This week in the world of cartoons, Aunt May goes out on a date with Agent Coulson on Ultimate Spider-Man, the Avengers get replaced, creepy cloned penguins watch you sleep on Adventure Time, and the Green Lantern enters a Dickensian world!

Gravity Falls is off for a few weeks, but will return.

As always - minor spoilers ahead!

Green Lantern: TAS – "Steam Lantern"

In this episode, Hal Jordan is transported to a Dickensian alternate world where steam is the king when it comes to power.


Check out this clip for a peek at some steampunk-inspired Green Lantern action!

Ultimate Spider-Man – Attack of the Beetle"

Agent Phil Coulson takes the lead in this episode of Ultimate Spider-Man.

The suit and tie wearing S.H.I.E.L.D. agent gets into a fist-fight with B-level Marvel villain the Beetle and takes Aunt May on a date.


Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes – "New Avengers"

There are many Kangs in the alterniverse, and all of them are teaming up to take down the Avengers.


Kang is moderately successful, leading to the deployment of Iron Man's fail-safe plan — recruiting Spider-Man, War Machine, Thing, Power Man, and Iron Fist to become Avengers.

Transformers: Prime – "Inside Job"

The Decepticons kidnap the Autobot Smokescreen, but with a catch — Smokescreen learns the location of the Omega Key while in Decepticon custody.


Star Wars: The Clone Wars – "Front Runners"

Continuing from last week's episode, Ahsoka aids the rebels/terrorists of Onderon in a series of military actions against their Separatist ruler.


Regular Show – "Starter Pack"

Intern Thomas continues his run as a main character in this episode, with Mordecai and Rigby aiming to stop some of the more elaborate pranks in store for Thomas.


Check out the clip above for a montage (backed by a Mötley Crüe soundtrack) of intern pranking. We've all been there before.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – "New Friend, Old Enemy"

Shredder returns in this episode! Michelangelo makes use of a Facebook-like site to become friends with martial artist Chris Bradford. One catch — the famed martial artist is a good friend of Shredder's.


Adventure Time- "Reign of Gunters"

Gunter, the Ice King's annoying penguin compadre, is a little bit odd.

In this clip, Gunter raids the king's fridge, kisses a one-eyed cat, clones himself, and creepily watches Finn as he sleeps. Don't watch people while they sleep, kids.
