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...

Bad Animation + Goofy Sound Effects = Great Fun
27 February 2003 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I'm a huge superhero fan but in recent years have come to be able to poke gentle fun at my interests. The entire Marvel superheroes line is great for that because of the unintentional humour involved. 1960s Marvel, while groundbreaking has always had its goofy side, and these cartoons only heighten these elements. First of all, they take comic book artwork (which was often solid enough on its own) and animate it minimally in extremely silly looking ways (often repeating the same effects over and over during an episode). They they add in often funny sunny sound effects. These are heightened by the fact that onomatopoeia sometimes appears on the screen, and it more often than not fails to match the sounds you're hearing. Finally since story material is swiped from different comics, you get stuff like Iron Man or Doctor Doom's armour changing appearance back and forth at random. Great unintentionally humourous fun for any superhero fan who does not take him/herself too serious.

One final mention: some collections of Marvel material, including but not limited to material from this series, have an advertisement for Marvel collections with the most bored sounding announcer you'll ever hear talking about how you'll be thrilled by these exciting adventures and so on. This monotone delivery of supposedly thrilling material is worth seeking out in its own right.
