Conan O'Brien's superhero alter ego The Flaming C has officially crashed Comic-Con. Just half an hour into the Green Lantern: The Animated Series panel, fans were treated to a surprise screening of a CG animated trailer of a potential Flaming C story packed with fiery hair and even more fiery explosions. O'Brien erupted onstage
The latest piece of The New York Times Pulitzer-worthy series of articles about Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark indicated that the retooled Broadway musical based on the Marvel Comics superhero is indeed less disastrously awful than it once was, but stopped somewhere in "lousy" on its way to "good" and is only suitable for young children. Prompted by the harsh review, Conan O'Brien put together an approximation of what a kids' version of Turn Off the Dark would look like, complete with original songs

Every time we think we've seen the last of Conan O'Brien and Bruce Timm's masterful co-creation The Flaming C, the oven mitt and fishnet stocking-clad crusader seems to find his way into yet another compelling cameo on Cartoon Network's Young Justice. Following stints as a Superman stand-in, The Flaming C took on a new (and completely awesome) role as Doctor Fate in a fight against Klarion the Witch Boy and his familiar Teekl on last night's episode of Conan. The clash could only result in a video entitled "The Flaming C Opens Some Whoop Ass on a Cat." Indeed he does, after the jump.
When famed animator Bruce Timm sat down with Conan O'Brien a few months back to create The Flaming C, a super hero in the late night talkshow host's own image, fankind knew it had just witnessed something magical. That magic has since manifested into a fantastic fan-made custom action figure and not one, but two animated appearances within clips of Cartoon Network's Young Justice. Check out the latest clip of The Flaming C standing in for Superman after the cut.Premiering on TBS's Conan earlier this week, the latest Flaming C appearance sees the macho hero come to Superboy's aid as he struggles to save a school bus full of children from falling off a bridge. Just like Conan, The Flaming C has no time for idle chit-chat, however, and he rushes off to continue his never-ending battle against injustice in his loafers, fishnet stockings and garters, oven mitt and jai alai glove.
A Conan O'Brien-inspired superhero created by the talk show host and legendary Warner Bros. animator Bruce Timm has made his first appearance with the Justice League. O'Brien and Timm (Batman: The Animated Series, Justice League Unlimited) came up with The Flaming C back in December, when Conan first realized how close his new studio was to the famous Warner Bros. Animation building. O'Brien instructed a captive Timm to design the character with loafers, fishnet stockings and garters, oven mits, a jai alai glove and "more of an ass."
After realizing that his new talk show is produced not just fifty feet away from the legendary Warner Bros. Animation building at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California, comedian Conan O'Brien rushed over to discuss comics and animation with Chief Creative Officer Peter Girardi and DC Universe animator/producer/mastermind Bruce Timm. O'Brien offered Girardi some humorously unhelpful
