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...

BEST MARVEL SERIES OF THEM ALL
9 June 2004 | by (Brooklyn, NY) – See all my reviews

Yeah, yeah, sure the animation is less fluid than Stephen Hawking at a breakdancing contest, but the stories are classics! And while there's no excuse for the whole "cut out" look of the series is rather odd, the art is by some of the masters of the Marvel Age of comics (except for wherever the so-called animators stepped in to move Thor's eyebrow or some other such bit of mind-blowing animation). And best of all: both the Sub-Mariner and Iron Man were voiced by John (Dean Wormer from ANIMAL HOUSE) Vernon!

But be that as it may, these cartoons are best remembered for some of the catchiest theme tunes ever, which also happen to have among the worst lyrics ever penned by a sentient life form. Case in point: during the Hulk's theme song there is the jaw-dropping attempt at rhyming "gamma rays" with "unglamorous," only for that added zing they sing "unglamorous" as "unglamor-ays." I swear to God I'm not making that up! And that line from the Sub-Mariner's jingle about "stronger than a whale, he can swim anywhere;" what, does that mean the guy can swim at Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles? In my cat's litter box? 60.000 feet in the sky over Yemen? Man, what was Stan Lee (who allegedly wrote these gems) smoking? Ah, the Sixties...
