DC Nation Returns to Cartoon Network January 5th

The DC Nation programing block mysteriously disappeared from the Cartoon Network schedule a few months ago and we’ve got the official word that it’s coming back on Saturday January 5, 2013. From the press release:

Warner Bros. Animation’s DC Nation programming block comes soaring back, bringing action from the pages of DC Comics to the television screens of comic book fans of all ages.  Green Lantern: The Animated Series goes retro-futuristic when it starts the block with the episode “Steam Lantern.” After being blasted by the Anti-Monitor, Hal finds himself in a steampunk world. Young Justice: Invasion answers lingering questions from the past season with “Before the Dawn,” when Blue Beetle, Miss Martian and the team go on a covert mission to rescue some of their own, uncovering shocking secrets and devastating truths. In between episodes, fans will enjoy all-new DC animated shorts starring some of their favorite DC Comics characters.

Green Lantern: The Animated Series will start up at 10 ET that Saturday with Young Justice: Invasion following at 10:30.
