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...

great characters,cheesy cartoons, fond memories.
2 May 2004 | by (monster island) – See all my reviews

In 1969,when I was a wee lad o' five,a hometown TV station, channel 19,went on the air.Their schedule consisted of a lot of recently cancelled network fare and a truly great line up of kid-oriented programming.Flintstones,Ultraman,Spider-Man and of course, the Marvel superheroes.It was my first exposure to great characters like the Mighty Thor,the Incredible Hulk (who scared me just a little),Iron Man,Captain America, and the Sub-Mariner.

Okay, so maybe the animation was sub-par, even when compared to other cartoons made at the time.The animators, working on a tight budgets and schedules,took their storylines directly from the comics, actually clipping panels from the comic books themselves to use in the animation.I didn't care. I was five. What did I know? After all the characters were colorful and neat,especially the villains and the stories were quickly-paced and action packed.

It's 35 years later...Life is a little more complicated,Channel 19 was eventually swallowed up by the Fox corporation,and these old cartoons still posess a strange appeal.I recently purchased the entire series on DVD and have enjoyed seeing them again in all their cheesy glory.

Interestingly enough, I found out years later than Iron Man (and a few other characters) were voiced by John (Dean Wormer in "Animal House") Vernon. Chris Wiggins (from the syndicated "Friday the 13th" TV series) voiced Thor.
