Disney XD's Marvel Universe
Currently featuring Ultimate Spider-Man, Avengers Assemble, and Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.


I've been following Spidey religiously, and while the humor can elevate to cringe-inducing levels at times, I've had a pretty fun time with it altogether. But they still don't make very good use of the rest of the team, which I hope they work on a lot for the third season.

Hulk's been decent, but five episodes in and I'm still not very impressed. A-Bomb tries too hard to as the impulsive kid, Red Hulk tries too hard as the self-centered jerk, and She-Hulk and Skaar barely feel like they're there.

I like the ultimate spider man series. Then again my sense of humor is that of a 7 year old which seems to be the target audience for the show so I end up laughing at most of their jokes.

Yay, Devil Dinosaur's in the series now. But I can't see them using him very much.

I miss Moon Boy. Maybe the second season...

So, wait, the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. paid for a new miniature golf course? With what money?

Thunderbolt Ross must still have government connections...

RE: Disney XD's Marvel Universe
Hulks fighting Frost Giants is a battle that really lends itself to some interesting visuals, and they went really easy on them. I wish they'd dedicate a little more smashing to this show, especially since Ultimate Spider-Man puts in some good action shots once the plan's been developed.

Speaking of which, I liked how they adapted to that giant fight at the end of the Halloween episode. Got a mammoth mummy problem? Find a Man-Thing solution.

Superhero Sandman actually could have worked well for Ultimate Spider-Man's pliable continuity, but I suppose the lesson to be learned was valuable.

And finally, some decent smashing. The Agents of S.M.A.S.H were throwing every weapon they had at those bugs.

Nice lead up to the finale, with Norman as The Goblin again and wishing to infect others the same way.

Hulk kind of dragged, when the solution to the Wendigo problem was obvious early on. I think they could have done more with the idea that he's the only one who can resist his rage, despite which form he takes. More like the Avengers Assemble episode when he proved himself to Black Widow.

RE: Disney XD's Marvel Universe
As of this point I've only seen Season 1 and bits of season 2 of Ultimate Spiderman and all of The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
Both were fun enough to watch, but the Avengers one was sort of weird to follow. All of the storylines made sense and fit, but I guess it felt like they were jumping around a bit? Not entirely sure what bugged me about that show.
Hows does Avengers Assemble compare to that? If anyone can answer.

Consensus seems to be that it doesn't take itself as seriously as the old show, and of course the cast has been cut down tremendously.
