PlotEdit

The League of Freedom is a superhero group that is led by the aging superhero Titanium Rex. From their base called SuperMansion in the fictional city of Storm City, Titanium Rex and his fellow superheroes Black Saturn, American Ranger, Jewbot/Robobot, Cooch, and Brad struggle to keep the team relevant even if it involves fighting an assortment of supervillains like Dr. Devizo as well as Titanium Rex's daughter Lex Lightning.

In Season Two, Dr. Devizo and Lex Lightning form the Injustice Club in order to combat the League of Freedom. In addition, the League of Freedom deals with a Subtopian invasion led by Titanium Rex's brother Titanium Dax.

By season three, the League of Freedom has to share the SuperMansion with the Injustice Club in light of Dr. Devizo helping to stop the Subtopian invasion.

ProductionEdit

SuperMansion began life as a quarter-hour pilot for Adult Swim, under the original name Übermansion[2] where, along with a bunch of other pilots (including King Star King and Mr. Pickles, both of which were eventually greenlit), competed into which pilot would be turn into Adult Swim's next series.[3] The pilot won and aired (along with the pilots to King Star King and Mr. Pickles) on August 25, 2013.[4] For whatever reason, the series moved to Crackle instead with the name change from Übermansion to SuperMansion.[5]

On April 14, 2015, Sony announced that the stop-motion animated series was being developed by Crackle, which Bryan Cranston would voice and executive produce with his Moon Shot Entertainment.[6] Thirteen episodes were being produced, and also starring Seth Green, Keegan-Michael Key, and Jillian Bell.[6] Matthew Senreich and Zeb Wells wrote and would executive produce the series, while other executive producers would be Green, John Harvatine IV, Eric Towner, and James Degus, while Stoopid Buddy Stoodios would produce.[6] The first trailer was released on July 9, 2015, and the other cast included Senreich, Wells, Heidi Gardner, Tom Root, Tucker Gilmore and some other guest stars.[7]

For the show's second season, Arby's signed a product placement deal with the series as part of a broader deal with Crackle. In addition, Arby's was shown to be next door to the abandoned pizza restaurant which the Injustice Club uses as their hideout.[8]
