Just as teenage mutant Kitty Pryde is welcomed to the X-Men, the team of mutant heroes are called into battle to prevent Magneto and his Brotherhood of Evil Mutants from crashing a comet into the Earth.
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.

Owing to the short production schedule, this series is primarily animated through xerography using the actual comic book stories and artwork published by Marvel Comics with minimal animation. See more »
Who cares about the animation. These are the BEST of any comic book inspired cartoons.
I ran home from school many days to catch these on TV in the 70s and 80s. They were released on VHS back in the late 90s but you can usually find them on DVD at any Comic book convention.
My question is: does ANYONE know where they got the music from? Not the theme songs but the soundtracks that would play during the episodes... that music ROCKED! I would like to know who composed the soundtrack music and where I can possibly buy it at. Most of my leads have turned up empty but maybe someone who reads this has some info.
