It's clear to me that comics & television writer Jeph Loeb (ex-Heroes) has forgotten what makes a superhero cartoon so special in this day & age. If not forgotten, he simply doesn't care if people don't like his product.
On his watch, DisneyXD's Marvel Universe block is a mess. He decided that Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes had to be sacrificed in favor of a more watered down show aimed at younger viewers (Avengers Assemble, previously reviewed). His other shows have too many bells & whistles to distract the viewers from how bad the writing is.
Case in point: Hulk & the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., which premiered last month. It's not enough that Hulk is also part of Avengers Assemble, but that show is meant to be a spin-off from last year's "Avengers" movie. No, he gets to lead his own team, but he's better off if they'd adapted The Defenders. At least there's a chance they'd have gotten that one right.
As for the rest of the team:
*-She-Hulk: Jennifer Walters is Bruce (Hulk) Banner's cousin, who gained her powers via a blood transfusion from her cuz in the comics more than 30 years ago. She still practices law, but she's so enamored with being a green Glamazon, that she rarely reverts to her former self. She's there for the teenage boys to drool over.
*-A-Bomb: Rick Jones is one of Hulk's oldest friends in the comics. Some genius at Marvel decided to make him a blue Hulk.
*-Red Hulk: General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross was an enemy of ol' Greenskin way back in the day. As with Jones, someone at Marvel decided it was a cool idea to make him a Hulk. Oh, yeah, he's also Bruce's father-in-law, and Bruce's wife, Betty, was turned into the Red She-Hulk in the comics. The only way Red She-Hulk joins the party is if this show is renewed for a 2nd season.
*-Skaar: Believe it or else, this guy fills the brainless brute void left by the Hulk himself. Worse than that, he was introduced in the books as Hulk's illegitimate kid, the result of a liason with some alien warrior princess.
Co-Executive Producer Joe Quesada can take the blame for the last three, as they were all developed on his watch as Editor-in-Chief. The episode I watched On Demand features a guest appearance by Spider-Man (Drake Bell), and so this is along the same stupid line as Ultimate Spider-Man. Someone do us a favor and chain Quesada & Loeb to some dead cacti?
Here's a sample clip:
If you're a comics purist, watch at your own risk. If you're the target demo, ask your older siblings to help you understand this twaddle.
