Zevo-3 is an American animated series based on a product marketed by the shoe manufacturer Skechers. The show revolves around three main antagonists - Jason James, Ellie Martin, and Ellie's little brother Matt. After Matt exposes them to the Zevo compound by accident, the three teens develop strange powers and adopt superhero identities. Jason, the oldest and the one who takes lead in the Zevo-3, becomes Z-Strap and gains the ability to control metal objects as well as transform his appendages into items such as spears or cages. Ellie becomes Elastika, with the Zevo compound giving her super strong and durable hair that can transform into other objects, such as a megaphone to hear something far away. Matt, in his guise as Kewl Breeze, can manipulate ice in all of its forms. In addition to his superpower, Matt is extremely intelligent and has created a number of inventions the Zevo-3 team utilizes. This includes one which allows the other team members to shrink down to microscopic size. The trio works to keep New Eden City safe from Dr. Stankfoot, who was turned to stone by the Zevo compound several decades before and now lays claim to the city. Other protagonists include Stankfoot's enforcer, Blacktop, Stankfoot's former partner Dark Materia, and Mayor Brett Ronson III, who hides a dark secret from the citizens of New Eden City while he tries to build it into a paradise. Zevo-3 is produced by Mike Young Productions in association with MoonScoop Group and Skechers Entertainment. It premiered on the American cable network NickToons on October 11, 2010, despite a filed complaint to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) by the Campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood describing the series as an extended commercial for Skechers products. The show remained on the NickToons schedule until the network canceled it on May 7, 2011.
