Ricardo Perez / Omni-Mass - Ogie Banks (Ultimate Spider-Man)

Erika - Felicia Day (The Guild, Supernatural)

Kane - Keith David (Adventure Time, Rick and Morty)

Netflix and Hasbro will transport viewers into a new generation of Stretch Armstrong with 26 episodes available for Netflix members worldwide beginning late 2017. Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters is developed for television by Executive Producer and Supervising Director Victor Cook (Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated) and Executive Producer/Story Editors/Head Writers Chris "Doc" Wyatt (Ultimate Spider-Man, Napoleon Dynamite) and Kevin Burke (Ultimate Spider-Man, Avengers Assemble).
