Cartoons! And cereal! It’s a great day for both. My daughter and I finished Avengers Assemble, so we are working our way through Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. It’s a fun show full of Hulks. We have classic Hulk, Red Hulk, She-Hulk, A-Bomb (who is Rick Jones), and Skaar (who in the comics is the son of Hulk, I think). Also, we must have missed an episode, because Devil Dinosaur is there, hanging out. (note: we did miss an episode where the gang goes to the Savage Land and adopt DD)
But back to the show at hand. The Agents of S.M.A.S.H. are centered in Vista Verde, which is the town in which Bruce Banner became the Hulk. Hulk is a bit worried about the town, as things just keep attacking. Mayor Stan Lee tries to convince him to stick around, but Hulk just doesn’t know what to do. Luckily a huge maggot bursts up and attacks the town. I say luckily, because at least in that situation, Hulk knows what he should do. It starts with S and ends with H. Give up? SMOOSH. Or smash I guess.
So Hulk and A-Bomb investigate where the maggot came from and end up falling deep, deep down into the Earth. Where do they end up? With the Moloids, who are very quick to crown Hulk their new king. But all is not as it seems down there, and a certain Mole Man does make an appearance, but is he the bad guy? (Spoiler: No. No he isn’t.)
It’s a fun show. I think it’s more light-hearted than the Avengers show, and is down in a very different way. The whole premise of the show is that it is a reality TV show made by Jones. So there are times when we cut away from the action to a “confession cam” where the team can put in their opinions of what is happening. There are also cameras that follow around each member and record all the events. All in all, an enjoyable watch, although Red Hulk will never be one of my favorites, but I don’t think he is supposed to be.
