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...

coming to DVD
11 September 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

YES!!! It will be on DVD, but we'll have to wait until next year because its release will coincide with the summer 2005 release of the Fantastic Four movie ... For those of you unfamiliar with the Marvel Superheroes series, it was a 1966 item that came from Grantray-Lawrence Animation. It featured Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, The Mighty Thor, Iron Man, and The Sub-Mariner (better known these days as "Namor"). Each character had their own sub-series within the main show, and there were 13 episodes per character. That's 65 half-hour episodes in all, most of which have never been released to home video before (both Hulk and Iron Man had a handful of episodes released to VHS tape).
