The first five episodes of Loonatics Unleashed occur in the year 2772, the year that a meteor strikes the fictional city-planet of Acmetropolis, knocking it completely off its original axis. However, instead of destroying the planet, the impact of the meteor and its resultant shock wave gives off supernatural cosmic energies that give some inhabitants superpowers while incapacitating others. A mysterious and powerful woman called Zadavia calls upon six of the affected residents to form a team of superheroes. She becomes their supervisor, dispatching them for the purpose of combating any and all threats to Acmetropolis and its citizens. The newly formed team is known as the Loonatics and reside on the 134th floor of a large tower. These characters are the descendants of the classic Looney Tunes characters, according to multiple press releases and official sources. Descendants of other Looney Tunes are unverified, though implied in certain situations.
A mysterious character known as Optimatus reveals that the meteor's striking Acmetropolis in 2772 was not an accident but a deliberate attempt to destroy Acmetropolis. Despite his failure in destroying the planet - the first attempt caused the energy release that gave the Loonatics and others their powers; the Loonatics stopped a second attempt with a space rock — he plans to attack the planet a third time. Later, in the two-part season-ending episode, “Acmegeddon,” Optimatus returns and is revealed to be Zadavia's brother. He targets the Loonatics, Zadavia and all of Acmetropolis, hoping to destroy them all. They successfully save Acmetropolis along with the rest of the solar system and send Optimatus to an unknown location in the universe via wormhole. Season 2 introduces many new characters and descendants of Looney Tunes. A second story arc begins: Optimatus returns, and as old villains reunite, Zadavia and the Loonatics, now joined by Sylth Vester and Tweetums, must save the galaxy once more. Before the series finale ends, Optimatus decides to use his powers for good.
