About this Article

Seth Meyers and Michael Shoemaker first began plotting "The Awesomes," their new comic animated superhero series, in 2006, when Meyers was ascending to the Weekend Update desk at "Saturday Night Live." "Time-wise, this was a way better idea in 2006," says Meyers. "That summer was glacial for Seth Meyers. I couldn't get arrested in 2006." The summer of 2013, however, is an entirely different matter.
