The Marvel Super Hero Squad began as an action figure line in 2007, only the heroes were super-deformed to make them younger and cuter-looking. They’re more cartoony and generally seem happier.
Marvel’s putting out comics and posters with these versions of the characters. And now, the Cartoon Network has announced a 26-episode animated series later this year.
Marvel Super Hero Squad is an action-packed show featuring super-stylized versions of its most popular characters including Captain America, Silver Surfer, Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man.
When the greatest heroes on the planet unite to face the world’s greatest villains, you get the biggest, most family-friendly Super Hero team-up in TV history… Super Hero Squad. It’s no small job protecting Super Hero City from VillainVille’s infamous criminals… but Iron Man, Wolverine, the Hulk, the Silver Surfer, Thor, and the Falcon are always up for the job.
Shouting “Hero Up!” as they rush into battle, the Squad must keep Dr. Doom’s allies from gathering pieces of the Infinity Sword. Otherwise, Doom will use the Sword to rule the universe! Luckily, the City is filled with Marvel Super Hero guest-stars to help out in a pinch. These brave heroes totally deliver the action — but with plenty of humor on the side.
Super Hero City? Really? And where are the girls?
