When an idea is successful, you recycle it as much as possible. Take Marvel Comics’ Civil War, the great maxi-series that pitted Iron Man against Captain America over civil rights issues. The story was a bit different but still roughly the same and just as successful with the last Captain America film of the same name. They tried again this past year with Civil War II with less than satisfactory results. Now the name Civil War comes to Avengers: Ultron Revolution. Meet me after the jump to see how it works out, with my review of “Civil War, Part One: The Fall of Attilan.”
With the Red Hulk turned into a “perfect weapon” by the Leader last episode, the Avengers, without their own Hulk, have to stop the bigger, badder, and hotter Rulk by themselves. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on the latest episode of Avengers: Ultron Revolution – “World War Hulk!”
At the close of the last episode of Avengers: Ultron Revolution, government stooge Truman Marsh fired the Hulk from the team, and replaced him with the Red Hulk. Not fitting in is only the beginning of the Red Hulk’s problems. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “Building the Perfect Weapon.”
In the face of the new super-villain team, the U-Foes, the animated Avengers also must contend with a new government liaison, who seems to have it in for the Hulk. Trouble and terror abound in this new episode of Avengers: Ultron Revolution, meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “U-Foes.”
When last we left the Avengers, after a skirmish with the Inhumans, the two teams made friends, and witnessed the birth of a new Inhuman, Inferno. But behind the scenes, one of the Inhumans, Seeker, reported to Ultron, not good news. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “The Inhuman Condition.”
The Inhumans have by and large replaced mutants in the Marvel Universe. From being major plot points in comics events like Infinity and Civil War II to propelling the last two seasons of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the Inhumans are the big new thing, and now the animated Avengers have got them. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “Inhumans Among Us.”
It’s Halloween (yes, in April) on “Avengers: Ultron Revolution,” and Doctor Strange drops by to ask Earth’s mightiest heroes for help against his archenemy the dread Dormammu. Get ready for sorcery supreme and meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “Into the Dark Dimension.”
This past year of television has seen the rise of “The Flash,” in my opinion, the best comic book superhero series yet, now the “Avengers Assemble” team face the Marvel Animated Universe’s closest approximation of the Flash, a member of that ersatz evil Justice League – the Squadron Supreme – the Speed Demon. This sinister speedster’s invasion of Avengers Tower has turned the Hulk into a gamma bomb, can he be stopped? Meet me after the super speed jump to find out.
When last we left the “Agents of S.M.A.S.H.” and the “Avengers Assemble” teams, they were confronted by a Kree Supreme Intelligence who had absorbed the mind of the Hulk. Can the heroes stop a Kree invasion and save their friend too? Find out after the gamma-irradiated jump.
Just because “Marvel’s Avengers Assemble” appears to be on a momentary hiatus, it doesn’t mean that Disney X-D isn’t producing new Avengers animation. My favorite animated heroes drop by “Marvel’s Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.” this week to show us why Hulk is so different in each series. Meet me after the gamma-powered jump for my thoughts.
