"We are thrilled to have Cartoon Network as the U.S home for the show and appreciate the hard work everyone at the network has put into making this deal come to fruition," said Eric Rollman, Marvel's President of Animation commented. "Marvel Super Hero Squad represents many firsts for Marvel in that it's our first Marvel Universe show inclusive of characters from across the many worlds of Marvel and our first action series with a humorous twist. The commitment both Marvel and Cartoon Network have made to this show should establish it as an evergreen fixture for both companies for many years to come." So what's it all about, True Believers?

Shouting "Hero Up!" as they rush into battle, the Squad must keep Dr. Doom's allies 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. Superstar voice talents slated to play the roles of the dynamic heroes and villans of include: Tom Kenny ("Spongebob"), Charlie Adler ("Transformers 1 & 2"), Steve Blum ("Wolverine and the X-Men," "Hulk Vs.") and Grey DeLisle ("Fairly Oddparents" and "The Replacements").

Old thread and all, but new to me.Did nobody here watch the ultimate avengers movies? Those were pretty great, imo.Aside from that, I agree with everything on this thread, even if I wish it could have been a bit friendlier.

As an animation student, I really have to step in here...half you people have no idea what the hell you're talking about. For starters; Animation is not Art. You're all bitching about character models (although considering Bruce Timm rocks the stylization look so much he changed his style three times to make it simpler I'm wondering why that is) but here's a little history lesson for you boys and girls; the first rule in designing a character model for animation (feature film, anime AND especially TV) is to keep it simple. Jim Lee level detail is a thoroughly retarded idea because you have to draw those models over and over and over again on high quality cells, and that’s just for characters hanging around talking. That’s twelve drawings for one second of animation, and that’s just standard stuff. Try (and I know a lot of you won’t because even spelling it out for you like this you have no idea what I’m actually telling you) and put into context how many frames of that you’d have to do for a fight. And I’m talking a fight like Avatar, Samurai Jack, Spectacular Spider-Man and JLU. Think about how much time and money I takes just for the average stuff, never mind fully choreographed fight scenes like what’s in those shows. Consistently. You want that, on whatever budget you have, you need to keep your character designs simple so you can animate them to the best of your ability. To add to that photo realism in animation always, ALWAYS looks as much like ass as it moves like ass. So go to hell whoever said these things are 'drawn on teh computorrrrr!!!1! because a large majority of cartoons on TV right now are hand drawn. Computer coloured and computer recorded, sure, but guess where that started? The 90’s. More than likely your childhood. Which had it’s share of made-for-kids garbage, and you know it. If you genuinely don't like the art, fair enough, but again, there's the Bruce Timm angle. Why does he get a free pass? Guys like Sean Galloway (Spectacular Spider-Man), Mike Weringo (one of the greatest modern artist for the Wally West Flash and a tragic loss in death), Chris Blatcho, Darwyn Cooke, and Mike Mingola (Hellboy) work their **** off as hard as he had, with similar styles. You going to have a problem with them on principle too? Another little fun fact. Mingola hand picked Galloway for his Hellboy DTVs. everyone bitched. Everyone turned it into a big corporation like Film Roman (who's a flash in the pan compared to a pile of grease like WB or Disney) cheaping out on the little guy and spitting in their faces. And Mingola chose the guy. He was involved every step of the way; story, design, everything. And since Galloway’s name is synonymous with Spectacular Spider-Man; if you people bitch about the art, animation and writing of what is essentially to Spidey what BTAS was to Batman, you know jack about art and animation and **** all about writing. The lead writer and guy in charge is Greg Wiseman. Burn that name into your brain, because he wrote the one show that stands shoulder to shoulder with shows like Batman and Avatar: Gargoyles. Disney’s most controversial and well loved series. Safe to say, he knows exactly what he’s doing. Especially since he’s a big time Lee/Ditko fan. Backing him up are Matt Wayne and Kevin Hobbs, two of the lead writers on JLU. If that line up doesn’t inspire confidence, I have no sympathy for you. You deserve the misery you're drowning in because it’s entirely self inflicted. Granted, Super Hero Squad isn’t going to be anything like JLU or Spectacular Spidey, but why in the hell would you ask it to be? Kids aren’t allowed something? Worse case scenario, you guys are unhappy (and God knows YOU‘RE so ****ing important), and if this thread is any indication it truly doesn’t take much to make you unhappy, and turn off the TV. If those of you who have kids like it, what are you going to do if they do? Shove them in the corner? I'm probably not going to care how this show does, but I'll give it the benefit of the doubt. You guys are automatically up in arms hammering away at your keyboards about how this isn't going to meet your 'standards'. Given how the majority of you tailor your 'standards' to nostalgia…yeah. Most of you don’t have standards at all. Throw in the general ignorance of what animators and character designers actually do, HAVE to do, how little credit, thanks or pay they get, and the fact the second the legendary Bruce Timm put out stuff like Superman: Doomsday and other DCU DTV’s that WEREN’T from the DCAU and the hypocrisy of the majority of people on this thread is unsurprising, but sickening nonetheless.The animation industry needs a kick up the ass. I know that. Good God in Heaven, but I know that. I also know it won't come from people like you anytime soon. Not if you're too busy eviscerating everything that doesn’t have the nostalgia and perfectionist tags, because nothing will. I honestly believe that if Bruce Timm saw how you ‘adults’ act he wouldn’t give you the time of day. Not if your ten seconds away from burning effigies and blaming kids. And because I love pissing off people who go ape **** over the delusion that everything is ‘Done on computers’, here’s an inspiring video from animation legend Ralph Bakshi (look him up):http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WApcUBcVMos&feature=channel_page

Okay, whoever put up the Bruce Timm post is a genius. We, as fans, must at least give it as much of a chance as a Howard The Duck 2, but it might be pretty dumb, like Armored Adventures looks (Tony is not a kid!), or DC's new show Batman: The Brave and the Bold's plots (I have watched it), but hey, it might be good.A JLU-style Avengers would be wicked good, though... :venom:

first off if Marvel makes an adult oriented hero animated series cartoon network would be perfect, adult swim would be greatly enhanced by a deadpool series w/lots of gore and crazy obscene violence. But guys let the kids discover the heroes in a more family oriented way. I do agree though , with the animation on most of these shows being second rate, do any of these producers ever watch "ghost in the shell" that is the level I expect from any Marvel cartoon adult or child oriented.

[quote@Mekairinek crazye1979: I respectfully disagree.After 10 years, I'm thoroughly SICK of the whole BTAS/Justice League style of stuff. This looks like fun! Besides, I really enjoyed a lot of the cartoons you're slagging on and well heck, I enjoyed 'The Batman' and especially 'Batman: The Brave and the Bold' (or whatever the new Bats toon is titled), because they're not like BTAS/Justice League.And in case you're forgotten, by the way, this is a KIDS CARTOON. I truly feel sorry for you if you can't even give a cartoon a fair shake. I bet you haven't even watched more than one episode of the cartoons your slagging on.[/quote] I respectfully disagree. Just because its a childs cartoon dosn't mean it needs to be dumbed down. I mean if the comics were good enough for us when we were children why cant it be good enough for todays children? When we were kids we didn't need the the characters to say 'hero up!' or any stupid stuff like that. Why is this the case with todays children? And how can anyone be sick of the DCAU cartoons? All of todays cartoons are mediocer and all of todays action cartoons are horrible. BTAS was one few action cartoons I didn't laugh at. Wanting DCAU to end simply because your tired of it is another thing I disagree with. You honestly wanted it to end for shows like' The Batman' or the even worse 'Batman Brave and The Bold'? I have BTAS on DVD and my 7 year old brother prefers it to 'The Batman' Which is proof that you don't need to dumb down good storys for children. I showed him the trailer for Batman Brave and the Bold and the first thing he said was 'What is that??!' I responded to him 'thats the new batman cartoon' he responded 'your kidding that cant be the new batman cartoon whatabout the ones on your DVD?' I said to him they don't have it anymore, there gonna have this in its place. He said but its not batman at all why cant they have the cartoon on your DVD? This new show will bomb and be the next big joke marvel is embarrased about. It will be right up there with the 90s avengers cartoon.

I just don't get it. Why is it that a show show cannot be launched showing the characters the age they are in the comics. Instead, they dish out shows with superheroes as youngsters. I loved the Justice League/JL Unlimited then the show is cancelled as we get it back with youngsters. Now we get a teenage Iron Man (screw the backstory) and this show. Wolverine and the X-Men is actually decent but it looks like it's the only show that will not focus on the characters de-aged as with the forthcoming stuff. Batman: The Brave and the Bold I watched a bit but I would prefer to see Batman not hook up with another hero for an episode instead of playing what appears to be a mentor role. I guess I'll just watch my JLU DVDs when times were good.

At what point did comic book fans turn into an obstructionist party based on a "mine" mentality???It seems like every time I come on the boards and ANYTHING new (And I LITERALLY MEAN [u] ANYTHING [/u] ) is announced, there is a very vocal group who heralds it as the next coming of Galactus. RELAX PEOPLE. If you don't like a cartoon when it airs... don't watch it! You all sound as if you are throwing your arms in the air and screaming, "Thanks a lot Marvel, ONE MORE cartoon I am forced to watch and hate!!!" Here's a thought... TURN OFF THE TV!I could go through and list all the cartoons Marvel made and my opinions of them, but that wouldn't make my opinions fact as some seem to think on this site. Your opinion remains an opinion, no matter where you post it online. I was a little ambivalent towards a few Marvel cartoons at first (Spectacular Spider Man and Avengers comes to mind immediately), but my life went on, as did Marvel comics and their media branches.By the way, once I got past the animation style I disliked about Spectacular Spider Man and gave it a chance... Saw that the STORIES in it were great, and that they hired GRADE A voice actors.. I really realized I just judged the book by it's cover so to speak. Whats the worst case scenario here, Marvel puts out a cartoon [i] you[/i] dislike (but still watch so you can have the opportunity to scream how horrible it is), pick up a new generation of comic fans and sell some toys? Wow, that would be HORRIBLE!It seems to me that comic fans now-a-days are cutting off their noses to spite their faces. [As in] They would rather a cartoon or other media cross-over opportunity to bring in new fans to the industry be passed up if it doesn't fot their likes, which would choke out new growth and kill the industry. I say "kill the industry" in less than a figurative way due to the fact that we all die, and a large portion of the fans with such an extreme viewpoint of "their" characters are in their twilight years. Heck, I'm only 26 and I realize I won't be around forever, and I would like to know that my grandkids and great-grandkids will be reading Marvel comics.I also have a vested interest in new readership, as I am currently working my way to a few associate degrees in business management so I can open a comic shop by 30 (Hopefully). (WARNING - Copious amounts of capitalization to follow. Dont worry, I hid them so you wouldn't all be subjected to them, lol.) So, to all the "fans" who have called EVERY Marvel cartoon since the 70's a failure, [spoiler] (COME ON.. THE X MEN, SPIDEY AND SILVER SURFER ANIMATED SERIES ARE "HORRIBLE"??? THEY WERE AMAZING!!!)[/spoiler] to all the "Fans" who would want to horde "their" characters to be used in ONLY their generic cookie cutter cartoons scored by Danny Elfman and animated by the same crews as other comic book based cartoons, [spoiler] (DID I REALLY SEE SOMEONE BASH FF FOR THEIR ANIME STYLE AND THEN, IN THE SAME BREATH COMPLIMENT DC'S TEEN TITANS FOR BEING STYLISTICALLY EXPERIMENTAL???)[/spoiler] I say to you.. Calm down, turn off the TV for that half hour your much hated cartoon will air, and spend some time with family and friends. OR.. To all of you continuity buffs that want it transferred over to an animated medium.. Just cross your fingers and go through your back issues. There is LOADS of continuity there, go revel in it.But let our kids have some fun cartoons for Christ sake.

One of the first comic books I ever remember picking up was a Green Arrow comic book in which a man of a certain orientation (it blocks my words out when I typed a man who likes men) was beaten in a hate crime. I remember that as a seven year old (no joke) and going to my grandmother and asking her to explain it to me. I read Watchmen when I was 14 or 15 and telling all my friends about it who were getting into sports (which I played also, not the typical fanboy :) and they blew me off and now they are all kissing my rear end asking me to go to opening night of the movie with them.I know it's for little kids (Super Hero Squad) but I just want Marvel to put out QUALITY animation.. and it hasn't The straight to dvd stuff has been lazy and rushed and the TV stuff has been worse and dragged out longer...I'm not the comic book guy from the Simpsons. I'm a teacher in New York City with three college degrees and a passion for these characters who are finally breaking through to pop culture after years of me screaming at the top of my lungs that people should check this stuff out. I love Marvel comics... I want some good animated stuff, is that so much to ask? And I don't know what some dude was saying, I PRAISED stuff that wasn't in the same vein as Batman TAS like brave and the bold and the batman

Saying everything sucks is too easy. I'm saddened to see that the image 90% of the world's population has of comic book fans is the overcomplaining Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons, but it saddens me even more to see actual comics fans embracing that whiny attitude. I believe it is pretty clear that this is going to be a "first contact" kind of show, that will not require viewers to know 40+ years of continuity. It is obviously not targeted at us grizzled, old fans. It is, instead, a chance for us to introduce our kids to the wonderful Marvel universe without the burden of having to shove all that information down their throats. Besides, if TV shows adhered strictly to comic book continuity, we would have to be subjected to an animated version of the clone saga and Brand New Day, and I frankly don't think that would be such a good idea.I intend to see Marvel Superhero Squad with my daughter, and if she asks for the toys I'll be more than happy.

Yeah, at least wait until you see it in action before making outlandish, drama queen-worthy statements.Besides, here's a few reasons why it's gonna be better than you think:- The theme music is by one of the guys from the band Nerf Herder (who composed the theme for Buffy the Vampire slayer too)- It'll use tons of characters from the MU- A writer from Justice Leauge Unlimited (bolded so certain fanboys will see it) AND the creator of the 'Angry Beavers' (one of the best Nicktoons of all time) are heading up the writing duties.Seriously, some of y'all are forgetting that this is for kids too. But with the creator of the Angry Beavers, at least, there'll be subtle humor for adults thrown in too. I swear, comic fanboys these days are so silly. Y'all can hate it if you want, but at least watch some of it before making an informed opinion .

You are all wrong! When it comes to animation, Marvel is the best. And I'm sure MSS will be successful, too! think about it, these shows all can't be as you expect them to be. Iron Man: Armored Adventures- Would it be appropriate for children if Tony acted like he did in the movie? Besides, computer animation is always best Spectacular Spider-Man- How can you say this show is bad? Other shows in the 90's- I've seen all of them (re-runs on Disney XD), and all the story lines are awesome! Besides, even if you were right, what would you expect from a show from the 90's? You guys said Next Avengers would be bad, as soon as you heard about it and saw the trailer. Now that you've seen the whole movie, you can't say it was a dissapointment, nor will you say that to the new Iron Man series, or This new comedy, Marvel Superhero Squad. Marvel was always best at their movies, comics, or in this case, tv series, and always will be.Don't judge a book by it's cover. You're a dissapointment by saying this show will be bad before you even seen footage of it.You guys just aren't true believers.

Well, the concept looks fun, sure its not going to be a JLU, but Marvel is also realising later a more mature Avengers series, and atlesat these heores cartoons are on tv these days, mostly all of the cartoons are bad right now, at least bad for me, and its true, kids have more taste these days, they can handle more mature shows, well, lets just give this show a chance before start to complain about it

Im glad marvel is doing these kinds of shows to get kids into comics, otherwise we might be the last generation of comic books fans, and i wouldnt want this wonderfull art to disappear in the near future.However, i do agree marvel needs to do a show like Justice League Unlimited, that show was absolutely awesome and targeted especifically to the dedicated comic book fans. Marvel needs to do something similar using all of their greatest characters, and this has become more believable in the last few years since the New Avengers formed, which broke the mold of the same old roster of rotating members, and introduced the likes of Wolverine, Spiderman and Dr Strange to the Avengers. Just do an Avengers show that features all the Marvel characters, with a rotating cast of characters and some permanent members , (like Iron Man, Cap, Spiderman, Wolverine).By the way, i am really enjoying some current Marvel shows like Spectacular Spiderman and Fantastic Four (i havent seen Wolverine and the Xmen yet, but looks pretty good to me), however none of them are as good as JLU. Marvel needs an Avengers Unlimited.

When i was a kid i would have loved a show like JL. It doesnt have to be "kiddie" to appeal to kids. I love the 90's X-Men and Spider-man toons too, they did stray from the books, but i still liked them vey much.[/quote] I see your point but still who cares it still might be fun

For once an internet forum where most of the people posting are sane!How do I start an online petition? We'll start one to get Marvel to hire Bruce Timm no matter the cost! Give him all the profits from Iron Man 2 to be a Marvel Animation Exclusive contract!!!NO MORE MARVEL ANIMATED GARBAGE!!!After Spider-Man, Marvel would never let a piece of garbage like the Dolph Lundgren Punisher or the straight to video Captain America movie (although they get close with Fantastic Four and new Punisher movies, BADUMP TISS!)Then if they could crank out ONE, just ONE ANIMATED SHOW (not straight to dvd, oh yeah, that young avengers animated dvd sucked too, why not do one based on the real Young Avengers? I don't know, maybe it's just me) but if they could crank out just one show that meant as much, was as good as Batman: TAS, then we would never have to suffer this junk ever again!!!PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE MARVEL HEAR US!!!!!

What is it going to take to get Marvel's head out of its arse in the cartoon dept? Don't say "oh give it a break its for kids" because you know what, my 6 year old daughter loves the JL cartoon as much if not more so than my 11 year old son. Silly stories with 3 fingered Thors ain't gonna fly, KIDS ARE SMARTER THAN YOU THINK!!!!!Want to know what kids want, smart stories with real action. Kids don't want to be treated like babies, they don't want their intelligence insulted and they don't want crap. The first time someone yells "Hero up!" there will be a chorus of remote controls being clicked. Why is this so hard to understand? They have the books right there in front of them. There's a reason those stories are read and reread a thousand times over. There's a reason people use the word "Classic". Want an example of an enormously popular cartoon, Avatar. REAL stories and conflicts REAL drama and REAL humor. Why is it popular, because its not this dumbed down slop. Or how about Clone Wars, also on CN, noone is going around shouting "Jedi up!"Seriously, who's green lighting these things, a 32 old single man with no kids and no idea what they want? Every time, every single GD time one of these buckets of waste comes on the air Angel loses his wings because the kids that see it will think the comics are just like the cartoons. Thats a great way to run a company, or ruin it.

can't we give this a chance?i mean, sure the characters are all baby-ish looking, but it doesn't mean you have to hate it by looking at the cover (though it does look weird)and i personally don't think that the spectacular spiderman and x-mens is stupid.and why would anyone hate a cartoon?

Spectacular Spider-Man = unwatchable, pour yourself a cold cup of bleach and drink it.Marvel animation blows, it looks like amateur hour every time, no class, no creativity. They take everything that made the characters great and replace them with whoever's bright idea for the minute.Avengers are a great example, I think when that show came out both Thor and Cap's rights were tied up somewhere else, so instead of waiting they green lit that piece of garbage, and the only character that had even close to their real costume was the Scarlet Witch, even Vision they messed with!!!Then they all get supersuits or whatever for the sake of selling garbage toys that are probably still on the shelf at Wal Mart where most of you dopes get your groceries. Marvel Animation = low class compared to anything that DC has done since they've had any association with Warner Bros., which is at least since 1989 when Batman with Michael Keaton came out... So here's to twenty more years of DC showing why it's the classier outfit for this sort of thing... Danny Elfman won't be scoring a marvel cartoon anytime soon.Batman: TAS garnered as much respect as The Sopranos from people in the know, and I can't remember one episode of one marvel cartoon with the exception of X-Men (90's) and the only episode that was memorable out of that show was Final Decision when Magneto bled in the beginning of the episode (which in subsequent reruns they colored a dark maroon to not upset the kiddies and Marvel's lawyers) and saved the X-Men at the end of the episode.Other than that, the only stuff I remember is Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends because I was just psyched to see Spidey animated when I was a kid.

Come on guys dont be like that. Marvel is simply trying to appeal to a younger audience as well as everyone else. Why not introduce great characters to kids, that way they will like them and grow up watching and reading them. It is a very smart idea to attract them as early as possible and Marvel is still keeping our intrests too with their upcoming Hollywood movies. If you dont like it then dont watch it, but dont slam it just cuz its on Cartoon Network. As I recall comics were aimed at a younger audience to begin with, so were the nerds who cant grow up and let our beloved heroes go. I personally think it might be kinda funny, i'll watch a few epasodes to see if they get it right with some of the character's origions like Thor and Silver Surfer. But dont slam a kids show just because it has our characters in it.

Fantastic Four: World's Greatest Heroes... should be called World's Worst Cartoon... Worst Depiction of Marvel's First Family...It looks like it was filmed by NHK TV in Tokyo and the film got hot coffee and rain spilled all over it, it's brand new and it looks old and dubbed... Ever see the Turkish Spider-Man show on Youtube, that has more to do with Spider-Man than that show has to do with the FF...Oh yeah, the Iron Man and FF show from the 90's, there's another couple of Emmy Award winning shows.. PFFFFFFFFFFFFFFT! Get your acts together... You have an Iron Man movie and the cartoon only comes out years later and has nothing to do with what just made you millions of dollars. You crank out a Punisher movie and let them have his family killed in Puerto Rico for no good reason... IF IT AIN'T BROKE DON'T FIX IThorrible horrible horrible

X-Men Evolution was awful also, messed with continuity and the animation team was garbage.Now finally we are getting the X-Men animated series from the 90's on dvd but it doesn't matter since that is on Jetix (Disney XD, ABC Family, whatever it's calling itself this week)That channel is great to watch the parade of marvel animation doo doo. Let's reflect, shall we? Silver Surfer--Tried to look like Jack Kirby, points for creativity and use of some computer graphics, mostly garbageIncredible Hulk--How did the version of the Hulk that was on after Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends have better stories than a show written in the late 90s?Avengers: United We Stand or whatever-- Not even wasting my time responding to that steaming floater. Spider-Man from the 90's-- Another continuity skewing cartoon that only tapped the worst story lines from the comic books and didn't even do those correctly (Secret Wars, Clone Saga) actually made the print versions of those stories look readableThanks a lot Marvel, I'm glad I spent thousands on your comic books but don't ever ask me again to watch anything animated from you guys... I give up

They finally are making a show that crosses the usual team boundaries, they have all the rights to all of their characters and they could put out a Justice League type show that is intelligent and builds on the actual history of all the characters and they're going to crank out this baby garbage?Between this, the new X-Men cartoon which is buried on a channel that most people don't even know they have (Nicktoons) and the new Iron Man cartoon being almost completely devoid of any real character continuity... are they trying to ruin the characters? Spectacular Spider-Man is awful (give Peter Parker a mole, that makes sense!) Meanwhile DC continues to show them up.... The Batman... awesome, Batman Brave and the Bold... awesome... upcoming movies and Marvel continues to not put out a single good animated feature.Dr. Strange...awful...

Hulk Vs... just okOn top of this they keep gettin animation teams that provide no distinction between that an anything else animated on TV... can't say that about the stylized look of Justice League (Bruce Timm) and Teen Titans (cash in on Anime popularity) Marvel, what happened to you?You have the best characters (one's with flaws, not Gods like DC) many of the characters based out of NYC where I grew up and live... and you continue to crank out garbage... WTF?
