The Super Hero Squad Show: Volume One (2009) Review
(More customer reviews)Great show for my kids but also some in jokes for those of us who know the real Marvel characters and a couple of puns that will go right over kids' heads. My biggest and guess only complaint is that there is only 7 out of the 26 episodes from the first season. It appears to be the first seven episodes. The stories on the show are minimally based on any actual classic Marvel story (although the episode title screen is a re-imagined comic cover). Basic good guy vs. bad guy with main characters of Iron Man, Hulk, Surfer, Thor, Falcon, Wolverine, Reptil vs. Dr. Doom, Abomination and MODOK. A lot of esoteric guest characters and every character is given one obvious personality quirk. Again this is really for little kids but you'll laugh too.
The episodes are:
And Lo...A Pilot Shall Come!
This Silver, This Surfer!
Hulk Talk Smack!
To Err is Superhuman!
A Brat Walks Among Us!
Also there's bonus features of an interview with Stan Lee, the video of the theme song and a trailer for the video game.

When the greatest heroes on the planet unite to face the wickedest villains in the world, you get the biggest, most family-friendly Super Hero alliance in TV history . . . the Super Hero Squad! It is no small job protecting Super Hero City from the wild, weird and even wacky villainy of the infamous baddies of VillainVille. . . but Iron Man, Wolverine, the Hulk, the Silver Surfer, Thor and the Falcon are always up for the job. Together the Squad must keep the allies of Dr. Doom 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. Featuring the guest voices of Adrian Pasdar (Heroes), Robert Englund (A Nightmare On Elm Street), Tricia Helfer ( Battlestar Galactica), Greg Grunberg (Heroes), James Marsters (Buffy The Vampire Slayer), Lena Headey (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) and Stan Lee!
