MegaMan NT Warrior premiered on Kids’ WB! in May of 2003, introducing U.S. audiences to the year 200X, where virtually all technology is linked to a central computer system. The show centers on Lan, a tech-savvy fifth grader, and his NetNavi (Net Navigator), the blue-suited, virus-fighting MegaMan. Lan and his friends interact with a rapidly progressive technology where hackers and high-tech computer crimes threaten their lives and the entire universe. Only by working as a team can they thwart the evil Mr. Wily and his chaos-causing Net crime organization, World Three.
