Marvel Super Hero Adventures Frost Fight!: For the kids and the kids alone
Being a Marvel fan one thing that always frustrates me is the lack of demographic consistency. The animation can range from 15's down to U's and this one is certainly the latter.
In this adventure aimed directly at the tiddly winks the Avengers must team up with Rocket & Groot to stop Loki from gaining the power of Santa Claus.
Yep, that wasn't a typo. Santa is now part of the Marvel Universe I suppose and essentially has his own Christmas realm full of candy canes & gingerbread men.
As you can imagine the whole thing is very low-key (Pun intended) and childish. The animation is all very colourful, the action scenes are cutesy and the humour is aimed at the young.
The whole Santa Claus thing made it difficult to take any of it seriously, that and the addition of Reptil who Marvel just can't seem to stick with an ethnicity of. He was originally hispanic but I've seen both caucasian and african american incarnations.
Great for your kids, not so good for adults.
Humour is infantile
Reptil's ethnicity has changed repeatedly
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Ironman has a Stargate
