"Super Hero Squad Show" Season 2 Vol 3: How the Squaddies Got Their Groove Back

With the third DVD of The Super Hero Squad Show Season 2, the Thanos plot of “The Infinity Gauntlet” story seems to come to an end, subbing in a surprising replacement for the season’s big bad guy. The previous DVD left a much less positive aftertaste than earlier volumes of the show, mostly because it […]

"Ultimate Spider-Man": Novel New Take on the Web-Slinger

While Spectacular Spider-Man hewed extremely closely to the stories and characterization in Stan and Steve’s original comics, Ultimate Spider-Man is far more willing to play with the formula in sensible ways, straying pretty far even from the newer comic book series from which it takes its title. Fury’s offer to Spider-Man makes perfect sense and […]

DC Nation and Marvel Universe: Animation Domination?

It was inevitable. With the demise of Kids’ WB, the only place left for DC Comics characters to appear in animation was the Warner-affiliated Cartoon Network. After Disney purchased Marvel, Marvel no longer needed investors and pitches to networks to get cartoons on TV. Now all Marvel needs is Disney approval and all of a […]

"Super Hero Squad Show" Season 2 Vol. 2: Maybe It's Broke After All...

After watching the Super Hero Squad Show Season 2 Volume 1 DVD, I came to the conclusion that the changes made were evolutionary improvements rather than revolutionary ones, rearranging the furniture and adding a few new fixtures rather than making massive, wholesale changes to the formula. After watching the second volume of this season, I […]

"Thor/Loki: Blood Brothers": What If the Bad Guy Wins and Then Won't Shut Up?

“What if the bad guy won?” is a common “what-if?” scenario played out in superhero comic books. Unfortunately, the answer provided by Marvel’s Thor/Loki: Blood Brothers to that question is that people end up talking. A lot. In simple-minded platitudes repeated over and over and over and over. And then once more for good measure. […]

"The Super Hero Squad Show" Season 2 Vol. 1: If It Ain't Broke...

Season 2 of The Super Hero Squad Show is an evolutionary improvement over the show’s first season rather than a revolutionary improvement. There are just enough nips, tucks, and shifts to freshen up the show, but most of it has been left alone. This is not a bad thing, since it’s just following the simple […]
