight against evil in the 31st Century. While their intentions were good, their time travel skills were not, and Lightning Lad, Saturn Girl, Brainiac 5, Phantom Girl, Bouncing Boy and Timber Wolf end up going too far back into the past, accidentally retrieving the young Superboy instead. Together, this unlikely Legion of Super Heroes bands together to defend the rights of all free worlds and uphold the laws of the newly formed United Planets. That is, if they don't kill each other first. Legion Of Super Heroes combines humor with high-stakes, grand-scale super heroics to create the ultimate sci-fi, super hero fantasy for kids of all ages. Each episode of this fast-paced, character-driven action comedy will pit Superboy and the Legion against otherworldly threats and adversaries who challenge the team on both super heroic and emotional levels. The series is executive produced by Sander Schwartz, and produced by Linda Steiner and James Tucker for Warner Bros. Animation."
