Storyline

This cartoon series, characterized by extremely limited animation, features five of the most popular super-powered heroes from Marvel Comics: the Incredible Hulk, the Mighty Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, and the Sub-Mariner, each of whom is the star of 13 episodes, adding to a total of 65. All episodes are divided into three seven-minute segments separated by a short description of one of the other four heroes featured in the series. The Incredible Hulk, into whom scientist Bruce Banner changes whenever excited, angered, or bombarded by gamma rays from a machine, frequently combats the Leader, a villainous genius with a gamma-ray-mutated brain. Captain America's foe, the Red Skull, opposes him in World War II Europe, where Captain America's original self, Captain Steve Rogers, is stationed as a soldier. Thunder-God Mighty Thor's evil brother, Loki, concocts nature-twisting schemes in his vain effort to vanquish Thor, Thor's human half, Dr. Donald Blake, and Thor/Blake's love, Nurse...

Correction on # of episodes
17 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

I remember watching this exciting series back in the fall of 1978 on WPIX-TV, CH.11 (which is now the WB 11) . I distinctly remember watching the fall promo all summer long in New York City. I believe the station brought it back because of the "Incredible Hulk" live-action series, starring the late Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno, that was to appear on CBS that same fall. I believe the Marvel Series always started out with a Hulk episode. Although the animation was limited, the cartoons were based on actual Marvel stories from the 1960's. The voice-overs, the narrations and the background music brought an adventurous and serious element to the animated series, which makes up for the animation.

I keep seeing in many people's comments that there was 13 episodes for each of the 5 Marvel heroes (Captain America, Hulk, Iron Man, Thor and the Sub-mariner). I believe that is in error. There were 13 story lines per character with 3 episodes comprising a storyline. Therefore, there was a total of 39 episodes per character giving a grand total of 195 episodes.

Lastly, I read that all of the 195 episodes of the Marvel Superheroes will be coming out on DVD this summer to coincide the release of the new Fantastic Four movie slated for July 2005. The release date for the series will be June 28th, 2005.
